Boston, MA, January 28, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Recognizing the special concerns of commercial drivers, TeleType pioneered the use of portable GPS for truck specific navigation. TeleType continues to focus on producing the best possible truck routing and navigation solutions. SmartTruckRoute for Android and iPhone smartphones and tablets has been updated to allow for faster routing and re-routing and now offers alternate routes, mile markers, multiple point routing, speed alerts, and weight per axle to further improve truck specific routing.
The SmartTruckRoute software takes into account commercial truck restrictions such as low bridges, weight restrictions, hazmat restrictions, axle limits, and more. SmartTruckRoute helps drivers avoid costly tickets and provides additional safety. The app also includes truck specific points of interest such as truck stops, weigh scales, rest areas, and displays diesel fuel pricing. At less than 7 cents per day for a subscription, the solution is economical and offers simple installation with automatic activation. The app offers the unique feature of integrating driver feedback to enhance the routing experience. The company maintains both permanent and temporary truck restriction data on their servers and updates the information daily on a pro-active basis as well as incorporating driver feedback.
According to Marleen Winer, Vice-President of TeleType, “As an engineering team based in the U.S. we are especially pleased to work directly with commercial drivers to continually develop and improve SmartTruckRoute to aid drivers in safely and efficiently reaching their delivery destinations.”
