  2. Select Car Bluetooth : check the Bluetooth devices that you would like to trigger auto start. The list of devices are the ones you've already paired before.

  3. Link Bluetooth Devices to Vehicles : Select the Device that you have connected and select a vehicle to apply your trips to.

  4. Configuring the Speed Threshold : Choose the threshold for tracking to start ( Start Immediately available on Android Only

  5. Timeout : Determine the timeout value for the AutoStart. This value will determine how long the process will monitor movement after the Bluetooth connection occurs. (eg When starting the car the app will wait the timeout for you to drive before stopping the monitoring. If you regularly warm/cool the vehicle before driving or process paperwork in the car then extend this timeout)
