Generation 2 tachographs – what to do with it?
- Older programs like Tachograph driver card software 1.4 / 2 / TDCS3 cannot read the 2nd generation driver card and tachograph. You need to purchase an “Upgrade” to the new CarTracker Digital program. Prices vary according to the previous version and the new program version, starting from: € 95.00. Ask your dealer or our technical support.
- Program CarTracker purchased before 1.7.2019 version number 1.1.xxxx does not have module for 2nd generation tachographs. It is necessary to download a new version starting with 1.2.xxxx – either directly from the program (Main Menu -> Update) or from this web section Support. To complete the re-registration of CarTracker for the 2nd generation, you must obtain a new license number, the fee starts from CarTracker 8Driver Edition in the amount of 25.00 EUR.
