TomTom today unveiled a new navigation device for the North American market designed for businesses to deliver clear bottom-line benefits. The PRO 7150 from TomTom Business Solutions, the business unit of TomTom dedicated to commercial vehicle fleets, offers improved route guidance and faster route calculation to help drivers save time spent on the road.
“In business, time is money, so with a fleet of vehicles on the road eight or more hours a day, every minute saved on a journey delivers real savings,” said Michael Geffroy, vice president of sales, North America for TomTom Business Solutions. “The TomTom PRO 7150 enables fleet operators to navigate with greater ease to their destinations via the fastest routes, which ultimately allows them to spend more time with their customers and less time on the road.”

The device also features premium maps of the US, Canada and Mexico with lifetime updates**. Additionally, with Eco Routes, fleet drivers are guided via more fuel-efficient routes – saving the fleet money, as well as reducing the impact on the environment. Furthermore, the new device is equipped with:
