New options are available for Fleet Director, the GPS-based commercial vehicle tracking and fleet management system. One option allows the driver to input the destination information and activate the information download, whereas before the dispatcher implemented the information download to the driver after assigning a call. In addition, real-time, fully automated voice communicated traffic information is available to supplement the voice prompt, real-time, speed-calibrated driving instructions. Another feature is the ability to designate whether a vehicle is a Class 8 truck or not. When a Class 8 truck is assigned a destination, the Fleet Director software then automatically calculates a route taking into account NAVTEQ Transport™ truck attributes such as height, weight, and width restrictions, and preferred designated truck routes.
