INDIANAPOLIS. The Pro 7150 from TomTom Business Solutions offers improved guidance and faster route calculation to help commercial drivers reach their destinations faster.

The device, being displayed at this week’s National Truck Equipment Assn.’s Work Truck Show here, features TomTom IQ Routes, which recommends routes based on actual traffic speeds rather than posted speed limits to route drivers the quickest way for that time of day.

“In business, time is money, so with a fleet of vehicles on the road eight or more hours a day, every minute saved on a journey delivers real savings,” said Michael Geffroy, vice president of sales, North America for TomTom Business Solutions. “The TomTom PRO 7150 enables fleet operators to navigate with greater ease to their destinations via the fastest routes, which ultimately allows them to spend more time with their customers and less time on the road.”

The device is part of the TomTom Worksmart solution, giving it connectivity for fleet management and access to Live Services. Live Services provides traffic information, speed cameras, local search and weather updates.

The Pro 7150 includes lifetime traffic updates; premium maps of the U.S., Canada and Mexico with lifetime updates; and Eco Routes, which guides drivers on the most fuel-efficient routes.

The unit comes with a 5 in. capacitive touchscreen, intuitive software, easy map viewing with navigation screens, and a click and lock mount to secure the device.

Other features include instant and continuous routing; expanded driving view; crisp graphics and intuitive user menus; pinch-to-zoom and swipe from screen-to-screen using gestures; Bluetooth hands-free calling; and voice recognition.

The Worksmart solution includes vehicle tracking, job dispatch, time management, eco driving and management reporting.
