PrePass Weigh Station Bypass Available on Garmin dēzl OTR Truck Navigators

PrePass customers now have another option when it comes to receiving weigh station bypass notifications and green lights, saving them more time and money than ever before.

With an active PrePass account, users of Garmin’s latest series of dēzl over-the-road truck navigators, now receive on-screen, crucial PrePass notifications of upcoming weigh stations and bypass decisions on the same screen as their navigation and route guidance. This includes Garmin’s dēzl OTR700, OTR800, OTR1000 models and its new OTR500 model.

Garmin’s dēzl OTR series of GPS truck navigators gives professional truckers a clear view of the road ahead. PrePass joins an impressive list of features available on the dēzl OTR series including industry-leading load-to-dock guidance, popular truck routes, custom truck routing and more. The navigation devices boast bright, easy-to-see screens available in five and a half-inch, seven-inch, eight-inch and extra-large 10-inch sizes.

“PrePass and Garmin dēzl share the common mission to improve efficiency and safety for motor carriers,” said Mark Doughty, President & CEO of PrePass Safety Alliance, the provider of PrePass weigh station bypass service. “Integrating PrePass onto the dēzl platform provides customers seamless access to weigh station bypass notifications, extending the value of the device.”

Customers using the PrePass weigh station bypass with Garmin’s dēzl OTR series of GPS truck navigators have the option to add electronic toll payment services with PrePass Plus, an RFID-based service available only through PrePass. All PrePass services include access to PrePass INFORM™ software. INFORM helps motor carriers analyze bypass and toll activity to spot trends, improve safety scores, reduce the risk of toll fraud and provide new data insights into their operations.

Garmin products have revolutionized the truck driving experience with portable navigation solutions that provide time- and fuel-saving benefits. With the addition of PrePass weigh station bypassing to Garmin’s dēzl OTR series of truck navigators, owner-operators and fleets of all sizes can get where they are going quicker and more efficiently, saving them more time, fuel and money.

The integration of PrePass with the Garmin dēzl OTR devices is available with a software update. It requires an active PrePass account and use of the Garmin Drive app on a compatible smartphone. Available for use in the United States.
