Sat nav for a truck

#1
I'm looking at buying a Garmin sat nav but as I will also be using it in my HGV at work what is the best choice?

I've looked at the Nuvi310/360 but not sure if they include bridge and weight limitations.

TOM TOM ?
Just make sure you get a SATNAV that will prevent you from driving into rivers or into bridges.

Read the reviews on Pocket GPS before you part with your money

Some of my more "techy" friends say that the PDA systems are better because there's more free* software and upgrades around.

I had a look and found many complaints from users who said it missed many major roads opting to send artics through windy villages instead of motorways, regularly freezes, height limits can only be set at round figures not exact height and the postcode search is useless.
