  1. Unplug the SkyTrak unit from the wall if it's charging and turn it ON.
  2. With the SkyTrak powered on, depress the reset button at the bottom of the SkyTrak (it's a tiny hole at the bottom of the largest threaded hole, which perhaps has a rubber cap over it) with a needle or small diameter paper clip until you feel it depress and all the lights turn amber. This should take about 10 seconds. Once the lights flash amber, release the button. The unit should now show solid red, solid red, solid green and be ready to get setup in direct mode.
  3. Connect your device or PC to the SkyTrak WIFI, which should appear on in your list of available WIFI networks.
  4. Once connected to SkyTrak WIFI, launch the application and give the unit a minute to register and connect in Direct mode.
  5. You can now proceed to connect in Network mode (where both the SkyTrak and your device connect to your home WIFI network) or USB mode (the latter is more reliable). Make sure your home network is broadcasting on 2.4 GHz, not 5 GHz, and that the SSID and password do not have any special characters in them. Select the appropriate security protocol. If you don't know what it is, try WPA AES.
  6. Once you setup your network manually, it should show up in the available networks list. From there, select it and accept. The SkyTrak should then migrate to network mode and you should be good to go.
