Please note: All of the Snooper Truckmate models above are also available with different preloaded software making them ideal for use in cars (Snooper Syrius) and caravans / motorhomes (Snooper Ventura) instead of trucks/HGV's, etc (Snooper Truckmate). The mapping remains the same, the ability to enter vehicles dimensions is different as is the POI (Point of Interest) database which is aimed at a specific vehicle type e.g. campsites when using a Snooper Ventura model. The Ventura and Truckmate models also feature a car mode, so when using with a large vehicle a separate car sat nav is not required.

Truck Sat Nav Buying Guide

Truck satellite navigation systems can be effectively utilised by all commercial vehicles from trucks and HGVs to coaches and buses. The benefits to truck satellite navigation software go beyond saving time there is also the environmental and cost effectiveness of a truck sat nav system with improved fuel consumption and improved cost effectiveness.

The problem

You couldn’t have missed 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 sat nav systems designed for cars to navigate commercial vehicles.

The solution

The unique software found in truck sat navs will create a route based on the attributes of your particular vehicle. Simply enter into the truck sat nav the size and weight of your vehicle, plus the type of load if applicable and the truck 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.

Choosing between the range

With larger dashboards in trucks and HGVs, a 3.5-inch display simply wouldn't be large enough to be clearly seen. That's why truck sat navs like the Garmin nuvi 465T and TomTom PRO 7100 start with a screen size of 4.3-inch. Some truck nav systems like the Garmin dezl 560LMT, TomTom PRO 7150 Truck and Snooper S5000 Truckmate Pro all offer a slightly larger screen at 5-inch. While the top-of-the-range Snooper models like the Snooper S8000 Truckmate Pro and Snooper DB8500 Truckmate Pro Sound offer a very large and easy to read 7-inch windscreen display.

All of the Garmin and TomTom truck sat nav models available from ActiveGPS are preloaded with European maps. The Snooper truck sat nav models are available in two options a UK and Ireland map version and a European map version. So if you are just driving a truck in the UK, you aren't paying for maps you aren't going to use. Though if you think at anytime in the future you will be venturing into Europe, it's cheaper to buy the maps preloaded rather to purchase them separately later with a typical saving of £50.

All Snooper models also have a car navigation mode, so if you switch from driving a truck to driving a car you can take the Snooper Truckmate with you.
