Odometer fraud in Europe is worth around € 9 billion a year * (2 of which in Italy alone) and it affects approximately 50% of vehicles circulating in the Union.
Such illegal practice creates a chain of economic distortions that disadvantage final consumers, dealers, manufacturers, rental companies and insurance companies. Lastly, it affects the safety of circulating pre-owned vehicles.

Diogene "reads" the actual mileage, without altering it in any way.
The Swiss company FGMTECH in collaboration with EVOLVEA has developed and produced Diogene: a device (hardware and software) able to read the miles actually traveled by vehicles of the main car companies*.
Diogene algorithms, also developed by FGMTECH, examine the electronic control units of the vehicle through an ODB connector, collecting and displaying all data in the software installed on the supplied PDA.
Therefore, Diogene is able to determine the real mileage of the vehicle (bypassing any previous alteration or tampering), all the while providing additional technical parameters. This solution will help containing a hidden practice, that is regrettably too widespread, returning more reliability, fairness and safety to the pre-owned vehicles market
*Diogene actually supports mileage certification services for all models of the following manufacturers: Alfa Romeo, Audi, BMW, Citroën, Fiat, Ford, Jeep, Lancia, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Opel, Peugeot, Renault, Seat, Skoda, Smart, Toyota, Volkswagen.
DIOGENE USES AN OBD KEY, PROGRAMMED TO CARRY OUT ALL DIAGNOSTIC FUNCTIONS. THE KEY INTERACTS WITH THE PDA THROUGH BLUETOOTH CONNECTION.
