Bolt Placement

Modified on Mon, 07 Oct 2019 at 12:09 PM

One of the most common questions we get is "Where do I place the device"? Follow the guide below and you should have no problem tracking your Bolt.

General Guidelines:

  1. Never wrap the Bolt in foil, or any other metal material. This will severely limit or eliminate GPS and cellular signals required for operation.
  2. Avoid placing the Bolt in an area completely surrounded in metal. 
  3. Do not submerge the Bolt in water or any other liquid.
  4. Place on a flat metal surface, rounded or jagged surfaces may significantly reduce the strength of the magnets. 

Vehicle Installation:

  1. Do not place Bolt in an area where the front side (side LED light and label) is in direct contact or close proximity to metal.
  2. Do not place within two feet of any vehicle exhaust components, engine components, or moving parts. This may permanently damage the Bolt.
  3. Place the Bolt in a location where the front side (side with LED light and label) is facing either the ground, or the side of the vehicle.
  4. Do not place the Bolt in an area where the front of the device is facing up toward the vehicle.
