Remote Tacho Downloader

It is a legal requirement for commercial vehicles over 3.5 tonnes to be fitted with a tachograph. The digital tachograph is a radio-sized device that records vehicle and driver data. For instance, it records data on speed, driving time, journey distance and driver’s activity stored in the driver cards or vehicle unit memory. Read on to find out what tacho card downloaders are and their benefits.

What Is the Importance of a Digital Tacho Downloader?

In 2019, smart digital tachographs were introduced for commercial vehicles since they have GPS modules for recording a car’s location and targeting processes. With smart tachographs, traffic examiners and fleet managers can remotely access information.

While smart and digital tachographs have numerous benefits, the major downside is the inability to access the data without retrieving the driver’s card. The driver has to upload their data to the fleet management system from the vehicle unit installed in the truck. That means the data is not in real time and can encounter compliance issues.

What Is a Remote Tachograph Download?

A remote tachograph downloader can remotely download data in real time without the driver manually uploading the tachograph data from the card. The tachograph download integrates the data and the fleet software to ensure commercial vehicle managers have actionable driver performance insights.

How to Download Digital Tachograph Vehicle Unit

A smart tachograph downloads data automatically, but manual downloads use the following steps:

  • Switch on the vehicle’s ignition and insert the driver’s card into the vehicle unit.
  • Connecting the digifobpro-v2 to the vehicle unit shows the download options and the arrows for turning on download selections.
  • When the download is complete, it will be indicated with a tick.


A tacho downloader is useful in assisting the fleet manager in getting real-time data and dealing with compliance issues. The automatic download options simplify the integration with tachograph analysis.
