Navevo targets truckers with sat nav

Navigation specialists Navevo has launched its ProNav PNN420, a satellite navigation device designed to increase efficiency, safety and reduce costs for HGV drivers and fleet operators.
The PNN420 was developed after research carried out by Navevo, PIE Mapping and Transport for London (TfL), which aimed to gain insight into the daily needs of commercial drivers within the London area.
It includes features such as the London Freight Pack, which is compatible with TfL’s Freight Journey Planner, and the world’s first HGV Cyclist Alert system, which generates an alert reminding them to take care while in one of TfL’s “HGV/Cyclist convergence areas”.
Ian Wainwright, head of freight and fleet at TfL said: “London’s economy could not operate without an efficient and well-managed freight industry.
“By providing freight drivers with information to safely navigate around London in their cab, drivers can reduce congestion, emissions and unnecessary fines, delivering benefits to operators, local businesses and more widely, to all Londoners.”
