Vehicles that have built-in telematics do not need hardware installed for tracking, but they might require an activation task. This article describes where to go to view vehicles that are connecting to the built-in telematics, and that require additional actions to connect to Reveal.

To view a list of all your vehicles with built-in telematics that are not yet connected to Reveal and their activation statuses:

  1. In Reveal, click your initials in the upper right corner of the screen.
  2. Click My Account.
  3. In the Manage your equipment and service requests section, click Built-in telematics.

  4. The following table lists the details and activation statuses for all your vehicles with built-in telematics that are not yet connected to Reveal. Vehicles that are connected to Reveal can be viewed in the vehicle list or on the live map, to which a link is provided above the table.

These are the possible activation statuses and associated tasks:
