MAN recently launched its over-the-air update service, MAN Now, which is available to customers in the European Union, United Kingdom, Norway, and Switzerland. This service lets drivers install updates on demand without having to go to a workshop as long as they have access to mobile Internet. The service is available across the newest MAN Truck Generation, but there is also an option to retrofit older models to be compatible with MAN DigitalServices.
The first feature customers can install over the air is MAN OnlineTraffic, a service that uses real-time traffic information to help with route planning. Examples include marking traffic jams and providing height clearance and weight limit information for bridges along a route. MAN OnlineTraffic feeds that data into the navigation system to calculate the best possible route. MAN OnlineTraffic is free for one year for trucks equipped with Navigation Advanced or for two years for trucks with Navigation Professional.
More To Come
MAN plans on adding several new features to its Now service throughout the year, including MAN MapUpdate, which the company says has “up-to-date maps and geographically regional packages.” Other future updates will address needs for specific trucking applications, offering software that improves fuel efficiency, makes gear changing smoother, or adds support for various languages.
