If you own a Proform bike, then you know how convenient it is to be able to track your rides with the built-in GPS tracker. But what if you don’t want that feature? In this article, we will show you how to turn off the GPS tracker on your bike.

1: Remove the Seatpost Clamp

The first step is to remove the seatpost clamp. This is typically done by removing the four screws that hold the clamp in place. Once the screws are out, gently pull on the clamp to release it.

2: Remove the Battery

Next, you will need to remove the battery. To do this, you will need to unscrew two screws located near the battery. Be careful not to lose any of the screws!

3: Remove the Magnet

The next step is to remove the magnet from the tracker. To do this, first use a screwdriver to pry up one end of the magnet while holding onto another end with your hands. After lifting one end, use a blunt object such as a screwdriver or a chopstick to gently push and pull on both ends of the magnet until it releases from its housing. Beware of any sharp edges on this part!

4: Disconnect wires and Cable

Now that all of the parts are removed, you can disconnect all of the wires and cable connected to the tracker. Make sure that you label each wire and connector before removing them so that you can reattach them in reverse order when you’re finished.

5: Clean Up Any Messes Made in Step 3 and 4

Once everything is disconnected, it’s time to clean up any messes made in steps 3 and 4. Use a vacuum cleaner or a brush/pan mixture to clean off debris from around magnets, screws and other parts. Make sure that all cables are properly routed so that they don’t get tangled up again later on!

2: Loosen the Handlebar Clamps

Now that everything is disconnected, it’s time to loosen the handlebar clamps.
