If you have a smartphone, tablet or wearable, we don’t need to tell you about how technological innovation is shaping the rapid evolution of the devices in our personal lives.
These changes aren’t just limited to the devices in our homes, cars and pockets. From the electronic logging device (ELD) mandate to the shift from 3G to 4G LTE wireless networks, the transportation industry is also experiencing its own technological evolution, including options for in-cab devices to increase productivity, compliance and connectivity.
With this in mind, earlier this month we unveiled the Trimble Duo™ – a ruggedized in-cab device that combines a display with a vehicle gateway. For fleets looking to navigate the industry’s technological changes, the Trimble Duo offers several distinct advantages, including:
- Simplified installations: With the Trimble Duo, you get a display and vehicle gateway all in one device. No more complex installations or running cables in the truck’s headliner; the Trimble Duo connects and mounts easily on your vehicle’s dashboard. Time is money and maximizing the utilization of your trucks is crucial to your fleet’s bottom line. With these streamlined installations, you can make the change quickly and get your trucks back where you want them to be: on the road.
- Powerful Android platform: Leveraging Android gives you access to the latest innovations from Trimble. With Trimble Duo, you can give your drivers access to some of our solutions right at their fingertips, helping them reach new levels of productivity and efficiency.
- 4G LTE connectivity: Starting later this year, wireless carriers will begin to repurpose older 2G and 3G networks as part of their strategy to invest in faster, more robust 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks. For fleets that have onboard equipment that relies on 2G or 3G networks, they may begin to soon see a degradation or “sunset” in coverage, which will eventually render these devices obsolete.
The Trimble Duo connects to 4G LTE networks, giving your fleet and drivers a fast and reliable connection wherever the road may take them. If you have 2G or 3G-connected devices, the Trimble Duo provides you with an avenue to robust connectivity that will be available for many years to come.
With the Trimble Duo, your fleet and drivers can harness a device that will give you unprecedented access to the latest in fleet mobility technology.
