Powered by ALK's CoPilot, the navigation device is designed to improve safety and reduce operating costs for both drivers and fleets.
The portable device with built-in GPS antenna and speaker features a color touch-screen that displays directions simply and clearly as they are spoken. Upcoming turns are displayed so they can be quickly understood at a glance, and the driver's attention can remain focused on the road. The navigation software and map data are pre-installed.
The update features 117,000 new truck restrictions, including changes to Canadian dangerous goods restrictions. ALK has added 47,000 miles of new and updated truck-restricted roadway, 32,600 North American hazardous materials restrictions, and 12,500 new weight allowances nationwide.
The company has also rolled out three new models-the 440, 540, and 740-with progressively larger screens. The 440 features a 4.3-inch display, while the 540 has a 5-inch screen and the 740 a 7-inch display. The three come with the same capabilities and software, which are pre-loaded.
