Software update for IntelliRoute TND 510 released

Aug. 27, 2012

Updated map data, additional trucking points of interest, and other new features first incorporated into other IntelliRoute models have now been released for the IntelliRoute TND 510, Rand McNally said.

TND 510 units will ship with the upgraded software starting next month. Users participating in the Lifetime Maps program can also download the upgrades from the Rand McNally Dock onto existing units. 

The upgrades were first introduced with the new TND 720, which was released in June.

Features of the upgrade include:

  • Fully updated road data; includes truck-specific information such as speed limits, legal and physical restrictions, and all Rand McNally proprietary truck restriction data
  • Fully updated points of interest necessary for efficient routing, including truck stops, weigh stations, and locations at the exits ahead
  • Fuel logs – accessible from the Virtual Dashboard or Truck Tools, the feature enables drivers to record fuel purchases for a trip
  • “Avoid State or Province” preference – allows a driver to route around states or provinces to avoid seasonal road conditions, Hazmat constraints, tolls, or construction
  • Enhanced routing options – provides for increased flexibility, and faster, more efficient route calculations
  • Address book icon enhancement – enables unique icons to be created by group and shown on the map for imported locations, address book item displayed by name, distance from current location, and date added information
  • Text-to-speech alert details for custom points of interest – reduces distracted driving by providing spoken alert information for imported items such as red light cameras

Owners of the TND 710 also are eligible for the new software download if they have Lifetime Maps. Lifetime Maps for Rand McNally products can be purchased on Rand McNally’s online store.
