It’s ingenious, it’s loaded, it’s a communication tool, and it’s an industry advancement with a big driver productivity factor. It’s Kenworth NavPlus and all of its features and benefits are now showcased on a special Kenworth NavPlus website within Kenworth’s home page.
The new Kenworth NavPlus website offers a six-minute video that explains and demonstrates how the PACCAR proprietary navigation and business technology system works. The website’s interactive feature enables fleet managers and drivers to easily discover the system’s capabilities by clicking through the key menus and icons on the NavPlus system’s dashboard screen.
“The interactive demo makes it easy to explore six different audio functions, truck-specific navigation from Garmin, hands-free phoning, key gauge readings, nearest Kenworth dealer location, and optional Internet connectivity service available from Sprint,” said Judy McTigue, Kenworth director for marketing planning and research. “The demo is as close as you can be to sitting in the driver seat of a new Kenworth truck and operating NavPlus. Kenworth NavPlus offers fleets and truck operators a more productive way to travel down the highway.”
The website also includes a downloadable NavPlus online brochure, operating manual, Garmin navigation users guide, Sprint Broadband information and phone compatibility guide, and diagnostic guide.
NavPlus, which is available for order on Kenworth Class 5-8 trucks, is standard on Kenworth trucks with all premium interior trim offerings and on Kenworth diesel-electric hybrid vehicles. The system is available as an optional upgrade with all other Kenworth interior trim packages.
The new website also may be accessed by going to www.kenworth.com, clicking on Products, and then clicking on Kenworth NavPlus.
