Updated on April 9, 2012 - If you purchased a hard wired unit prior to this date, please contact your sales associate as your installation instructions might vary slightly.
The LGPS Tracking Unit is a completely self contained device, requiring only a constant power, ground and ignition powered wire to operate. Within the case are two antennas for both GPS data and GSM/GPRS communication. This device is easily installed in a concealed location, such as under the dash.
The LGPS Hardwire Unit requires constant power to operate properly. The red wire will need to beconnected to a constant 12v+ source. This can be easily located under the dash: fuse panels are a good place to start, as well as the thicker gauge wires. The black wire will need to be connected to a solid ground. Always use a bolt directly connected to the chassis to ensure a good ground. Using smaller bolts connected to secondary frames may result in occasional power loss. The
white wire will need to be connected to a 12V ignition wire.
This wire must receive constant voltage when ignition is on, and no voltage when the ignition is off.
Note: Some wiring harnesses may have more than 3 wires. If your harness has more than the 3 wires referenced above, you can cap off the remaining wires with any extra connectors or electrical tape - the other wires will NOT be used.
Mounting the Unit
When mounting the LGPS Tracking Unit, there should not be any metal directly above the device. The device's internal antennas will be able to get signals through plastic, glass, and the like...but metal object will interfere.
Once the device is mounted, the device should power up. The LED indicators will show a
Orange light. When initially powered, these indicators may be blinking while trying to establish a connection. After a few moments, both Green and Orange lights should become solid.
