-- The newly released free update for SmartTruckRoute, cloud based truck navigation service, now offers truck specific points of interest such as Truck Stops, Weigh scales, Rest Areas, Truck Parking, and Repair services. The SmartTruckRoute app offers location based search, display, and direct routing to truck stops. Detailed information regarding services available for each truck stop are readily available to the driver. Drivers can easily see which truck stops offer the services they need such as wi-fi, showers, and truck wash.
The TeleType in house servers based in Boston, Massachusetts allows SmartTruckRoute users to calculate truck specific routes instantly and use the built-in GPS of the iPhone or iPad for navigation. 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. The software takes into account commercial truck restrictions as well as the vehicle height and weight. SmartTruckRoute helps drivers avoid costly tickets and provides additional safety. Turn by turn visual and voice instructions allow the driver to use the phone hands free when navigating.
According to Ed Friedman, President, TeleType, "SmartTruckRoute is the most advanced and accurate Smart phone solution for truck GPS navigation."
