MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Shaw Tracking has announced the availability of Maptuit’s NaviGo on the OmniVision mobile computing platform.
Maptuit NaviGo is a two-way connected, real-time, hybrid, in-cab navigation service that provides professional truck drivers and trucking companies with interactive maps intended for increased routing efficiency and improved driver satisfaction, according to Shaw Tracking.
Connected navigation has become the number one efficiency for trucking companies looking for operational improvements, according to the CEO of Maptuit, Jeff Papows.
“In today’s economy, accurate truck navigation will save money on fuel, reduce out-of-route miles, and will increase driver safety, by taking the guesswork out of driving in new and unknown areas,” said Papows.
“That’s what we do best,” he added. “Our customers choose Maptuit because they know we provide their drivers with the industry’s most accurate and up-to-date road network and easy to follow step-by-step directions to their customer destination.”
The OmniVision platform offers new features and benefits, including navigation, according to Shaw Tracking. Advanced text-to-speech capability has been designed to improve driver safety and productivity, by allowing drivers to listen to turn-by-turn directions, added the communications company. The platform also features an integrated, colour touch screen which offers detailed maps of specific locations.
“We are pleased with the feedback that we have heard from our customers about this new application on the OmniVision platform,” said Mike Ham, vice-president of business service for Shaw Tracking. “We understand that there is an industry demand for truck approved, spoken turn-by-turn specific directions, and we are the first to provide that to Canadian carriers. By working with industry-leading service providers to offer their solutions on the OmniVision platform, we ensure that our customers can draw from a wide pool of expertise and choose the best possible solution for their needs.”
