Rand McNally has released the TND Tablet 85, a new dashboard tablet that the company says is fueled by navigation software built for professional drivers.
The device is centered around Rand Navigation 2.0, which features truck routing, a clean interface, crowdsourced reviews and new visuals, the company says.
To power the new navigation software, the TND Tablet 85 hardware includes a hexacore processor and a customized operating system. Beyond the truck navigation, the company says the TND Tablet 85 also includes a variety of original and upgraded features, including:
- A directional dash cam with loop recording and an integrated G sensor;
- Live traffic, current fuel prices, weather conditions and crowdsourced and rated POIs;
- Mileage and fuel logs;
- The ability to create “bread crumb” routes and an at-a-glance trip computer; and
- A magnetic mount that guides the device into place.
In addition, Rand McNally says the tablet hardware has been improved with enhanced thermal resistance up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
