Installation Instructions for the GenX5P and GenX6P Tracking Devices with the 6 pin or 9 pin “Y” Wiring Cable

Tools required: Phillips or Torx head screwdriver & zip ties (provided in package)

Find the vehicle’s 6 or 9 pin port location. It is typically below the driver’s side of the dashboard or in the center console.


Remove the vehicle’s existing 6 or 9pin connector from the plate with a phillips or Torx head screwdriver.

Remove the vehicle’s female 6 or 9 pin port from the plate.

Plug the male adapter from the device’s harness into the vehicle’s female 6 or 9 pin plug.

Secure the vehicle’s pre-existing 6 or 9 pin port below the dash with a zip tie.  Take the female 6 or 9 pin plug from the device’s harness and insert into the plug from the tracking device.

Use the male plug from the tracking device’s harness to replace the vehicle’s 6 or 9pin plug.

Use the screwdriver to mount the new plug onto the vehicle’s mounting plate.

Zip tie any excess wire to a wire loom behind the dashboard.


Plug the rectangular plug into the device.


Find a secure location below the dash board to mount the device. Use zip ties to secure it to a wiring bundle or to the vehicle’s frame to ensure that it does not slip out while the vehicle is in operation.

Mount the device with the identification labels faced upward to ensure the best satellite reception. The QR code sticker should be facing down.

Required Information

Record the serial number for the device and the VIN/Year/Make/Model of the vehicle on your worksheet for activation.


Testing the Device


In order to test the device, the vehicle must be parked outside in an open area so that it can receive a GPS lock. The device’s LEDs will indicate proper operation.

Green LED’s

The unit will power up as the vehicle’s ignition is turned on. The Green LED will show solid
for approximately 30 seconds (there may be some brief flickers initially while the processor
initializes). At no other time should the green LED remain on solid for such a long period.
After 30 seconds the green LED will start to flash at the following rates:
– 25 times on-off every 10 seconds when the ignition is on (this is quite rapid)
– 8 times on-off every 10 seconds when the ignition is off (this is quite slow)
– Very short blip once every 3 seconds when in sleep mode

Red LEDs

The RED LED flashes 2-digit codes. Roughly speaking the first digit tells you what general
area is having a problem (hardware, modem, GPS, end-end service). The second digit
gives specific error information. Since there can be more than one error condition the
unit rotates through the error codes (for example if GPS is tracking no satellites and the modem is not registered).

Remember to record the serial number for the device and the VIN/Year/Make/Model of the vehicle that the device is installed in.
