On an F53 chassis, the maximum configurable weight of 26,000 pounds is sufficient. This seemingly-arbitrary number doesn't work for a lot of diesel rigs.

Any one had experience with any iPhone gps apps?

I like Navigon USA. I also use Apple & Google Maps. Navigon USA & Google maps available from apps store. I set up Navigon as a truck. Keeps you out of subdivisions.

Make sure you have ActiveRoutes checked in the vehicle profiles. This settings triggers the use of Inrix historical routing data and makes the ETA much more realistic.

KC, Seems some folks had problems with routing, ie dead ends and off the road routs. Have you experienced issues?
