Auto 424 – Getting Started Instructions

The Auto 424 is one of the most low-maintenance trackers available.

Installation

Your tracker is shipped ready-to-install into your car’s OBD2 port. This is typically in the driver area of the car, often under the steering wheel.

After you plug your tracker into your car’s OBD2 port, allow a few minutes to find a signal to report your location.

Once installed and the vehicle is powered on, you will see LED lights flash. These lights can be disabled as a command from the app.

Downloading the App

  1. Download the “Logistimatics” app:
    1. For Android from the Google Play Store
    2. For iPhone from the App Store
    3. For a web browser, go to gps.logistimatics.com
  2. Tap install. You may need to enter your Google Play or Apple ID password to download the app. If you have not installed an app before, you will be asked by Google or Apple to enter your credit card information.
  3. Once installed, open the app and login with the same email and password you used when purchasing the device.

How it Works

When the car is moving, the tracker will report its location every 30 seconds. To check this, simply log into the tracking app for the current location of the vehicle and its previous locations in the last hour / day / week.

The tracker can report its position in two ways: a precise GPS location and an approximate location based on nearby cell tower.

These positions are indicated by a white pin (a precise GPS location) and a large blue circle (cell fix) showing the approximate location. If the Auto 424 cannot get a clear signal for a GPS fix, it will report an approximate location.

What Reporting Looks Like

A. 24hr tracking at 30 second reporting

This shows you all the tracking for the day at 30 second reporting

B. 30 second reporting in hour view

30 second tracking is useful for exact traces as a car travels

C. Cell fix

A cell fix gives only an approximate location when GPS reporting is turned off or the Auto 424 cannot get a clear signal

Note that your tracker can be unplugged from one car and moved to another. This will not affect the tracker or the settings.
