Since 2006, there has been a legal obligation to install a digital tachograph in trucks to read the data regularly. With our truck tracking system, the data is transmitted fully automatically, so you don't have to worry about anything. To read the digital tachograph remotely via geoCapture, the FM63 truck tracker is connected to the tachograph via an adapter. GeoCapture ensures that the tachograph and driver card data are transferred on time and archived in accordance with legal requirements.
Since the obligation for the digital tachograph was passed, the observance of the legal driving times is also subject to stronger controls. Even the smallest infringements are punished and remain stored on the driver card for several months. That's why you should rely on geoCapture, because the GPS transmitter in the truck allows you to easily track and calculate driving and rest times. So you are always informed when your driver has to take the next break. Driving times can be reliably planned via route planning. You avoid driving time violations and unnecessary penalties.
Using TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) and geoCapture's truck tracking system, the tire pressure of all the truck's wheels is constantly monitored. The data is transmitted via sensors to a control unit in the driver's cab. The GPS transmitter transmits the data to the geoCapture portal. TPMS has many advantages, such as saving fuel, extending tire life and increasing safety.
The FM63 truck tracker gives you direct access to the vehicle's Garmin navigation device. This allows you to send work orders or messages directly to the driver. In addition to the current vehicle position, geoCapture also shows the current destination of the vehicle with the planned arrival time. As we are an official partner of Garmin, we also provide you with suitable Garmin navigation devices for cars or trucks.
With the FMS standard, the leading truck manufacturers have agreed on a uniform interface for the transmission of telemetry data to positioning systems. With the FM63, these data are also transmitted to geoCapture. Please check in advance whether your truck has installed this interface. If this is not the case, there is the possibility of retrofitting - also via third-party manufacturers.
We are looking forward to your inquiry!
