Qualcomm’s Mobile Computing Platform 100 Series (MCP100) will now be available through Navistar’s International Truck dealers. “We’re excited to be the first OEM to offer Qualcomm’s MCP100 through our dealer channel,” said Ramin Younessi, group vp-product development and business strategy for Navistar.
“Selling this product and associated services through our dealers improves ease of business for our customers and extends this capability to fleets of any size. This is just the first step, but an important one, in our evolving telematics strategy with Qualcomm,” he added. Younessi said this development also allows customers to finance Qualcomm hardware through Navistar Financial Corp.
The MCP100 offers a color-touch screen and remote control device with advanced in-cab, text-to-speech capabilities. Additional services include automated arrival and departure, hours of service, navigation, idle time, excess speeding, over RPM, vehicle faults and fuel tax reporting.
