Rand McNally's OverDryve 8 Pro II features a new design that is three times faster than the first-generation devices, according to a statement from the company. Routing on the new OverDryve Pro is powered by Rand Navigation 2.0, the company’s proprietary navigation system that debuted earlier this year.
The newest iteration of the OverDryve 8 Pro is an all-in-one truck GPS, tablet, dashcam, and satellite radio. Other innovations include a fully adjustable built-in dashcam, which can be moved and positioned to record an optimal view, and a stronger magnetic mount, which enables a quick and easy snap-in and snap-out of the device yet holds the unit more firmly when mounted.
Other key features of the OverDryve 8 Pro include:
- High-definition 8-inch screen
- Rand Navigation 2.0 featuring advanced truck routing, a modern, clean interface, and easy to see visuals such as three-dimensional cities and landmarks
- A fully adjustable dashcam with loop recording and an integrated G sensor to create optimal recordings
- Built-in SiriusXM radio with the first three months of service free
- An upgraded, stronger magnetic mount that supports tethering to enable playing audio from OverDryve 8 Pro through any Bluetooth speaker
- Dedicated digital signal processing for greater audio clarity on calls
- Increased battery capacity and more powerful processors for faster routing and smoother graphics
- Live traffic, current fuel prices, and weather conditions down the road
- Enhanced driver tools such as mileage and fuel logs
- ELD-readiness with the Rand McNally DriverConnect app on board
- Safety features such as voice assistance and hands-free calling and texting
“What we’ve done with this next generation is upgrade and improve upon the most valuable features of our OverDryve Pro devices,” said Stephen Fletcher, CEO of Rand McNally. “Rand Navigation 2.0 on its own brings OverDryve Pro to a whole new level of technological sophistication for professional drivers. The new navigation significantly improves usability with truly remarkable, glanceable graphics and provides access to advanced features like weather and traffic overlays that give current conditions and those down the road.”
