Install the tracker

  • Insert tracker inside handlebar. If curved handlebar let the unit bend naturally. Do not bend unit by force of hand.
    Make sure that the LED-light is facing right when installing the tracker – this is so that the antenna stays in the correct position and receives the best possible GPS signal.
    Install dummy bar-end inside the other handlebar.

Lock the unit

  • Fasten the screws using the attached tool. Tighten the two screws evenly, one at a time.

Put on screw caps and USB-C cover
