Peterbilt Motors Co. has announced enhancements to the Peterbilt SmartNav system. As part of the enhancements Peterbilt will now offer the PeopleNet app fully integrated into the SmartNav display, eliminating the need for PeopleNet users to wire and install a secondary device. The integration includes an ethernet connection for enhanced data security, the ability to use the app for electronic logging device functionality and integration of fleet management systems for Peterbilt customers.
“Peterbilt commits a significant amount of time and resources to researching the driver environment,” said Kim Lawton, medium-duty and technology marketing manager, Peterbilt Motors Co. “Removing the need for a secondary device to handle fleet management and logging device functionality improves cab ergonomics and is a testament to Peterbilt’s dedication to the driver.”
Also available in the updated display is the Peterbilt TruckCare Roadside Assistance app. The integrated android based application is standard on the SmartNav display and connects to the drivers phone via Bluetooth. The application can directly dial the Peterbilt TruckCare call center for 24/7 roadside assistance.
These enhancements to SmartNav will be available for order in November 2018.
