Rand McNally announced that it is dropping the price of its line of IntelliRoute TND products. Effective immediately, the IntelliRoute TND 510 now is priced at $299.99 plus applicable taxes, and the TND 710 is priced at $399.99 plus applicable taxes. The $50 price reduction includes the recently announced Lifetime Map Program that provides participating IntelliRoute TND customers with ongoing map updates as long as they own the device for a one-time fee of $89.99.
The IntelliRoute TND device, which debuted two years ago, is designed for professional drivers. In addition to truck-specific routing enhanced by Rand McNally-researched data, the units provide many other business tools such as:
• Driver-set timers to easily understand how many hours are left in the drivers’ day or week. When the driver is nearing the end of day, he or she can search for the nearest truck stop, choosing from more than 70 amenities available, making the overnight stop as efficient as possible;
• Maintenance reminders that can be set to remind drivers to service their trucks on a timely basis. A driver can search for the closest service areas along their route for planned or emergency service;
• Recording of miles by state or province. The driver can retain up to two years of data for fuel tax reporting and export the data to a spreadsheet on a personal computer; and
• Commercial-grade address book, with the ability to organize thousands of addresses in user-defined groupings.
Tested by professional drivers on the road, the IntelliRoute TND units feature louder speakers designed for truck use, larger buttons on the interface and truck-designed mounting features such as an oversized suction cup and extra-long power cable.
Concurrent with the IntelliRoute TND price drop, Rand McNally’s latest GPS – the TripMaker RVND 5510 which is designed for RVers – now is priced at $299.99 plus applicable taxes. The TripMaker RVND 7710, available in October, will be priced at $399.99 plus applicable taxes.
