provides step-by-step installation instructions.
Equipment Included
The WT7000E Locator is shipped with:
‰ A mounting bracket
‰ A GSM stubby antenna
‰ A GPS antenna and cable
‰ A cable with DB15(HD) connector including telemetry and JBUS /
CanBus wiring options.

internal battery.
Installing the WT7000E
Step-by-step Installation
For all installations, the last step is applying power to the Locator.
So make sure that all cabling has been completed before installing
the Locator’s fuses.
Step 1. Screw GSM antenna into connector on side of Locator
‰ Make sure that the stubby antenna is vertical and, if possible, is
perpendicular to the locator. Also, make sure that it is securely
connected to the Locator.
‰ Don’t mount it near any radio frequency (RF) equipment or in-vehicle
speakers.
‰ To tighten it: finger tighten until snug, then use a 1/4” box end wrench
to give it another 1/8 turn. If you are using a torque wrench, set the
wrench to 6 inch-pounds.
Step 2. Plug DB15 cable connector into Locator’s DB15 port.
‰ Connect the cable DB15(HD) connector to the Locator DB15 port.
This cable provides all leads and ports required when installing the
Locator and for connecting accessories to the Locator.
Step 3. Mount external GPS antenna
1.
Determine the best external location for the GPS antenna.
‰ The GPS antenna must face upwards to the sky.
‰ The field of view should be at least 120 degrees. When
determining the antenna’s field of view, note that the GPS
antenna can receive transmission through glass, fiberglass, and
plastics, but not metal. Metallic paint and films may also block the
signal, such as a front windscreen with metal heating film.
‰ Both the antenna and antenna cable are weatherproof, so the
GPS antenna may be mounted on the exterior of the vehicle.
Mounting the antenna on the top of the cab is one of the best
ways to ensure a clear sky view.

Figure 2-2
Minimum field of view for a GPS antenna
2.
Secure the antenna to the chosen mounting area with an adhesive,
(such as silicone), or consider using a through-hole mount antenna.
3.
Secure antenna cables to the Locator using cable ties and mounts
where applicable.
Step 4. Identify best place to mount Locator inside the vehicle
For the most part, you may install the Locator in any place where it is
likely to be secure, dry, and out of harm’s way. The only major concern is
the stubby GSM antenna on the side of the Locator; in order for the GSM
antenna to transmit efficiently it should be oriented vertically (pointing
upwards or downwards). The GSM transmissions are much stronger than
GPS transmissions, so it is not essential that the GSM antenna has a “sky
view”.
Some good locations for mounting the WT7000E are:
‰ Under or behind the dashboard
‰ Under or behind the steering column
‰ Under a parcel shelf.
Note that while the GSM antenna may be mounted on the side of the
Locator, the GPS antenna’s location is not restricted by the Locator’s
position. Take advantage of the GPS antenna’s cable; that’s what it’s
there for.
Step 5. Mount Locator in vehicle
If you are installing a Locator that will be using the Accelerometer option,
please see "Installing a Locator with the Accelerometer Option" on
page C-1 for further information.
2-3
WebTech Wireless Inc.
Installing the WT7000E
The Locator may be fixed in place using any method you care to use, but
note that it must be mounted securely. The recommended method is to
secure the Locator using screws.
‰ Situate the Locator so that the risk of physically damaging it is
minimized (e.g., put it under or behind the dashboard).
‰ If you’re using screws, mount the Locator on the mounting bracket
and secure the Locator to the bracket with the tie wraps provided.
This ensures that the Locator can not be knocked off the bracket.
Don’t do any drilling unless you know exactly what you are drilling
into. For example, find out if there are any wires in the area that you
are going to drill into.
‰ If you’re using Velcro, make sure that the mounting surface is clean.
Velcro installations must not be used for installation requiring the
accelerometer.
‰ You may mount the Locator directly to the vehicle using tie wraps. If
you use this method, be sure that you mount the Locator securely,
preferably to the vehicle frame or something similarly solid.
‰ In non-covert installations, allow access to the Locator’s connectors
and try to place the Locator so that one of the LEDs is visible
Step 6. Wire Locator to vehicle
1.
Splice, solder, and insulate the +12V/+24V (red) wire to the
+12V/+24V vehicle wire.
Make sure that the positive voltage is between 9 and 30 Volts.
2.
Splice, solder, and insulate the ground (black) wire to the vehicle
ground.
3.
Splice, solder, and insulate the ignition (yellow) wire to the vehicle
ignition.
Make sure that the ignition wire is connected to the vehicle true
ignition wire. Use a multimeter to test the vehicle ignition; a true
ignition wire reads 12V throughout the crank, but 0V while the
ignition is off. Check that the ignition wire voltage remains constant
regardless whether the vehicle is in gear or not.
‰ Connect the GPS antenna cable to the Locator. Finger tighten until
snug, then use a 3/16” box end wrench to give it another 1/8 turn. If
you are using a torque wrench, set the wrench to 3 inch-pounds.

