There is a green LED on the TachoDrive key while downloading the data from the tachograph while the tachograph displays - Transmission Error. Error 12. - message. What is the problem?

  • the user is trying to download data including days that the tachograph did not record any activities. One should confirm the message on the tachograph and wait until the data download is finished;
  • a given tachograph model does not support the fastest possible data download speed, so called TURBO mode. One should do the following:
    • download the TD COnfigurator in version or higher from the "Download" section
    • using the TD COnfigurator, update the key firmware to the following version:
      • min. 2.79 for TachoDrive and TachoDrive PLUS,
      • min. 3.00 for TachoDrive2
      • min. 1.24 for TachoDrive3
    • additionaly turn the "TURBO mode" off in the configuration window of TachoDrive and TachoDrive PLUS;

WARNING! Turning the Turbo mode off in TachoDrive and TachoDrive PLUS will disable this function even for tachographs that do support such function and therefore will increase the data download time. The updated TD2 and TD3 devices will automaticaly switch between TURBO and normal mode depending on the tachograph type.

  • while downloading data, an error appears on the tachograph and TachoDrive signals the download error. In such case, one should check the type of error in the codes table and remove its cause.

 The displayed "Transmission error 12" message on the tachograph can be eliminated by confirming it with the OK button on the tachograph.
