Whiplash, lies and fraud; the UK’s growth industry.
Business vehicles including Trucks, Buses and Coaches are now increasingly targeted by fraudsters costing insurers and businesses over half a billion pounds a year. A spokesman for the insurance industry said, “Crash for cash is becoming a booming business, all the fraudsters need is a car and a little know how and they’re ready to go. We certainly recommend that motorists take steps to mitigate any fraud by using a DVR Device”.

Now drivers can enjoy the benefits of award winning navigation and have peace of mind through recording any driving incidents or misdemeanours across Europe, all in one impressive device.

Continuous video loop recording.
Truckmate SC5800 DVR continuously records the view in front of your vehicle and any sounds from inside the vehicle with its built-in microphone, automatically overwriting any unsaved old data. The video files can then be downloaded to your PC via our Snooper Player, providing video evidence of your journey and any incidents that have occurred.

GPS video technology.
Incorporating the most advanced GPS technology, Truckmate SC5800DVR can pinpoint your position anywhere across Europe and can be downloaded using our Snooper Player, recording where your incident has occurred including time, date and vehicle's speed, it's like having your very own 'black box‘.

Environmental settings or Low Emission Zones (LEZ)
Low Emission Zones (LEZs) are areas or roads where the most polluting vehicles are restricted from entering. This means that vehicles are banned, or in some cases charged, if they enter the LEZ when their emissions are over a set level. Truckmate SC5800DVR will route around these areas if your vehicle is in-breach of the polluting levels, reducing the possibility of any charges or fines being issued.

Truck Navigation - The Problem.
You couldn’t have missed the almost weekly press reports of a truck or large vehicle getting sent along an inappropriate route by an inept sat nav system. Almost all these stories end in disaster with a HGV stranded in a field, wedged under a bridge and even destroying property. It is reported that there has been millions of pounds worth of damage caused as truck drivers' use sat navs designed for cars to navigate trucks and commercial vehicles.

Truckmate Pro satellite navigation - The solution.
Truckmate Pro was the first sat nav system to include dedicated routing designed specifically for trucks. Plus includes Snooper’s multi-award winning speed camera database and detector technology*

*Requires annual subscription charge

Environmentally friendly technology.
As well as routing you safely and effectively to your destination, Truckmate Pro will also guide you along the most economical route. Improved fuel consumption, improved cost effectiveness.

Truckmate Pro has the answer.
This unique software will create a route based on the attributes of your vehicle. Simply tell Snooper Truckmate the size and weight of your vehicle, plus the type of load if applicable and Snooper’s Truckmate software will calculate a safe, truck friendly route. Routes will be calculated based on roads with adequate width and height, excluding roads with low bridges or weight restrictions plus many other hazards.


Improved Routing - no other truck satellite navigation system routes in the same way.
It's not just about routing to avoid hazards. Truckmate's unique routing algorithm ensures that where possible trucks and larger vehicles are only taken on appropriate roads. No other truck sat nav system on the market creates routes in the same way, the perfect truck driver sat nav. 

Truckmate - more hazard information than any other sat nav designed for trucks.
Truckmate uses Here™ Maps for Life transport data to provide the core truck data. However Truckmate also incorporates additional information ensuring more comprehensive cover than other sat navs using the standard Here® package. Truckmate offers greater cover on smaller, narrower roads where it is most needed. Truckmate has more hazard information on more roads across Europe than any other portable truck sat nav system.

Multiple vehicle dimensions.
Regularly drive different trucks and trailers? Truckmate units allow owners to save up to 10 different vehicle profiles, making it easy to switch and change between trucks and trailers and receive routing specific to that vehicle. You can even save the load type you carry with that vehicle profile.

Snooper's Truckmate sat nav will save you £££'s in fuel and time!
Recent research has shown that a Snooper Truckmate sat nav will pay for itself quickly. Sat nav users on average drive 16% fewer miles, which means truck drivers use 16% less fuel. Travel times are reduced by 18% on average producing fantastic cost savings at a time when every penny counts, not to mention the costs saved avoiding damage to your truck and property on route!

Car navigation.
Although Truckmate has clearly been designed to navigate trucks and larger vehicles on safe and legal roads it also incorporates a car setting. Simply switch Truckmate to car mode and it will navigate you on the most effective routes for your car instead! Possibly the best sat nav on the market today.

Industry Testimonials & Reviews

Steve Love of the Home Delivery Network says:
“It was great to be able to work with Performance Products on creating something that is certain to have a huge impact on the haulage industry.  It’s no longer acceptable for drivers to be content with sat navs made for smaller vehicles — there are specific issues involved with driving HGVs, and TRUCKMATE takes all of them into account.”

Truckmate gets you effortlessly from A to B whilst ensuring that you get there with your driving license intact.

Truckmate Pro SC5800 DVR

THE AURA ADVANTAGE! THE IMPORTANCE OF VERIFICATION - All speed camera databases are not created equal.

Unlike AURA™, many other GPS speed camera databases rely largely on locations provided by hobbyists who might not be able to tell a speed camera, speed trap or a red light camera from a traffic flow camera or a surveillance camera. These speed camera databases could result in annoying false alerts, which could lead you to start ignoring even legitimate alerts--defeating the point of having a GPS speed camera detector unit in the first place.

Other speed camera databases are not updated every day, and they also limit how often you can download updates. As a result, devices using these speed camera databases are not as up-to-date as they could be and are likely to miss alerts.

In contrast, Snooper has assembled a professional team that devotes every working day to verifying each and every speed camera, speed trap and high risk zone that goes into the AURA™ speed camera database.

The AURA™ speed camera database is constantly updated, and can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. AURA’s reliability is backed up by Snooper, one of the most respected and trusted satellite navigation systems and speed camera location manufacturers. Snooper has won dozens of awards for innovation and product performance and has been established since 1979.

If you’re considering a GPS speed camera database to reduce your risk of an unintended speeding ticket or accident, doesn’t it make sense to go with the database—and the company—that reduces that risk the most?

How does it work?

  • Gatso & Truvelo Cameras

  • Accident Hotspots

Industry Testimonials

John Beddow is an HGV driver for Uniloads, the country’s leading specialist in the delivery of commercial vehicles throughout the UK and Europe.

“I drive a number of different sizes and types of trucks, and Truckmate has proved invaluable. Although I’ve used sat navs for years and they’ve all saved me time, I often used to find myself going 15 miles out of the way before realising I couldn’t go any further. Nothing removes the unique hassles of truck driving like Truckmate.” 

Andy Saunders drives for the UK’s leading manufacturer of natural stone and concrete hard-landscaping products.

“There’s nothing like Truckmate on the market, and there’s no comparison with other brands. Every other sat nav was designed for cars, but Truckmate was clearly made with commercial vehicles in mind. Because of the specific restrictions we face every day in our jobs, it’s immensely useful for driving in the city and in the country. I recently lent my device to one of my colleagues, and he didn’t want to let it go!”
