Bosch CDR Software Subscription

Description: Each new release of the CDR software may include new capabilities and functions which enable you to access EDR data from the latest passenger cars, light trucks and SUVs. As the capabilities in supported vehicles evolve and grow, software changes to your CDR Tool may be required in order to enable communication with and translate crash data (EDR data) from these vehicles. Bosch will send out new releases of software and Activation Certificates to current CDR subscribers as these changes are implemented and made available on the Crash Data Group website.
