A new in-dash GPS-navigation system is now available on Peterbilt's Model 387.

The Alpine DVD Vehicle Navigation System gives drivers turn-by-turn visual and audio directions as they travel toward their destination, tracking the vehicle's location and speed to help ensure exits and turns are never missed.

“The navigation system allows our customers to enter a street address or phone number and receive detailed, step-by-step directions for getting there,” said Peterbilt assistant gm Dan Sobic. “Not only will this increase efficiency and productivity, but it also provides drivers with added peace of mind.”

Users can input information and control the system via a 4.6-inch color display monitor or a wireless remote. System features include map zoom, destination search, detour routing, landmarks and points-of-interest display, and a GPS clock that keeps accurate time, even when time zones are crossed.
