Wiring connection method:

 

Power cable connection method: Open the cover of the car safety box and measure the voltage with a multimeter. As shown in the figure, the range of the voltage of the car power supply is between DC11V and 13V. (The multimeter red pen is positive and the black pen is negative.) Find out the positive and negative poles of the power supply.

 

Description: Normal power supply means that no matter whether the car key is inserted or not, as long as the battery has electricity, this wire has electricity;

 

ACC line:

refers to the key from ON to ACC, this line has no electricity, after the key has been screwed to ON, this line has electricity.

 

Connection method:

 

The positive pole (red) of the power supply is directly connected to the positive pole of the automobile battery(power), the negative pole is connected to the negative pole of the automobile battery (i.e. touch iron); the ACC line (yellow) is connected to the ACC line of the automobile.

 

After the connection is completed, junction point should be wrapped with insulating tape to avoid electric shock and damage of equipment caused by short circuit.

 

When the line passing through the corner, connection part or other places of the vehicle, the outer skin of the conductor should be insulated and wrapped with insulating tape, so as to avoid long-term friction between the conductor and the car, resulting in the wear and tear of the protective adhesive tape of the conductor ,which might cause short circuit.

 

Friendly Reminder:

 

In principle, the first option of power supply is the reserved power of the automobile, and the second is the power of the automobile media audio or cigarette lighter, as these power will not affect other configurations of the automobile. Avoiding wrong wiring can lead to many minor faults.

 

Install GPS antenna

 

Make sure you don't switch on the equipment power first!

 

1)The arc side of the GPS antenna face the sky, and there is no metal shielding and electromagnetic shielding above.

2) In order to receive good signal, the flat bottom of the GPS antenna should be installed as flat as possible, and the angle should not exceed 45 degrees.

3) The wiring is as concealed as possible: first, it is beautiful; second, it is to prevent unintentional or intentional damage.

4) Suggested installation location of GPS receiver: under the front windshield or under the rear windshield.if it can be installed on the top of the car, the receiving effect is the best;

5) Generally, the GPS antenna interface on the left side of the device is in silver, and the GPS antenna interface is also in silver!

 

Install 4G antenna

 

Make sure you don't switch on the equipment power first!

 

1)To avoid signal being interfered, the 4G antenna should keep distance from other cables.

2)To avoid the interference between 4G signal and the wireless devices in the car (such as radio), it is suggested that the distance between the 4G antenna and these devices should be further than 50 cm.

3) Suggested installation location of 3G/4G antenna: concealment place such as under the front windshield, under the seat or under the panel ,under the rear windshield.

4) It is better that do not put the unit ,the 4G antenna, the GPS antenna together, and try to keep the distance above 20 centimeters at least.

5) The 4G antenna can be fixed by double-sided glue or velcro. The antenna connector should be tightened to avoid the looseness of the connector caused by long-term vibration, which might affect the signals reception and transmission.

Q: the device is turned on and the TF card has been inserted successfully, but it doesn’t record?

A: check that the SD card is in good contact

 

Q: The GPS module exists,but has no coordinate information.

A: 1. Check whether the GPS antenna is broken or not, and whether it connects well or not.It is recommended to install it in a place       with strong signal. Note that some car glass shielding film will block the GPS signal.

    2. If it is tested in the room,the GPS signal is shielded or weak. It is recommended that the GPS antenna be placed outdoors or          outside of the window.

 

Q: GPS geographical location in the map shows deviation?

A: If the GPS module is already positioned, the signal is valid. There are many reasons for the deviation, such as:government restrictions, error tolerance, GPS signal interruption, etc. The actual map will deviate a little for safety reason. The general this kind of problem can be solved by using GPS correction.

 

Q: The device is not online on the platform?

A: Please check whether the 4G antenna connect well or not. If the signal is too weak, it may not be able to dial successfully; in addition, check if the SIM card has enough flow. If there is no flow, the device will not be able to go online.

 

 

 

Troubleshooting: The device is not online.

(1).Check whether the device terminal number is correct or not. Enter 12 digits terminal number according to the platform, set IP and port correct correctly.

(2). Check whether the 4G signal of the device is normal. If there is no signal, change a place and look at the signal. If there is no 4G signal, there may be a problem with the SIM card.

(3). Check the information on the platform.

(4). If the device does not go online, please check whether the SIM card is installed and the installation is abnormal or not (usually the chip side is in upward direction), check whether the SIM card has enough flow, if the card expires or the card is stopped, the device will not go online.
