Navistar’s integrated OnCommand Connection Telematics solution, announced in March, is now available for purchase.
The OnCommand Connection Telematics solution includes hardware and applications in support of all makes and all models of Class 6 through 8 vehicles that are equipped with J1939 or J1708 diagnostic port.
OnCommand Connection Telematics and Advanced Remote Diagnostics are also integrated with the OnCommand Connection Electronic Driver Log (EDL), which automates federal Hours of Service compliance requirements that are mandated for all heavy-duty trucks by Dec. 18. OnCommand Connection Electronic Driver Log also aides in fuel tax reporting, vehicle inspection reports, vehicle idling reports and vehicle trip mapping history, in order to make the driver’s job easier and more productive, while feeding this information to the back office to enable greater efficiencies.
“Only about 30% of small fleets are benefiting from the amazing power of telematics,” said Terry Kline, Navistar’s senior vice president and chief information officer. “In keeping with our DriverFirst philosophy and uptime mission, we developed OnCommand Connection Telematics to make this information easily available and useable for the entire industry, from owner/operators to large fleets, on an integrated, predictable and easy-to-understand basis. Our solution explains not just what that red light on the dashboard means, but also what to do about it, so the driver, fleet manager, and safety manager can understand.”
