The RouteTracker2 electronic onboard recorder (EOBR) for Xata Turnpike devices has been updated for easier installation, compliance with regulation 395.16, and improved connectivity to a variety of devices.

The RouteTracker2 fits in the palm of a driver's hand and is available to all new and current Xata Turnpike customers, Xata Corp. said.

"The RouteTracker2 is the latest example of Xata's ongoing commitment to making compliance easy and affordable for owner-operators and for private and for-hire fleets of all sizes," said Colin Warkentin, vice president of development, Xata. "Simple to install, it automatically tracks hours of service, speed, idle time, hard braking, routes, arrival and departure times, engine fault-codes and other data, including state mileage for IFTA reporting. And because it comes with over-the-air upgradable firmware, it can be updated anywhere, anytime so it remains compliant, even in the face of ever-changing regulations."

The device features an upgraded Bluetooth stack to ensure connectivity to handheld devices, including cell phones, smartphones, and tablet computers made by BlackBerry, HTC, Motorola, Palm, Samsung, Sanyo and more.

It also features a USB 2.0 port that enables driver and vehicle data to be downloaded from the RouteTracker2 to roadside inspection devices.
