More Efficient Journeys
The TomTom TRUCKER ensures efficient journeys by providing customized routes for a truck’s dimensions, weight, cargo and max speed, while giving a realistic arrival time. The GPS device includes over 1,500 travel center POIs.

Predict and avoid traffic
Traffic – both on highways and secondary roads – can be avoided with the TomTom TRUCKER, and alerts for imminent traffic ahead helps avoid sudden braking. The GPS navigation device also shows how far ahead the stopped traffic or accident blackspot points are, as well as locations where accidents are more common.

Mike Schoofs, Managing Director, TomTom Consumer, comments: “With the new TomTom TRUCKER, life on the road has just got that little bit more relaxed with traffic predictions, alerts and routes tailored to the size and weight of your vehicle – and even the cargo that you’re hauling. Plus, we’ve added Wi-Fi, so keeping your maps up to date is easier than ever.”

The TomTom TRUCKER 620, with its 6” screen is available to purchase on the TomTom webstore, Amazon, and at select National Travel Centers and truck stops. It retails for $329.99 USD / $429.99 CAD.
