Navistar telematics with ELD

Navistar has unveiled its new OnCommand Connection Telematics, including hardware and software to support all Class 6-8 trucks with J1939 or J1708 diagnostic ports. While the existing OnCommand Connection linked 300,000 vehicles, the new offering will be offered to those who have not used telematics in the past, the company says.

The new system was launched along OnCommand Connection Marketplace, which is a cloud-based platform for telematics-related options and apps to support drivers.

The first of the apps will be OnCommand Connection Electronic Driver Log, which aligns with a pending U.S. mandate for Electronic Logging Devices. It can be downloaded through the Google Play and Apple iTunes stores.
