8) I installed my module and it won't pick up my current location. Why?
Your module relies on GPS to determine vehicle location. Location accuracy is subject to GPS accuracy, which means that it could take minutes for a first-time position to be available and it may not work inside of garages or in other structures. It may also be possible that the location in the vehicle where the module is installed may create a weak GPS signal and use of an extension cable may be necessary to relocate the module to a better location for GPS reception.
9) How do I add an additional module to my account?
If the second module is on an account that you have used, first remove the module from that account using the Remove feature. Then, log in to your account and use the Add Module feature under Settings --> Account Settings --> Manage Module, to add the additional module.
10) If I have multiple modules on one account, how can I see the data from my other vehicles?
On an iPhone, you can select a different vehicle by tapping on the vehicle icon in the upper right hand corner. On an Android device, you can select a different vehicle by tapping on the vehicle name at the top of the screen. On the website, you can select a different vehicle by clicking on the drop down arrow located to the right of your vehicle name at the top of the screen.
