On this page we want to introduce you to the Rand McNally Truck GPS products and how we have integrated them into My Fuel Tax GPS.
The Rand McNally Truck GPS series is a very good solution for owner/operators and small fleet owners who would like more benefits from their GPS but didn’t think it was really affordable.
Key benefits include:
The Import for Rand McNally Truck GPS is done using the Data Wizard button.
When you click it, the data wizard comes up:
You click on the “Import Miles and Fuel in State for unit: My Unit1” button, and you find your Rand McNally Truck GPS summary file for the quarter you specified in the “Choose a Quarter” box.
The Rand McNally Truck GPS creates Excel files that look like this:
You click “Open” when you selected the file you need, and the import is executed. When it’s done you get this message box:
After you click “OK”, please note the there is an “X” mark next to “Unit1” in the list on the left. this means that import for this unit was already done. If you have more units you click on those, and repeat the other steps with the summary file that was created for those units.
Now we click on “Manual Data Entry” to check the results:
Please note that:
That’s all there is to it. After you entered/checked all your data, you can close this dialog, close the wizard, and click on IFTA Report to run the IFTA report, save it, and then Print it to the Form for your jurisdiction.
The Rand McNally is not a true fleet-oriented GPS system with office equipment for fleet tracking, etc. All IFTA reporting using these GPS units are “per truck” reports and not single reports for your entire fleet.
