Snooper Truckmate Lite S900 incorporates dedicated routing designed specifically for trucks and large vehicles - plus Snooper's multi award winning speed camera location technology.
You can't miss 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 the vehicle concerned 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 drivers use portable satellite navigation systems designed for cars, to navigate commercial vehicles.
The first satellite navigation system designed specifically for trucks and commercial vehicles.
The Snooper Truckmate Lite S900 satellite navigation system has been created to provide a solutuion to these problems.
Truckmate Lite has the answer.
This unique software will create a route based on the attributes of your particular vehicle. Simply tell the unit the size and weight of your vehicle, plus the type of load if applicable and Snooper’s Truckmate Lite 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 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 larger vehicles are only taken on appropriate roads. No other sat nav system on the market creates routes in the same way.
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 and quickly. Sat nav users on average drive 16% fewer miles, which means drivers use 16% less fuel. Plus travel times are reduced by 18% on average producing fantastic cost savings at a time when every penny counts, not to mention the cost saved avoiding damage to your vehicle and property on route!
As well as routing you safely and effectively to your destination, TRUCKMATE LITE will also guide you around the most economical route. Faced with a choice of a route using a steep incline or one with more straightforward flat roads, TRUCKMATE LITE will select the latter. Improved fuel consumption, improved cost effectiveness

|Steve Love of HDNL 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 the TRUCKMATE takes all of them into account.”|

Award winning Speed Camera location technology - From only £29.99 inc vat per year!
Snooper TRUCKMATE is completely unique. Unlike any other sat nav system TRUCKMATE provides you with speed limit alerts specific to the class of vehicle you are driving. Plus you can update the speed camera database 24hrs a day 365 days a year. Truckmate uses our unique AURA database which is updated daily, so the second a new 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 license intact.
THE AURA ADVANTAGE! THE IMPORTANCE OF VERIFICATION - All databases are not created equal.
Unlike AURA, many other GPS databases rely largely on locations provided by hobbyists who might not be able to tell a speed camera or a red light camera from a traffic flow camera or a surveillance camera. These databases could result in annoying false alerts, which could lead you to start ignoring even legitimate alerts--defeating the point of having a GPS database in the first place.
Other databases are not updated every day, and they also limit how often you can download updates. As a result, devices using these 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 and high risk zone that goes into the AURA database. by contacting:
The AURA 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 and speed camera location manufacturers. Snooper has won dozens of awards for innovation and product performance and has been establised since 1979.
If you’re considering a GPS 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?

“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.”
