Navevo ProNav GPS for lorry drivers launches

Hopefully marking the end of "lorry driver follows satnav under low bridge" news stories, Navevo has unveiled its satnav solution for drivers of heavy goods vehicles and vans.

Using NAVTEQ Transport, ProNav GPS software features dynamic routing and navigation optimisation based on a vehicle's dimensions, road warnings and legal restrictions to avoid such incidents.

Suitable for HGVs, vans, horse transporters, caravans or trailers, the software also incorporates info on London area unloading with pinpointed loading bays with exception times and a parking penalties database.

In addition to POI databases included on standard systems, ProNav features a points of interest database tailored to professional drivers including national HGV petrol stations and London cafes where drivers can purchase breakfast for under £5, as well as 40,000 other POIs supplied by NAVTEQ.

Complete with street level mapping for the UK and Republic of Ireland, seven digit postcode lookup and a 6 month free trial of safety camera alerts the features designed specifically for the professional driver can be switched off, turning ProNav into a standard GPS for every day use in the car.
