1) Select in-vehicle device location
This device is equipped with an IP66 dust and water-resistant case making it suitable for a wide range of applications.
- Securely position the device with the correct side pointing skyward. (device label indicates proper orientation)
- Do not cover with metal or position near any source of interference.
- Failure to follow these instructions may result in weak cellular and/or GPS signal and will impact the performance of the device.
Type 1 – GPS Only
2) Connect ignition
In order to function properly, the device needs to be connected to a suitable “True” Ignition source.
- This source has battery voltage whenever the vehicle is turned on and zero volts whenever the vehicle is turned off.
- This source does NOT drop in voltage during crank.
- Connect the White wire to the ignition source.
- This source must operate the same when starting by key or by a remote starter.
- If connecting starter disable, the ignition source must provide sufficient power to trigger the relay.
3) Connect constant power
The device requires a minimum 12Volt constant (Battery Power) on this line to function and up to 24Volts.
- Do not remove/bypass the fuse.
- Connect the Red wire to a constant 12-24V source.
4) Connect ground
For best results, create a new connection to bare-metal chassis ground.
- Do not use a shared ground or supplied ground from any module or device.
- Connect the Black wire to ground.
Type 2 – GPS with Starter Disable (optional)
5) Connect starter disable (optional)
The device prevents the vehicle from starting by triggering a relay to open and disconnect a “Vehicle Start Interrupt Wire”. Starter disable is optional, please check with your supervisor before proceeding.
Connect the device to the relay:
- Connect the Black wire from Relay Harness (86) to the Green wire of the device.
- Connect the White wire from Relay Harness (85) to the White wire of the device.
Connect the relay to the vehicle start interrupt wire (DO NOT USE A WIRE THAT WILL SHUT DOWN THE VEHICLE WHEN RUNNING)
- This is a wire that if cut will prohibit the vehicle from starting by any method.
- Be sure to test after the wire is cut that the vehicle cannot be started AND when reconnected the vehicle starts without fault codes.
- Due to data bus systems on newer vehicles, this wire may not be at the ignition switch.
- Connect the Red wire of the Relay Harness (87a) to one side of the cut Vehicle Start Interrupt Wire.
- Connect the Blue wire of the Relay Harness (30) to the other side of the cut Vehicle Start Interrupt Wire.
6) Test connections
- Ensure Red wire of the device has a constant 12-24 volts .
- Ensure the White wire is a TRUE ignition source. Measure with a multi-meter to ensure voltage does NOT drop out during crank. Should have zero volts when the vehicle is not running.
- Confirm Starter Kill connections. Remove relay from the relay harness. The vehicle should not start by key or by a remote starter.
IMPORTANT! Follow one of the test procedures below:
Call to Test – Call 1.855.287.4477 with the ESN# of the device(s) to test GPS, ignition, and starter kill (if applicable)
