Rand McNally’s TND 1050 tablet is a truck navigation device that the company says has been specifically designed to withstand the rigors of on-road trucking and meet the needs of professional drivers.
The features of the TND 1050 tablet:
- Enhanced Rand Navigation with 33% more truck-specific road data than other GPS vendors
- Large 10-inch high-definition display with improved mapping and graphics for ease of use
- A removable tablet cover
- Robust Corning Gorilla glass screen
- Three solid mounting options
- Improved trucker tools, including an improved camera for driver and vehicle inspection reports and receipt tracking
At the heart of the TND 1050 is the new, improved navigation built by Rand McNally. The new tablet provides more truck-specific road data, which means drivers will be less likely to be routed unnecessarily due to misinterpreted road signs or a lack of weight-limited routes. The navigation software includes thousands of additional low bridges, 28,000 additional miles of weight-limited roads, and 15,000 additional miles of no-truck roads.
The large-format device is also designed to withstand the rigors of the road. The TND Tablet 1050’s Gorilla Glass display is said to be eight times stronger than conventional glass and four times more scratch resistant. New youablet also comes with a rugged case or protection designed to protect it from the rigors of the road.
The new tablet also has an improved camera, with a high performance image sensor. This allows the driver to complete reports or track receipts on the same device.
The TND 1050 tablet is available at travel centers, truck stops and other locations. It sells online for $649.99.
