MAN EfficientCruise

GPS cruise control

MAN EfficientCruise detects the course of the planned route up to three kilometres (two miles) in advance – including inclines and declines. Based on this topography data, the selected efficiency level, and the selected route from the navigation system, MAN EfficientCruise calculates the optimum parameters for acceleration, speed and gearshift strategy.

The result: By anticipatory driving, traction interruptions are avoided as much as possible. Your vehicle is particularly economical on the road.

To activate the GPS cruise control, the driver simply selects the desired efficiency level and driving speed.

MAN EfficientCruise already includes MAN EfficientRoll.

MAN Driver App

Breakdown? Always an unwelcome break. So, whenever quick support is needed, the MAN DriverApp is there to help. For example with the emergency breakdown call. Or with a damage report. It networks driver, fleet manager and workshop and shows the way to the nearest MAN dealership. But our MAN DriverApp supports MAN drivers not only in an emergency. Moreover, it offers – in line with the vehicle and its current use – a wide range of additional functions to ease the driver’s daily routine.
