Sat-navs ‘are a benefit for fleet drivers’

New research, commissioned by satellite-navigation provider, TomTom, confirms that the use of sat-nav offers benefits for fleet drivers.

The research, conducted recently in the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and the US, found that the use of the devices heightened driver awareness and reduced stress levels, as well as reducing the driver’s workload.

It also found that satellite navigation improved driving behaviour when motorists were driving through an unknown area, as well as reducing the number of miles driven and the journey time.

Harold Goddijn, CEO of TomTom, said: “We are pleased to see objective research further validate the fact that navigation contributes to driving safety and efficiency.”
