Rand McNally Unveils New Device

By Madhubanti Rudra October 10, 2012

Well known maps, directions and travel content provider, Rand McNally has recently introduced an electronic driver log called "HD 100", at the American Trucking Association Management Conference and Exhibition.

The deviceis capable of turning GPS units, tablet computers and smartphones into electronic onboard recorders (EOBRs) for tallying driver hours of service (HOS) information and will be made commercially available in April of 2013 to Android tablet users.  Later in the year, the HD 100 will be made available for other platforms including Android smartphones and iOS tablets and smartphones.

The HD 100's Hours of Service Recorder qualifies as a compliant electronic driver log. Plugging into a truck's on-board diagnostics port, the device records the truck's GPS position along with critical vehicle-specific information such as engine diagnostics and driving behavior.

It does not take more than 10 minutes to install the sleek device. In order to interact with the HD 100's HOS and messaging function, the drivers simply need to download an application  and run it on their mobile device or Rand McNally's IntelliRoute TND 720.

“With the HD 100, Rand McNally now provides a wide range of options for compliance, communication, and electronic Hours of Service. Our product line offers large fleets and smaller operators unparalleled flexibility with features and pricing options. Our goal is to be hardware agnostic in order to provide a cost effective EOBR solution for owner operators who already own a smart phone, tablet, or one of our GPS devices and the HD 100 accomplishes this objective. The HD 100 will help fleets and drivers alike with meeting the upcoming EOBR implementation mandated by MAP 21,” CEO of Rand McNally, Dave Muscatel, said in a statement.

The HD 100 also allows for data integration with more than 20 third-party dispatch and fuel tax applications via Rand McNally Connect software.
