Navistar announced several enhancements to its OnCommand Connection remote diagnostics and fuel efficiency upgrades to its ProStar during a press conference at the 2014 American Trucking Associations’ 2014 Management Conference & Exhibition in San Diego.

Beginning in November, Navistar will roll out new feature enhancements for its OnCommand Connection offering, including a mobile app, customized geo-fencing capabilities enabling customers to filter their dashboards into geographic zones and direct integration with major component suppliers beginning with Cummins.

“With our all-makes open architecture remote diagnostics solution, we’re bringing connectivity to life in a results-oriented, bottom-line way,” said Mike Cerilli, vice president and general manager, OnCommand Connection. “One of our fleet customers recently experienced a 28 percent reduction in down days and a 31 percent reduction in repairs by leveraging the vehicle health reports and repair recommendation data provided by the OnCommand Connection system, and we’re just getting started with new feature development.”
