Snooper celebrate seven years of their award-winning Snooper Truckmate sat nav range this year. First launched in 2007 and working in conjunction with trucking industry experts and the feedback of tens of thousands of truck drivers Snooper have produced the most comprehensive truck sat nav system available for use on UK and European roads and the data that drives the Truckmate database just keeps advancing!
All Snooper Truckmate sat navs utilise Here transport data at their core, but Truckmate is further enhanced with 1000's more attributes and POI's providing protection from hazards.

Truck Specific Routing
Snooper Truckmate can be programmed with the following truck profiles:
‣Height - Feet and Inches or Metres
‣Weight - Ton
‣Length - Feet and Inches or Metres
‣Width - Feet and Inches or Metres
‣Weight per axle - Ton
Other fields include truck type (truck, trailer, delivery, public) and load type (none, hazardous, explosive and flammable, harmful for water). Once this information is input, the Snooper Truckmate will calculate a route based on your vehicle type, size and load. It will make sure your journey avoids low bridges and narrow roads etc.
As well as routing you safely and effectively to your destination, Snooper Truckmate will also guide you along the most economical route. For example, faced with a choice of a route using a steep incline or one with more straightforward flat roads, Snooper Truckmate will select the latter resulting in improved fuel consumption and cost effectiveness.
The map diagram to the right shows this in action.
