About the Pegase Moto GPS Tracker 🛰️

  • How to Install the Pegase GPS Tracker?

    The Pegase GPS tracker is attached under the seat of your motorcycle using the provided double-sided adhesive. Ensure that the Pegase logo is oriented toward the sky (avoiding metallic or carbon parts just above). Then, simply connect the cable to the battery with the provided universal connector.

    Pegase should be connected directly to the motorcycle's battery, not to a starter relay, for example.



    1. Before contacting our customer service, make sure that your Pegase is compatible with your battery. Specifically, a Pegase for a lead-acid battery should be used with a lead-acid battery, and a Pegase for a lithium battery should be used with a lithium battery. (See: How to identify my vehicle's battery?)

    2. Proper installation of your Pegase GPS tracker enhances optimal communication with GSM and GPS networks. Ensure that there are no metallic or carbon parts above your GPS tracker.
  • Lead or Lithium, Which Model of Pegase Moto for Your Vehicle's Battery?

    Pegase Moto is equipped with a cutoff switch to protect the vehicle's battery against potential over-discharge. This cutoff switch triggers at a certain battery charge threshold.

    Because lead-acid/AGM batteries and lithium batteries have different voltage curves, the cutoff threshold for the switch cannot be the same for both battery types.

    Therefore, there are two versions of Pegase Moto, one for lead-acid batteries and the other for lithium batteries:

    1. On a "lead" battery, the cutoff switch triggers at around 12.5V.
    2. On a "lithium" battery, it triggers at around 13V.

    Consequently, when purchasing Pegase Moto, you need to select the version that corresponds to your battery!



    • A "lead" Pegase Moto on a lithium battery will function but carries a risk of over-discharging your battery.
    • A "lithium" Pegase Moto on a lead-acid battery will not work or will perform poorly.
  • How to Check the Power Supply of the Pegase Moto GPS Tracker?

    Here are the steps to check the power supply of your Pegase Moto GPS tracker:

    1. Check the cable connections: Ensure that the red terminal is securely connected to the red terminal of your vehicle's battery, and the black (or transparent) terminal is properly connected to the black terminal.

    2. Verify that the cable fuse is in good condition.
      (See: Order a new Pegase Moto cable)

    3. Then, go for a ride for about ten minutes.

    If your trip is detected, your Pegase Moto GPS tracker is properly powered.

    If your trip is not detected, your Pegase Moto GPS tracker is likely not receiving proper power. Please contact our customer service.


    • Pegase Moto must be connected directly to the motorcycle's battery and not, for example, to a starter relay. Examples of connections not to replicate:



  • How to Perform a Reset of the Pegase Moto GPS Tracker?

  • What happens if thieves disconnect my GPS tracker from my vehicle's battery?

    Firstly, if thieves attempt to disconnect the tracker from the battery, the motorcycle will experience movements. You will then receive level 1 and 2 alerts (vibrations and suspicious movement).

    Our trackers are equipped with an internal battery that takes over in the event of a power disconnect from the battery:

    • For Flashbird:
      • You can expect several weeks of autonomy when stationary and several hundred kilometers while in motion without the engine running (in a truck or on a trailer).
      • In such a case with Flashbird, you will receive a battery disconnection notification.
      • Flashbird also indicates the vehicle's battery voltage level on the home page of the app.

    • For Pegase Moto:
      • Expect a few days of autonomy when stationary and approximately a hundred kilometers when in motion without the engine running (in a truck or on a trailer).
  • What happens during a trip on a trailer or truck?

    This type of trip is extremely energy-intensive for the GPS trackers Flashbird or Pegase Moto, here's the explanation:

    Detecting a new trip, the tracker continuously communicates its position with the server, even when the vehicle's engine is not running. The vehicle's battery is not powered by the engine, and neither is the tracker.

    The tracker, therefore, activates its battery disconnect to protect the vehicle's battery from discharging, and then switches to its internal battery. This allows for tracking the trip for a certain duration.

    The duration of this tracking is variable and depends on the capacity of the vehicle's battery and the tracker model:

    • For Flashbird:
      You can expect several weeks of autonomy when stationary and several hundred kilometers while in motion without the engine running (in a truck or on a trailer).

    • For Pegase Moto:
      Expect a few days of autonomy when stationary and approximately a hundred kilometers when in motion without the engine running (in a truck or on a trailer)."

Technical Questions ⚙️

  • How to Identify Your Vehicle's Battery (for Pegase Moto)?

    There are two main types of batteries:

    • Lead-acid/AGM batteries: A lead-acid battery is often black and features the "Pb" logo.

    • Lithium batteries: A lithium battery is often colored (green/orange-blue), depending on the brand. It can also be black but will always have the "lithium-ion" designation.


    • The safest option is to ask your dealer.
    • Example of a lead-acid battery with the "Pb" designation
    • Example of a lithium battery with the "lithium-ion" designationCapture_d__cran_2022-06-28___16.43.17.png
  • How to maintain your vehicle's battery?

    Whether your vehicle is equipped with accessories powered by its battery or not, it's important to monitor the state of charge and maintain your vehicle's battery.
    (In the case of motorcycles, especially high-performance ones, they are often equipped with 'standard' lead-acid/AGM batteries that are undersized for starting a large 1000cc or larger twin-cylinder engine.)

    It is essential to monitor the charge level of your vehicle's battery, especially if it is driven infrequently, both in terms of frequency and distance.

    You can do this by using a multimeter to measure the voltage delivered by your battery and compare the measured value with the manufacturer's recommendations (motorcycle or battery user manual).

    During periods of inactivity for your vehicle, it is highly advisable to connect the battery to a trickle charger.

    The battery's charge level will be kept at its highest, and your accessories (including Flashbird or Pegase Moto!) will continue to be powered without risk and therefore function.

  • Can my Flashbird or Pegase Moto trackers damage my vehicle?

    Our trackers have CE, RoHS, and R10 certifications (automotive standard). They are equipped with a cut-off circuit that protects the motorcycle's battery against potential over-discharge. Therefore, they pose no risk to your vehicle.

  • How to use my Flashbird or Pegase Moto tracker on multiple vehicles?

    You can use Flashbird or Pegase Moto on all of your vehicles.

    The ease of installation of Flashbird and Pegase Moto (a cable to be connected directly to the battery) allows for this.

    However, if your battery is hard to access, we recommend acquiring an additional cable (you will then only need to move the tracker from one vehicle to another).

  • How do the GPS trackers Flashbird and Pegase Moto communicate with my app?

    Powered by the motorcycle's battery or via their internal battery, Flashbird and Pegase Moto continuously communicate the data they collect to our servers via the GSM and GPS networks.

    These servers then translate this data to your smartphone via the app.

    There is therefore no distance limit to be respected between the motorcycle and the smartphone.


    • The accuracy of GPS traces in small spaces can sometimes be challenging (for example, on winding mountain roads, narrow city streets), compared to what can be achieved on a race track.
    • Finally, it's important to keep in mind that there is variability in electronics. For example, a GSM module may be more or less performant depending on weather conditions. Cold and humidity can 'slow down' the tracker's startup.

  • How can I ensure that I'm not riding in a 'dead zone'?

    Our trackers absolutely need a GSM network to function. If you pass through a so-called 'dead zone' where the network doesn't reach, the tracker will have difficulty communicating its position. It will record its internal GPS points and transmit them again when it regains network coverage, but the internal memory is limited and only holds a few kilometers' worth of data.

    You can also check the quality of coverage based on frequencies, operators, and the municipality you are traveling through.

Other Questions 🧐

  • Are Flashbird and Pegase Moto recognized by insurance companies as anti-theft devices?
