Satnav company to launch caravan friendly software

One of the largest satnav companies in the market, TomTom, is poised to launch a new version catering to caravanners and motorhome users.

The new device will take obstacles such as bridge heights, weight limits and road widths into account, to make sure holidaymakers towing a caravan or driving a large leisure vehicle do not become stuck en route to their destination.

Additional features will include pre-loaded information tailored to caravan and motorhome users such as campsites and discharge facilities for chemical toilets.

No launch date has been announced yet, although the manufacturer lists the software as ‘coming soon’.

You can make sure your leisure vehicle is protected on the road by taking out a dedicated touring caravan insurance or motorhome insurance policy. To find out more about Coast’s comprehensive cover, contact our sales team on Freephone 0800 614 849.
