There are 2 options to wiring our fixed tracking unit SC-GPS-4005 and SC-GPS-4001 into your vehicle, this really can depend on the the type of vehicle you are wanting to install the unit into and the options you require.
Option 1: (Preferred Option)
The diagram below shows wiring the units positive (RED Wire) and the Ignition (WHITE Wire) together to the same 12V+ or 24V+ power source, wired this way the unit will still function correctly but will not report ignition on and off this is our preferred option.
The unit can be wired to detect ignition on and off this is not normally required for normal GPS tracking however if you wish to monitor ignition on and off please wire the (White) wire to vehicles accessories this is useful if your want to monitor when the ignition is turned on or off, and also monitor engine hours.
Installation in motor vehicles is best carried out by a auto electrician, if installing the unit into a motor vehicle its best to be installed in dash as high as possible and hard wired to vehicles fuse box, the less metal surfaces above and around tracking device the better it will perform.
