In order to connect the Ignition detection on our GPS Tracking Software and learn when the engine of your vehicle is ON or OFF, you will have to follow the below instructions:

1) You will need to connect the Ignition cable of your GPS Tracker device (usually the yellow cable, DI1) at a cable of your car, which has power when the engine is ON (Please refer to the user manual of your device). We suggest to connect it directly to the ignition cable.

2) Once you have connected the proper cable, edit your GPS Tracker device and navigate on the “Sensors” tab.
