The Professional GPS App For Truck Drivers
The MapTrip Truck navigation contains map data from TomTom or Here and thus knows all truck restrictions, prohibitions and tunnels with dangerous goods restrictions. In addition, we use LIVE traffic data, so you can be sure that you are always on the optimal route. This also benefits the calculation of driving times, so that you can give your customers precise arrival times. The routing is designed for trucks of different sizes. Whether you are travelling in a 7.5-tonne or a 40-tonne truck, MapTrip will always guide you on the optimal route.
– Optimized routes for trucks of all sizes – Truck-compatible route guidance – Precise calculation of arrival time – Optimal traffic management
Optimal Routes For Your Truck
A good truck GPS navigation must do more than just observe weight restrictions on bridges or bypass low tunnels. These are of course important features and that is why we use the best map data available on the market for MapTrip. For heavy trucks, MapTrip selects routes that are mostly on large, well developed roads. U-turns are of course avoided. Smaller vehicles which are also used for inner-city deliveries can also choose smaller roads to avoid detours. In addition to the dimensions, different vehicle profiles can therefore be selected so that you are always optimally guided. All settings can also be made via the interface, so that e.g. the dispatcher can guide you optimally via telematics system.
Optimal routes considering:
• Height, width, length and weight • Dangerous goods
• Environmental zones
Truck GPS with Live Traffic
MapTrip uses traffic data from TomTom and Here to calculate the best route to your destination. During the journey, the GPS app continuously checks whether there is a better route and informs you. We then display the old and the new route, as well as the time advantage and the difference in route length. So you can decide for yourself which route you want to take. If you prefer, MapTrip can also automatically choose the fastest route. Since we analyze traffic reports not only for highways but for all roads, MapTrip can also calculate a very precise trip duration or arrival time. The Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) can also be queried via interface. This gives dispatchers a precise basis for planning.

Integrating Truck Navigation Into a Telematics System
MapTrip has extensive interfaces with which, for example, destinations can be transferred or information such as arrival time can be queried. The vehicle dimensions such as width, height or weight can also be defined via the interface. On Android Intents can be used very easily and on all other platforms the MapTrip API offers extensive integration possibilities. If you want an even deeper integration, you can use the MapTrip SDK, which of course also supports truck route planning.
Via the Intent interface of Android, MapTrip can be started very easily from your own application and a target can be passed. On our GitHub account we have provided an example. Click here to see how it works.
With the MapTrip API all navigation functions can be controlled from your own app. Current information such as the current arrival time or the remaining route can be called up. Especially extensive functions are available e.g. for the control of tours where many addresses have to be approached one after the other.
Warning of Hard End of Congestion
Suddenly appearing hard ends of traffic jams are a great danger on the highway. Rear-end collisions that happen again and again in such situations often have terrible consequences. MapTrip can help to avoid such situations.
On the highway, MapTrip continuously analyzes the route ahead. Based on the live traffic information, hard tailbacks can be identified. The navigation then issues a warning to increase the driver’s attention.
Parking Spaces Along the Route
We have integrated a directory of all rest areas and parking spaces into MapTrip. As a driver you will be shown the closest parking lot or all those along the route. With one click MapTrip takes the parking lot as your destination.