Disable).
Step 8. Activate Locator by installing fuses.
Installing the fuses enables the Locator to power up.
Step 9. Visually confirm Locator operation with LED
The Locator has two LED indicators on it: one on the front, the other on
the back. Both allow you to confirm the Locator’s operation.
1.
Move the vehicle to a location where a GPS fix can be obtained with
an unobstructed view to the sky.
2.
Turn the ignition ON.
3.
Wait a few minutes, then check to see if the LED on the Locator is
solid green. If it is, this confirms that the Locator is operating correctly
and has a GPS fix.
4.
If the LED is not solid green or you cannot see one of the two LEDs,
contact Technical Support to help troubleshoot the installation.
‰ For a complete listing of Locator LED definitions, see "Summary
of Locator LED Definitions" on page 3-1.
Step 10. Perform Installation Test
This examines Locator records to make sure that it is properly sensing
and transmitting data. There are two ways to perform it:
1.
Use the Installation Test Tool if you have access to it to confirm that
the Locator has been installed and configured correctly.
‰ The Test Tool is part of the Quadrant Portal, so you must have
access to the internet in order to use it.
‰ For further instructions on how to use this tool, see the
Installation Test Tool User Guide, which is available through the
Quadrant Portal Customer Support Center.

Troubleshooting
Returning the Locator
If you have a non-functional Locator, contact Technical Support. They will
guide you through the process of returning it.
1.
Secure the back plate in place with at least one screw prior to
packaging the Locator for return shipment. Note that this differs from
the way the Locator was shipped to you (in two halves).
2.
If the Locator has the internal battery option, insulate the battery
contacts with electrical tape.
3.
Ideally, return the Locator in its original box. If the original box is not
available, ensure that whatever packaging you use is robust enough
to keep the Locator safe in transit.
4.
Technical Support will provide an RMA number, which is critical for
returning the Locator. Be sure to print the RMA number prominently
on the return packaging. Locators returned without an RMA number
cannot be processed as returns.

