Install the C4evo

This page has been updated on the 11 April 2011.

Insert the SIM card

Caution: Disable the SIM security (pin code) with a cell phone before using it with the C4evo.

1. Remove the back cover
2. Place the SIM card
3. Push the SIM forward



Note: Make sure the gold contacts of the SIM card are face down. Then gently slide the SIM card completely into the holder. The angled corner of the SIM card should be inserted as shown. Improperly inserting the SIM will result in the C4-D not recognising the SIM card.

Where to place

GPS antenna

The GPS antenna must be mounted on a location with a clear line of sight. Best results are usually obtained by mounting it outside but if you opt for interior mounting beware of electromagnetic interference and metallic parts. For instance it can be mounted in the dash or the “A” pillar panel.

Note: Do not place the GPS antenna in/on the dash if the vehicle has a solar reflective wind shield.

C4evo

The best location for the C4-D is inside the dashboard or embedded in the console area so as to make it as inaccessible to thieves as possible.

Connection steps

We recommend you connect the device directly to the external power supply and to add a fuse (2A) on the permanent positive.

  1. Connect the black wire (black wrapper) to the Ground.
  2. Connect the red wire (black wrapper) to the 12/24V DC power.
  3. Connect the white wire (black wrapper ) to the ignition.
  4. Tape and insulate any loose unconnected wires.

Caution

  • Turn car ignition off before making connections.
  • Inputs 2 and 3 must be free.
  • Use a common ground point for all ground wires.
  • Define the best wiring if a circuit breaker is installed.
  • Tape and insulate the GPS antenna connector.
