How it works

  • Connects to the digital tachograph rear panel CAN2 connector, or
  • Connects to the digital tachograph front panel socket with a low-profile connector.
  • Connects to standard serial data, K-line, USB, Bluetooth or wireless LAN on the on-board computer.
  • The on-board computer only needs to handle simple strings to/from the DigidownT unit (and pass them to a server during remote authentication) and then receive the files of downloaded data.
  • No need to handle complicated authentication or download protocols.
  • Files are saved in the DigidownT (in the correct .ddd, .tgd or .v1b format) until the telematics system is ready to upload to wherever the data needs to be.
