The VDO Driver app in combination with DTCO® SmartLink Pro ensures that drivers can always keep an eye on their driving and rest periods.


The TIS-Web® Fleet app provides the interface between the fleet office and drivers. Installed on drivers’ smartphones, it receives tachograph data via DTCO® SmartLink and sends vehicle, driver and position data, as well as information entered manually by the driver, to TIS-Web®.

By using the DTCO® Configuration App, you as fleet manager have the opportunity, to configure the digital tachograph from release DTCO® 3.0 on your own.  Saving valuable downtime, as the DTCO® configuration in a new truck takes only a few minutes.
