The CA1150 Wired Vehicle Tracker has 2 LEDs and ESN Code on the sticker. If your device has 3 LEDs and no ESN, please review the AL11 Vehicle Model.

If the ESN begins with “127” this is an LTE Vehicle Tracker.

If the ESN begins with “136” or “216” this is a 3G Vehicle Tracker and is no longer viable in the US.

If the ESN begins with “213” this is a 2G Vehicle Tracker and is no longer viable in the US.
