Company Car Today

Product tests

Our new product test section, Tested, provides fleet managers and company car drivers with a comprehensive test of third-party products and accessories.

Each month we’ll be testing a new product range and for his debut, our excellent new addition James Scoltock looks at the best free smartphone navigation apps, and picks out which one company car drivers should be downloading.  There’s plenty more to come as we test everything from mobile phone cradles to portable scanners, mileage tracking apps, dash cams and many more products over the coming months.
