Rand McNally Unveils Next-Gen GPS Devices

Rand McNally

Rand McNally has introduced the latest generation of its GPS devices for commercial truck drivers.

The redesigned IntelliRoute TND 730 and TND 530 LM feature new hardware, a faster processor, new graphical options and visual upgrades to its mapping, the company said in its Aug. 21 announcement.

In addition to Rand McNally’s truck navigation software, the 7-inch and 5-inch devices also offer new features such as toll cost estimates in route planning, more advanced lane guidance instruction, an “avoid areas” option and an enhanced multistop trip-planning feature.

Both products are compatible with Rand McNally’s HD 100, a separate device that enables electronic hours-of-service logging and other fleet-management features. The HD 100, which plugs into a truck’s onboard diagnostic port, also works with the TND 720 and Android and Apple tablets and smart phones.

The TND 730 and TND 530 LM represent the fourth generation of Rand McNally’s IntelliRoute TND product line, which launched in 2009.

The new products’ faster processing speeds enable quicker route calculation, and point-of-interest searches and route comparisons, as well as faster screen-to-screen transitions, the company said.

The devices include lifetime map updates and can use a WiFi connection to receive current information on fuel prices, weather and traffic.
