New Release with all reporting in local time (31.8.2016)
Despite the fact that all events of the digital tachograph are stored in UTC (Universal Time Coordinated), many customers still request to get the times in the reports displayed in local time. With the new release this will be possible now. The configuration to display in either UTC or local time is done in the company set up parameters. Please contact your servicepartner/support, who will change the configuration parameter for you.
