Rand McNally IntelliRoute TND

randmcnally

Rand McNally has long been known for selling truckers’ road atlases. In September, 2009, the company released a truck-specific GPS device called the IntelliRoute Truck Navigation Device (TND). The following year, it took an ownership stake in DriverTech and began to offer fleet management systems to the long-haul trucking market.

Today, Rand McNally sells IntelliRoute TND to drivers (TND 730 LM and 530 LM) as a stand-alone GPS device and to fleets as an integral navigation component of its fleet management platforms, which include the HD100, TND 760, and TPC 7600.

New versions of the navigation application with mapping and road updates, can be uploaded wirelessly to mobile devices using Wi-Fi and cellular connectivity.

Reviewers gave the TND application the highest marks for driver satisfaction, processing speed, and return on investment. The average score for each of these categories was 4 on a scale of 5. Management reporting received the lowest score, on average.

“The TND 760 product provides our fleet many excellent features that our drivers and back office depend on. The accuracy of the locations is phenomenal and the navigation is constantly updated to reflect changes to roads, speed limits. When and if issues arise, their customer service is fast and knowledgeable to resolve them.”

“The Rand McNally TND760 IntelliRoute Navigation is easy to operate and loaded with driver friendly features. It lacks in its ability to upload fleet-wide Points of Interest, and the street-by-street speed limit alert function is regularly inaccurate.”

“We started with the original 7″ unit. They had overheating issues and failed frequently. We have been replacing them with the newer units, which are much better, but still have issues, such as taking us on restricted (No-Trucks 7-ton roads and bridges). And yes, we have them set for 40 tons. As with many products today, the manufacturers are too quick to put things on the market that are unproven.”
