Geotab GO7 Telematics Device
0 mins to read•
Learn more about the features and technical specifications of the Geotab GO7 device, including GPS technology, g-force monitoring, Geotab IOX expandability, and engine and battery health assessments.
GO7 is a small yet extremely powerful telematics measurement tool. Similar to the GO6® before it, the GO7 offers state-of-the-art GPS technology, g-force monitoring, GEOTAB IOX® expandability, and engine and battery health assessments.
Using Geotab’s patented tracking algorithm, the GO7 accurately recreates a vehicle’s trips and analyzes its incidents. Moreover, the GO7 offers in-vehicle alerts to instantly notify drivers of infractions and — with hardware Add-Ons — the ability to provide live coaching to drivers relating to their on-road performance. The GO7 is simple to install and does not require a dash-mounted antenna or any splicing of wires.
Geotab platform security is designed for end-to-end protection of your data.
Key implementations include:
GO7 3G (availability varying on certification - full list of supported countries here)
Global (available in select regions)
GO7 2G Discontinued
GSM/GPRS: 850/900/1800/1900 MHz
GO7 CDMA Discontinued

Driver Feedback: Harsh braking, harsh acceleration, harsh corners, over-revving, excessive idling and speeding, engine-based seatbelt violations (when available), and custom rules (with Driver Feedback enabled)
Test Mode: Diagnostic beeps for validating GPS and wireless connection
Curve-based voltage logging to detect weak batteries, failing alternators, and failing starters.
32-Mb Non-volatile Flash Memory
Main Data Memory: Up to 80,000 logs in offline mode (out of coverage)
Accident Data Memory: Buffer records over 100 minutes of second-by-second data
(6,000 logs). Last 72 records (1.2 minutes) are sent instantly on accelerometer-triggered accident-level events
Patented curve-based GPS/voltage/accelerometer/engine data logging algorithm for fewer, more accurate data points.
Non-engine-based ignition detect on voltage and movement, allowing for 3-wire installation. Ideal for older vehicles with no engine information and covert installation for asset recovery.
Before installing your device, please record your device serial number. You will need this information at a later time to verify your installation.
WARNING! Prior to GO™ installation, read and follow important safety information including limitations of use located following these installation instructions. Always read and follow all safety information to prevent loss of vehicle control and serious injury.
WARNING! Some installations are not straightforward and must be completed by an Authorized Geotab Installer to ensure a secure installation. An unsecure device installation can cause poor electric and/or data connection that can lead to short circuits and fires or cause malfunctions of vehicle controls that can result in serious personal injury or significant damage to your vehicle. Some examples requiring professional installation from an Authorized Geotab Installer are:
WARNING! Do not attempt to install, reconfigure, or remove any product from a vehicle while the vehicle is in motion or otherwise in operation. All installation, configuration, or removal must be done only in stationary vehicles which are securely parked. Attempting to service devices while the vehicle is in motion could result in malfunctions or accidents, leading to death or serious personal injury.
Note: Heavy-duty vehicles use a different connector system. Contact your Authorized Geotab Reseller for heavy-duty connector applications or for extension harnesses should it be necessary to place your device away from the engine diagnostic port.
When performing under-dash installations with an extension harness, it is important to be aware of the type of device you are installing (GO6 vs. GO7). Make sure the antenna side is always pointing upwards towards the sky for faster GPS latch times.
The GPS antenna in a GO6 is located on the top side of the device.
The GPS antenna in a GO7 is located on the bottom side of the device.
Fill in your name, company, and the Geotab GO device serial number (found at the bottom of the device) and click on Log Install.
WARNING! All in-vehicle devices and related cabling must be securely fastened and kept clear of all vehicle controls, including gas, brake and clutch pedals. This requires the use of a cable tie when securing the device or any extension harness to the OBD connector, securing both sides of the harness. If you do not use a cable tie, vibration in the vehicle can lead to a loose connection which could indirectly cause the vehicle’s engine computer to fail, loss of vehicle control and cause serious injury. Inspect devices and cabling regularly to ensure all devices and cables remain securely attached.
WARNING! If at any point after an in-vehicle device is installed a warning lights up on the vehicle dash or the vehicle stalls or has a marked drop in performance, shut off the engine, remove the device, and contact your reseller. Continuing to operate a vehicle with these symptoms can cause loss of vehicle control, and serious injury.
For the latest version of the Limitations of Use, please visit: goo.gl/k6Fp0w.
WARNING! Your in-vehicle devices must be kept clear of debris, water and other environmental contaminants. Failure to do so may result in units malfunctioning or short-circuiting, that can lead to a fire hazard and cause loss or serious injury.
WARNING! Do not attempt to remove the devices from the vehicle in which they are originally installed for installation in another vehicle. Not all vehicles share compatibility, and doing so may result in unexpected interactions with your vehicle, including sudden loss of power or shutdown of the vehicle’s engine while in operation or cause your vehicle to operate poorly or erratically and cause serious injury and/or vehicle damage.
NOTICE: This product does not contain any user-serviceable parts. Configuration, servicing, and repairs must only be made by an authorized reseller or installer. Unauthorized servicing of these products will void your product warranty.
