Caring for your XGPS160 

  • XGPS160 IS NOT WATERPROOF!! A few drops won't hurt, but do not power-wash or allow sustained exposure to water.
  • Charge device regularly - Make sure it is powered off before connecting it to the charger for long periods. This will extend your battery life.

3. Mounting the XGPS160

  • Ideal mounting locations for the XGPS160 are the top of your helmet or on the front fender, use the black 3M velcro mounting strips included in your kit
    • IMPORTANT TIP: Clean the mounting surface with 95% rubbing alcohol, contact cleaner, or an equivalent before applying the velcro mounting strip. This will ensure good adhesion. If you fail to do this, it's likely the XGPS160 will fall off, get damaged, or be lost.
  • Remove the adhesive backing and place the velcro on your helmet or fender. Wait 15 min before riding to ensure a good adhesive bond
