TomTom provides GPS for truckers

TomTom (TOM2) has created a GPS designed for professional truckers who want a companion device to help reduce worry from the job. The TomTom TRUCKER 600 does exactly that. Truck drivers can get accurate, vehicle-relevant navigation, map updates, and traffic analysis —for the lifetime of the device—all in one package.

Truckers can now plan a journey before leaving, and when they climb into their cab the navigation device will be programmed, ready and waiting. Planning a journey from the office, the truck stop, or a stayover can be done using the MyDrive web app. This even takes into account truck weight, type, size, and cargo to find the perfect route—helping reduce even more worry from the job.

“We are excited to be able to deliver a GPS designed specifically for truckers, giving them all the relevant truck-specific information such as bridge heights, relevant truck routes, and road restrictions they need to complete their routes in a timely and hassle-free manner,” said Jocelyn Vigreux, president of TomTom Inc.

The TomTom TRUCKER 600 isn’t only designed for professional driving, though, as it can also be used in a driver’s personal vehicle.

The device has a 6-inch touchscreen with tablet-style pinch, zoom, and swipe controls. It also can be docked and undocked easily with the Click & Go magnetic mount—ideal for security.

The TomTom TRUCKER 600 is available as of September 2016. Access for more information.
