TREQ(R) in-cab computer expands XATANET's hardware flexibility and future operability.

MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 26 /- XATA Corporation (NASDAQ:XATA), a leader in fleet optimization software and services, today announced the immediate availability of the TREQ color display unit (CDU), a new in-cab touch-screen computer that drivers can use for easier logging and communication. The TREQ is available as a display option for new XATA customers, as an upgrade for existing users of the company's XATANET product and is compatible with XATA's MobileMax and XATANET systems.

The 7-inch, Windows CE(R)-based color display features a high-resolution graphical interface that allows drivers to input data via an easy-to-use touch screen. The TREQ units incorporate several new technologies that pave the way for enhanced functionality, such as navigation, onboard training, improved graphics and enhanced driver communications. The TREQ was developed and is manufactured by Salt Lake City-based QSI Corporation.

"Adding the TREQ to XATANET's list of supported hardware is proof of our architecture's flexibility," said Tom Flies, senior vice president of product strategy, XATA Corporation. "The new display makes it easier for drivers to read and use, and it provides an expandable solution for future applications and in-cab functionality for private and for-hire fleets."

"The TREQ device will add significant value to the XATANET product offering," said Jim Elwell, QSI Corporation's Chief Technology Officer. "With our technology and XATA's flexible software platform, they can enable the TREQ device to run newly developed fleet management applications that benefit fleet managers and drivers."

The new CDU incorporates several technologies that optimize its use in mobile applications, including a Thin Film Transistor (TFT) Transflective Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) designed to operate in harsh environments and optimize performance in a wide range of in-cab lighting conditions.

XATA is also shipping an upgraded version of its MicroDisplay. This new version offers a brighter, side-lit screen for better in-cab visibility, a more robust case and an extended temperature operating range.
