TomTom vehicle tracking device launched at CV Show

Birmingham, UK: TomTom’s new Link 510 vehicle tracking and communication device launched at the CV Show today helps businesses to contain the rising cost of fuel.

Link 510 offers greater control over driving efficiency by monitoring driver behaviour, as well as the vehicle’s position and movement.

Transport companies can use TomTom Link 510 to report fuel consumption, over-revving and fuel levels by utilising a truck’s standard fleet management system (FMS) interface. This allows detection of fuel drops and refills trigger automatic notifications to help managers detect incidences of fuel theft, which has become a growing concern for businesses across Europe.

“The latest Link device highlights our commitment to constant innovation, providing easily implemented products which offer a significant boost to businesses’ bottom line,” said Thomas Schmidt, managing director TomTom Business Solutions.

“The soaring cost of fuel has made it the number one concern for many fleet operators and the Link 510 builds on TomTom’s existing product portfolio to give them even greater power to improve efficiency, monitor driver behaviour and deliver cost savings.”

“We believe that every company that uses vehicles for business will become more profitable by putting the LINK 510 at the heart of their vehicles”

The slimline device can be quickly installed into any vehicle and works alongside TomTom’s online fleet management system Webfleet to provide detailed reports on all aspects of vehicle utilisation and driver behaviour,” he says.
