Cobra Electronics plans September delivery of a personal navigation device (PND) targeted to truckers.
The device will include a database of points of interest specifically aimed at professional drivers. It will also provide routing instructions for trucks whose access to certain roads might be restricted.
Cobra partnered with TruckDown Info International and ProMiles Software Development to develop the database, which includes listings of travel centers, fueling stations, heavy-duty towing services, truck-repair shops, truck-friendly hotels, weigh stations, and the like.
Cobra's PND will be sold at travel centers. The company exited the mainstream PND market in December 2007 but said it would continue to supply specialty GPS devices.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
