Aug 16, 2011 11:38 AM
Rand McNally has developed an in-cab electronic on-board recorder (EOBR) device that combines navigation with a robust mobile communication system.
The TND 760, Fleet Edition, seamlessly integrates into a truck’s on-board computer and sends and receives information via both Wi-Fi and cellular. It is designed to be set up in less than 30 minutes and does not require installation of a separate “black box” monitoring unit.
Despite its compact design, the TND 760 features an array of capabilities including fleet communications via e-mail, driver and vehicle performance monitoring, electronic hours of service (HOS) compliance, and truck-specific navigation. Information on fleet activity is managed via Rand McNally’s enhanced FleetWatcher web-based portal.
The TND760 is the result of a 10-month business partnership between Rand McNally and DriverTech.
Key features of the device include:
•Automated HOS with alerts and warnings for drivers •Simplified log certification and correction •Real-time access to HOS data via FleetWatcher portal •Wi-Fi and cellular communication •Over-the-air programmability •Rand McNally Workflow •Text and form-based messages •Text-to-speech e-mail playback and verbal turn-by-turn route guidance •Truck-specific routing based on loads and other metrics, powered by Rand McNally’s IntelliRoute TND navigation •Detailed mapping and vehicle proximity search •More than 200 distinct vehicle-specific metrics •Comprehensive fuel- and driver-performance reporting •Visibility to engine diagnostics For more information, call 1-800-641-7263.
