T-Harness for OBD plug
The T-Harness for the Geotab GO9 tracking device is used to extend the placement of the Geotab GO tracking device. The harness moves the GO device out of the way of the driver and will be required on vehicles where the engine diagnostics port (OBD II) is located in an area that could cause the Geotab GO tracking device to disturb the driver.
It can also be used for vehicles, where the OBD location is in a difficult spot preventing the GO device from properly connecting.
Furthermore, the T-harness allows mechanics to insert an engine diagnostics scanner, as one port remains open.
