Snooper Truckmate Pro S6800 is an advanced satellite navigation system that is dedicated to improving the driving experience of truckers. The S6800 brings together our award winning street level navigation plus tyre pressure monitoring and built-in speed camera detection for the first time on a Truckmate sat nav. By entering the truck’s specifications, you can create safe and cost-effective routes by avoiding height, width and weight restrictions.
Snooper Truckmate Pro S6800 is the latest addition to the Truckmate family, dedicated to creating routes specifically for HGV's, trucks and larger vehicles. Truckmate Pro S6800 incorporates a large 7″ widescreen LCD, giving truck drivers a clearer view of Truckmate's unique satellite navigation software and is compatible with Snooper's very own tyre pressure monitoring system, Tyre Pilot. Tyre Pilot delivers alerts to any tyre pressure or temperature changes whilst driving, ensuring safety and fuel efficiency throughout any journey.
Truckmate Pro is simple and easy to use but highly effective. Enter the height, weight and width of your vehicle and Truckmate Pro will automatically calculate a truck friendly route, avoiding low bridges, height and weight restrictions plus many other common hazards and restrictions you are likely to face. But that's not all, not only will Truckmate Pro S6800 route you around most restrictions and hazards across Europe but it will guide you along the most economical route, saving you time and money through improved fuel consumption.
Truckmate Pro S6800 features also includes Snooper's award winning speed camera location technology, which provides personal alerts to warn of speed traps and hazards, while the built-in My Speed® technology displays the speed limit and advisory speed limit for trucks and heavy vehicles on virtually every road across Europe.
Truckmate Pro. The No1 choice of sat nav for truck drivers.
More truck drivers choose Truckmate Pro than any other sat nav system because it is the most comprehensive portable truck sat nav system on the market. All Snooper Truckmate Pro systems use Here® Maps for Life (Formerly Navteq) transport data at their core, but Truckmate is further enhanced with 1000s more attributes combining to give far more comprehensive cover of hazards and restrictions on more roads than any other system on the market.
Snooper Truckmate Pro S6800 - What's new?
Tyre Pilot compatible.
For safer and lower cost motoring, Truckmate Pro S6800 is compatible with our latest driving aid, Tyre Pilot, a tyre pressure monitoring system. Display the pressure and temperature of your vehicle’s tyres on screen with the added benefit of audible alerts to pressure drops and abnormal temperature increases.
Tyre defects contribute to over 3% of all vehicle accidents and are the main fault attributed to a vehicle incident. Monitoring your vehicle’s tyres whilst driving and ensuring they are correctly inflated could save you up to 10% in fuel charges, extending tyre life by 35% and reduces the chances of an accident or blow-out.

Truck navigation - the problem
You couldn’t have missed the 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 the large commercial vehicles.
Truckmate Pro satellite navigation - the solution.
Truckmate Pro was the first Sat Nav system to be a dedicated HGV Sat Nav. Plus includes Snooper’s multi-award winning speed camera detector technology and speed camera database.
Environmentally friendly technology.
As well as routing you safely and effectively to your destination, Truckmate Pro will also guide you along the most economical route. With the cost of fuel rising, the Improved fuel consumption could mean your new satellite navigation system will pay for itself quickly.
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 the 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 across the UK and Europe.
Improved routing - no other 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 truck friendly roads. No other sat nav system on the market creates routes in the same way.
Truckmate - more hazard information than any other truck sat nav.
Truckmate uses Here® Maps for Life transport data to provide the core truck data. However, Snooper Truckmate also incorporates additional information ensuring more comprehensive cover than other sat navs using the standard Here® Maps for Life package. Truckmate offers greater cover on smaller, narrower roads where it is most needed. Truckmate has more hazard information on more roads across Europe than any other portable truck sat nav system, a system that is designed specifically with the truck driver in mind.
Truckmate Sat Nav will save you £££'s in fuel and time!
Recent research has shown that a Truckmate HGV Sat Nav will pay for itself quickly. Sat nav users on average drive 16% fewer miles, which means truck drivers use 16% less fuel. Travel times are reduced by 18% on average producing fantastic cost savings at a time when every penny counts, not to mention the costs saved avoiding damage to your truck and property on route!
Multiple vehicle dimensions.
Regularly drive different trucks and trailers? Truckmate units allow owners to save up to 10 different vehicle profiles, making it easy to switch and change between trucks and trailers and receive routing specific to that vehicle. You can even save the load type you carry with that vehicle profile.

Award winning Speed Camera location technology - From only £29.99 inc vat per year!
Snooper Truckmate is completely unique. Unlike any other satellite navigation 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 camera is added you can download it, because for the professional truck driver 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 databases rely largely on locations provided by hobbyists who might not be able to tell a speed camera 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 ignore legitimate alerts - defeating the point of having a speed camera alert system 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 databases are not as up-to-date as they could be and are likely to miss alerts. Snooper's AURA™ speed camera database is constantly updated, and can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Snooper speed trap location technology has won dozens of awards for innovation and product performance and has been established since 1979.
If you’re considering a GPS 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 AURA™ will provide personal alerts of the following speed traps and hazards:-
As well as the UK and Ireland, the AURA™ speed trap database now offers Worldwide protection. Included in our system are locations in Germany, Holland, Belgium, 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 provides access to our truck specific speed camera database.
