Micronet's Mobile Data Terminals are designed to enable full integration of commercial routing with fleet management and Mobile Resource Management (MRM) systems for optimized efficiencies

CINCINNATI, April 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- National Private Trucking Council Annual Conference 2008 -- Tele Atlas , a leading global provider of digital maps and dynamic content for navigation and location-based solutions, and Micronet, a developer, manufacturer and marketer of mobile data terminals and systems for fleet and mobile workforce management, today announced that Micronet will utilize Tele Atlas(R) Logistics(TM) in its fully autonomous mobile based routing and navigation system providing a commercial navigation solution specifically designed for the trucking and transportation industries.

Micronet's enhanced WinCE based Net960-CE series of MDTs are available in multiple configurations and are all designed to support a wide range of applications and services geared to optimize fleet and MRM operations. The Net960-CE will feature Tele Atlas Logistics, a comprehensive digital map database which combines commercial fleet routing attributes and restrictions with coast-to-coast coverage of interstate highways, access roads, state highways and local roads for seamless, connected routing. Based on vehicle configuration, load and the routing method selected the system will generate the most efficient route and provide turn-by-turn instructions. The superior geocoding functionality, rich map display and truck-specific attributes help enable turn-by-turn navigation for commercial carriers.

An advanced unified SDK provided by Micronet is designed to allow a quick integration of the routing and navigation functionality with applications such as dispatching, DOT logs and fuel tax reporting both on the mobile and server ends. With more than 25 years of experience, Micronet presently has deployed 190,000 mobile data units globally to a wide range of enterprises and industries.
