Truck navigation with VDO FleetVisor and Driver Linc
Getting about safely and efficiently
Your advantages at a glance
- Plan routes that are specifically tailored to the requirements of trucks
- Avoid narrow roads and one-way streets, sharp bends, U-turns, low bridges, underpasses and narrow tunnels
- Determine the individual truck type, load and dangerous goods, as well as height, weight, length, limits and maximum speed
- Calculate a realistic arrival time based on the conditions
Navigation systems have become an essential companion for any kind of trip. Most of them have just one major flaw: They do not meet the specific needs of commercial vehicles. Large trucks often end up in narrow roads or get led towards tight U-turns, low clearance routes and bridges that are off limits to large goods vehicles. This means extra stress for drivers, unforeseen delays, angry clients and, in the worst case, even damage to the vehicle. With the Driver Display's navigation function, this will no longer happen to you. Enter your individual requirements when planning each journey and a route will be created that will safely lead driver and vehicle to their destination. And this means that the estimated arrival time is finally based on real truck-specific conditions.
VDO FleetVisor is the premium solution for efficient fleet management. TruckLinc records vehicle data that cannot be recorded by the digital tachograph. The recorded data is continuously transferred to VDO FleetVisor, a fleet management software with extensive analysis functionalities. In addition, you can support your drivers with an optional driver display that provides services such as road navigation and the ability to communicate directly with the driver.
VDO FleetVisor functions
The fleet management software offers several useful analysis functions, many in real time.
Track routes in real time and produce detailed reports on the individual routes.
Create a precise picture of driving and rest periods, times when the speed limit is exceeded, capacity utilisation and other driver data.
Analyse the routes travelled, fuel consumption and other vehicle data.
Download data from the driver card and mass storage device from the office while the vehicles are on the road. This saves valuable time because your drivers do not need to come into the office for downloading. An overview shows you when the next download is due.
The overview shows all dates for forthcoming maintenance work. Dates that are due and overdue are specially emphasised with yellow and red highlighting.
Driver Linc functions
The driver display with integrated navigation system automatically calculates and shows the optimal route. Your drivers will avoid unnecessary detours and can bypass toll roads if needed. As an option, we offer a special navigation solution for trucks in order to avoid bridges and tunnels that trucks are not permitted to use. Because the route caculaction is done only on the navigation system, the routes can be recaluculated and shown even without GSM connection.
Driving and rest periods
Drivers can easily read their driving and rest periods on the large 7-inch colour display with a convenient touch screen interface.
The driver display shows idling, critical braking manoeuvres and other information on driving style and therefore motivates drivers to improve their driving habits.
Easily exchange brief messages with your drivers for free.
The new Tyre Control Service for DriverLinc, locates the operating conditions of the tire via sensor which is embedded in the tire. In this way the driver has an overview of the condition of the tires all the time.
Holder and casing
The portable device fits easily in the holder and can be removed to prevent theft.
The casing can resist water, vibrations and direct sunshine.
