TomTom has introduced the new Trucker 600, a GPS device designed specifically for truck drivers. The company says it provides accurate, vehicle-relevant navigation, map updates, and traffic analysis – for the lifetime of the device – all in one package.

According to TomTom, the device allows truckers to plan a journey before leaving, and when they climb into the cab the navigation device will be programmed, ready and waiting. Planning a journey from the office, the truck stop, or a stayover, can be done using the MyDrive web app. The company said this even takes into account truck weight, type, size, and cargo to find the perfect route.

The Trucker 600 offers relevant truck-specific information such as bridge heights, relevant truck routes, and road restrictions.

The device has a 6-inch touchscreen with tablet style pinch, zoom and swipe controls. It can be docked and undocked easily with its ‘Click & Go’ magnetic mount, increasing security. Of course, it can also be used in a driver’s personal vehicle.
