The Kenworth NAV+ HD system, which is optional on the Kenworth T680 and T880, will offer an app from PeopleNet, which recently rebranded under the Trimble name, integrating its fleet management services and an electronic logging device (ELD) solution. The app, which uses the Kenworth TruckTech+ Remote Diagnostics platform, will be available as an option on new T680s and T880s.
The integration of the Trimble app with the Nav+ HD display decreases installation complexity, improves security with an Ethernet cable connection, and reduces truck commissioning time, according to the company. Updates can be pushed from Trimble via the T680 or T880 on-truck modem. A Trimble pre-wire option is still available from the factory.
Kenworth NAV+ HD features a 7-in. high-definition touch screen, and integration into the Kenworth SmartWheel steering wheel. The system offers hands-free Bluetooth phone capability, voice-command access to truck-specific navigation, vehicle data, audio controls, blind-spot camera input, digital music integration, integrated SiriusXM satellite radio, WiFi capability, roadside assistance, virtual gauges, camera inputs and the internet.
