TomTom has announced that it has teamed up with Truck Parking Europe to make its popular app available for TomTom customers.

Users of TomTom BRIDGE driver terminals as well as the TomTom PRO 8 series, TomTom’s high-end driver terminal that is fully compatible with TomTom WEBFLEET, will be able to download the app directly onto the devices.

One challenge for truck drivers is balancing the need to comply with resting period legislation against knowing when and where they can take their breaks in the safest, and most comfortable, way.

By bringing together TomTom’s Remaining Driving Time (RDT) app, which reminds drivers when the next stop is due, and the Truck Parking Europe (TPE) app which shows where suitable truck parking spots are located, drivers are provided with the tools for safer driving and parking in one unit.

Truck Parking Europe is already available for smartphones and has been downloaded more than 150,000 times. However, this is the first time it will be made available for dedicated truck navigation devices. The app has the largest and most up-to-date database of parking areas across Europe.

Each area is evaluated by other app users, which gives drivers access to ratings from the biggest community of truck drivers in Europe.

“Helping customers drive more safely is a core part of what TomTom’s open platforms are all about,” said George de Boer, International Alliance Manager at TomTom. “By offering Truck Parking Europe as an integrated part of TomTom driver terminals we are adding another component to our overall portfolio for truck drivers, which includes truck navigation, the Remaining Driving Time app, the recently released OptiDrive 360 for trucks and buses, full fleet management service integration and our WEBFLEET tachograph manager.”

Niels de Zwaan, director Truck Parking Europe, added: “By combining the TPE app with the TomTom RDT app, professional drivers know exactly when and where to go for the most highly recommended resting places from our Europe-wide database. This helps to ensure hassle-free driving and can contribute towards increased road safety.”

The app is available as of today and can be downloaded to TomTom PRO8 devices through the TomTom Telematics MDM platform and will be made available for download in the TomTom Bridge App Store.
