Mercedes-Benz Launches New Navigation System For Their Atego, Axor And Actros Commercial Vehicles

Mercedes has unveiled today a new navigation system for their Atego, Axor and Actros model series commercial vehicles. In total, map material is provided for 26 European countries, with a total of 15 European languages available for the voice instructions. But what makes the new navigation so unique isn't its ability to provide directions, as any navigation can perform this task, but rather its ability to take into account the specific requirements of commercial vehicles (weight restrictions, limited height and width clearances, etc.) and subsequently provide the best route taking into account these factors. To make the system work, the vehicle's operator simply enters into the navigation system a number of key details about the vehicle and load, and the navigation system handles the rest.
