Description.....

The Cardreader downloader is a compact easy to use, mobile lightweight device for the downloading of Driver Card data and Vehicle Unit data ready for sending to GAYNEMORE for analysis and archiving.

digital tacho card downloader On the front of the reader below the black screen are four buttons.
From the left.......
Button 1 . Press to start download from Driver Card.
Button 2 . Press to perform PARTIAL Vehicle Unit download.
Button 3 . Press to perform FULL Vehicle Unit download.
Button 4 . On or Off

The connector for the Vehicle Unit download cable is on the lefthand side of the reader.
The USB port used to transfer downloaded data from the reader to your PC is on the righthand side.

The Cardreader downloader has sufficient memory to hold approx 500 Driver Cards worth of data or approx 50 FULL Vehicle Units worth of data.

Do not use the reader as a storage or archive medium, only use the reader for the movement of the data from either Driver Card or Vehicle Unit to your PC for forwarding to GAYNEMORE.

Getting started.....

Fit the batteries and test by pressing on off button until reader beeps.
There should be a green light flashing on the screen just above the on off button.
To switch off, press on off button until reader beeps.

Download Driver Card data into reader.....

Press & hold button 4 until reader beeps to switch on.
Insert Driver Card.
If the card is inserted incorrectly, after a couple of seconds, the green light turns red and the reader will beep.
Briefly press button 1.
The single flashing light now becomes a series of flashing green lights pulsating from right to left at the bottom of the screen.
When the download of data from that card is complete the single flashing light returns and the reader beeps.
On average it takes around 90 seconds to download the data files for each Driver Card.
Repeat the process for each Driver Card.
Carry out this data download process for digital driver cards at least every 28 days.

Download Vehicle Unit data into reader.....

Please make sure that the company card is in the first slot of the digital tachograph.
Switch on the reader.
Use grey cable with black connectors.
Insert the rectangular connector into the correct socket on the Vehicle Unit.
Plug the other end into the round socket on the lefthand side of the reader.
If you want to download ALL data from the Vehicle Unit press button 3, flashing lights appear again until download completed, when single flashing light above the on off switch appears the download is finished for that vehicle.
If you want a PARTIAL download press button 2 instead of button 3.
Unplug from Vehicle Unit and move to next vehicle.
When all vehicles downloaded unplug cable from reader, switch off the reader and keep the cable in a safe place.
Carry out this data download process for vehicle units at least every 90 days.

For the first download of data use button 3 FULL download.
For subsequent downloads use button 2 PARTIAL download. The Vehicle Unit remembers when the last download was performed and will only download fresh data accumulated since the last download. This prevents sending us duplicate data.

Transfer data files to PC.....

Skip this step UNLESS you wish to keep copies of the data files on your PC.
Create a folder for each driver.
Create a folder for each vehicle.
Open WINDOWS EXPLORER then...
Use the USB cable supplied to connect the reader to you PC.
Windows will recognise the reader and show it as a new hard drive or a mass storage device in the lefthand window.
Click on this new device and the contents of the reader, the data files you have just downloaded to it, will appear in the righthand window. On some versions of the downloader device a Folder named with Date of download will be present. Just click on the folder as you would normally to see its contents.
If these files are Driver Card downloads the file name will contain the name of the driver.
Drag and drop the individual driver file to the previously created folder for that driver.
Repeat for each driver.
If these files are Vehicle Unit downloads the file name will contain the registration number of the vehicle.
Drag and drop the individual vehicle file to the previously created folder for that vehicle.
Repeat for each vehicle.

BEFORE you send ANY data files to GAYNEMORE via EMAIL for the FIRST TIME.....
Please send a list of ALL drivers names AS THEY APPEAR ON THE DRIVER CARD.

Send data files to GAYNEMORE via EMAIL.....

Open WINDOWS EXPLORER.
With the cardreader switched on........
Use the USB cable supplied to connect the reader to you PC.
Windows will recognise the reader and show it as a new hard drive or a mass storage device in the lefthand window.
Open your email client.
Create new message.
Navigate to and attach each individual data file to email and send.
Send to graham at tachos dot net
In the subject line YOU MUST enter company name and depot, For example if your company is G S and V E MORGAN TRANSPORT CO LTD and your depot is in Burton upon Trent then you would enter : MORGAN Burton digital tachograph files.
It is vital you do it in this way to allow the email and attachment to pass our security checks on incoming emails.
Otherwise the email & attachment WILL be deleted before we see it.
Please note that an Internet Service Provider will often impose an attachment file size limit.

Send data files to GAYNEMORE via memory stick.....

Open WINDOWS EXPLORER.
Use the USB cable supplied to connect the reader to you PC.
Windows will recognise the reader and show it as a new hard drive or a mass storage device in the lefthand window.
Click it, contents of reader will appear in righthand window. On some versions of the downloader device a Folder named with Date of download will be present. Just click on the folder as you would normally to see its contents.
Plug in memory stick.
Windows will recognise the memory stick and show it as a new hard drive or a mass storage device in the lefthand window.
Drag and drop the files to the memory stick and post it, with a compliment slip, to :

GAYNEMORE
49 Beaconsfield Road
Burton upon Trent
Staffordshire
DE13 0NT

However we receive the data we will analyse that data and send you the reports.

Cardreader downloader internal memory.....
The reader will hold the download files in memory, so to prevent sending us duplicate files, it is a good idea to delete any DATA FILES ONLY in its memory just before performing a download.
Simply open Windows Explorer, switch the reader on, connect to the USB port, click on the reader in the lefthand window and delete the DATA FILES & FOLDERS with dates as their name only - NOT THE CONFIG.DAT FILE, or other files that appear in the righthand window.
That clears what was in the reader memory so you know that any files appearing after download are fresh and are ok to send us.
