TachoDrive devices update for 1C tachographs

Smart tachographs are a new generation of digital tachographs that improve the enforcement of EU legislation on driving and rest times for professional drivers. These devices must be installed in vehicles registered after June 15, 2019. By the intelligent tachograph system, we mean recording devices, tachograph cards and a set of all devices that interact directly or indirectly during their construction, installation, use, testing and control.

The update for TachoDrive devices according to Annex 1C allows you to download data from smart tachographs and G2 driver cards.