Safety Precautions
Personal Safety Precautions
‰ Do not install or operate a Locator in areas where explosive
atmospheres may be present.
‰ Do not install a Locator in any vehicle that is powered by liquefied
petroleum gas or governed by petrochemical regulations without
additional operational safety precautions being taken.
‰ Do not install a Locator near life support or other sensitive equipment
that may be affected by radio transmissions. If required, consult the
equipment manufacturer for guidance.
‰ During car and truck installations, we recommend that you block
vehicle tires to prevent roll-back during installation.
‰ Consult vehicle manufacturer guidelines regarding disconnecting the
vehicle battery or when making supplementary electrical
connections.
‰ Remove or cover any jewellery when working on live electrical
systems.
4-1
WebTech Wireless Inc.
Safety Precautions
Electrical Wiring Safety Precautions
Read these guidelines before preparing the harness.
‰ Before disconnecting a battery, understand the consequences to that
vehicle, e.g. which radio codes need to be available. Also, make sure
that you know the reset procedure for airbag systems, ECUs, etc.
‰ Don't test electrical circuits using a test lamp. Instead, use a high
impedance multi-meter with both voltage and resistance ranges.
‰ Don't tamper with or disconnect the air bag or SRS electrical harness.
Use appropriate pick-up points for power wiring
Important
Don't splice into individual lines going to other electrical devices that
exhibit substantial momentary voltage drops.
‰ For example, wires going to heating mirrors or to a vehicle's
charging indicator are especially susceptible to this.
If possible wire to a power bar or suitable common terminal connection
point.
‰ Use a multi-meter to confirm +12 V DC or +24 V DC (9 to 30 Volts)
power. Do not use a test lamp.
Battery connection (red wire)
‰ Make sure that there is uninterrupted power to the Locator when the
engine is being started (i.e., make sure that the supply voltage does
not fall below 9 V DC).
‰ Connect to a continuous +12 V DC or +24 V DC (9 to 30 Volts)
supply.
‰ Take from the secondary side of the main distribution fuse of the
vehicle battery. Do not share a fused supply to any other equipment.
‰ Fuse the line at source to provide protection against shorting of the
wiring harness. Note that the Locator is internally protected.
WebTech Wireless Inc.
4-2
WT7000E Locator Installation Guide
Negative ground (earth) connection (black wire)
‰ Always connect directly to a dedicated earth point within the vehicle’s
electrical system.
‰ Use a unique earth point.
‰ When required, create a suitable earth point where no corrosion
occurs. A duplicate connection with other systems could cause a
build up in contact resistance. Also, note that supply voltage
problems can occur, resulting in erratic Locator operation.
‰ Avoid earth points that also serve engine management ECU, ABS, or
air bag systems, etc.
Ignition connection (yellow wire)
Important
To prevent incorrect operation, make sure that power is not interrupted for
more than 5 seconds when the engine is started (supply voltage under
9Vdc).
‰ Connection to an ignition signal which goes positive +12 V DC or +24
V DC (9 to 30 Volts) when the key is in the run position and is
removed or goes to ground when the key is in the off position.
Solder connections
Important
Ring connectors are ONLY acceptable for a ground point and when
connecting to power bars with screws. No other crimp connectors are
acceptable.
‰ Wire should be fully inserted into the connector with insulation intact.
Don't leave bare wire exposed.
‰ If wires are combined, make sure that the connector can handle the
resulting gauge.
‰ Be sure to crimp the connectors properly using the correctly sized
crimp tool. Confirm that the physical connection is solid.
‰ Solder the wire to the crimped connection.
‰ Use toothed washers when bolting connectors to the vehicle. Make
sure that the ground connection is solid and reliable.
Make sure that the wiring is correct
It is critical that the ignition wire is connected to the vehicle ignition
wire and not connected to the battery
4-3
WebTech Wireless Inc.
Safety Precautions
Don't use quick taps
Vehicle vibrations eventually separate quick-tapped wires from the
Locator, causing a lost connection to the unit.
Quick taps also:
‰ Are not good for critical power supply connections.
‰ Cut into the connected wire, reducing the life of the wire and
reducing both its voltage and current-handling capabilities.
‰ Increase the risk of corrosion and crush-type wiring failures.
Don't leave cut wires exposed
‰ Check for accidentally cut wires. These can damage vehicle wiring or
devices; they can also cause a fire.
‰ Tape or heat-shrink all wire cuts so there is no risk of shorting or
corrosion.
‰ If a splice is necessary, strip-away a small portion of the insulation,
solder the wires, and reinsulate them using electrical tape.
‰ Don't leave free connector contacts or pins exposed. Tape or properly
terminate all connectors.
Route cables properly
‰ Never put cabling where it can be stepped on (e.g., under rugs).
‰ Never wire areas that retain moisture. For example, insulation under
a carpet holds water, which means that it can become damp. This
makes wiring connections highly susceptible to corrosion.
‰ Never put cable where either a passenger’s or a driver's feet could
rest on top of the wires.
‰ Never run the GPS antenna cable through the vehicle’s door to its
roof. The vehicle door will eventually sever the cable.
‰ Wherever possible secure the wiring in the wiring channel that is
provided by the vehicle manufacturer. Use split looms and grommets
where appropriate.
‰ Tie wrap and tape cables (or cable tie mounts) to keep secure.

