When using a TBM2: In order for the service to be operational, it is necessary for the vehicle to be contactable via a wireless connection for the requisite configuration. The radio connection can only be established when the ignition is switched on. The manual system switchover can take several working days.

Miscellaneous

The Geo service saves the data from the vehicle, starting from the last point at which the service was activated. If the service is deactivated in the meantime, the previously stored data will be retained for up to 25 months - new data in the course of the Geo service will not be generated and saved. Data will be saved again after Geo is activated again.
