HOUSTON, Sept. 10, 2018—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) today announced that the CoPilot® Truck in-cab navigation app for Android™ can now be updated over the air via Wi-Fi. For customers using the CoPilot Truck app on Android, they can now distribute important map updates across their entire driver base, eliminating the need to manually update the data one device or truck at a time. The announcement was made at Trimble's third annual in.sight user conference + expo.
"Providing drivers with the latest navigation data is crucial to ensure on-time deliveries, reduce out of route miles and improve fuel economy across an entire fleet," said Bryan Coyne, general manager of Trimble Transportation Mobility. "With the simple push of a button, fleets with CoPilot Truck for Android can implement these updates remotely, quickly giving drivers accurate information and freeing up maintenance teams to focus on other, more pressing issues."
The CoPilot Truck app provides smart route planning and offline navigation, enabling fleets to boost route compliance and measure driver performance, enhance customer service and on-time deliveries, and maximize revenue and the bottom line with reduced fuel and operating costs.
New features also available with this version of CoPilot Truck include Driver Map Feedback, which allows drivers to mark a problem location to enable map improvements. The new version also includes the Road Warnings feature, which is powered by DriverIntel™ and gives drivers early warnings of upcoming rollover risk hazards when the driver is navigating through a high-risk area.
"This enhancement of the CoPilot Truck app is an example of the advanced capabilities available on Android," said Coyne. "As we continue to leverage Android-powered solutions, we are helping customers evolve their drivers' experience and streamline performance across their fleet."
