Truck Parking Europe announced it has teamed up with TomTom to make its Truck Parking Europe (TPE) app available for TomTom PRO 8 and TomTom BRIDGE driver terminals.

The app shows where all truck parking spots are, which allows truck drivers to know when and where they can take their breaks more efficiently, according to the company.

The Truck Parking Europe app is already available for smartphones, but 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 more than 23,000 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, according to the company.

TomTom also offers an app that is intended to be used in tandem with the Truck Parking Europe app. TomTom’s Remaining Driving Time (RDT) app reminds drivers on when their next stop is due, accoding to the company.

The app can be downloaded to TomTom PRO8 devices through the TomTom Telematics MDM platform.
