How to change time on a Digital Tachograph – Siemens VDO


This tutorial covers how to change Local Time
on the Siemens VDO Continental Digital Tachograph. On the display screen time is shown on
the top left corner. The time displayed can be changed to account
for Daylight Saving Time. To change time in the settings menu press
the ‘OK’ Key to access the menu and then press the down key five times to reach the Entry
Vehicle option and press ‘OK’. Press the down key two more times to reach
the ‘Local Time’ option and press ‘OK’. Here the UTC Time is displayed on the left
and the Local Time setting is displayed on the right. When Local Time is changed, the Local Time
symbol, which is a thick black dot, will appear beside the time on the main display screen
to indicate that it is Local Time and not UTC Time. We can change the Local Time forward or backward using the Up and Down keys in increments of
30 minutes to account for Daylight Saving Time. With Daylight Saving Time we adjust clocks forward 1 hour at the start of Spring and
adjust them backward one hour in the Autumn. In order to adjust Local Time forward by one
hour press the Up key twice. When the correct Local Time is displayed press the ‘OK’ key and now the entry has been stored. Press the back key to leave the menu and then press
the ‘OK’ key to confirm. The Time is now displayed in Local Time. The
Local Time symbol is now visible beside the time and will remain there until the time
is changed back to match UTC Time.
