Smartdownload enables driver card and vehicle unit (VU) data to be downloaded direct from your vehicles' VDO tachograph into Smartanalysis, saving time and helping to ensure compliance with digital tachograph legislation.  The kit includes a VDO DLD remote download device, and a SIM card and all GRPS network data charges for 12 months.

The DLD remote download device can only be fitted to a VDO1.3+ tachograph.

Free delivery of hardware in the UK.

Installation can be arranged through the Descartes Service Desk, contact servicedesk@descartes.com for further information.

With Smartdownload you can setup the schedule for download of both the Driver Card and the Vehicle Unit. All of this is handled in the background and files will be passed straight to Smartanalysis.

Smartdownload allows you to hold the Company Card(s) in your office. The card is placed permanently in a card reader on any PC which has a connection to the Internet.

The DLD remote download device installed in your vehicle makes a connection via GPRS to the Internet and in turn to your Company Card(s). The process authenticates as if the Company Card were in the vehicle. The DLD device can now perform a download from your VDO tachograph and pass the file(s) to Smartanalysis via the GPRS network.

The DLD remote download device can only be fitted to a VDO1.3+ tachograph.
