The original intent of the installation of this device was to record the information which leads to the deployment decision of the air bag supplemental restraint systems. Information from these devices can be collected after a crash and analyzed to to determine what a vehicle was doing during, before and after a crash or event.

Additionally, Crashteams experts have the necessary training in crash data retrieval to interpret the download data reports and advise you accordingly.
