Read important related safety information and limitations of use following these installation instructions. Read and follow all instructions and warnings to prevent serious injury and/or vehicle damage
Before Installation, add the device to your online Fleet Management Application using the device serial number. This will ensure all data logged from point of install onward is sent to your online application.
Preparing For Installation
Before installing your device, please document your device serial number. You will need this information at a later time to verify your installation.
Verify that we support your vehicle by carefully reading the device release notes at goo.gl/fZURff or from the vehicle specific installation notes at goo.gl/MCIXt0. If you have any questions or concerns please consult your Authorized Reseller.
Ensure no dash warning lights are on in the vehicle while it is running, and all other functions such as headlamps and flashers etc. are working prior to installing the device.
WARNING! Some installations are not straightforward and must be completed by an Authorized Installer to ensure a secure installation. An unsecure device installation can cause poor electric and/or data connection that can lead to short circuits and fires or cause malfunctions of vehicle controls that can result in serious personal injury or significant damage to your vehicle. Some examples requiring professional installation from an Authorized Installer are:
The OBD port location is such that the device could protrude or interfere
when entering or exiting the vehicle or located so could be inadvertently kicked or bumped during vehicle operation.
The device isn’t fully secured and so may be able to vibrate loose or get kicked or knocked.
An electrical harness or additional wiring is required.
Vehicle mounting modifications are required to secure the device i.e. removing of panels, or the OBD connector has been deformed/damaged or there is any physical damage visible to the electrical wiring.
The device does not beep six times and power on when first installed.
The installer questions their ability to complete a secure installation according to these instructions.
Installation in Four Steps
For the instructions included with the device, please visit: goo.gl/QnadCU.
Based on the warnings above, if you determine that a professional installation by an Authorized Installer is not required, the following basic installation steps can be followed.
WARNING! All in-vehicle devices and related cabling must be securely fastened and kept clear of all vehicle controls, including gas, brake and clutch pedals. This requires the use of a cable tie when securing the device or any extension harness to the OBD connector, securing both sides of the harness. If you do not use a cable tie, vibration in the vehicle can lead to a loose connection which could indirectly cause the vehicle’s engine computer to fail, loss of vehicle control and cause serious injury. Inspect devices and cabling regularly to ensure all devices and cabling continue to be securely attached.
WARNING! If at any point after an in-vehicle device is installed a warning light illuminates on the vehicle dash or the vehicle stalls or has a marked drop in performance, shut off the engine, remove the device, and contact your reseller. Continuing to operate a vehicle with these symptoms can cause loss of vehicle control, and serious injury.
