CHICAGO – Trimble Mobile Solutions (TMS) is using NAVTEQ as its digital map provider for the TMS TrimFleet family of products within North America. TMS uses NAVTEQ maps for its TrimWeb and TrimView solutions to improve fleet management operations and vehicle tracking efficiency. Trimble’s TrimFleet product line provides fleet owners with a range of productivity solutions ranging from simple tracking and messaging to highly integrated, location-based statusing and reporting. The TrimWeb and TrimView solutions are used by fleets that require a permanently installed in-vehicle device. This is achieved through the addition of sensors and a messaging terminal. Using NAVTEQ maps, fleet owners are able to find the exact location of each of their vehicles to make sure they are routing them in the most efficient and cost-conscious way. The NAVTEQ database includes detailed attributes, from turn restrictions and relative road crossing heights to road segment access restrictions, one-way streets, and speed categories that help optimize routing. Additionally, NAVTEQ maps include points of interest, including restaurants, hospitals, shopping centers, and leisure facilities.
