New TomTom PRO 7150 GPS Navigator Targets Commercial Vehicles

Beside rolling out a very large number of GPS devices targeting personal vehicles, TomTom also has quite an impressive lineup of navigation solutions targeting commercial vehicle fleets, the latest such item to be introduced being the TomTom PRO 7150 model.

Unlike GPS navigators targeting regular drivers, the ones designed to guide professional drivers (truckers, haulers, etc.) from one location to the next offer certain specific features, meant to increase the level of driving efficiency, as well as shorten the traveling times.

And, in fact, that's also the case with the new navigator from TomTom, the PRO 7150 model coming equipped with 5-inch capacitive touchscreen and a bright display, that enable fast and easy map viewing and menu navigation.

Additionally, the new navigator model also includes a new click and lock mount, that makes it a a lot easier for users to attach it to their vehicles' wind screens and provides a better level of support, especially when users pinch-to-zoom and swipe from one screen to the next using gestures.

Plus, voice recognition for verbal commands and Bluetooth hands free calling are also available.

Given the fact that it's a part of the company's WORKsmart solution, the new navigator also grants professional drives access to a series of live services, including LIVE Traffic info, as well as the location of Speed Cameras, plus Local Search and TomTom Weather functions.

Since it's been designed specifically to be used by fleets of commercial vehicles, the device also delivers fast and easy access to such features as vehicle tracking, job dispatch, time management or eco driving, but they do require a TomTom WEBFLEET subscription.

Pricing for the new TomTom PRO 7150 GPS navigator isn't exactly low, given the fact that it will arrive in stores in North America in Q2, 2011, for a RRP of $399.95.
