Once your device has been fully charged (the red light on the device will stop blinking and will remain on – this typically takes at least 8 hours), press the red button on the top of the device and hold for at least 5 seconds. The green light on the front of the device should flash for 3 seconds. It's vital for collaboration purposes that you allow the device to receive its first GPS signal before activating. To do this, place your device outside in an open area with strong cellular service and a clear, unobstructed, southwest view of the sky (satellite location). Wait at least 15 minutes, failure to do this will result incorrect location information. Now you are ready to activate you device using you PC (not smartphone).
