HD100 E-Log Device Overview(1.38 min)
HD100 Installation(3.35 min)
Rand McNally HD100 is compliant with current FMCSA HOS rules and vehicle inspection reporting regulations. But it cannot work without a TND720/TND730. Don't have one? Check our TND730. Together they can reduce your paper works and complete your logs faster.
As regulations change, it provide software updates via the Dock™. Connect the HD100 to the Dock to obtain the updates.
How TND720/TND730 and HD100 works?
TND720/TND730 and HD100 works together with your vehicle's Electronic Control Module (ECM) to provide a fully compliant Hours of Service device, that satisfies the requirements of FMCSA's Regulations, Part 395.2, Part 395.3 and Part 395.15. See RoadTrucker's article "What you need to know about Electronic Logs (EOBR)".
In addition, the HD100 provides fully compliant Vehicle Inspection reports, that satisfy the requirements of FMCSA's Regulations, Part 49 CFR, 396.11 and 396.13.
The HD100 connects to the ECM unit in your truck by way of the Truck's diagnostic port, which is usually under the dash on the left side of the steering wheel. Most of the newer trucks have a 9-pin round Deutsch connector, which is included with your HD100. Many trucks use a 6-pin Deutsch connector, which you will have to purchase, if needed. There are also Trucks using the ODB and ODB II connectors, as well as older trucks (pre 1995) that have proprietary connectors and some, that do not have a port and will need to be hardwired. Don't be surprised if this EOBR mandate is problematic. Following is a quote from Wikipedia.
J1587 is an automotive diagnostic protocol standard developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) for heavy-duty and most medium-duty vehicles built after 1985. The J1587 protocol uses different diagnostic connectors. Up to 1995, individual OEMs used their own connectors. From 1996 to 2001, the 6-pin Deutsch-connector was standard. Beginning in 2001, most OEMs converted to the 9-pin Deutsch. Some OEMs still use the 6-pin Deutsch. It has mostly been used for US made vehicles, and also by Volvo. Other European brands have usually used KWP. Source: en/Wikipedia.org/wiki/SAE_J1587
Just a note for clarity. You may hear of protocols like J1587, J1708, J1922 and J1939. These are standards for communication, developed by SAE, the Society of Automotive Engineers. You do not need to know or understand these. In most cases, you just need to determine the type of plug you have on your Truck Diagnostic Port and match it to your EOBR accordingly.
The HD100 also communicates with the Rand McNally web portal via a cellular connection. The HD100 sends HOS logs and Vehicle Inspection reports, as well as other data, to be stored on the Rand McNally Server. In the event that you lose cellular reception, the HD100 stores the data until cell reception is resumed, then send the data to the server.
Last, the HD100 communicates with the TND720/TND730 GPS via a Wi-Fi connection. Basically the 720/730 is the screen for the HD100 EOBR.
Lets recap for clarity. The HD100 communicates with the following:
Truck ECM unit via the onboard Diagnostic port, using a plug in connector.
The Rand McNally Web Portal using a cellular service.
The TND720/TND730 GPS, using wireless Wi-Fi.
Installation takes about 10 minutes. First, download the Rand McNally Dock software and run.

Lastly, run through the diagnostics to make sure all is well. You're Done and ready to go.NOTE : The HD100 will not work with the TND520, not the TND530.
