Rand McNally Launches New Safety Dashcams
Rand McNally, based in Skokie, Illinois, launched three new models of dashboard cameras on June 23 to assist with accidents and safety documentation.
Dash Cam 100, Dash Cam 200 and Dash Cam 300 include an extra-wide camera angle, a “G” sensor, which detects significant or sudden movement — such as a collision — and automatically saves the video file with a time and date stamp. The 200 and 300 series models also have a GPS stamp.
“Everyday and professional drivers both have told us that they want to capture and share their experiences on the road and be able to save a high-quality video record should they be involved in an accident,” Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally, said in a statement. “In these new dash cameras, we have included features like time-lapse photography so that drivers can record a beautiful sunset as well as a sudden [or some other qualifier] traffic incident.”
Rand McNally also debuted an electronic logging device at the Mid-America Trucking Show in March to help drivers and small fleets easily comply with the federal ELD mandate. The device plugs into a truck’s diagnostic port under the dash and works in conjunction with driver’s Android smartphone or tablet or Rand McNally’s TND tablet.
