Award winning Speed Camera location technology
Snooper Truckmate is completely unique. Unlike any other satellite navigation system Truckmate provides you with speed limit alerts specific to the class of vehicle you are driving. Plus you can update the speed camera database 24hrs a day 365 days a year. Truckmate uses our unique AURA™ database which is updated daily, so the second a new camera is added you can download it, because for the professional truck driver anything less than 100% cover is just not an option. Truckmate gets you effortlessly from A to B whilst ensuring that you get there with your driving license intact.
THE AURA™ ADVANTAGE! THE IMPORTANCE OF VERIFICATION - All speed camera databases are not created equal.
Unlike AURA™, many other GPS databases rely largely on locations provided by hobbyists who might not be able to tell a speed camera or a red light camera from a traffic flow camera or a surveillance camera. These speed camera databases could result in annoying false alerts, which could lead you to ignore legitimate alerts - defeating the point of having a speed camera alert system in the first place.
Other speed camera databases are not updated every day, and they also limit how often you can download updates. As a result, devices using these databases are not as up-to-date as they could be and are likely to miss alerts. Snooper's AURA™ speed camera database is constantly updated, and can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Snooper speed trap location technology has won dozens of awards for innovation and product performance and has been established since 1979.
If you’re considering a GPS database to reduce your risk of an unintended speeding ticket or accident doesn’t it make sense to go with the database—and the company—that reduces that risk the most?

- Brand Information
Launched in 2007, Truckmate was the pioneer of truck GPS satellite navigation systems with routing designed specifically for trucks, HGV and larger vehicles and continues to enhance, develop and evolve our range. Since it’s creation, Truckmate continues to work together with commercial vehicle industry leaders, haulage operators, owner drivers and 1000’s of professional truck drivers and using our technical expertise is enabling us to produce the most comprehensive range of GPS truck sat nav systems available.
The Truckmate range are simple and easy to use designed to aid a drivers every day working life. Enter the dimensions of your vehicle including height, width, weight and load and Truckmate will navigate you along truck friendly routes, keeping you on the easiest and most economical route to your destination, avoiding low bridges, height and width restricted roads plus countless other hazards a professional truck driver may face.
Truck Navigation – The Problem
As professional drivers, you couldn’t miss the almost constant press reports of trucks or HGV’s driving down unsuitable roads, getting stuck under low bridges or getting stranded in tight locations. The majority of these issues are caused by drivers either not knowing the local areas or using sub-standard navigation devices that are designed for smaller vehicle use. It’s reported that these mis-haps have caused millions of pounds of damage to property or time-lost to haulage firms having to redirect or perform difficult manoeuvres in tight lanes.
Truckmate - The Solution.
The Truckmate range of GPS satellite navigation devices will route drivers along the correct routes for their larger HGV or vehicle, avoiding those narrow lanes, small villages and low bridges. Using Here maps, the market leading mapping company and their core truck data, Truckmate further enhances this data with our unique routing algorithm to provide greater cover on smaller and narrower roads across Europe. Truckmate has more hazard information on more roads across Europe and now covers over 40 countries including Cyprus and Ukraine.
Truckmate satellite navigation will save you pounds in time and fuel.
Truck GPS satellite navigation devices are proven to reduce the amount of miles driven by up to 16%. This is due to navigation devices guiding drivers along the correct routes, reducing the amount of miles and fuel for your journey. Travel times can also be reduced by up to 18% which is key for truck drivers and multiple deliveries during the day.
The No.1 choice trusted by drivers.
More truck drivers across Europe choose Truckmate as their GPS satellite navigation device of choice. From the simple to use Truckmate S2700 with a 4.3 inch screen and our Truckmate SC5800 DVR with built-in HD dash cam to our new flagship device Truckmate S8110 with built-in TV, all of our truck sat nav range come with full European mapping as standard and free lifetime map updates*
Industry testimonials and reviews.
Steve Love of the Home Delivery Network says:
“It was great to be able to work with Performance Products Ltd on creating something that is certain to have a huge impact on the haulage industry. It’s no longer acceptable for drivers to be content with sat navs made for smaller vehicles — there are specific issues involved with driving HGVs, and TRUCKMATE takes all of them into account.”
John Beddow is an HGV driver for Uniloads, the country’s leading specialist in the delivery of commercial vehicles throughout the UK and Europe.
“I drive a number of different sizes and types of trucks, and Truckmate has proved invaluable. Although I’ve used sat navs for years and they’ve all saved me time, I often used to find myself going 15 miles out of the way before realising I couldn’t go any further. Nothing removes the unique hassles of truck driving like Truckmate.”
Andy Saunders drives for the UK’s leading manufacturer of natural stone and concrete hard-landscaping products.
“There’s nothing like Truckmate on the market, and there’s no comparison with other brands. Every other sat nav was designed for cars, but Truckmate was clearly made with commercial vehicles in mind. Because of the specific restrictions we face every day in our jobs, it’s immensely useful for driving in the city and in the country. I recently lent my device to one of my colleagues, and he didn’t want to let it go!”
