TomTom adds Truck Parking Europe app to driver terminals
Issue Date: 2016-05-13

TomTom has teamed up with Truck Parking Europe to make its popular app available for TomTom customers. Users of TomTom BRIDGE driver terminals as well as the TomTom PRO 8 series, which is TomTom's high-end driver terminal that is fully compatible with TomTom WEBFLEET, will be able to download the app directly onto the devices.

One challenge for truck drivers is balancing the need to comply with resting period legislation, against knowing when and where they can take their break in the safest, and most comfortable way.

By bringing together TomTom's Remaining Driving Time (RDT) app, which reminds drivers when the next stop is due, and the Truck Parking Europe (TPE) app which shows where suitable truck parking spots are located, we are providing drivers with the tools they need for safer 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 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.
