Xata Corp. has added ALK Technologies' CoPilot Truck to its Xatanet and MobileMax offerings to give drivers enhanced navigation solutions. CoPilot Truck provides turn-by-turn directions, voice prompts and graphical maps.

“In keeping with our promise to continually add functionality to our product line, we made it a priority to integrate this enhanced navigation capability with Xata's products,” said Tom Flies, senior vp-product management, Xata Corp.

This new solution provides users with an interactive, onboard navigation with text-to-speech directions, graphical indicators and a large moving-map format. The enhanced navigation is offered on a single screen and provides industry compliance and performance-trend reporting.

“Pairing ALK's CoPilot Truck technology with Xatanet's integration of routing and dispatch applications eliminates manual interaction needed by the driver or dispatch personnel, which also helps eliminate delivery delays and errors,” said Dan Popkin, vp-CoPilot sales, ALK Technologies. “Together, the two technologies give drivers truck-specific turn-by-turn directions that result in less distraction, allowing them to focus on their core task — driving safely to their destination.”
