Getting started with MiX Now could not be easier. The device simply plugs into a vehicle’s on-board diagnostics port – you don’t need any special tools or accessories, so you can do it all yourself without the help of a professional installer!
Four simple steps
You have subscribed to MiX Now and can now access the web interface and download the mobile application free.
Follow these four simple steps to link your vehicle to your device.
Add a vehicle
You can add a vehicle using the web interface or via the mobile app. On the web interface, you will click the green + button on the Vehicles screen that you find by clicking Manage fleet on the menu to the left. The added vehicles are then displayed on the mobile app after logging in.
If you prefer adding vehicles on the mobile app, simply log into the mobile app with the username and password you created when signing up, tap the + in the top right-hand corner on the Fleet Overview page as shown below:
Locate your onboard diagnostics port
Check the area around your dashboard, the port is typically installed within three feet of the driver and looks like this:
Scan the QR code
Log into the mobile application. On the vehicle tab in the fleet overview screen, you will see a list of the vehicles that have been added (either on the web interface or by using the mobile application). Choose the vehicle that you would like to link to the specific device and tap REGISTER DEVICE as shown below:
You also have the option of linking your device right after you have added it in the mobile application. Simply select Yes after saving:
On the device registration screen, you can either enter the IMEI number (a 15-digit number that uniquely identifies your device) or scan the QR code by clicking the scan button as shown below:
You can now scan the QR code that you will find on the box of your device. See below for an illustration:
The IMEI number will be populated and you simply need to click Register.
You can also enter the IMEI number manually on the web interface. Read more here.
Plug the device into the port
Now simply plug the device into your onboard diagnostics port. Push to ensure it is connected securely:
Turn on the ignition and start driving to complete the installation process.
If you have accidentally plugged the wrong device into a vehicle or sold your vehicle and bought a new one, simply plug the device into the new vehicle, link the IMEI number to this new relevant vehicle (by scanning the QR code or by manually entering it) and start driving!
