| | | - Blue Antenna Connector (GPS)
| | |
| | - Purple Antenna Connector (GSM)
| |
| - Grey Antenna Connector (FM 2)
|
- White Antenna Connector (FM1 / AM)

Pinout (according to PSA documentation) :

1 - Reserved
2 - Reserved
3 - +5V (red cable)
4 - GND (black cable)
5 - USB Data - (white cable)
6 - USB Data + (green cable)

Note: the colors of the cables are the standar used in USB cables, but they could be diferent.

This kind of connector is widely used by PSA for a lot of purpose (warning, auto AC, …). But for some usages, only 3 pins are present on the connector. In this case, you have to buy 2 of them to have one usable for the USB.

Instructions:
Just connect an usb flash drive according to the pinout!

** DO NOT REVERSE THE +5V AND GND OR ELSE YOU COULD DAMAGE YOUR USB FLASH DRIVE OR EVEN THE RT4 SYSTEM. **

(reversing the data pins caused no problems in my RT4, but be advised that you are at your own risk!.)

It is recommended to use an USB flash drive with a read/write access led, so you can visually check that the system is reading or writing data from the flash disk.
