~ Get the most out of driving time, through truck-specific routing and world-class TomTom Traffic information – now in a compact version~
Amsterdam, 2 September 2015 TomTom (TOM2) today announces an addition to its portable navigation device line-up, specifically for people who drive large vehicles for a living. The compact TomTom TRUCKER 5000, with a 5” screen size, ensures that drivers are on the right road because it includes customised routes for the user’s specific vehicle type, size, weight, cargo and speed.
Through award-winning TomTom Traffic(1) and advanced routing technology, drivers get a realistic ETA based on vehicle profile and real-time traffic information.
The TomTom TRUCKER informs drivers about traffic and speed cameras (2) on their route – the information is displayed in the route bar on the device – making users aware of the position of speed cameras, but also where the tail end of a traffic jam begins.
To avoid unnecessary surprises, the TomTom TRUCKER comes with Lifetime(3) Truck Maps at no extra cost. Users can always drive with the latest truck maps – updated four times per year. Other features include Advance Lane Guidance, which clearly shows which lane to take at junctions, and Speak & Go, which allows the driver to control the device with their voice.
The device has a 5” fully interactive screen – simply pinch, zoom and swipe – and it can be docked and undocked easily with the unique Click & Go magnetic mount.
The TomTom TRUCKER is also designed to be taken out of the professional driving environment and into the family car, thanks to the ability to choose from different vehicle types on the device.
TomTom TRUCKER 5000 is available immediately on the TomTom webstore, as well as at retailers from mid-September at a recommend retail price of EUR 349.99 . TomTom also offers a 6” version, the TomTom TRUCKER 6000.
