Solution description[edit | edit source]

This solution will allow your company car to be used by employees for personal purposes without violating the EU General Data Protection Regulations by masking all the personal data while vehicle is used in Private mode. Moreover, self-employed people can easily convert their own car into a business asset and ensure that the data provided (Example - distance traveled) is correct and shown only working hours' driven distance, because using FMP100 is simple as it can be.

What you need for a solution?[edit | edit source]

  • For this solution we will use FMP100 device. However, any FMBXXX series device can be used (excluding FMX640 series) with this scenario depending on how you want to change the trip mode (via BLE or a button connected to DIN)
  • Teltonika Configurator to set up FM device correctly for the solution.
  • Dedicated firmware version 03.27.07.Rev.461 (please contact you sales manager for the newest version)
  • SIM card in order to get data to your server
  • FOTA WEB to remotely send the configuration to the device.

Installation[edit | edit source]

The device is easy to install, but keep in mind that although the device have high-gain antennas, it is important to mount the device with engraving on top and in metal-free space. For example if you have several 12V sockets in a van, you should not choose one in the back cabin.

2. Configuring Private/Business Mode Scenario[edit | edit source]

  • Configure the APN in GPRS settings.



  • 2001 – APN
  • 2002 – APN username (No APN username > leave the field blank)
  • 2003 – APN password (No APN password > leave the field blank)




  • Configure the server in GPRS settings.


  • 2004 – Domain
  • 2005 – Port
  • 2006 – Data sending protocol (0 – TCP, 1 – UDP)




  • Parameter ID: 113 – Codec 8 Extended (0 – Codec 8, 1 – Codec 8 Extended)

AVL parameters greater than 255 (HEX 0xFF) require “Codec 8 extended” to be sent to the server.


  • Select priority in Trip \ Odometer - Private/Business mode settings.




  • Parameter ID: 11850 – Priority settings (0 – Disable, 1 – Low priority, 2 - High priority, 3 - Panic priority)



  • Enable Eventual Records in Trip \ Odometer - Private/Business mode settings.




  • Choose a trigger to change trip mode in Trip \ Odometer - Private/Business mode settings.


  • Parameter ID: 11811Triggers (16 – BTApp, 32 – NBL-1 Button1, 64 – NBL-1 Button2, 128 – FMP100 Button, 255 – Enable All)




  • Choose which position should device send when Private mode is enabled in Trip \ Odometer - Private/Business mode settings.


  • Parameter ID: 11813GPS Data Masking (0 – Normal, 1 – Data sent as Zero, 2 – Last good known position)




  • Choose whether the distance traveled in private mode should be included in the total odometer IO element in Trip \ Odometer - Private/Business mode settings.





  • Choose which event will deactivate Private mode and switch to Business in Trip \ Odometer - Private/Business mode settings.


  • Parameter ID: 11816Deactivate by (0 – Disable, 1 – Towing detection, 2 – Unplug detection, 4 – Crash detection, 8 – Autogeofence, 15 – Enable All)



  • Choose a trigger type to change between Private/Business modes in Trip \ Odometer - Private/Business mode settings.
