All Vermeer device serial numbers start with “DR”.
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.
! IMPORTANT: To update an OEMor third party serial number, the older OEM device must be terminated in MyAdmin, and unplugged in MyGeotab using the Unplug device > Keep Active option. Once unplugged, the new OEM serial number can be added on the asset page using Add device > Save new asset option.

Billing stops as soon as a device is terminated. To ensure complete termination, remove the device from the MyGeotab database or make it historic.
No, the VIN associated with an OEM serial number cannot be changed. If you want to make such changes, terminate the old device and repeat the procedure in Step 2 and Step 3 to register and add a new device.
