Installation Instructions
Start with the Geotab GO6™ device unplugged from the vehicle. Remove the
blue IOX™ expansion port cover from the GO6™ and plug the 90° USB
connector of the IOX™ into the port. Secure the USB connector using a zip
tie, being careful not to over tighten it, damaging the USB.
Note: The USB can only be inserted in one orientation (shown in image).
Locate an appropriate spot to mount the NFC reader within safe reach of the
driver and where it will not interfere with the safe operation of the vehicle.
Keep the routing of the wiring harness in mind while choosing a location for
the reader.
The NFC reader comes with a convenient mounting bracket that can either be
screwed in place (screws provided) or taped in place (tape provided).
The reader itself is then snapped into the bracket. When using tape, ensure
the mounting surface is at least 65 °F, and thoroughly clean and dry the area.
Once the tape is applied to the surface, hold firmly in place for 60 seconds to
allow proper bonding to occur.
Once your connections to the IOX-NFC have been made, connect the GO6™
to the vehicles OBDII connector.
Tag verification:
To test the NFC installation touch a valid NFC tag to the reader - the Green
LED on the reader will flash twice when the tag is read. For additional tags
touch each tag one at a time to the reader - the LED will flash twice for each
tag read.
Once an immobilization relay kit has been installed and the feature activated
in MyGeotab you must touch a valid ID tag in order to start the vehicle.
Failure to touch a valid tag prior to starting will cause the GO6™ to beep
continuously and the vehicle will not start until a valid tag is touched.
After a failed attempt the NFC resets (stops beeping) in about 30 seconds.
Allow the vehicle to run until each of the LEDs on the GO6™ (RED, GREEN
and BLUE) have illuminated. Keep in mind your GO6™ will now be in debug
mode for two ignition cycles.
Using a PC or Smart phone that has internet access, navigate to
Fill in your name, email address, and the Geotab serial number and click on
You will now see a screen similar to this with GREEN lettering. This indicates
your installation was successfully completed. Should the test appear in RED
you must verify the installation.

Immobilization & Driver feedback
This section is only required if you are installing an immobilizer relay kit along with your IOX-NFC.
Prior to the installation you must go to the MyGeotab database where the device is registered, select
“Vehicles”, then the device you are installing. Next, select “Driver Feedback” and set “Enable driver
identification reminder” to ON (see below).
If this feature is not turned on the immobiliser option will not function correctly.
IOX-NFC has a junction box that has a two pin connector. This is where the immobilization harness
adapter gets plugged in. Immobilization harness adapter is now included in the HRN-RELAYKIT.
The small black connector end of the adapter gets plugged into IOX-NFC. The other white two pin
connector fits into the HRN-RELAYKIT. The fused wire coming from the adapter must be connected to
a true ignition source (a true ignition source is live in the ACC RUN and CRANK positions). Use the
installation instructions contained in the HRN-RELAYKIT to complete the installation.
Connecting additional IOX™’s to an IOX-NFC
When connecting additional IOX™’s to an IOX-NFC, it is important to be sure the USB connector is
seated correctly and completely. Lastly it must be secured with a zip tie.

Termination Shunt
You may notice your IOX™ comes with a termination shunt installed in the expansion port. If you are
installing more than one IOX™ in a daisy chain you will need to remove the shunt from each device in
line with the exception of the “LAST” IOX™ connected. That shunt must remain in the last IOX™ and
should be secured with a zip tie.
The use of the shunt in the LAST IOX™ is necessary for the GO6™ to learn and configure the IOX™ as
effectively as possible.
Note: Failing to install the shunt in the last IOX™ could affect IOX™ configuration, it is recommended
you secure the shunt using a zip tie if not already done.
