Mack Trucks offers its new Navion R5000 navigational radio with up to six separate functions, including safety-related devices, vehicle information, and entertainment. It can be ordered now as an option on Pinnacle and Granite models.

The R5000 is Mack-installed, eliminating the need for complicated aftermarket add-on installation. It fits into a standard in-dash radio slot and has a 7-in. color LCD screen, which displays easy-to-read information in a convenient location. Drivers see vehicle performance and safety information on one display, reducing potential distraction. The unit also has large, easy-to-use controls.

The R5000’s navigation system comes pre-loaded with street maps for North America. Other functions include an AM/FM/weather band radio with CD, digital inputs for MP3 players, iPods and USB memory devices, and satellite radio controller, with a 200-watt, 4-channel amplifier

The tire-pressure monitor shows wireless data from tire-mounted pressure sensors, warning drivers when tire pressure is out of pre-set limits. It also provides real-time pressure readings for any tire on the tractor and trailer

There’s also a display with images from remote vision and blindspot cameras. The display can be preset for specific actions such as turn signal activation.

Vehicle performance data is accessed via an SAE J1939 link and is displayed on the screen, with customizable alarm screens.

The trip computer offers driver-requested route information, fuel-consumption tracking, multiple trip odometers, and speed and distance tracking through customizable displays.
