How does installation work?

Our tracking devices are one of the most user-friendly on the market, especially in their installation. The devices can be installed on any vehicle in a matter of seconds by simply plugging them into a vehicle’s diagnostic port. We also offer a relocation cable if you would like to keep the device tucked out of the way, as well as a 6 or 9-pin connector cable for large trucks with an ECM port. Regardless of the vehicle, installation on average takes less than 10 seconds.
