Dundee, Scotland, 2012/12/21 - Stoneridge Electronics is pleased to announce the release of two apps, bringing the benefits of its new Duo technology and wireless downloading to Android smartphone users - SE5000Exakt.com.
With Duo Mobile drivers can now benefit from Stoneridge’s new Duo technology, already coming as standard and at no extra cost with all SE5000 Exakt Duo digital tachographs, on their smartphone. Created to make life easier for drivers and help keep them legal, Duo Mobile turns your smartphone into a second Duo display, providing a real time overview of daily, weekly and monthly drive, break and rest times. Automatic countdowns to break or daily rest periods will help drivers plan their journey ahead, ultimately making fleets more efficient.
The second of Stoneridge’s free apps is Tacho Center, enabling drivers to download digital tachograph data wirelessly from any EU Type Approved digital tachograph. Drivers can choose between a full download and the most recent data which they can either email to a PC or send straight to Stoneridge’s OPTAC3 analysis software. Tacho Center also reminds drivers when data is due for download. This not only takes the hassle out of downloading data via cables but also helps fleets keep track of when driver card and vehicle unit data was last downloaded.
Both apps are available for free on Google Play and are used in conjunction with Stoneridge’s Tacho Link dongle*, which enables your digital tachograph to connect with your Android phone via Bluetooth.
