UPGRADED EOBR DEVICE
The TND 760 Fleet Edition is a “next-generation” in-cab EOBR device that installs in less than 30 minutes and is said to be easily adopted by drivers. And Rand McNally has just added a new pricing plan and new features, while a long three-year warranty is standard, up from one year.
The hardware cost starts at $649 (all prices in US dollars) plus $19.95 per month for service. For $799 the device also comes loaded with Rand McNally navigation. Lease options are available starting at $39 a month.
Three monthly service-plan options are also available. The EOBR plan, offering electronic hours-of-service and vehicle-inspection reporting, is $19.95/month; the Basic plan, which offers vehicle positioning and online mapping, text and form messages, driver e-mail and attachments, as well as integration access via Rand McNally Connect, is $29.95; and the full Enterprise plan that layers on a driver scorecard, vehicle performance, critical event reporting and vehicle maintenance, costs $39.95. These prices are based on a three-year commitment.
The company says that new features are coming on stream in the next few months. By the end of June, a new back-end mapping portal with upgraded geofencing, alerting, and route replay will be up and running. This will be part of the Basic and Enterprise monthly plans. Also in development are significant enhancements to the IntelliRoute TND GPS navigation software, including the ability for fleets to send, and for drivers to receive, routes on the device.
The TND 760, Fleet Edition, integrates with a truck’s on-board computer and sends and receives information via both wi-fi and cellular modes. Rand McNally says it doesn’t require the installation of a separate ‘black box’ monitoring unit.
Information on fleet activity is managed via the company’s FleetWatcher web-based portal.
