Car Setup

Data logging

  • On the bottom of Settings Page, there are radio buttons you can choose to log the performance of your car.
  • Choose the radio buttons and then hit “START DATALOG” button below.
  • This will show you real time graphing of the car’s performance. This information cannot be saved and only viewed with each drive.
  • You can stop and start the logging with the direction arrow at the top right of the page
  • You can choose the cloud icon to share with Navitas Engineering if asked to.

Speedometer – if tire size on the settings tab is correct, then the speedometer will report speed directly from the vehicle as opposed to GPS

Caution sign – indicates errors stopping vehicles or warnings about state of vehicle. When you press the caution sign, faults will show. You can choose email and it will generate an email to send to your dealer or you can cancel and correct the faults

Battery Voltage – measures the battery charge

Motor Temperature – measures the temperature of the motor

Lock Button – press button to lock or unlock car remotely.

Direction status – F N R is shown

Key icon – shows key is present in vehicle and turned on or greyed out if off

Green Words on Bottom – indicates the vehicle’s driving status (e.g. waiting for key, waiting to be unlocked, waiting for charger to be removed, waiting for tow switch, battery too low, waiting for forward or reverse switch, waiting for throttle to release, waiting for brake switch to be released, waiting for brake pedal to be released, waiting for foot switch, driving)

All Navitas TAC, TAC2, and TSX3.0 Motor Controllers have Bluetooth, and are compatible with the Navitas Dashboard APP.

To connect to your controller, you will need to have the Bluetooth and Location Services on your smartphone enabled, and your controller powered up. When you launch the app, you will see your controller listed under the "Controller Name" menu in the "Communications" menu.

Do not pair your phone to Bluetooth.

A common fix for this is cycling power to the controller. We recommend wiring the logic power from the harness module to the key switch. See diagram for more information. If the vehicle is not wired this way, simply remove the power by disconnecting the negative battery wire, and reconnecting it.

Connection issues result from common mistakes during setup.

Screen showing app permissions in the Navitas app

Permission errors

Most commonly there is a permission issue with the phone, and the Dashboard app. You need to verify that the following permissions are granted to the Dashboard APP:

  • Location Services
  • File and media storage
  • Bluetooth

On most Android phones, these settings can be found in the Apps menu of the Android settings menu. Look for our "Dashboard" app in the Apps menu, and verify these permissions are allowed. On iPhones, the app settings can be found in the lower area of the settings menu.

Bluetooth Pairing

Do not pair your device to the controller. The Navitas APP does not operate on the pairing protocol. Pairing with the controller will cause the controller to not show up in the communications menu.

Reset the controller

Common issues can be fixed simply by resetting the controller. Some vehicles need to have the power disconnected completely. This can be achieved by cycling the tow / run switch on some, or disconnecting the negative battery terminal. Most vehicles, simply cycling the key does not reset the power.

After you have created an account, you may request access to advanced settings in the settings menu. You will need to fill out the form with your information, and send to Navitas. Advanced functions will be available to you after the form is submitted.

This video walks you through the "Settings" tab of the Navitas App.
