• Date and time of the accident

• Acceleration in the direction of travel and in a sideways direction

• GPS location and vehicle speed

    You can simply plug the Crash Recorder into your vehicle's service interface (OBD2) yourself. In a small number of vehicles, the installation is only possible using a cable since the installation location is in an unfortunate position in the vehicle. In such cases, DESA will carry out the installation so that we can be sure the Crash Recorder functions reliably. The Crash Recorder delivery includes information as to whether you can install it yourself or whether DESA will carry out the installation. Installation by DESA takes about 20-30 minutes.
