Delivering goods on time and safely can be challenging for truck drivers. One trucker, (without a Truck GPS) learned that the hard way when he followed his regular navigation device into a “No Trucks” route and narrowly escaped before his truck was hit by a train.
With that, a GPS device designed for truckers can be useful, and that’s just what TomTom has created with the TomTom Trucker 600.
The TomTom Trucker 600 allows drivers to customize their routes with their desired roads or stops, which they can sync with the truck’s GPS.
It also features up to four Truck Map updates annually at no extra charge and a traffic map that the company says will give drivers a quicker route. The company’s Lifetime Maps include both the United States and Canada.
Other features include the ability to control the device with one’s voice and lane guidance, which clearly highlights the appropriate lane to drive in at important highway exits or junctions. The latter could be useful on unfamiliar roadways.
And in addition to trucks, the device can also be used in buses, cars and vans.
The device features a Click & Go Mount and the size of its touch screen is six inches. Its battery provides a maximum of two hours of autonomous operation.
The TomTom Trucker 600 can currently be purchased for $299.99 with free shipping on Amazon.
