TomTom, known for its navigation devices, sport watches and action cameras, has created a GPS designed for professional truckers.
The TomTom Trucker 600 delivers accurate, vehicle-relevant navigation (bridge heights, road restrictions, truck routes), map updates and traffic analysis for the lifetime of the device.
Paired with the MyDrive app, truckers can plan a trip before getting in the cab. This takes into account truck weight, type, size and cargo to find a preferred route.
The device has a 6-inch touchscreen with tablet style pinch, zoom and swipe controls. it docks and undocks with TomTom’s Click & Go magnetic mount. The Truck 600 has 16GB of internal storage and has and microSD card slo
It comes with both lifetime map and TomTom Traffic updates.
“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.
While the Trucker 600 is, as its name suggests, built for the professional driver, it’s easy to use in the family car as well.
Available at travel centers.
