The regulations of the EU Mobility Package 1 require new control devices, the so-called 2nd version of the smart tachograph. The DTCO 4.1 fully complies with these legal requirements while retaining the familiar operating concept, so drivers hardly have to get used to anything new. For vehicles traveling internationally, this device eliminates the previous stop when crossing borders because the DTCO 4.1 automatically registers the border crossing.
The new tachograph must be installed in all newly registered vehicles over 3.5 t by August 21, 2023 at the latest. By July 2026, all commercial vehicles over 2.5 t that carry out international transports must then be equipped with the devices.CLICK HERE FOR THE PARTNER FINDER
