International Truck Showcases Rand McNally Navigation at Mid-America Truck Show
Rand McNally’s custom in-dash version of the IntelliRoute® TND™ 710 truck-specific GPS system was prominently featured in a 2012 International Truck class 8 vehicle at the Mid-America Truck Show in Louisville, Kentucky.
In addition to providing Rand McNally’s award-winning navigation for commercial vehicles, the International Truck version of Rand McNally’s GPS unit includes several customized screens as well as a listing of International Truck dealers and locations.
“Market research and direct feedback from our Customer Advisor Boards has consistently indicated that some customers wanted a stand-alone GPS option that was easy to use, durable, affordable, and which provided essential truck route specific mapping” said Steve Gilligan, Vice President, Navistar. “The Rand McNally unit will enable us to respond to that need.”
“Our IntelliRoute® TND™ GPS products have had very strong sales through retail channels for the past several years,” said Dave Muscatel, CEO of Rand McNally. “With the new in-dash program, drivers of International trucks now have the opportunity to incorporate our award-winning navigation in a more integrated way in their vehicles.”
The truck-specific navigation and other business tools provided in the IntelliRoute® TND™ GPS unit helps drivers save time by tracking Hours of Service and miles by state for tax reporting that previously had been calculated manually, and provides a safe routing experience based upon vehicle size and contents.
Pana-Pacific, an established preferred integrator and engineering partner in the commercial vehicle market, collaborated with Navistar to integrate the IntelliRoute® TND™ into select International truck vehicles, providing a seamless factory install, as well as an aftermarket installation kit for vehicles already in the field.
