TravelCenters of America Enhances Trucker Electronics Offering at TA and Petro Stopping Centers

TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters), operator of the TA® and Petro Stopping Centers® travel center brands, announced today that the Cobra 29 LTD Pro Pack -- a CB, external speaker and mic holder combination pack -- is the newest item to be offered exclusively at TA and Petro Travel Stores. TravelCenters announced its first three exclusively offered items last summer, which included the Cobra 5825LX CB/GPS Bundle Pack, Magellan RoadMate Commercial GPS listing TA and Petro locations, and the Rand McNally Large Scale Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas.

TA and Petro also announced the availability of the TND™ 760 Electronic On-board Recorder (EOBR) from Rand McNally. The Surface Transportation Act of 2012 mandated the use of EOBRs for Hours of Service (HOS) logging; all trucks must be equipped with EOBRs by October 2015. The TND™ 760 EOBR can be installed by participating TA Truck Service and Petro:Lube service and repair facilities. The TND™ 760 logs HOS, tracks fuel efficiency, detects accidents, monitors vehicle maintenance by detecting fault codes, and tracks vehicle location through GPS, Wi-Fi® and cellular communication. Features are dependent upon the accompanying service plan selected. Owners and fleets can access this data through an easy-to-use web portal.

Drivers can see the TND™ 760 demonstrated at the TA/Petro booth (#19156) at the Mid-America Trucking Show (MATS), March 21-23, 2013, at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville. Drivers can also register to win a Cobra 29 LTD Pro Pack or a Rand McNally Large Scale Motor Carriers’ Road Atlas at the TA/Petro booth at MATS -- drawings will be held every hour throughout the show!
