Sygic Navigation for Professional Drivers Adds 200,000 Miles of US National Truck Network Roads

01. 07. 2020

Sygic has developed a smart algorithm which prefers routes established under the Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1982 (STAA) and uses multiple variables to find the most efficient route for heavy trucks.

Global turn-by-turn navigation pioneer Sygic, trusted by more than two million professional drivers, now allows users to select STAA roads as a preference in its settings, enabling them to avoid unnecessary complications en route, and thereby increase safety and the on-time delivery of their cargos.

The new feature uses a smart algorithm, which automatically calculates the most efficient route, especially for heavy trucks, preferring STAA-compliant highways and certain primary roads for vehicles with larger turning circles.

“What is unique about our solution is that it does not blindly guide drivers to National Truck Network roads even at the cost of a detour,” said Jozef Klinovsky, Head of Product Delivery at Sygic.

“It also considers roads which are not part of the network.By incorporating several variables, including vehicle parameters, it combines various types of appropriate routes to achieve the fastest, safest and most convenient route for large trucks,” Klinovsky added.

Sygic Professional Navigation for fleets and Sygic Truck Navigation for individual truckers are mobile navigation solutions with offline maps from renowned providers and on-device 20-second waypoint optimization.

Both applications come with several useful features, including last-mile routing, live traffic and driver behaviour analysis.

The company also offers Sygic Professional Navigation as a modular software development kit (SDK) with several useful app programming interfaces (API) and easy integration with fleet and workforce management systems, allowing companies to fit the navigation experience exactly to their needs.
