Owl Dashcam - User Manual
To prepare for the installation you will need the following:
Review product and parts: Your package should include the device with wiring harness.
Research your vehicle wiring diagram for the location of the Ignition sense location, check your owner’s manual or look it up online
Gather needed tools, including screwdrivers, wire strippers and cutters, crimping tool, voltmeter, zip ties and Velcro strips. If you do not have the tools or the experience, we highly recommend that you let a professional do the installation of your GPS Tracker.
If you need assistance installing your device you can contact a local mechanic or a car radio installer like Best Buy.
The red wire will need to be connected to a constant +12V source. This can easily be located under the dash; fuse panels are good places to start, as well as the thicker gauge wires.
The black wire will need to be connected to a solid ground or negative battery terminal. Always use a bolt directly connected to the chassis to ensure a good ground. Using smaller bolts connected to secondary frames will result in occasional power loss.
The yellow wire will need to be connected to an ignition source (Something that requires +12V when the vehicle is on and 0V when the vehicle is off). Verify the ignition wire by measuring the operating voltage while the key is turned to the on or start position (the voltage should read 0 vdc when the key is in the off position, and between 11V and 14V when in the on position.
Note: Be sure to wrap the positive and negative connections with electric tape after wires are connected.
The GPS cable will need to be connected to the included external GPS antenna. The GPS signal will penetrate glass, plastic, foam, fiberglass, and wood, but will not penetrate metal (so never place it under the hood of a car).
Use the included double-sided tape to secure the Dashcam onto your window. We suggest placing it to the right of your rear-view mirror but can be placed anywhere you prefer.
All optional connections are for more complex installations and not for a typical installation.
Use the included DC to DC power adapter if your input voltage is greater than 15VDC. It will provide output voltage of 12VDC.
