Recording of Location at Border Crossing

Under current legislation, from 2nd February 2022 the driver shall enter the symbol of the country into which he enters after crossing the border of a Member State at the beginning of his first stop in that Member State. The first stop shall be made at or after the stopping point as close as possible to the border. When crossing the border of a Member State by ferry or train, the driver shall enter the symbol of the country in the port or at the station of arrival.

On the latest generation Stoneridge smart tachographs (SE5000-8 Rev. G), when crossing the border, after stopping the vehicle, the country of entry will be suggested on the tachograph display. The driver will only have to confirm that it is correct by pressing the ‘OK’ button.

On all other Stoneridge tachographs, on the other hand, the selection must be made manually following the steps below distinguishing the tachographs according to the year of manufacture or the keys present.

For digital tachographs manufactured from 2010 onwards (SE5000 rev.7 and SE5000-8) press the ‘OK’ button and search with arrows for the ‘Places’ menu.

Press the ‘OK’ button and look for the ‘Start Place’ menu.

At this point you will find the list of all the available countries, select the one you entered, in the example below Albania and press ‘OK’.

Press the ‘back’ button 2 times to return to the main menu.

For digital tachographs manufactured until 2010 (SE5000 rev. 6), they are easily recognized because there is no ‘OK’ key but the ‘Enter’ key. Press the ‘Enter’ key and search with the arrows for the ‘Begin Place’ menu.

Press ‘Enter’ and select from the list the country you entered, in the example below United Kingdom, and press ‘Enter’ again.

Press the ‘back’ button 2 times to return to the main menu.
