About CDR Software Subscriptions
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.
CDR Software Reader Version 23.2 includes CDR 2
CDR software reader version enables users to view the hexadecimal data from the opened CDR file but not the actual CDR Report. It also allows access to the CDR Help File and Vehicle Lookup. A CDR Software subscription is required to get access to full functionality such as viewing CDR Reports, imaging EDR data, and printing/exporting data from CDR files.
When the CDR software is first installed on your computer, it is configured as a CDR File Reader and must be activated to get access to all CDR program capabilities. An activation certificate will be emailed to you when you purchase your CDR software subscription or renewal. Activation certificates will also be automatically emailed to you, if you have a current software subscription, when a new software version is released.
NOTE: Never install a new CDR software version unless you have already received the new activation certificate from Bosch. We cannot create an activation certificate for an older version of the software.
