The MGS60 is a Plug & Play device and as such, no special installation knowledge is required, and the installation can be carried out by the user of the system.
The device plugs in directly to the existing OBD (On-Board-Diagnostics) port of the vehicle according to the instructions provided below.
Fleet Complete Customer Support can assist you with the process if required.

Once device is installed, the device LED will start blinking.
The meaning of LED status is explained in the table below:
|GNSS Fix is acquired||Once every second||Accurate GSM, no GPRS|
|Once every 4 seconds||Accurate GSM, GPRS connected|
|Always on, blinks once every 4 seconds||Link with server is open|
|Once every 0.2 seconds||No signal|
|GNSS fix is not acquired||Twice every second||Accurate GSM, no GPRS|
|Twice every 4 seconds||Accurate GSM, GPRS connected|
|Always on, blinks twice every 4 seconds||Link with the server is open|
|Twice every 0.2 seconds||No signal|
|Sleep Mode||Once every 10 seconds||The device is in sleep mode|
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.
