They have designed a common interface as an open standard which will be supported by these leading truck manufacturers.
The FMS-interface is an optional interface of different truck manufacturers. Supported information is dependent upon vehicle equipment. For the full information set, additional Electronic Control Units (ECU) may be required. Please contact the manufacturer or your dealer.
Please note that a direct connection to the vehicles’ internal bus system might affect vehicle reliability (as well as warranty).
