Rand McNally upgraded PC, nav units

Electronics | GPS/EOBR | August 02, 2012

Rand McNally’s TruckPC 7600 has a new hardware design and upgrades for its mobile communication fleet management system. The map and navigation company said it also cut the price to under $1,200 and reduced the size of the mounted box.

The new box is one-third the size of the prior generation, allowing it to be installed in various locations in the front or back of the cab. The product is a compliant EOBR with back-end monitoring via a web portal, two-way communication with the ability to send email attachments, on-board scanning and printing, in-cab video playback and connectivity via cellular and Wi-Fi connections. The product comes with a three-year warranty.

The company also announced upgrades to the TND 760 system, as well as introducing a new web portal. New features include a Driver Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR), the inclusion of the “Oil Field Exception” in its Hours of Service application, the ability to provide routing information to the cab automatically from back-end dispatch systems and map database and feature updates for its IntelliRoute GPS software.

The web portal is accessible for all customers of the company’s mobile communication fleet management solution products and allows quick access to features such as geofencing, landmarks locations and alerts.
