Power supply

The TL1000 kit includes a patented OBDII power supply ( large rectangular cable with a USB end) . Please see the how to video section
This power supply if always ON and will ensure the GPS is already connected to the satellites and ready to go anytime you start driving.

We DO NOT recommend using cigarette lighter adapter as they are not reliable and tend to disconnect easily, turning off the unit and creating inconsistent trips.

DO NOT use any integrated car USB to power the TL1000 . Most of those are also linked to the car audio systems.
If the car system tries to communicate with the instrument, If the TL1000 will detect a communication link, For the instrument, this is a signal to put itself in communication mode and will therefore STOP any recording.

WARNING
Some car radio will also try to write to the TL1000 and will render it unusable. This condition is detectable and is not covered by warranty.

We highly recommend the OBDii power supply module because it enables the instrument to be permanently powered and ready immediately as you start driving.
For more information on fitting the OBDii module view the Support page or the "how to" slide show video Please see the how to video section here

                                             
Location of the Logger

The recommended location is near the driver side window pillar. This location is not a technical requirement, but it prevents being a distraction and is easy to reach in order to press the button without taking your eyes off the road.

This location makes it easy to route the cables in a much simpler and secured way.
Fitting and Installing

  • Clean the area.
  • Remove the protective film from the sticky pad ( small black or transparent rubber circle)
  • Pad it in your hands a few times to make it less sticky.
  • apply it to the base of the logger first.
  • Carefully place it in position where it can be reached in the driving position.

Once the power module is connected, route the cable up to the logger, preferably by the side of the door seal.
Tie up and secure the cable out of the way using the cable tie.
Please see how to video section about installing the device in the car.

Wait until the instrument stops flashing before driving. When flashing, the instrument is looking for a valid satellite signals.
