Truck Navigation - The Problem
You couldn’t have missed the almost weekly press reports of a truck or large vehicle getting sent along an inappropriate route by an inept sat nav system. Almost all these stories end in disaster with a HGV stranded in a field, wedged under a bridge and even destroying property. It is reported that there has been millions of pounds worth of damage caused as truck drivers use sat navs designed for cars to navigate trucks and commercial vehicles.
Truckmate Pro has the Answer
This unique software will create a route based on the attributes of your vehicle. Simply tell Snooper Truckmate the size and weight of your vehicle, plus the type of load if applicable and Snooper’s Truckmate software will calculate a safe, truck friendly route. Routes will be calculated based on roads with adequate width and height, excluding roads with low bridges or weight restrictions plus many other hazards.
Improved routing - no other truck satellite navigation system routes in the same way.
It's not just about routing to avoid hazards. Truckmate's unique routing algorithm ensures that where possible trucks and larger vehicles are only taken on appropriate roads. No other truck sat nav system on the market creates routes in the same way, the perfect truck driver sat nav.
Truckmate - more hazard information than any other truck sat nav

However Truckmate also incorporates additional information ensuring more comprehensive cover than other sat navs using the standard Here® Maps for Life package.

Award winning Speed Camera location technology - From only £29.99 inc vat per year!
Snooper Truckmate is completely unique with our award winning speed camera database. Unlike any other HGV sat nav system, Truckmate provides you with speed limit alerts specific to the class of vehicle you are driving. Plus you can update the speed camera database 24hrs a day 365 days a year. Truckmate uses our unique AURA™ database which is updated daily, so the second a new speed camera is added you can download it, because anything less than 100% cover is just not an option. Truckmate gets you effortlessly from A to B whilst ensuring that you get there with your driving license intact.
THE AURA ADVANTAGE! THE IMPORTANCE OF VERIFICATION - All speed camera databases are not created equal
Unlike AURA™, many other GPS speed camera databases rely largely on locations provided by hobbyists who might not be able to tell a speed camera, speed trap or a red light camera from a traffic flow camera or a surveillance camera. These speed camera databases could result in annoying false alerts, which could lead you to start ignoring even legitimate alerts--defeating the point of having a GPS speed camera detector unit in the first place.
Other speed camera databases are not updated every day, and they also limit how often you can download updates. As a result, devices using these speed camera databases are not as up-to-date as they could be and are likely to miss alerts.
In contrast, Snooper has assembled a professional team that devotes every working day to verifying each and every speed camera, speed trap and high risk zone that goes into the AURA™ speed camera database.
The AURA™ speed camera database is constantly updated, and can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. AURA’s reliability is backed up by Snooper, one of the most respected and trusted satellite navigation systems and speed camera location manufacturers. Snooper has won dozens of awards for innovation and product performance and has been established since 1979.
If you’re considering a GPS speed camera database to reduce your risk of an unintended speeding ticket or accident, doesn’t it make sense to go with the database—and the company—that reduces that risk the most?
How does it work?
Snooper Truckmate will provide personal alerts of the following speed cameras, speed traps and hazards:-
As well as the UK and Ireland, the AURA™ speed camera database now offers Worldwide protection. Included in our speed camera database are locations in Germany, Holland, Belgium, France, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Luxembourg, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Romania, Russia, North America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa and is still growing.Snooper Services
