5. Fill in your Okta Username and Password, and then click Sign In.
6. If your microPod II is connected to your PC with a USB cable, has a subscription tied to it, and has you added as a user of that microPod II, then it should appear in the Vehicle Selection window as shown below.
6a. If you have not yet updated your microPod II, then you will see the following screen. To configure the wireless network, click the gear icon located at the top right of the vehicle window.

11a. If your device was correctly configured, it should remain, or reappear, in the Vehicle Selection window without the microPod Setup Utility running. This image is what the page will display if your pod has already been updated.
11b. If your device was correctly configured, it should remain, or reappear, in the Vehicle Selection window without the microPOD Setup Utility running. This image is what the page will display if your pod has not been updated. Either of these is okay to occur. If you receive the following image, but are unsure of the success of the connection, then make sure the Registration Application is not running and unplug and plug back in your microPod II via USB to your PC. If your pod displays in the vehicle selection, then the connection was a success.
If you close the microPOD Setup Utility, and the microPod II device disappears, and does not reappear after several seconds, then you will have to repeat the setup process to correctly configure a wireless network on your microPod II.
