Mentor Engineering announced the development of Ranger, a rugged mobile computer with a fully integrated suite of options. The device has an internal wireless modem that supports both data and voice communications on GPRS and CDMA networks.

Ranger can accommodate hands-free voice calling and turn-by-turn driving prompts with integrated navigation. An internal 16 channel GPS receiver, magnetic stripe reader, Smart Card reader, multiple inputs/outputs, and MIL STD 810F rating provide a mobile computing platform for a wide range of fleet management and telematic needs, the company says. Ranger is certified for use on the major North American wireless networks and in Europe.

Updating Ranger units over-the-air is made simple and effortless with Mentor’s XMobile Manager (XMM). XMM is a sophisticated, easy-to-use software suite that allows you to quickly update programs on your mobile units from the office at any time, eliminating costs associated with downtime.
