Cobra Electronics announced a partnership with ProMiles Software Development Corp., in association with TruckDown Info International, in the development of a new navigation system specifically for professional drivers. With this agreement, ProMiles’ and TruckDown’s national database of vendor and professional driver-specific Points of Interest (POI) will be available in the new Cobra navigation unit.
Available in September at travel centers nationwide, the new Cobra navigation unit designed specifically for professional drivers will include ProMiles and TruckDown vendor locations and POI data. Important information such as routable travel center locations — including a list of travel center amenities, fueling stations, restaurants, heavy-duty towing, truck repair, trailer shops, truck-friendly hotels, welding and weigh scales, to name a few — will be available as part of the product.
“We want to provide drivers with the highest quality of products that aid them in their everyday business,” says Tony Mirabelli, senior vice president of marketing and sales for Cobra Electronics. “With ProMiles, we are providing drivers with the information they need to optimize their routes and get them to their destination the fastest and most profitable way possible.”
“The Cobra name is synonymous with quality among professional drivers,” says Tim Pilcher, president of ProMiles. “We are looking forward to working with Cobra on developing this new GPS unit and making drivers’ already tough job a little easier.”
