CONCORD, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — August 3, 2011 — TomTom today announced the availability of Commercial Vehicle Restrictions integrated into TomTom PRO navigation solutions. In some states, business vehicles can be restricted from using particular roads and classification varies by state and any vehicle that bears commercial license plates must adhere to these regulations. With Commercial Vehicle Restrictions content, drivers will receive safe, legal and efficient routes for restricted vehicles.
“Business drivers can now leverage easy-to-use TomTom navigation that also encompasses key commercial vehicle travel restrictions to ensure they are on the right roads and adhering to applicable restrictions,” said Michael Geffroy, vice president of sales, North America for TomTom Business Solutions.
“Businesses with any size fleet need to optimize on-the-road operations and their fleet management solutions must enable drivers to easily reach their destination via smart and legally compliant routes so they can conduct their work with confidence and avoid unnecessary fines,” continued Geffroy.
The new offering demonstrates TomTom Business Solutions commitment to helping fleets operate with increased efficiencies. TomTom recently introduced Active Driver Feedback and WEBFLEET OptiDrive™, which are designed to further increase safety and efficiency for businesses, and TomTom HD Traffic*, the most accurate, comprehensive and up-to-date traffic solution available. With TomTom HD Traffic, fleet drivers can spend less time in traffic and get to their destination faster.
Commercial Vehicle Restrictions are available in North America on the TomTom PRO 7150 and TomTom PRO 9150. Current devices owners will be able to update their software with this new feature in late Q3.
