DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TomTom (TOM2) has created a GPS designed for professional truckers that 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 to 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. Plus it can be docked and undocked easily with the unique Click & Go magnetic mount – ideal for security.
The TomTom TRUCKER 600 will be available in September on tomtom.com.
