We are excited to announce the availability of GeoTach by Evestel on the Geotab Marketplace at the Commercial Vehicle show.

Geotab is looking forward to the Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham from April 30 to May 2. In addition to demonstrating our EV solutions, we will also be revealing our recently announced GeoTach solution: a remote downloading system for tachographs.

Introducing GeoTach by Evestel

Starting on June 15, 2019 in the EU, updated regulations will make it illegal to have a vehicle older than 2006 in use without a digital tachograph. A digital tachograph is a device for road transport that records data on driving and duty, in addition to other details.


Most digital tachographs still have not been integrated with fleet telematics solution, leading to disconnected systems and siloed data. However, this is a problem we can help our customers solve with the launch of GeoTach by Evestel.


GeoTach is a Remote Data Downloading (RDD) system for digital tachographs and makes it effortless for fleets to remotely manage tachograph data. The GeoTach solution is officially available through the Geotab Marketplace.

GeoTach by Evestel is compatible with all digital tachograph brands and greatly simplifies compliance with new regulations. The use of RDD systems eliminates the need for time-consuming periodic manual downloads. GeoTach is a complete solution for helping fleets automate the way they manage vehicle and driver data.

Geotab’s EV expertise

Alongside GeoTach, we will also be showcasing our leading electric vehicle (EV) expertise. As the move to zero-emissions gains traction both regionally and at the federal level in the UK, fleet adoption of electric vehicles is on a sharp upward curve.

For our customers, EVs offer opportunities to go green and reduce long-term emissions. They also bring a wave of new challenges. With over 1 million connected vehicles on the road, Geotab is helping businesses develop their own electrification strategies.


In addition to offering EV compatibility through the Geotab GO device, we use data to navigate different electrification challenges. This can take the form of optimising electric range through fuel efficiency measurement, reporting on charging activities, or using real-time information to help managers make decisions about their fleets. Wherever your business is on its electrification journey, the CV Show is a great time to meet our team of experts and learn about the role of telematics in your transition to EVs.
