Truck satellite navigation systems manufacturer Performance Products Ltd, have launched their new Snooper TruckMate satellite navigation system that will help lorry drivers in the UK to avoid a multitude of potential problems.
Snooper TruckMate is a unique satellite navigation (sat nav) system that provides information on height restrictions, width and weight restrictions that will help prevent lorry drivers from taking impractical routes. Snooper TruckMate also includes information on commercial vehicle friendly routes which can help reduce journey times and minimise the environmental impact of transporting goods.
Snooper TruckMate will also help truckers to avoid future stories in The Daily Mail like the one about trucks trying to cross the River Severn using a foot ferry !
When this satellite navigation system is first used, the truck driver enters the vehicles weight, height, width and length, then the sat nav system automatically provides recommended routes that can accommodate the vehicle.
Low bridges and sharp bends will no longer be a problem for truck drivers using the Snooper TruckMate sat nav system; it also helps to reduce problems and congestion caused by the need for drivers to turn around and retrace their routes.
Snooper TruckMate is an eco-friendly sat nav system that includes the option to take commercial vehicles on truck-friendly roads which have fewer stops and have lower inclines, therefore reducing stress on the engines and lowering truck emissions. When this is combined with the dynamic re-routing feature which adjusts the route for potential delays caused by traffic hold ups, it will have a significant impact on both time on the road and environmental impact.
