TeleType now offers an integrated touchscreen tire pressure monitoring system for its high-resolution commercial WorldNav Truck GPS models. The system offers flow-through valves that allow air to be pumped into the tire without the need to remove the sensor. The receiver plugs directly into the WorldNav GPS and provides real-time feedback on the temperature and pressure of each tire being monitored. The receiver can be placed as far away as 100 feet, making it possible to use the tire sensors on trailers as well as the cab. If an alert appears, the driver can touch the screen to display the location of the tire in question. Other features of the navigation software include updated maps, extended address recognition, lane assist and junction view, offering realistic images of upcoming interstate intersections with a directional arrow. Version 11 also offers an electronic onboard recording system, a database of weigh stations and truckstops, a state mileage odometer for fuel tax reporting and additional trip statistics for faster, easier recordkeeping; a traffic antenna is available as an option. The WorldNav 5200 and 7400 series offer 5- and 7-inch high-resolution screens, respectively.