Important
The battery connector protective cover must be removed in order for
the battery to function. Remove the battery connector protective
cover (see Figure B-2 for the location of the battery connector).
The battery connector protective cover is not obvious; it is small, black
like the connector, and appears to be part of the connector itself. The
protective cover is removed only if the battery connector contacts are fully
exposed; i.e., you can easily touch them with your finger.
4.
Align and attach the new bottom plate that contains the internal
battery to the circuit board. There is only one way that the two parts
can fit together.
5.
Screw the 4 screws back into the bottom plate.
6.
Connect the Locator to a power source, then wait 4 to 5 minutes until
the battery is charged to a level that lights the LED.
7.
Confirm operation by powering-up the Locator. If the battery is
correctly installed, the LED flutters orange at power up.

Appendix C
Installing a Locator with the Accelerometer
Option
The Accelerometer, which is available for the WT7000E, is used to
monitor driver behavior including excessive acceleration, hard braking,
and frequent lane changing.
Installing a Locator with Accelerometer
Important
For installations with the accelerometer, it is extremely important that the
Locator be securely attached to the vehicle chassis. If it is able to move
independently of the vehicle, the accelerometer reading will not be
reliable.
‰ During calibration, the Locator must be at or near room temperature
in order to calibrate properly. Store the accelerometer at room
temperature before installation, and perform the installation indoors
(in a bay) if possible.
‰ Ideally, mount the Locator to the vehicle using the mounting bracket
and screws. Attach the Locator to the mounting bracket, and secure it
in place using tie wraps. Then, attach the bracket to the vehicle using
a speedi-screw (or self-tapping sheet-metal screw) for each of the 4
Locator mounting holes. Be sure to consider the Locator orientation
(see below).
‰ Alternately, secure the Locator to the vehicle frame using tie wraps,
ensuring that it cannot shift in place.
WebTech Wireless Inc.
C-1
Installing a Locator with the Accelerometer Option
Locator Orientation
When using the accelerometer option, the Locator must be installed in a
particular orientation.
back (face 5)
left (face 2)
bottom (face 1)
The Locator must be installed so that one of the following three faces is
oriented forwards toward the front of the vehicle:
‰ The back of the Locator (face 5: the side opposite the logo)
‰ The left side of the Locator (face 2: the side with the antenna)
‰ The bottom of the Locator (face 1)
The Locator does not need to be perfectly oriented, but one or more of
these faces must be within 40° of facing forwards.
Calibrating the Accelerometer:
The calibration procedure has been greatly simplified since the
introduction of the accelerometer such that it occurs largely automatically.
However, you must start the process manaully, and you must be parked
to initialize the process. Before starting:
1.
Make sure that the Locator is securely affixed to the vehicle.
2.
Park the vehicle on a level surface.
3.
Make sure that WT7000E has been powered up.
4.
Ideally, the Locator should be at or near room temperature.
You may proceed with the calibration either by calling technical support,
or by using the Installation Test Tool.
WebTech Wireless Inc.
C-2
WT7000E Locator Installation Guide
Calibration using Technical Support
Phone Webtech Wireless technical support to perform a standard install
check, but make sure to mention that you are installing a Locator with the
Accelerometer option. Technical Support will initialize the calibration once
the install check is complete, at which point you can use the vehicle.
Calibration using the Installation Test Tool
If you have access to the installation test tool, you may use it to calibrate
the accelerometer yourself. See the Installation Test Tool documentation
for more information.
If Calibration Fails
Some possible reasons calibration could fail:
‰ Hard breaking during the calibration may produce vibrations that
confuse the accelerometer, particularly if the vehicle has anti-lock
breaks. Avoid hard breaking during calibration.
‰ Calibration may fail if you drive over a rough road, rumble strips,
potholes, or speed bump during the process. Ensure that the area
where you perform the calibration is level and relatively smooth.
‰ Excessive vibration during idling or while moving creates “noise” that
makes it difficult for the accelerometer to detect real movement. If the
vehicle vibrates noticably while the engine is on, this may be the
cause of failure. Talk to technical support if you think this is likely the
issue.

