          • We recommend keeping your tracker near a window or outside for 5 minutes after inserting the SIM card to ensure the initial connection to the tracking platform can be established.
          • Your portable tracker is IP55 water and dust resistant.

            Splashes of water and rain won't affect operation, but the unit should not be submerged or exposed to high pressure blasts)
          • If using the built-in magnets to mount your tracker, ensure they have good contact with a clean vehicle surface and do not interfere with any electronic or mechanical components.
          • Do not mount the tracker in a location where it is exposed to high temperatures (exhaust, engine bay, externally in direct sunlight etc.)
          • To recharge your tracker, open the port cover on the side and plugin the supplied micro USB cable. Recharging may take 6-10 hours depending on battery size and the charger used.
