Navistream Installation Guide
NaviLink3 Hardware set-up
UNPLUG and TURN OFF the Navistream tablet.
GENTLY insert the cable connector into the NaviLink device with the pins aligned and at a straight angle.
When fully inserted, the latch will lock.
Note: Rough or improper handling can lead to damage and is not covered by warranty.
DO NOT pair the NaviLink to Bluetooth with any device (i.e. your phone). Navistream will automatically establish the connection.
TURN OFF the vehicle.
PLUG In the cable attached to the Navilink into the applicable vehicle port.
Note: ALWAYS use the vehicle's dedicated Telematics/ELD port if available for your vehicle. It'll typically be an RP-1226 (as shown below) or OBDII connector type. For more information, please contact our Support Desk
VERIFY a slow flashing green LED appears indicating that the device is powered. Also verify a flashing orange LED appears indicating that the internal GPS is in acquisition mode.
Note: a solid orange LED indicates that the signal is locked, but you can proceed to the next step without waiting for GPS lock.
TURN ON the vehicle's engine.
VERIFY the green LED becomes solid.
Note: that for power management reasons, the LEDs may not stay on all the time.
TURN OFF the vehicle's engine.
Securely fasten the NaviLink and cable away from the driver and vehicle controls so that it in no way interferes with the vehicle's operation.
