At last they have a HGV sat nav Cool Navteq have had the info for a long time Rolling Eyes

It's a pity it comes when we all have no money to buy it (credit crunch)

and when I've got the lifetime map updates for my 710 (none transfreable) Evil or Very Mad

I'll wait 5 years to see them get rid to any bugs it has and when the price comes down to been adfordable Embarassed Razz

Last time I checked, Navteq still had large parts of the UK unmapped for HGV specific data.

Why have a separate unit when they could have it in an existing unit like the 8 series as its only software, or am I missing something.

No, this unit looks like it's the 760/765 shell so no reason why it couldn't be done as an upgrade but they'll naturally want to sell the whole unit. Maybe it comes with a 24v charger?

At the end of the day its simpler to offer a truck specific unit than it is to offer an upgrade to an existing model which would cost more when the original purchase an the updated software/maps are taken into account?
