Posted by Don Ottenhof on 12 November 2020 12:03 PM

We are proud to present you the new software suite iControl.

The all-in-one software solution to make your Squarell vehicle data interface ready for use.

The software suite contains:

  • Upload: upload firmware and hardware profiles to the Squarell device (previously known as iUpload),
  • Check: check the device and vehicle parameter data (previously known as iCheck),
  • Configure: send and receive messages to and from the device and configure settings (previously known as Docklight).

iControl is the ideal companion for Squarell's latest product, the REMOTE: the one box solution that combines a vehicle data interface with modem functionality.

New version of iUpload available
Posted by Don Ottenhof on 10 January 2020 12:09 PM

As you may have noticed, it is not possible to synchronize with iUpload 2.7.7 or an older version. This is because Squarell recently improved its security and iUpload 2.7.7 or older were unfortunately unable to handle the new security systems. We have developed iUpload 2.7.8 where everything works as it should.


Unfortunately it is not possible to update iUpload automatically so this will have to be done manually. We therefore ask all customers to download the latest version of iUpload.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

RTD change Smart Tacho and new iUpload version
Posted by Don Ottenhof on 19 December 2019 10:57 AM

With the Smart Tacho/Tacho 4.0 there is a small change with the Remote Tacho Download.

Because we notice that a number of customers get stuck on this, we still want to share some information about this.

The answer sent to the tacho has changed. The tacho asks for a confirmation (PositiveResponse TransferData Technical Data). With the old tachographs, 05 was sent to the tachograph and 05 was answered by the tachograph. With the new tachographs, 05 is sent to the tachograph and 25 is answered by the tachograph (see page 17 of the document in the link). This (TRTP#2/TREP#2) has to be changed in your software.



A new version of iUpload (2.7.7.) is also online.

We have made an adjustment to iUpload so that customers can see which password they are entering. 

If the field is completely empty, the characters become visible until the field loses focus (the field leaves by clicking on something else).

If the field is empty and you click on it, the characters will also be visible. So if you clear the field and then control+c / control+v it should be visible what it says.

Important message for all Stoneridge tachograph users
Posted by Don Ottenhof on 20 November 2019 09:47 AM

Recently we have received messages from customers who had problems obtaining K-Line data on their Stoneridge tachograph. They always receive the same fixed data. This is because the tachograph is set to "extended mode".


In order to solve this problem, the tachograph needs to be set in "non-extended mode".

This can be done by a tachograph specialist. Next, the message SetTachoK,5,5,512<CR><LF> must be sent to your Squarell device to force it to Stoneridge (without data validation).



This does not mean that you should send this message to your Squarell device by default when using a Stoneridge tachograph, but only if you are experiencing this problem.