come from each sensor. Note that the sensors are dedicated to a
particular temperature zone within the vehicle at the point of
manufacturing. Each sensor is labelled with its zone number. Be sure to
install each sensor in its intended zone, as the sensor configuration
cannot be easily changed once it is shipped.
Appendix F
Installing JBUS J1587, CANBUS J1979 and J1939
The following sections describe how to install a Locator to interface with a
vehicle’s JBUS or CANBUS protocols.
What are JBUS and CANBUS?
JBUS J1587, CANBUS J1979, and CANBUS J1939 are vehicle
diagnostic communication protocols, a method by which a vehicle can
communicate their readings from their internal diagnostic systems. This
information is useful in diagnosing engine issues, tracking driving habits,
and scheduling preventative maintenance. JBUS and CANBUS protocols
are defined by number; the WT7000E Locator supports J1587, J1939,
and J1979. Note that vehicles may support multiple protocols as well.
Webtech Locators also support OBDII, a protocol commonly found in
smaller (consumer) vehicles. OBDII installation requires additional
hardware, and the process is covered elsewhere.
WebTech Wireless Inc.
F-1
WT7000E Locator Installation Guide
Determining what protocol a vehicle supports
Before installation, you must determine whether the installation is for
JBUS 1587, CANBUS 1979, or CANBUS 1939, as each protocol requires
a unique Locator configuration to support
General Guidelines
‰ JBUS J1587 is commonly found on North American heavy trucks
made before 2007.
‰ CANBUS J1979 is commonly found on North American light vehicles
made in 2008 or after, and in select European light vehicles.
‰ CANBUS J1939 is commonly found on North American heavy trucks
made in 2008 or after, and in select European heavy trucks.
Examining the Connector
The best way to determine what protocol a vehicle supports is to look at
the connector to the vehicle’s diagnostic system.
Light Vehicles
If you are examining a North American light vehicle (i.e., a consumer
vehicle, not a tractor), look for a J1962 OBDII connector, located
somewhere near the steering column, likely beneath the dashboard.
Figure F-8
J1962 OBDII connector
Examine the connector and determine if pins 6 and 14 are populated (that
is to say, if the holes contain metal contacts). If pins 6 and 14 are
populated, then the vehicle most likely supports CANBUS J1979.
Tractors and Heavy Trucks
If you are examining a North American class 8 tractor, look for a circular
Duetsch connector. The connector will be located in the cab, either to the
left of the steering column or behind the B-pillar. The connector will have
either 6 or 9 pins.
F-2
WebTech Wireless Inc.
Installing JBUS J1587, CANBUS J1979 and J1939
Figure F-9
6 and 9-pin Duetsch connectors
If the vehicle has a 6-pin connector, then the vehicle supports JBUS
J1587. If the vehicle has a 9-pin connector, then the vehicle likely
supports both JBUS J1587 and CANBUS J1939. To confirm, check which
pins are populated (you may have to look at the back of the connector). If
pins F and G are populated, JBUS J1587 is supported. If pins C and D
are populated, CANBUS J1939 is supported.
Installing JBUS J1587
The following describes how to locate the JBus data wires necessary for
splicing into the existing wires.
Important
When installing JBUS or CANBUS, you must ensure that the vehicle
ignition is turned off. Failure to turn off the ignition during installation can
damage the hardware.
Installation procedure
1.
Locate the 6 or 9-pin Duetsch connector and get access to the
vehicle wires leading into the connector.
2.
Use tables F-5 and F-6 on page 4 to determine which two vehicle
wires must be connected to leads on the Locator cable.
3.
Without disconnecting them from the Duetsch connector, strip a one
half inch section of insulation from each of the two vehicle wires.
4.
Strip one half inch of insulation from the ends of the Locator cable’s
CAN_H/JBUS+ and CAN_L/JBUS- leads.
5.
Wrap the stripped CAN_H/JBUS+ and CAN_L/JBUS- leads around
the appropriate vehicle wire (consult tables F-5 and F-6 as needed).

