Setting up your vehicle

In Navigator you can use a predefined template for route calculation (Bicycle, Car, Bus, Pedestrian, Motorcycle, Motorhome, Truck) or create your own vehicle profile which exactly matches your own car and driving habits.

TomTom maps can help to navigate large vehicles like trucks, buses or camper-vans.
