Installation Steps

  1. 1. Installation Preparation.

    1. Complete the registration card by locating the 19-digit serial number and record the last 12 numerical digits.
    2. Identify a suitable mounting location that is horizontal to the ground, has an unobstructed view of the sky, is not a removable panel, and will not be damaged during normal operation of the asset.
    3. Covert Installation: Though the device may report accurately in covertly installed locations, we do not recommend this type of installation due to the potential for lost data and/or diminished battery life.

    4. Inspect the area directly beneath the mounting location to ensure nothing will be damaged when drilling.

  2. 2. Device Mounting.

    1. Position the mounting bracket and mark the position of the two holes.
    2. Set the device aside and drill the holes.
    3. Insert a well nut into each hole.
    4. Secure the device to the asset with screws.
    5. Do not overtighten the screws as you will damage the well nut.

  3. 3. Activation and Registration.

    1. Open the GPS Insight VerifyGPS Web App via your smartphone or computer, then enter following information and follow the prompts to register the device.
      • Enter your Install Key.
      • Enter the Device Serial Number.
      • The Device Serial Number is the last 12 numerical digits.

      • Select Device Type: ST-600.
      • Click ‘Next’ and follow the prompts to verify and register the device.
      • Device will not appear on the map initially. It takes ~6 hours of direct sunlight to start reporting and ~60 hours of sunlight to fully charge the battery.

      • Upon successful registration, give the registration card to your GPS administrator.
