Rand McNally unveiled an in-cab tablet on March 24 with navigation and features for professional truck drivers.

The TND 1050 tablet features four key elements including navigation, a high definition display, durability, and trucker-specific tools.

Rand McNally made the announcement at the Mid-America Trucking Show.

“By spending time and communicating with thousands of drivers, we’ve heard loud and clear what’s most valuable to professional drivers,” said Ivan Sheldon, vice president of product management at Rand McNally. “Feature overload isn’t helpful. Instead, drivers want more accurate mapping and navigation, easier-to-see screens, louder voice guidance, and a more durable device that reduces the risk of breakage. in the event of a fall.

Rand McNally said the tablet has improved navigation functionality with 33% more truck-specific road data than other GPS vendors.

The company also noted that the 10-inch screen has improved mapping and graphics. He also underscored the strength of the tablet with its removable tablet protector, a sturdy Corning Gorilla Glass display and three mounting options. Trucker tools include an enhanced driver camera, vehicle inspection reports, and receipt tracking. — Transportation topics
