Frequently asked questions.

The RIO Box is installed as standard in all MAN Truck & Bus AG trucks and buses released since August 2017. Older MAN trucks and those of other brands can be retrofitted via the MAN service centre network.

All new MAN trucks are factory-fitted with RIO as standard. We offer an optional retrofit solution for all other trucks and makes, provided they have an FMS interface. 

Yes, the RIO Box can also be fitted in vehicles conforming to the Euro 3 to Euro 5 emissions standards. However, you should discuss the technical requirements for this with MAN truck sales staff. 

MAN trucks with a TBM1 cannot be integrated into the platform.

One of the core functions is "over the air" updating. Updates are downloaded to the RIO Box and installed without customers or service workshops having to do anything at all. This ensures that customers benefit from the latest software versions at all times. 

RIO is founded on the "Bring your own device" principle. The idea behind this is to ensure maximum compatibility for all RIO products - including the RIO Box. The RIO Box already features Bluetooth and WLAN interfaces.

Red - Error. Please contact the Customer Care Hotline (phone: 00800 22 550 746).

The RIO Box is sold as a MAN spare part, and as such is subject to the established warranty and goodwill arrangements.
