TomTom introduces new Trucker 6000 for HGV navigation

TomTom Trucker 6000

TomTom has introduced the all-new TomTom Trucker 6000, a portable navigation device specifically designed for people who drive large vehicles for a living.

The device will also help drivers know they are on the right road because it includes customised routes for the user’s specific vehicle type, size, weight, cargo and speed.

Through TomTom Traffic and advanced routing technology, drivers will get an ETA based on vehicle profile and real-time traffic information.

The TomTom Trucker will also help make users aware of speed cameras and traffic jams on their route, and the device is designed to be taken out of the professional driving environment and into a family car.

Corinne Vigreux, co-founder and managing director of TomTom Consumer, said: “One of the most important things is for truckers to be able to complete deliveries on time. That’s why we designed the TomTom Trucker with truck-specific routing, and world-class TomTom Traffic information, to enable them to be as efficient as possible with the limited time they are allowed to drive. It’s all part of our mission to get people to where they want to be, faster.”

TomTom Trucker 6000 is available from the second week of June, across Europe, on the TomTom webstore, as well as highstreet retailers with an RRP of £319.99.

    I did order my one today from the tom-tom website, I owned a 5250 for 2 weeks, but had problems with the update and the seller was unable to help me. (and tom-tom played the B2B card, no support for private customer without Webfleet) I loved the device so i give the trucker 6000 a chance. And support should not be a problem this time as it is a consumer device!

    I have just bought a Tomtom 6000 truck the only good things I have found up to now is the 6in screen and the traffic reports. First thing I'm going to say is Tomtom go back to the drawing board and give me my 5150 loads. Faster routes for trucks better can have my own personal poi folders that I can add to as I find more can block or unblock roads if not right or just for personal use could make my truck as high ,wide and long as I want and weight as well put this back into this 6000 with a little fine tuning you have a winner. Because this 6000 take you short cuts that are not designed for a truck and if you do wide or heavy loads then your screwed don't get me wrong I can put my poi,s from my 5150 but I have no way of adding new one so sorry going to try and get my old 5150 fixed then sell thes to a car driver because I think it's crap for truckers
