SKOKIE, IL -- June 30, 2014: Today Rand McNally announced that diagnostic code and fault code data provided by its line of mobile fleet management devices – HD 100, TNDŽ 760, and TPC 7600 – will flow seamlessly into Navistar's OnCommand™ Connection remote diagnostics system. OnCommand™ Connection offers access to fault codes, health reports and action plans to help fleet managers proactively manage vehicle maintenance and address small issues before they turn into larger repairs.

Viewed through an online portal, the OnCommand Connection provides a dashboard with on-road performance, active fault codes, severity ratings and recommended action steps identified for repair and maintenance for any truck in the fleet. By categorizing fault codes into symptoms by severity, a recommended repair plan can be conveyed to the driver including directing the driver to: proceed to the nearest maintenance facility; immediately pull over and call for assistance; or defer activity until the next scheduled maintenance stop. Workflow can be prioritized and the repair solutions managed through to completion on each truck.

"Offering an open-architecture platform has enabled us to work with industry-leading providers such as Rand McNally," said Scott Sutarik, service program manager, Navistar. "Fleets are able to leverage the technology they have already installed, such as Rand McNally's TND™ 760, along with OnCommand Connection to lower repair costs and substantially increase uptime for their fleets."

The location of the vehicle, also provided by Rand McNally devices, is mapped in proximity to nearby service locations for needed repairs; devices can provide truck-specific directions to the service locations.

"At Rand McNally, we've continued to seek out best-in-class technology providers to leverage the information already being generated by our mobile fleet management devices," said Jeff Champa, Vice President Product Management, Rand McNally. "By doing so, our customers continue to find value for their businesses far beyond their initial investment with us."
