Truck Parking Europe app now available for TomTom driver terminals
Karlsruhe, 28 March 2016 – Truck Parking Europe today announced that it has teamed up with TomTom to make its popular app available for TomTom PRO 8 and TomTom BRIDGE driver terminals.
One challenge for truck drivers has always been balancing the need to comply with resting period legislation, against knowing when and where they can take their breaks in the safest and most comfortable way. By bringing together the Truck Parking Europe (TPE) app showing where all truck parking spots are alongside and TomTom’s Remaining Driving Time (RDT) app reminding drivers on when the next stop is due and, drivers have everything they need for safe driving and parking all in one unit.
Truck Parking Europe is already available for smartphones and has been downloaded more than 150,000 times. However, this is the first time it will be made available for dedicated truck navigation devices. The app has the largest and most up-to-date database of more than 23,000 parking areas across Europe. Each area is evaluated by other app users, which gives drivers access to ratings from the biggest community of truck drivers in Europe.
Niels de Zwaan, director Truck Parking Europe, added: “By combining the TPE app with the TomTom RDT app, professional drivers know exactly when and where to go for the best and safest resting places from our Europe-wide database. This assures stress-free driving and increases road safety.”
“Helping our customers drive more safely is a core part of what TomTom Telematics is all about,” said George de Boer, International Alliance Manager at TomTom. “By offering Truck Parking Europe as an integrated part of TomTom driver terminals, we are making it safer for drivers to interact with the app.”
The app is available as of today and can be downloaded to TomTom PRO8 devices through the TomTom Telematics MDM platform and will be made available for download in the TomTom AppCourasel for TomTom Bridge devices.
