Peterbilt Enhances SmartNav System

Peterbilt Motors Company announced new enhancements to SmartNav, its groundbreaking proprietary navigation and infotainment system. Now included in SmartNav are expanded audio controls and ten new virtual gauges. New standard virtual gauges include engine oil temperature, and transmission temperature.

“SmartNav is designed specifically for the trucking industry, providing drivers vehicle operational information, navigation and infotainment features,” said Bill Kozek, Peterbilt General Manager and Peterbilt Vice President. “These new features expand its capabilities and bring more information and value to the operator.”

SmartNav features a high-resolution, glove-friendly and scratch-resistant touch screen that allows drivers to easily and intuitively operate the system. SmartNav also offers important user interface capabilities and vehicle interface read-outs including audible and visual alerts and notifications, Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming, vehicle diagnostics, and multiple entertainment options.

The expanded capabilities of SmartNav include dead reckoning, which helps maintain the truck’s location when positioned in areas where the satellite signal is blocked, such as tunnels and urban environments, and increased availability of typical audio functions while in motion. The list of new optional virtual gauges includes popular selections such as Air Filter Restriction, Fuel Filter Restriction, Suspension Load Pressure, Brake Application Pressure, Front and Rear Axle Oil Temperature, and an Ammeter.

“This expansion of SmartNav’s capabilities is the next step in this technology’s evolution which is aimed at helping our customers, and their drivers, get the most out of their trucks, and to operate more cost effectively,” said Kozek.
