Accessories  

 If the device prevents the vehicle from functioning properly or the OBD2 port location does not allow the device to function properly, you can order one of the two optional cables available.

If you use an OBD2 extension cable, it is recommended to place the device next to the steering wheel or the center console so that the LED is pointing towards the interior of the vehicle and not to the engine compartment.

When using a 12V cigarette lighter plug, it’s also possible to install the device in the rear 12V socket, so that, preferably in cases of hatchbacks, station wagons or minivans, the device would be pointed towards a window for better GPS signal reception.
