Isuzu Australia has deployed HERE Navigation connected in-vehicle navigation system in its new 2022 model year F Series, FX Series and FY Series trucks sold in Australia.

According to Isuzu’s Future of Trucking Report, fleet operators are seeking increased safety and business efficiency dividends from the technology incorporated in their road transport equipment.

With the new 2022 F Series, FX Series and FY Series trucks equipped with HERE Navigation, Isuzu truck drivers are able to receive the latest, updated and accurate maps, live traffic, and recommended truck routes to complete their jobs, by using mobile phone data from a tethered smartphone. This fully integrated solution will be deployed on Isuzu’s embedded IVI platform – the MyIsuzu Co-Pilot, so drivers receive guidance on the go for safe driving.

“HERE Navigation gives us the flexibility and agility required to offer one of the most interactive and intuitive navigation experiences on the market. The accurate maps and location data ensure that our operators have the latest route and navigation information available,” said Grant Cooper, chief of Strategy at IAL.

“When it comes to connectivity, Isuzu strives to be flexible and offer our customers the right data to meet their specific business needs. From a navigation standpoint, HERE Navigation allows us to do just that with an innovative approach.”
