PRODUCT SPEC SHEET Motorola VC6096 Motorola VC6096 WWAN In-Vehicle/Fixed Mount Mobile Computer Get the most out of your drivers and your vehicles with Motorola’s VC6096 The VC6096 In-Vehicle/Fixed-Mount Mobile Computer is an all-in-one in-cab solution designed to help transportation and logistics providers achieve costeffective compliance, maximize driver productivity, improve safety and vehicle utilization, reduce costs and improve customer service. Designed to handle Less Than Truckload (LTL), Truck Load (TL) and Over the Road (OTR) operations, the device is built to handle the rigors of the road while delivering the comprehensive wireless voice and data capabilities you need to maximize operational efficiency — including simultaneous wireless WAN (WWAN), wireless LAN (WLAN), Bluetooth, GPS and telematics support. Built for the road The VC6096 is built from the inside out to handle life on the road. With IP64 sealing, the device is impervious to dust and can handle exposure to liquid from any direction — from rain to a spilled beverage. Military and industrial grade specifications for vibration, shock, solar radiation and more ensure reliable operation despite constant exposure to outdoor environmental conditions as well as vehicle movement. The result is the superior uptime you need to keep your drivers — and your business — moving. An open extensible solution Instead of a proprietary point-solution, the industry standards-based VC6096 gives you the power of choice — you can choose the hardware, peripherals and applications that best suit your unique enterprise requirements. A true platform for comprehensive fleet management, the VC6096 enables the collection of a wealth of real-time data — from mileage, location, driver performance, and vehicle metrics to hours of service and arrival and departure times — as well as the ability to deploy applications that will maximize that data. Regardless of whether you or a third party independent software vendor develops your application or whether you choose existing software applications, you’re in charge of your own data — you control where and how your information is stored and can drive new functionality as required — all without the traditional monthly fees per vehicle. In addition, integrated Bluetooth allows enterprises to add peripherals as needed. For example, a handheld mobile computer can provide drivers involved in direct store delivery (DSD), route accounting and more with bar code scanning to automate and error-proof on the spot order reconciliation, electronic signature capture for proof of delivery and credit and debit card processing for instant payment.

Compatibility with the 3.5G GSM HSDPA WWAN networks provides simultaneous voice and data services — and the bandwidth required for the most processing intensive applications. And the Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g radios enable the easy connection to any available WLAN, providing cost-effective wireless voice and data communications when drivers are inside the enterprise campus or hotspots. Achieve cost-effective compliance, increase driver productivity and improve customer service with best-in-class GPS functionality Do you know where your trucks are? With integrated GPS, you will. Chosen for its superior sensitivity and tracking capabilities, the high performance SiRFstarIII GSC3f/LP chipset provides the real-time asset visibility needed to support a multitude of real-time location based applications, from directions for drivers to realtime fleet location for dispatchers. The chipset delivers expanded coverage for GPS applications by enabling the rapid and highly accurate capture of signals in some of the most challenging environments, including urban canyons and areas where foliage is very dense. Data is quickly, easily and accurately captured as drivers travel the roads, enabling enterprises to automate completion of driver logs, time cards, highway fuel tax reports and more. The reduction in paperwork enables drivers to cover more miles, make more stops and reduce your internal administrative burden — paperwork completed by hand no longer requires entry into your computer systems. And the real-time visibility into the location of your vehicles enables route optimization and dynamic routing, reducing the number of miles traveled while ensuring that customers receive deliveries on time, every time. And whether drivers need turn-by-turn directions to the next stop or an alternate route to avoid a traffic jam due to an accident or roadwork, the high resolution color VGA resistive touchscreen enables the display of highly accurate interactive detailed route maps to keep drivers moving and on schedule. Improve safety and the lifecycle of your vehicle fleet with telematics support The VC6096 offers integrated telematics support, allowing enterprises to automatically monitor and collect information related to the operation of vehicle engines. This data provides dispatchers with visibility into the driving habits of individual drivers as well as vehicle health. Visibility into engine error codes enables proactive maintenance to protect driver productivity and vehicle utilization. Operators with heavy braking habits can be counseled on the safety issues associated with tailgating in the many-ton vehicles as well as the unnecessary wear and tear on brakes. Visibility into excessive revolutions per minute (RPMs) helps dispatch spot inefficient vehicle use — a practice that not only increases fuel consumption but also engine wear and tear. The result is the power to not only protect, but also improve the lifecycle of one of your most expensive assets — your vehicles. Reduce fuel costs Simultaneous support for GPS and telematics applications provides the information you need to minimize mileage as well as ensure that the driving habits of your workers minimize fuel usage. As a result, the VC6096 becomes an important cost-containment tool — especially crucial with diesel fuel costs at an historical high. Enable cost-effective collection of data for temperature sensitive loads Support for analog input allows you to track and record the temperature of a refrigerated load as well as the fuel levels in the refrigeration unit. As a result, without requiring any effort on the part of your drivers, you can provide proof that loads remained within acceptable temperature levels throughout transport. Drivers can receive real-time alerts if refrigerator fuel levels or refrigerator temperatures are reaching pre-set thresholds to enable proactive steps to prevent spoilage. Required data in the food transport industry is collected easily and cost-effectively; the safety of the food supply chain is improved; and the potential liability associated with spoilage is significantly reduced. Rich voice communications Since the VC6096 enables drivers to place and receive phone calls, your drivers are always connected to dispatchers and are never more than seconds away. The integrated internal speaker and microphone combines with Bluetooth to allow drivers to choose their preferred hands-free voice mode: a wireless Bluetooth headset or speakerphone. Easy to use When you put the VC6096 inside the cabs of your trucks, you give your drivers easy-to-use technology that virtually eliminates the need for training. The large 6.5 inch VGA display is easy to see in practically any lighting condition — from total darkness to bright sunlight, even when viewed through polarized sunglasses. The touchscreen display enables easy data input — even with gloved hands. Microsoft® Windows® Mobile provides a familiar interface as well as compatibility with many of today’s mobile applications. And programmable soft keys can provide single-key simplicity for frequently repeated tasks. Reduce the cost and complexity of mobility Integrated voice and data simplifies life for your drivers...and your IT staff. Your drivers enjoy an all-inone office in a single device — no need to purchase a cell phone for voice, a mobile computer to automate data collection, GPS for location-based services and a telematics solution to capture vehicle performance metrics. Fewer devices to purchase, support and manage frees IT staff to focus on more critical business initiatives, while reducing your capital and operational expenditures.
