Cummins Connected Software Updates give fleet managers and drivers the flexibility when to run updates that are typically centered around specific performance improvements.

Zonar recently announced the availability of Cummins Connected Software Updates, an over-the-air programming solution for maximizing uptime and performance of Cummins-powered vehicles.

Cummins Connected Software Updates give fleet managers and drivers the flexibility when to run updates that are typically centered around specific performance improvements. The updates can take as little as five minutes from start to finish with no associated labor costs when using Zonar OTAir, an easy to use smartphone app. 

"With Cummins Connected Software Updates, over-the-air programming for commercial vehicles is no longer a future concept," said Gary Schmidt, vice president of business solutions at Zonar. "Through our ongoing collaboration with Cummins, we’re bringing a smartphone accessible solution to market that helps fleets eliminate the need to schedule shop visits for calibrations. We believe this will help spur the creation of broader industry innovations focused on reducing the time spent by fleets waiting for updates."

The companies said the new offering can reduce downtime, increase fleet control and ensure data security. Drivers are able to easily approve updates on their smart phone or tablet and start the over-the-air process without additional hassle.

"The availability of Cummins Connected Software Updates through Zonar’s OTAir app allows customers with Cummins engines more control and convenience over the performance and management of their fleets, saving time and costs associated with traditional calibration methods," said Todd Mysak, director of business development at Cummins. "The collaboration between Zonar and Cummins helps us deliver on our commitment to provide innovative solutions that ensure fleets with Cummins engines perform at optimal levels.”
