Rand McNally rolls out new TND devices with advanced navigation, upgraded features

Rand McNally launched the next generation of its TND line. The truck-specific TND 750 and the TND 550 GPS devices feature advanced navigation and upgraded features. Both devices include Rand Navigation 2.0, the company’s proprietary new navigation software that features truck specific routing, a modern, clean interface, crowdsourced POI reviews, and striking new visuals, such as three-dimensional cities and landmarks.

The TND 750 with a high-definition, 7-in. screen and TND 550 with an equally vibrant 5-in. screen, mark the sixth generation of dedicated truck-specific GPS devices for professional drivers.

“The new navigation software greatly improves usability for drivers with more precise truck routing and options for avoiding traffic as well as a slew of advanced features like weather overlays and fuel prices,” said Stephen Fletcher, CEO, Rand McNally.

Besides new navigation, the sixth generation of TND devices have been overhauled with faster processing, stronger magnetic mounts, and sleek new designs.

Key features noted by Rand McNally incuded:
• Live traffic, current fuel prices, weather conditions down the road, and crowdsourced and rated POIs;
• Enhanced driver tools such as mileage and fuel logs and the ability to create custom routes; and
• Improved Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities for faster over-the-air updates and connections.
