This makes it a perfect scene for the implementation of remote data download and monitoring solution.

In addition to this, distribution companies in the European markets are regulated by special organization that require to present graphics from digital tachometer every month and in a correct form. Usually, companies download graphics by physically getting to the vehicles and directly connecting to tachometer.

First of all, it is time taken. Second, the administration process is complicated. Third, it is not always possible. For example, your office is in Austria and your truck is dispatched to Spain for three months. In this scenario, you will not be able to get the files on time. It might not be a problem if you have just several vehicles, but it becomes a serious point in case you have to manage hundreds of them.
