Our take on the Rand McNally IntelliRoute TND 720
Built for over-the-road truck drivers
Rand McNally specializes in helping drivers get from one place to another, so why wouldn't they give truckers a hand? The IntelliRoute TND 720 portable navigator underwent many hours of testing by real rig drivers to ensure that it'll be a true road-ready companion. You can count on reliable truck-specific guidance to help you get your load to its destination safely and on time.
The TND 720 features a bright 7" touch display in a rugged chassis. The navigator's easy-to-grip form makes it convenient to move in and out of your truck. And it's got an extra-loud speaker so you can hear the spoken turn-by-turn directions easily over road noise. A built-in photo viewer lets you share your favorite shots with others on its screen. You can connect any universal rear-view camera to the navigator's dedicated input for a big-screen view of what's behind you as you're backing up.
You'll get detailed maps of the United States and Canada, plus millions of searchable points of interest so you can find nearby truck parking, services, and accommodations. You can even add your favorite out-of-the-way locations for future journeys. You can select specific restrictions for your truck, including hazmats, loaded/empty weights, height, width, number of trailers, and more, and the navigator will find the best possible routes. A virtual dashboard lets you keep track of percentage of trip completed, odometer, average speed uphill and downhill, and more.
Rand McNally's proprietary bridge height and weight restrictions information ensures the navigator finds the safest way to your destination, so you don't have to backtrack. The navigator will also show you rig-friendly amenities at the next exit, so you can find the best spots for parking and other road necessities.
You'll also get enhanced guidance features that are great for any type of vehicle, like junction view with lane assist to get you through complicated interchanges. Text-to-speech directions announce actual street names at turns. Speed limit indicators show you the posted speed limit where you're traveling, and alert you when you might be going fast enough for smokey to notice.
Sync the navigator to Rand McNally's exclusive road construction database through your computer — then hit the highway with confidence as the TND 720 notifies you of potential delays along your route and helps you find a way around them. You'll also get alerts for speed limit changes, sharp curves, and more.
Wi-Fi for weather updates
The TND 720's built-in Wi-Fi compatibilty comes in handy when you're wondering about the weather. Connect to a Wi-Fi hotspot, and the navigator can import weather conditions and forecasts for your current location, your destination, and anywhere along your route (data charges may apply, depending on your service provider). You can choose from ten different live map overlays to see important details for truckers, including wind speed and precipitation, all at no additional cost to you.
