TomTom launches truck-specific system

Navigation specialist, TomTom Telematics, has launched a truck-friendly navigation system that aims to improve truck navigation, driver safety and business processes.

The TomTom PRO 8275 Truck provides dedicated routes for trucks based on dimensions, weight, hazardous cargo and maximum speed, allowing drivers to avoid bridges, small streets, sharp turns, U-turns and restricted roads as much as possible.

The PRO 8275 also works with TomTom Traffic, which helps predict and avoid traffic on both motorways and secondary roads.

The system can be customised with additional apps from TomTom Webfleet workflow to perform tasks such as vehicle checks, proof of delivery, paperless reporting, question paths and barcode scanning, and bespoke apps can be created and implemented using open APIs.

“Webfleet and the TomTom PRO 8275 TRUCK enables businesses to operate fleets more efficiently and safely, while improving customer satisfaction,” said Christopher Chisman-Duffy, Sales Manager at TomTom Telematics Australia.

“By providing both driver and back office information in real-time, everyone works better as a team and can make smarter decisions.”
