Commercial Vehicle Productivity and Security
The 6601 is a versatile and economical GPS tracking beacon designed
for fleet management needs in all commercial vehicles. The 6601
connects directly to the vehicle’s Electronic Control Module (ECM)
through the engine diagnostics port.
The beacon forms the on-board recording portion of Contigo's
compliant Electronic Logging Device (ELD) solution for Hours of Service
(HOS) and Driver-Vehicle Inspection Report (DVIR) logging, by supplying
all required data via Bluetooth to the ELD display.
Combined with our commercial mobile monitoring portal, subscribers
can manage and view the location of any or all vehicles in a fleet, run
a variety of valuable reports, and manage vehicle maintenance alerts.
Installation Notes
The Contigo 6601 is supplied with a cable to connect the device to the vehicle data port. Different vehicles
support different types of data ports. The 6601 supports the following port configurations:

J1939 Deutsch Type-1 (9-pin – black)

J1939 Deutsch Type-2 (9-pin – green)

J1708 Deutsch (6-pin)

OBDII with CAN support
Most vehicles support the J1939 Type-1 connector.
The images and wiring charts in this document
represent this cable choice. If your vehicle requires
a different connector cable, or you are unsure
which cable is required, please contact Contigo
Support for assistance.
Begin the installation by firmly pressing the 20 pin
Molex connector onto the 6601, as shown in the
picture.
Next, locate the diagnostics port on the vehicle, and with the vehicle ignition
turned off, connect the cable. The cable connector has a locking ring. To lock the
cable in place turn the dial clockwise until it clicks.
Once the vehicle ignition is turned on, the LED indicators will show the state of the
device. Please refer to the LED Indicators section below.
Securing the 6601

Use zip-ties to secure the beacon in place. There are convenient slots in the case to assist with this. The
6601 should be located where it will receive a good GPS signal, ideally underneath the front windshield
glass or beneath the dashboard. It is important that the top face of the beacon (the side with the large
label) is facing the sky with no metallic obstruction.

Ensure any extra wire is secured and is not obstructing any vehicle controls.

Visibility of the indicator LEDs will be useful for testing and troubleshooting.
Wiring Optional Add-ons
Depending on the type of add-ons to be supported for the installation, colored connector wires may be required
in addition to the base J1939 cable. These wires will be attached directly to the 20-pin Molex connector, outside
of the J1939 wire bundle, as shown in the diagram below.
To ensure that the correct connections are in place, please refer to the appropriate Feature Installation Guide
from Contigo when wiring add-ons.

LED Indicators
The Contigo 6601 has two LEDs on the front of the device which provide feedback about the current state.

When the ignition is first turned on the Green indicator will show solid for about 30 seconds. After this initial
setup period, the Green LED will blink slowly (8 times in 10 seconds) when the Ignition is turned off, and
rapidly (25 times in 10 seconds) when the Ignition is turned on.

The Red LED is used to indicate error conditions by flashing a 2-digit code. The first digit indicates the
general error type (1=hardware, 2=modem, 3=GPS, 4=end-to-end service) and the second digit indicates
a more specific error described in the table below. Note that if multiple error conditions exist, the Red LED
will cycle through all current error conditions.

Warnings and Known Issues

It is important that the cable is installed fully onto the diagnostics port, and that the device is firmly
attached to the vehicle. Excessive vibrations from a loose installation can cause incorrect results.

The Contigo 6601 is not a waterproof or sealed device. Care must be taken to ensure the device is kept
away from water or any other liquids.

The Contigo 6601 may be incompatible with certain models of vehicles. For more information please
contact your Contigo dealer.
