Congratulations on choosing the SweTrack Extreme - our most powerful GPS tracker ever! The SweTrack Extreme allows you to keep track of vehicles, cargo shipments and other valuable goods. Before you get started using your product, you need to go through a quick installation procedure. This article describes what you need to do.

SIM Card Prerequisites
In order to communicate with you and transmit location data to the Live Tracking server, the SweTrack Extreme requires a valid SIM card. To enjoy full functionality, your SIM card must have support for both data and SMS messaging. Please note that the SweTrack Extreme does not support 3G/4G SIM cards - this means that the SIM card you're using must be from a carrier with a 2G/GSM network. If there is a PIN code on your SIM card, this should be disabled before installing the SIM card in your SweTrack Extreme as there's no way to input the PIN code on the SweTrack Extreme - this can be done by inserting the SIM card into a cellphone and using the on-screen menus to disable the PIN code. The SweTrack Extreme uses Standard-sized SIM cards.

Charging the battery
Before commencing use of the device, we recommend that you charge the battery for at least 12 hours uninterruped. Use only the supplied Micro USB cable to charge the device. The Micro USB cable can be plugged into any standard USB wall charger, such as the ones commonly included with smartphones and tablets. You can also charge your device through a computer's USB port, however, this will prolong the charging time significantly.

Installing the SIM Card
Open the rubber cover on the device's side and insert the SIM card as illustrated by the sticker on the bottom of the device.

Powering on the device
Once you've followed the steps above and installed the SIM card, your device will power on automatically. To power off the device, either remove the SIM card or press the blue button 10 times. Your device will automatically power on whenever a SIM card is inserted into the SIM card slot.

Your SweTrack Extreme is now ready for use. We recommend that you go through the other articles in the Knowledge Base in order to get the most of your new device. Good luck!
