Drivers need a trucker-friendly GPS that won’t break the bank. Why pay top dollar for a fancy GPS when this Garmin nuvi gets the job done on a budget?
With a nice, bright screen that’s easy to read and a lifetime of map updates with turn-by-turn directions in any traffic, it’s easy to see why this is among the best GPS units for truck drivers.

We’ve all seen those pictures of trucks stuck under a bridge and it’s not a good look.
BlueParrott Bluetooth Wireless Headset
The BlueParrott is easily one of the most popular Bluetooth headsets for truck drivers. This Bluetooth boasts great audio quality that cancels out distractions such as engines and background noise for clear communication with friends and family.
Most importantly, however, is the safety factor. This entirely hands-free headset allows truckers to keep their attention where it should be – on the road ahead and vehicles around. While truckers aren’t going to win any fashion awards with this Bluetooth, the unmatched comfort more than makes up for it.
