Introduced by Honeywell in March 2015, the VM3 is a full-size vehicle-mount computer with a 12.1-inch XGA touch display and a number of multi-function keys. Depending on the intended application, the Intel Bay Trail-powered Thor can be operated with either standard or embedded versions of full Windows or with the small footprint Windows Embedded Compact 7. The VM3, the latest in a long sequence of vehicle-mount computer generation, is a close cousin to the company’s Thor VM1 and VM2, but without an integrated keyboard and with a larger display.

Smart Dock – Lets you mount and remove the VM3 in seconds, saving on support and maintenance costs while maximizing efficiency.

Field Replaceable Panel – Reduces maintenance cost by allowing you to service the most wear- and abuse-prone components yourself.

Ignition Control – Eliminates the maintenance expense and lost productivity caused by a dead vehicle battery.

Powerful, Versatile Platform – The Intel® x86 architecture and Dual Core 1.5GHz processor enable superior performance with data-intensive applications.

Simple Integration and Deployment – Supports multiple Microsoft® Windows®-based operating systems, so integration and application development are simple.

O/S Upgrade Path – Upgradeable for customers who need backward compatibility with their Windows® CE installed base now, but want to upgrade in the future.
