Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Managing Hino Devices

How do I identify Hino devices in MyAdmin?

You can see your Hino devices in MyAdmin under Devices > Device Management. Hino devices’ serial numbers start with “FV”.

Can I use the ‘Replace with new device’ function in MyGeotab?

GO devices can be replaced by OEM devices by using the Replace with new device option in MyGeotab. The Replace with new device option can only be used when moving from a GO device to an OEM device, it cannot be used to replace an OEM or third party device with a new OEM device.

Billing stops as soon as a device is terminated. To ensure complete termination, remove the device from the MyGeotab database or make it historic.

Can I reactivate terminated devices?

Terminated OEM serial numbers cannot be used again. To reactivate a vehicle, please repeat the procedure in Step 1 and Step 2 to register and add a new device.

Does standard Geotab Warranty or RMA Policy apply to Hino devices?
