Xata Corporation and ALK Technologies announced the launch of CoPilot Truck 8 Professional integrated with XataNet, providing users with advanced functionality, updated PC*MILER 25 routing, and availability on a wider range of hardware platforms.
A fully on-board navigation system, CoPilot Truck 8 Professional calculates optimal, truck-specific routes on-board without using mobile communications or off-board computations, ensuring reliable, rapid access to offline highway and street-level digital maps. Voice-guided, truck-specific turn-by-turn directions are automatically generated, with optimal new routes instantly calculated if a driver misses a turn or deviates from the planned route.
Xata delivers real-time critical information on vehicle and driver performance, making it easy for fleet managers, dispatchers, and drivers to collect, sort, view, and analyze data to help reduce costs, increase safety and compliance, and improve customer satisfaction. Xata's products seamlessly combine enterprise software, on-board computing, real-time communications and global positioning.

Lane Assist — Real signpost information combined with lane indicator arrows provide clear guidance on which lane to take.
CoPilot ClearTurn — Provides a clear, realistic view on the approach to complex intersections and highway exits.
•Updated PC*MILER 25 Routing — Includes more than 3.5 million commercial truck restrictions and allowances, including bridge heights and clearances, load limits, weight limits and allowances, one-way road designations, left-hand and dangerous turn restrictions, as well as truck-restricted and truck-designated roads. It also includes millions of points of interest including truck services, truckstops, rest areas, and weigh stations.
