Installing the Geotab GO5, GO6, and G07
With a Low Profile Extension Cable
This extension cable is for engine diagnostic ports which are located where they may interfere with driver accessibility (ie. knocked by foot or knee. The installation is quite simple and in minutes you’ll have your GPS tracking hardware in place. No technical knowledge required.
*** The cable is NOT included with the purchase of the GO device and ***
*** must be purchased separately ***
If the installed GO device is protruding and might interfere with driver access, because it may be hit by a knee or a shoe, then re-positioning the engine diagnostics port (OBDII) is a simple process.
Most OBDII ports are attached to the vehicle frame with two or even one single screw.
- Remove the screw(s) which attach the OBDII port to the vehicle frame, so that it hangs loose
- Attach the GO device to the OBDII port, and turn the GO device 90 degrees so that it is facing to the right or left side, but do not turn the GO device 180 degrees to face the rear (because signal reception / transmission may be compromised)
- Secure the OBDII port with a simple twist tie or plastic lock tie or electrical tape
