How do I install the GPS sensor for Dash for Fleets?

Follow

Adding the GPS tracking sensor (called an OBD) is a quick and easy process. No wires, no screws, no mechanic.

 

Step 1: Locate your vehicle's OBD port

This is the port that mechanics use to check if your vehicle's emissions system is operating properly. If you're not already familiar, this is what it looks like.  

This is usually found underneath the steering wheel in the driver's footwell area. Some vehicles have small covers over the port itself. 

If you have trouble finding this port, try this ODB port locator from CarMD.

 

Step 2: Insert the Dash OBD device

This step is as simple as it sounds - just line the device up with the connector and press it in. As the unit draws power from the car battery, you should see the LED lights turn on.

Blue means power; green means GPS; orange means OBD is communicating with the car. 

You likely won't be able to replace the cover, so stow that appropriately. 

When you next turn on the engine, the device will begin communicating your data to the cloud over the cellular network. You will be able to see trips and data from this vehicle in your Dash for Fleets web dashboard.
