TomTom has announced the newest version of its Logistics map product designed
specifically for truck and fleet operators. Use of its precise data can mean
increased driver and vehicle safety, improved fleet efficiency, and avoidance of
expensive fines, the company says. Users can avoid striking a low bridge or
accruing a large fine for carrying an oversized load.

Features include dimensional restrictions totalling more than 1.6 million miles
in the U.S. and 225,000 miles in Canada; designated truck routes for more than
400,000 miles in the U.S. and 60,000 miles in Canada; operating bans on idling
or ‘Jake’ brake usage totalling more than 180,000 miles in the U.S. and 80,000
miles in Canada; and critical last-mile content required to get a driver to the
final destination.

TomTom’s product is enabled by way of ProMiles. It appends to the standard map
product and can be merged with other TomTom enhancement products to enable
truck-relevant POI content as well as warnings for curves or steep grades.
