In-App GPS Truck Navigation App

In-App GPS Truck Navigation App

What does in-app commercial truck navigation mean?

It means drivers who operate commercial vehicles don't have to juggle and switch between apps inside a tiny smartphone while operating a vehicle.

Never make a mistake with Route4Me as driving route planner for commercial truck operations

Route4Me's GPS-enabled in-app navigation technology improves productivity without negatively affecting safety, by incorporating the voice-guided route navigation process directly into the driver application.

After a route starts, there's no need to look at the screen because the application talks to the driver, and auto-corrects if wrong turns happen accidentally.

Consumer Grade Navigation vs Commercial Truck Navigation

While there are many GPS navigation apps and systems out there, with Google Maps being the best and biggest, almost none of them are designed for businesses, whose drivers operate commercial vehicles.

Contrary to common knowledge, commercial vehicles don't necessarily need to be large or heavy vehicles.

Take, for example, a minivan with commercial plates in New York City. It is not lawfully permitted to travel on various parkways in the NYC-metro area like the FDR, the Belt Parkway, or New Jersey’s Garden State Parkway.

Because of all of these restrictions, driving directions, drive times, and route optimization scenarios are wildly inaccurate when using “consumer-grade” truck navigation systems for both optimization planning and driving purposes.

Easily Support Truck Vehicle Size, Weight, and Classes

Certain vehicles, such as those with many axles, hazardous materials restrictions, weight, width, height, bridge, and tunnel avoidance, and other Class 1- 8 vehicle restrictions simply cannot travel safely on certain roads. These trucks require a special truck gps navigation system.

Ours is available on our iPhone, iPad, Android smartphone, and Android tablet app, and it works in the US, Europe, and many other countries.

The unfortunate reality is that traveling on roads that are incompatible with certain vehicle types could result in catastrophic or deadly consequences.

And while no system or company can or should promise a 100% risk-free route, using advanced mapping data is an excellent way to significantly reduce the risk of road compatibility accidents, especially when drivers navigate unfamiliar roads.

Differences Between Commercial Vehicle Route Planning and Navigation

We use the same advanced commercial road network mapping data to plan driving routes and dispatch routes as we use in our in-app truck navigation app.

The reason for this is so that there is continuity throughout the route optimization and planning process all the way to the navigation part of the process.

Here's an example of why this is important and why it has to be done correctly. Plan a route in a major city using roads designated for bicycles and then send an 80,000 pound HAZMAT vehicle along the same route.

The results will likely be disastrous. The vehicle may hit overpasses, be unable to make sufficiently wide turns, and will likely even get pulled over by law enforcement for bringing HAZMAT into a non-compliant area.

Another common, but dangerous example, is planning a route using trucking GPS data and roads, but then asking your drivers to use Google Maps or Waze.

By totally integrating the truck route planning, optimization, dispatch, and navigation process and using the same advanced underlying mapping data,

Route4Me does its best to ensure that there is a seamless continuity during your entire planning to navigation process.
