Quick Start Guide

This Quick Start page is offered as a way to get you running quickly with your new Spartan GoCam.

First things first. You will need to set up the camera for programming:

  1. With the power switch OFF, insert batteries into the battery compartment. Use (recommended) 12, 8, or 4 (emergency, left 2 columns) 1.2-1.5v AA batteries.
    The following types of batteries can be used:

    • High-performance alkaline
    • Lithium
    • Rechargeable NiMH
  2. Insert an unlocked SD card (up to 32 G) into the SD card slot. Refer to the card symbol on the case for proper orientation.
  3. With the rubber gasket between the base of the antenna and the antenna jack on the top of the camera, screw the antenna onto the antenna jack. The rubber gasket must be in place to prevent leaks. Make sure the antenna is screwed in all the way but be careful not to over-tighten it.

Now you will need to activate the data service to be able to use the cellular wireless functions:

AT&T

  1. Find the IMEI number on the camera or in the camera menu under SYS/ Information. Find the ICCID number on the SIM card. Go to www.att.com/buyasession.
  2. If you want to explore the rate plans, click on Compare Rate Plans > Tablets and Other Mobile Devices.
  3. Two of the popular plans are $14.99/month or $25.00/3-month.
  4. From the main page, either Establish New Prepaid Account or log in to your existing AT&T account.
  5. Proceed through the activation process. You will be given several opportunities to review and verify your information and choices before you actually pay for and activate your service. Note: The password must be 6 to 32 characters long with at least one number, one letter, and one special character (@#$%!^&).
