Xata Corp., a provider of fleet optimization software, announced the availability of its new RouteTracker2 electronic onboard recorder (EOBR) for Xata Turnpike, which the maker said has been highlighted by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) as the most cost-effective DOT-compliant solution for electronic driver logs.

Available to all new and current Xata Turnpike customers, the RouteTracker2 fits in the palm of a driver’s hand and is fully compliant with current 395.15 regulations. Additionally, the new device meets the current released technical requirements for 395.16 EOBR. At this time, a remedial directive requires a 395.16 EOBR, based on a carrier’s HOS poor-compliance status. Going into effect mid-2012, this regulation is part of the FMCSA’s ongoing efforts to improve highway safety, according to the company.

“The RouteTracker2 is the latest example of Xata’s ongoing commitment to making compliance easy and affordable for owner-operators and for private and for-hire fleets of all sizes,” said Colin Warkentin, Xata vice president of development. “Simple to install, it automatically tracks hours of service, speed, idle time, hard braking, routes, arrival and departure times, engine fault-codes and other data, including state mileage for IFTA reporting. And because it comes with over-the-air upgradable firmware, it can be updated anywhere, anytime so it remains compliant, even in the face of ever-changing regulations.”

Xata noted that the RouteTracker2 features an upgraded Bluetooth stack that ensures uninterrupted connectivity with a variety of certified handheld devices, including cell phones, smartphones and tablet computers by Blackberry, HTC, Motorola, Palm, Samsung, Sanyo and more. It also features a USB 2.0 port that enables driver and vehicle data to be downloaded from the RouteTracker2 to roadside inspection devices, allowing drivers to quickly get back on the road where they belong.

“Like our other industry-leading products, Xata Turnpike with the RouteTracker2 is designed to harness the power of road science to help our customers automate and simplify the collection, analysis and communication of information to improve safety and compliance, reduce operations costs and improve customer satisfaction,” said Warkentin.
