TomTom Business Solutions has unveiled the TomTom PRO 7150 TRUCK, designed to provide truck drivers and fleet managers with automated routing that takes into account vehicle profiles and road attributes and restrictions. The system saves time and money by ensuring that each trip is optimized and takes advantage of TomTomís map and traffic data.
With the PRO 7150 TRUCK, drivers will have a navigation experience that automatically favors main roads over secondary roads, avoids sharp turns and U-turns, and includes a collection of truck attributes such as weight and dimension limitations to avoid low-bridge clearances, and load characteristics such as hazmat restrictions.
Safety-focused features include road restriction and dead-end warnings that automatically pop up when drivers are about to encounter danger; advanced lane guidance to easily maneuver difficult intersections; hands-free dialing; and a clear 5-inch capacitive touchscreen to keep drivers relaxed and minimize in-cab distraction.
TomTom has partnered with ProMiles to deliver comprehensive map attributes for commercial vehicles.
The PRO 7150 TRUCK includes nationwide map coverage of national and state/provincial highways in the United States and Canada, including last-mile restriction coverage in most major truck-relevant municipalities. The POI database contains more than seven million points of interest.
As part of the TomTom WORKsmart system, the PRO 7150 TRUCK offers connectivity to enable easy fleet management and access to LIVE Services. WORKsmart functionality includes vehicle tracking, job dispatching, time management, eco driving, IFTA fuel tax reporting interface via ProMiles, and management reporting via a TomTom WEBFLEET subscription. LIVE Services give drivers access to speed cameras, fuel prices, local searches powered by Google, TomTom weather, as well as TomTom HD traffic.
