Motorola VC6096 brings Windows Mobile to in-vehicle mobile computer
The Enterprise Mobility business from Motorola, Inc. has announced the new VC6096 in-vehicle/fixed mount mobile computer – a rugged all-in-one solution designed to withstand the rigors of everyday use on the road, including wireless voice and data capabilities for transportation and logistics providers.

The VC6096 in-vehicle/fixed mount mobile computer enables the collection of business-essential data – including mileage, location, driver performance and vehicle metrics such as hours of service and arrival and departure times.

With integrated GPS, the VC6096 provides the asset visibility needed to support real-time location-based applications from directions for drivers to fleet location for dispatchers. By providing mobile workers with simultaneous voice and data connections via 3.5G WAN connectivity on the GSM network, enterprises can now realize increased productivity and enhanced customer service as a result of route optimization—reducing the number of miles traveled while helping to ensure customers receive deliveries on schedule.

“The VC6096 improves the efficiency of mobile workers on the road with real-time connectivity and instant communication – when and where they need it,” said Brian Viscount, vice president of mobile computing, Motorola’s Enterprise Mobility business. “By enabling organizations to more quickly, easily and accurately capture relevant driver and vehicle data, enterprises will reduce paperwork and increase efficiency by automating the driver logs, time cards, and highway fuel tax reports.”

The new VC6096 also improves the safety and lifecycle of vehicle fleets with integrated SAE J1708 and SAE J1939 telematics support. Transportation customers are now armed with the tools for automatic monitoring and collection of engine operation information – providing dispatchers with visibility into engine error codes to improve overall maintenance, driver productivity, and vehicle utilization.

Based on a XScale PXA270 CPU running at 624 MHz, the VC6096 comes with 128MB RAM and 256MB flash memory for storage, with a SD slot for up 2 GB expansion. The device runs Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Edition.
