TeleType has released SmartTruckRoute, a truck routing Android application. SmartTruckRoute’s routing considerations include low bridge heights and clearances, load limits, one-way road designations, sharp turns and allowances.
The app also offers updated truck specific maps and routes, provides turn-by-turn instructions, gives dynamic routing based on size and weight of vehicle, which are user definable truck specifications, supports Hazmat restrictions by class to avoid tunnels and other restricted areas as appropriate and displays surrounding traffic and aerial views at no additional charge.
Users can use the phone’s built-in speaker to speak the destination address for safe and convenient hands free operation. Navigation does not interrupt other functions of the phone allowing for simultaneous talk and navigation.
SmartTruckRoute is available on Google Play. TeleType plans to also release the app for the iPhone and iPad.
