Step-by-step guide


Get fleet admin credentials

If you’re managing the entire Vehicle Gateway installation process, you’ll need to be set up as a fleet admin in your company’s Motive Fleet Dashboard. A fleet admin can help you attain these credentials.

Note: If you are simply installing a Vehicle Gateway on behalf of a company, please skip to Step 6. A designated fleet admin at the company will need to handle Steps 2 through 5.


Add a vehicle

Once you’ve logged into the Fleet Dashboard, go to the Admin section to add a new vehicle.


Create a vehicle profile

Add the serial number printed on the back of the Vehicle Gateway to the vehicle’s profile.


Create a driver profile

In the Admin section of the Fleet Dashboard, create a new driver profile.


Share driver credentials

Share the driver login credentials with the individual who will be installing the Vehicle Gateway hardware.


Connect the Vehicle Gateway

Plug the provided cable into your vehicle’s diagnostic port.


Start your engine

Once the left-side LED turns green, your Vehicle Gateway is powered and connected!


Download the Motive Driver App

Log in with your driver account credentials from Step 5.


Pair your mobile device

Follow the app’s instructions to pair your mobile device with the Vehicle Gateway.
