Installation Instructions for the GenX 5P and GenX 6P Tracking Devices with “J” Wiring Cable

OBDII Port Location
Find the vehicle’s OBD-II port location. It is typically below the driver’s side of the dashboard or in the center console.

OBD-II Tracking Device
Plug the male OBD-II connector on the tracking device’s cable into the vehicle’s female OBD-II port.


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


Plug the rectangular plug into the device.

Mount the Tracking Device
Find a secure location below the dashboard 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.


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).
