Sign in to queue


Motorola has just introduced a new dash-mounted mobile computer, the VC6096. Running Windows Mobile 6, this computer is designed specifically for work-related applications like those used for fleet management or vehicle tracking systems, for example. Another use for the device would be in emergency and police vehicles. Currently, the systems used in those vehicles tend to run Windows XP, XP Embedded, or Windows CE.

With its wireless LAN (WLAN) capabilities, the device can be easily integrated with a company’s existing WLAN for real-time visibility of the vehicle. In addition, its 3.5 G GSM HSDPA WWAN allows for simultaneous voice and data and the bandwidth to support even data-intensive applications. Because of the VC6096’s open platform, any number of applications can be installed on the device to support whatever your business needs.

Here are the full specs:

The new VC606 device is 9.53" x 9.25" x 1.95" with a 6.5" VGA touchscreen. It can be connected to an SAE J1708 or SAE J1939 telematics bus to work in tandem with fleet management or vehicle tracking systems, and has a SiRFstarIII GsC3ef/LP GPS chipset, GSM HSDPA, 802.11 a/b/g, and Bluetooth 2.0. Its wireless LAN supports WPA2, WEP (40 or 128 bit), TKIP, TLS, TTLS (MS-CHAP), TTLS (MS-CHAP v2), TTLS (CHAP), TTLS-MD5, TTLS-PAP, PEAP-TLS, PEAP (MS-CHAP v2), AES, and LEAP.
