THE SMART TACHOGRAPH IS ON THE WAY

What Fleetmanagers have to consider

The legislator wants that all trucks, which are registered at or after the 15th June, are equipped with a new, so-called smart tachograph. Those tachographs facilitate a precise determination of position as well as a simplified suspicion control of the driving vehicle. Learn here, how to prepare your business and work on after the deadline.

THE SMART TACHOGRAPH IS ON THE WAY
Update your fleet

Update your fleet

The new tachograph hasn’t only new hardware but also a new cryptographic technique. Therefore, the download tools for your fleet need to be brought up to date. This is the only way to make sure that you are able to read, archive and save your driver and vehicle data according to the law. And by the way: Investments in hardware and software for digital EG control devices get subisidised with country specific incentives e.g. Deminimis in Germany.

Easy updating Here you can see everything you have to consider

For your DLK Pro and DLK TIS-Compact Keys you just need a License Card. 
Older keys of 1st and 2nd generation are not able to download and archive data from DTCO 4.0. User of these download tools should therefore change to actual models, to fullfill the leqal requirements optimally. With the DLK Pro S and DLK PRO TIS-Compact S We offer you from May 2019 onwards the very latest  Downloadkeys.

To seemless use your Download Terminal DLT Pro also in future , please donwload and install the update from following web adress: https://www.fleet.vdo.com/meta-navigation/downloads/#softwareupdates. After successful update your DLT Pro is able to archive and show the DTCO 4.0 data. Please consider that all older Downloadterminal models (Downloadterminal and DLT II) must be replaced by a DLT Pro, because those older models don't support DTCO 4.0.

Your DLD Short and Wide Range II update themselves via OTA-Update (Over-the-air) all by itself.

Professional Fleet Management Software like TIS Web® Motion or VDO FleetVisor will also be able to work with DTCO 4.0 data. Users of TIS-Web® Datamanagement 4.9 should change to version DMM 5.0. To do this please get in touch directly with us or an authorised dealer. Contact us directly or your national dealer. 

Stay up to date.
