The Hino-Navteq truck-specific sat nav and sound-enabled infrared night vision reversing camera – normally plug-in options for Hino’s market-leading multimedia unit – are being included as part of a special 300 Series promotion.
According to Hino Australia’s Alex Stewart, the no-cost addition of these special features makes the 300 Series even better value.
“The 300 Series is already one of the most user-friendly and comfortable trucks on the road, and these extra accessories only add to its appeal and safety,” he said. “With safety of utmost importance at Hino, we’re making the most of technologies that improve a driver’s ability to conduct their job more effectively.”
The unique Hino-Navteq navigation system can be tailored to suit each individual truck or load, with the ability to input critical data such as the truck’s height, weight and dangerous goods classification. The system then calculates a route that avoids low bridges, weight-restricted roads and dangerous goods-restricted areas. It can also direct the driver using any one of 17 different languages.
The reversing camera is displayed on the multimedia unit’s 6.1-inch high-definition LCD display, and can be optioned with up to two additional cameras offering split screen viewing if required.
Hino Australia became the first truck manufacturer in the world to include a digital audio broadcast (DAB+) multimedia unit as standard equipment across its entire range last year. The multimedia unit features the large 6.1-inch high-definition LCD touch-screen, DAB+ digital radio and conventional AM/FM radio. It also includes a CD and DVD player, USB and SD input, Bluetooth™ audio streaming and hands-free phone with voice and one-touch dialling.
