TomTom launches seven-inch HD satnav for professional drivers10 June 2021

TomTom, the mapmaker and location technology specialist, has launched TomTom GO Expert, which is said to offer smart routing for large vehicles and accurate traffic information to help make every drive more efficient.

The TomTom GO Expert lets drivers input the size, weight, cargo type and maximum speed of their truck, van or bus so that they are routed appropriately for their large vehicle. TomTom’s maps include the latest ADR Tunnel Codes, UN Class restrictions and City Ban routing, drivers will avoid roads not suitable for their vehicle.

Even when there’s no active route planned in the satnav, restriction warnings will keep the driver informed about what’s ahead; and they’ll receive timely alerts for restrictions that might impact their vehicle such as bridge heights, tunnels and toll locations. This makes it easier for drivers to adapt their route along the way, leading to a more efficient and less stressful journey.

Also, maps can be updated on their GO Expert via Wi-Fi. Beyond navigation, a new processor and increased memory space help improve speed and responsiveness.

Other stand-out features include tens of thousands of new dedicated large vehicle points of interest including fuelling stations, parking spots and service centres which have all been carefully selected to meet the needs of professional drivers.

New and improved moving lane guidance means drivers can navigate confidently at tricky intersections and highway exits. They can also connect their phone to the device via Bluetooth wireless connectivity for access to TomTom’s traffic information.

The seven-inch device costs £399.99; the six-inch unit is £349.99. A version of the larger unit with 4G sim is expected to launch later this year.
