RoadLog installation kit

Continental’s VDO unit has expanded its RoadLog installation kit portfolio with a new line of 9-pin green installation kits. It increases the capability of the RoadLog ELD program to run a single platform in mixed fleets with plug-and-play convenience.

The kits support 2015 and newer trucks that utilize 9-pin type II (green) Deutsch diagnostic ports, as well as pre-2015 9-pin type I (black) Deutsch diagnostic ports. The new green connectors are available as a direct connection or as a Y-cable configuration that leaves an open diagnostic port and cleanly installs into the truck cab.

VDO RoadLog is one of the first stand-alone ELDs offered in North America, providing an affordable, easy to use, plug-and-play solution for compliance reporting. It combines GPS data with input from the vehicle to create a digital log that the driver can either download or print out as needed. It’s available as a stand-alone unit without monthly fees and as a connectivity package with affordable monthly plans.
