Repositioning the OBDII Port

If you decide that the unit sticks out too much, then you could consider making a small adjustment, which is very easy for you to do. Keep in mind that some drivers may not want to be tracked. If the tracking unit is sticking out, then a driver may “accidentally” kick the unit, in order to disable it.

Unscrew the OBDII port, turn it 90°, and tie it back into the vehicle with a simple twist tie. Every OBDII port is connected to the body of the vehicle with either two screws, one single screw, or no screws at all – ie. it pops in/out of the frame.



If you decide that you do not want to make this small adjustment, then you can purchase a harness to extend the reach of the Geotab GO device (Extension Cable) or a T-harness which will allow an additional OBDII port to remain available.
