CONCORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TomTom Business Solutions, the division dedicated to commercial fleets, today 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 PRO 7150 saves time and money by ensuring that each trip is optimized and takes advantage of TomTom’s extensive map and traffic data.
With the PRO 7150 TRUCK, drivers will enjoy a navigation experience that automatically favors main roads over secondary roads, avoids sharp turns and U-turns, and includes a comprehensive 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; a clear 5-inch capacitive touch-screen to keep drivers relaxed and to minimize in-cab distraction.
TomTom has partnered with ProMiles, an industry leader in transportation solutions, to deliver the most comprehensive map attributes for commercial vehicles in the North American market today.
“ProMiles’ industry-leading commercial transportation data enhances the TomTom PRO 7150 TRUCK resulting in 17 times more last-mile commercial vehicle coverage,” says Michael Geffroy, Vice President of Sales, North America for TomTom Business Solutions. “Due to the complexities of commercial vehicle regulations and road restrictions, it is critical to collaborate with a partner that has a long standing expertise on trucking”
The PRO 7150 TRUCK includes nationwide map coverage of national and state/provincial highways in the U.S. and Canada, including last-mile restriction coverage in most major truck-relevant municipalities. The POI database contains more than seven million Points of Interest.
