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 trucking hazards.
Improved routing - no other satellite navigation system routes in the same way.
It's not just about navigating to avoid hazards. Truckmate's unique routing algorithm ensures that where possible trucks, HGV and larger vehicles are only taken on appropriate roads. No other truck sat nav system on the market creates routes in the same way.
Truckmate - more hazard information than any other sat nav 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® Maps for Life package. Truckmate offers greater cover on smaller, narrower roads where it is most needed. Truckmate has more truck hazard information on more roads across Europe than any other portable truck sat nav system.
Premium TMC (Traffic Information Content) - FREE of charge!
If you drive for a living you will know the importance of needing to know exactly what lies ahead. Accurate and reliable information is a must to ensure that you arrive on time and safely. Traffic information is fed from 100's of thousands of vehicles and sensors across the country providing up to the second information. Snooper's Truckmate TMC service will alert you to traffic incidents across the country. If there is congestion on your route simply ask Truckmate to find a truck friendly route around it.
Stay safe and make calls handsfree with Bluetooth Anti-Echo.
Stay on the right side of the law. Truckmate Pro S8000 is equipped with Bluetooth handsfree technology with anti-echo for clearer communication, so that if you do have to make or take a call whilst you are on the move you can do so safely, with both hands still on the steering wheel.
Built-in MP3 player.
Truckmate S8000 comes complete with a built-in MP3 player. Now you can navigate to your destination whilst listening to your favourite music at the same time. The Truckmate S8000 comes with a headphone socket so you can plug in headphones, but it is also possible to plug in an FM transmitter enabling you to transmit both the satellite navigation instructions and your music through your trucks built-in stereo.

*System software only. Does not include Here® Maps for Life map updates.

For easier and clearer reading, users can choose between 10 different colour configurations for the navigation display.
Keeping You Within The Speed Limit.
The speed limit of nearly every road across Europe can now be clearly displayed on your Truckmate Pro S8000 at all times. Choose between speed limits for cars and advisory speed limits for trucks from 3.5t and over. In addition, My Speed® can be set to alert you if you accidentally exceed the speed limit, keeping your licence safe and reducing the threat of an accidental speeding ticket.
Award winning Speed Camera database location technology - From only £29.99 inc vat per year!
Snooper Truckmate Pro S8000 satellite navigation system is completely unique. Unlike any other truck sat nav system, Truckmate provides you with speed limit alerts specific to the class of truck you are driving. Plus you can update the speed camera database 24hrs a day 365 days a year. Truckmate uses our unique AURA™ speed camera database which is updated daily, so the second a new speed camera is added you can download it, because anything less than 100% cover is just not an option. Truckmate gets you effortlessly from A to B whilst ensuring that you get there with your driving license and livelihood intact.
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 system 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 system 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, speeding fine or accident, doesn’t it make sense to go with the speed camera database—and the company—that reduces that risk the most?

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!”
