1. Use enclosed alcohol preparation pad to clean the inside windshield where the antenna is
to be placed. For proper operation, the antenna should be placed on flat, clear glass on the
driver’s side interior lower corner of the windshield.
Ensure that the antenna does not extend more than 4 ½ inches from the bottom of the
interior windshield and is located outside the area swept by the windshield wipers.
Do NOT place the antenna in the following areas:
• Behind
stickers or decals already on the glass
the shade band of the glass
• On a curved area of the glass
• On a moist or damp area of the glass
• On an area that will obstruct the driver’s view
• On
2. Run the cables up the door seam or up through the dashboard.
3. Remove the protective-strip from the antenna to expose the adhesive.
4. Carefully affix the antenna to the glass that was prepped in Step 1.
Press the antenna firmly to the glass while
being careful not to damage the antenna.

Installation Tip: Please note that
the ideal temperature range to
perform the installation is between
70°F to 100°F (21°C to 38°C) with

Verifying Successful Installation
15
1. Start the vehicle’s engine. All lights (Red, Yellow, and Green) on the device should
begin blinking rapidly (twice a second).
2. The device is operating normally when the rapid blinking ceases and the Green and
Yellow lights begin to blink in a slow pattern (ON for 5 seconds and OFF for 1 second).
The Red light pattern will continue to vary and should not be used to verify installation.
3. The device should take no longer than 10–15 minutes after the engine is started to reach
normal operating mode which will indicate a successful installation.

1. For the Cellular Antenna, slide the end of the
Networkcar branded yellow zip tie into the
cut-away section on the back left side of the
device. If the antenna is plugged in correctly
(at a 90° angle) the zip tie should slide through
the top of the cellular antenna plastic cap. Lock
the zip tie and cut the excess plastic to prevent
the antenna cable from being unplugged.
Cellular Antenna Port
2. For the GPS antenna, slide the end of the
Networkcar branded yellow zip tie into the cutaway section of the top right side of the device.
If the antenna is plugged in correctly, the zip tie
should slide through the top of the GPS antenna
plastic cap. The zip tie should now be looped
through the plastic end cap of the device, as well
as the plastic cap of the antenna cable. Lock the
zip tie and cut the excess plastic to prevent the
antenna cable from being unplugged.

Note: For easier threading of the zip tie through the plastic cap of
each antenna, bend the end to curve it upward.

Creating Tamper Evidence
3a. Once the Light/Medium Duty vehicle harness
is plugged in, slide a Networkcar branded yellow
zip tie through the slots provided in front of the
harness connector, moving from the left to right
side of the device (Threading the tie in the
opposite direction may cause interference with
the GPS antenna connector). Once the zip tie is
in place across the back of the harness connector,
tighten and remove the excess plastic. If possible,
position the zip tie so that the “DO NOT
REMOVE” message is showing.
3b. Once the Heavy Duty or Universal vehicle
harness is plugged in, slide a Networkcar
branded yellow zip tie through the slots
provided in the center of the top and bottom
sides of the device end cap. Thread the zip
tie in between the black and blue wires on
the harness. Once the zip tie is in place across
the back of the harness connector, tighten and
remove the excess plastic. If possible,
position the zip tie so that the “DO NOT
REMOVE” message is showing.

Securing the Device & Completing Installation
18
1. Before securing the device under the dashboard, make
sure that you have recorded the VIN, hardware serial number,
and odometer reading on the registration form. Also verify
that you have checked the light indicators. After installation,
provide the registration form to the fleet manager for delivery
to Networkcar.
2. Use zip ties to fasten the hardware securely
to a stable bracket or wire bundle under the
dash.
3. Loosely bundle the antenna’s excess cable
and secure it away from moving parts.
Bundling it tightly will have a negative
effect on its performance.

Frequently Asked Questions
20
General
Q: What is the power draw for the device?
A:Normal Operating Mode 200 mA @ 12 V
Sleep Mode 21 mA @ 12V
Q: Are the harnesses interchangeable between 3100, 3400 and 3500 product lines?
A: Yes as long as it is the same type of unit. For example, a H3100 harness can be used on a
H3500 unit.
Q: Are the devices interchangeable? Can I use a L3500 device with a H3500 harness and
install it on a heavy duty vehicle?
A: No, each device has special software that makes it only compatible with a certain class
of vehicles.
• L3500 (1996 and newer vehicles Class 1-6 Light Duty)
• H3500 (1996 and newer vehicles Class 7-8 Heavy Duty)
• U3500 (Any vehicle - Universal)
Q: When installing the U3500 device, are fuses involved or can the device be “wired hot”?
A: We recommend splicing the U3500 harness to fused leads, though the device can be
“wired hot” since there is an internal re-settable fuse. An inline fuse is not necessary,
however if one is used, it should be at least 5 amps.

Frequently Asked Questions
21
Antenna
Q: Are the antennas interchangeable between the 3100, 3400 and 3500 product lines?
A: No.
Q: Can the glass mount antenna be installed in the A-Pillar?
A: No, the glass mount antenna is designed so that it will only function properly with a clear
view of the sky which is best achieved by placing it on the glass windshield.
Q: I need to do a unit transfer. Can I re-use the antenna? How do I remove it from the glass?
A: No, you cannot re-use the antenna on another vehicle. The adhesive on the antenna is
one-time use only and will not function properly after it is removed.
* Re-installation kits are available - contact Customer Care at (866) 227-7323
for more information.
Instructions for Antenna Removal
Because of the strength of the antenna adhesive, use a razor or Goo Gone (a household
solvent) for removal.
1. To remove the antenna with a razor, peel a small section of the antenna off of the glass
and slide the razor between the glass and the antenna.
2. Using a sawing motion, carefully remove the antenna from the glass and discard.
