ORLANDO, FLA.— Rand McNally has released its new HD 100 device available to transportation companies and professional drivers via the company’s fleet sales organization and at select travel centers.
The HD 100, a black box about the size of a deck of cards, is designed to pair with tablets, phones and the company’s IntelliRoute TND 720 GPS device, to create a mobile fleet management solution.
Designed to work with a variety of mobile devices, the HD 100 plugs into a truck’s on-board diagnostics port and records the GPS position along with vehicle-specific information, such as engine diagnostics and driving behavior. The device can be installed in 10 minutes.
Currently compatible with the IntelliRoute TND 720, the HD 100 will be available for iOS and Android devices by the end of the year.
Drivers will interact with the HD 100’s HOS and messaging functions through an application on their mobile device or via Rand McNally’s IntelliRoute TND 720 truck GPS device.
The TND 760, the HD 100 allows data integration with nearly thirty third-party dispatch and transportation management applications via Rand McNally Connect software.
Starting in November, the HD 100 will be available in retail travel centers and some online outlets. TA also will offer a bundled package including an IntelliRoute TND 720 truck GPS and an HD 100 device.
