New Volvo FH, Volvo FM and Volvo FMX models will have latest in-cab upgrades aimed at improving navigation and driver-comfort features.

Volvo Trucks says the upgrades will allow drivers to experience more efficient vehicle handling.

The new track navigation system is easy to access and includes a touchscreen system.

Volvo Trucks chief project manager Anders Edenholm says the new system for services and infotainment allows drivers to "personalise their workspace".

"For example they can listen to their favourite local radio station no matter where they are, and they can have hands-free access to both their personal phone as well as work phone," he says.

"Overall this helps create an enhanced and safer driving experience.

"It increases the feeling of home when drivers are away for long periods of time."

The design of the system focused on driver comfort, Edenholm says.

"Because Dynafleet OnBoard and Navigation are integrated, drivers can receive messages with GPS coordinates and in just with a few seconds start navigating to their next assignment.

"More time with hands on the steering wheel and eyes focused on the road means a safer and more productive driver."

Other features include push-to-talk button for voice control on the steering wheel, as well as access to media streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer and TuneIn, as well as DAB [Digital Audio Broadcasting] and DAB+.
