Cobra offers new navigation unit

Cobra Electronics 5550 Pro Navigation Unit

Cobra Electronics designed its 5550 PRO 5-inch navigation unit for professional drivers with features nearly identical to its larger sibling, the Cobra 7750 Platinum, including enhanced graphics, Junction View with Lane Assist, State Mileage Log and Hours-of-Service Log, along with last-mile routing for road coverage on secondary highways. The enhanced graphics and menu options offer added visibility in bright sunlight, along with an intuitive interface for added efficiency when scrolling through searches and configuration settings. The Quick-Tabs feature puts critical information – such as the distances to weigh stations, travel centers, rest areas and mile markers – at the driver’s fingertips. Junction View with Lane Assist provides drivers with 3D images of upcoming highway junctions as well as lane guidance and enhanced turn-by-turn directions. The State Mileage Log feature monitors miles driven within a state for IFTA reporting, and an Hours-of-Service Log timer makes it easier for drivers to track on-duty, off-duty and driving time.

The Cobra 5550 PRO includes more than 12 million standard points-of-interest (POIs) plus 33,000 truck-specific POIs. The truck-specific data, supplied by ProMiles and TruckDown Info International, includes routable travel center locations, detailed amenity information, fueling stations, restaurants, truck-friendly hotels, weigh stations, certified scales and heavy-duty towing, truck and trailer repair shops.