Pairing a Bluetooth Device to the Locator
Issuing commands to the Locator
In order to pair and unpair Bluetooth devices with the Locator you must
issue commands directly to the Locator. There are two ways of doing this:
‰ Issue the commands using OTA command messages in the
Quadrant messaging interface
‰ Connect the Locator to a computer via direct serial connection and
issue the commands using a TTY interface such as HyperTerminal.
As a TTY interface provides more feedback, we recommend that you use
TTY rather than OTA.
Note
You cannot use the MDT to issue commands to the Locator.
Using HyperTerminal
While any TTY interface should be able to issue commands to the
Locator, the following instructions are specific to HyperTerminal and
assume you have not run HyperTerminal on this machine previously. If
you have run HyperTerminal before, some of the warnings and prompts
may not appear.

Pairing a Bluetooth Device to the Locator
Bluetooth Pairing and Unpairing
Step 1. Starting Bluetooth Service
Depending on its configuration, your Locator may not have Bluetooth
service enabled. Before any Bluetooth devices may be connected, you
must start this service. Enter the following command:
% service btsvc start
HyperTerminal should reply “Service Starting...” followed by a command
prompt. If an error is returned, then the Bluetooth service has not been
purchased for this Locator; contact technical support.
Step 2. Determining the device's bdaddress
For the Locator to pair with a Bluetooth devices, you must determine the
bdAddress of the device. This is essentially the device’s unique identifier,
which is required to connect to the device.
1.
Power up the Bluetooth device and place it in “search” mode. The
device must not be currently paired and connected with another
Locator or other Bluetooth device.
2.
While the Bluetooth device is in “search” mode, enter the following
command to the Locator and start a scan:
% btscan start
3.
Scanning takes a little time, so wait a bit (ten seconds or more) before
checking the results. To check the results of the scan, enter the
command:
% btscan
If the scan is still busy, HyperTerminal will reply Busy; wait a while
longer and try again. Otherwise the reply will list any Bluetooth
devices (up to twenty) that the scan detected. For example:
Found 3 devices.
[00:16:74:4f:2f:60] [Audio Headset]
[00:05:4f:72:8c:a6] [Audio Hands-free] nuvi 2x5
#3550664741
[00:18:0f:16:3d:fb] [Cellphone] Nokia 6126
The reply provides the name, type, and bdaddress for all detected
devices. Determine the address of the device you want to connect to and
write it down. When entering this address into commands, enter it as
shown in the example reply (six pairs of digits separated by colons). The
square brackets are not part of the bdaddress.
WebTech Wireless Inc.
G-3
WT7000/7000E Locator Installation Guide
Step 3. Pairing the device
Once you know the device’s bdaddress, the device may be paired to the
WT7000E to enable phone calls.
Note
If you are replacing an existing hands-free kit or other Bluetooth device,
you must un-pair the existing device before you can pair the new one.
See "Unpairing an existing device" on page G-4.
1.
Put the Bluetooth device in pairing mode. How this is done depends
on the device.
2.
Put the Locator in pairing mode:
a. If you are pairing the Locator with a handsfree car kit, enter the
command:
% btpairhs pair <bdAddress>
b. For all other devices, use the command:
% btpair pair <bdAddress>
The device will give some response that indicates if pairing was
successful. HyperTerminal will respond:
Paired with <bdAddress> ok.
Unpairing an existing device
If you are replacing an existing Bluetooth device, you must un-pair the
existing device before you can pair the new one.
1.
Find out the existing device’s bdAddress.
‰ If you have the existing device, you can determine it’s bdAddress
using the instructions shown in "Determining the device's
bdaddress" on page G-3.
‰ Alternately, you may view a list of all devices paired to the
WT7000E by entering the following command:
% btpair list
HyperTerminal lists the addresses of all paired devices.
2.
To unpair the device, enter the command:
% btpair unpair <bdAddress>

