Which units let you chose truck routes

I have read quite a few threads and remember seeing something about truck routes which will keep you off narrow roads, etc. But I can't find which brand/model has the option?
We are goin to New Zealand next year and want to take our own GPS, rather than rent for $200. Any suggestions?

There are NO WIDE roads in New Zealand in fact ALL the bridges are single lane with yield signs if you are the one required to stop. On the west coast of the South island I found one bridge that gave me the right of way but did not tell me what to do about the train.

The second picture is the new main road across the south island. It is 2 lane and 16% grade.

Take what you will want to keep with you because once there you may not want to come back. I discribe NZ by the fact that thier public bathrooms are cleaner than any hospital you will find here.

PM me if you want additional info.

Good Trip
