Navistar has reached agreement with Rand McNally to make the IntelliRoute TND truck GPS units an in-dash option on all Class 6-8 International-brand trucks starting next year.
The IntelliRoute TND 710 is a 7-in. high-definition navigation unit and will include several customized screens for International drivers, including a listing of International truck dealers and locations.
“Market research and direct feedback from our customer advisor boards has consistently indicated that customers wanted a GPS option that was easy to use, durable, affordable, and which provided essential truck route specific mapping,” said Steve Gilligan, vice president, product and vocational marketing, Navistar. “The Rand McNally unit met these requirements better than any of the other units that we have reviewed.”
The custom version of the TND 710 will be available for the following International trucks: ProStar+, LoneStar, WorkStar, and DuraStar. The device also will be available for aftermarket installation at all International Truck dealer locations.
“We are very excited that International will offer the IntelliRoute TND in-dash option in its trucks,” said Dave Muscatel, CEO of Rand McNally. “Their decision is validation of the quality of our product. We have a long history with International and are looking forward to working with them on this new initiative.”
The IntelliRoute TND offers truck-specific routing using Rand McNally’s proprietary truck data; driver-set timers to easily understand how many hours are left in the drivers’ day or week; maintenance reminders; recording of miles by state or province for fuel tax reporting; and a commercial-grade address book with the ability to organize thousands of addresses in user-defined groupings.