Installing the 1-Wire I/O Board
The 1-Wire I/O Board is an accessory that adds four inputs and four
outputs to the Locator, increasing the total to six inputs and outputs.
These new inputs and outputs may be used for telemetry connections just
like those on the standard cable harness.
The 1-Wire I/O Board may be installed even if the Locator already has
another 1-wire device installed. The Locator’s 1-wire port can support
multiple 1-wire devices simultaneously. However, you may only connect a
single 1-Wire I/O Board at any given time.
Figure H-10 1-Wire I/O Board
Voltage requirements for telemetry connections:
When you connect the I/O Board’s inputs or outputs to any vehicle
system, keep the following in mind:
‰ When turned on, telemetry outputs provide a low (or ground)
connection.
‰ For inputs 8 and 9, an input of less than +0.06 V (for low) or greater
than +3.32V (for high) will change the state of a telemetry input.
‰ For inputs 6 and 7, an input of less than +0.59 V (for low) or greater
than +2.06V (for high) will change the state of a telemetry input.
Installation
Connecting 1-Wire I/O Board to the Locator:
1.
On the WT7000E cable harness, locate the 1-WIRE lead (black with
white stripe), the +5V lead (red with white stripe), and Ground lead
WebTech Wireless Inc.

WT7000E Locator Installation Guide
(black). There are two Ground leads; both are identical electrically, so
use whichever one is more convenient.
2.
Three cables extend from the 1-Wire I/O Board. One cable has only
three leads: 1-wire (white with black stripe), +5V (red with white
stripe), and Ground (black). Connect these to the Locator 1-WIRE,
+5V, and Ground leads. Solder and insulate the connections.
Connecting the 1-Wire I/O Board to the vehicle
The inputs and outputs are connected to vehicle systems requiring
telemetry. How they are connected depends on the vehicle system, but
the following hold true in any case:
‰ Each cable extending for the 1-Wire I/O Board has a black Ground
lead to be used to provide a base state (Low state). All Ground leads
are electrically identical.
‰ Ensure that you are connecting the correct input or output to the
vehicle system, as Quadrant will be already set up to monitor/control
that particular lead. If you received no specific instructions as to
which input or output to use, be sure to note which one you connect.

Installing a Locator with the Garmin Nüvi Option
Installation Procedure
Select a location for the Garmin Nüvi
Select a location for the Garmin Nüvi. Ensure that the Nüvi will be easily
visible and within reach of the driver. Keep in mind that the custom cable
has to be run from the Locator to the back of the Garmin.
Wire the lower half of the custom cable
The lower half of the custom cable is meant to concealed beneath the
dashboard, invisible to the driver.
1.
Plug the custom cable’s lower half DB9 connector into the WT7000E
primary serial port. Secure connection using the connector thumb
screws. If there are no thumb screws for whatever reason, secure the
connection using a pair of tie wraps in an X pattern around the
Locator.
2.
Solder the custom cable red wire to the vehicle ignition. Ensure that
the soldered connection is well soldered, not dry soldered. Insulate
the connection with Shrink tubing or electrical tape, and secure the
tape with a tie wrap.
Make sure that the red wire is connected to the vehicle true ignition
wire. Use a multimeter to test the vehicle ignition; a true ignition
wire reads 12V throughout the crank, but 0V while the ignition is
off. Check that the ignition wire voltage remains constant
regardless whether the vehicle is in gear or not.
3.
Connect the custom cable black wire to the vehicle ground using one
of the following methods:
a. Splice the custom cable black wire to the Locator ground wire
already connected to the vehicle ground. Ensure that the soldered
connection is well soldered, not dry soldered. Insulate the connection with electrical tape or shrink wrap, and secure the tape with a
tie wrap.
b. Add a ring terminal to the end of the custom cable black wire.
Secure the ring terminal to the vehicle frame using an existing
bolt, or use a self-tapping screw to secure it to a new location.
Route the upper half of the custom cable
1.
Route the upper half of the custom cable through or around the
dashboard. The USB connector must reach the theoretical location of
the Garmin Nüvi, and the Molex connector reaches the lower half’s
Molex connector.
