LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Rand McNally introduced its next-generation truck navigation device here at the Mid-America Trucking Show.

The TND 740, priced at $400, features twice as much storage capacity, a higher-resolution 7-inch screen with brighter display, an overhauled user interface and updated maps and points of interest, the company said at a March 23 press conference.

The device can pair with Rand McNally’s ELD 50 and DC 200 electronic logging devices to provide compliance with the federal ELD mandate, which goes into effect Dec. 18.

TND 740 also features a powered magnetic mount and receives over-the-air updates.

The product is the fifth device in Rand McNally’s TND line and the successor to the TND 730.

Rand McNally also announced a partnership with insurance provider Progressive to provide joint customers with up to $500 in gift cards. The offer is good through Oct. 31 for customers who purchase Rand McNally’s ELD 50 or DC 200 devices and use Progressive as their primary commercial liability insurance provider.
