Functions of the truck navigation app PTV Navigator

Truck-specifc navigation routes

PTV Navigator considers your vehicles’ attributes and only guides your drivers on routes suitable for freight traffic. This saves your driver unexpected detours, U-turns, time and stress!

Offline maps

Once your truck drivers have downloaded the map updates, offline navigation is available. They only need an internet connection to access real-time traffic information.

Live traffic assistant

Benefit from the latest real-time traffic information including traffic predictions and weather impacts with TomTom HD Traffic. PTV Navigator automatically suggests improved routes in case of disruptions and ensures your drivers are always on the best route.

Truck parking assistant

Time for a break? Just activate the convenient Truck Parking Assistant to find parking spots along your route. PTV Navigator has access to more than 34,000 truck rest areas in Europe, including comprehensive information about them.

Avoid toll roads

Avoiding toll roads altogether usually doesn't make sense as it often considerably prolongs travel times. PTV Navigator enables you to avoid toll roads in a way that lets you reach your destination in a reasonable amount of time, while also reducing your toll costs. Simply set your preferences and travel on toll free roads whenever possible and beneficial.

Simple deployment

We offer easy deployment and licensing for fleets and enable an efficient management of updates and licenses.

Easy to use

PTV Navigator is clearly arranged and intuitive to use: PTV Navigator gives your drivers a clear, easy-to-understand interface, available in 20 languages.  For you, this translates into a low need for support: After the rollout, the maintenance effort is minimal.

Seamless integration

The integration possibilities go far beyond the support of Intents. Our comprehensive API allows you to fully automate Navigator from your application, send destinations or even complete guided routes, retrieve all real-time information and much more.
