Within the Group Settings window, select Show Guest and click close.

If you do not tick 'Show Guest' you will not get any plate reads, except plates that have already been manually added to the allowed, denied or exclusion list.


Close all open windows, and your Navigator software should now be showing plates read by the Edge AI LPR camera over the top of the video for that camera's channel.


To adjust the font colour and text size of the text shown when a plate is read, open the Alarm Management screen once more, but this time select ePOS/OSD



Once the ePOS/OSD window opens, select Font Settings. This is where font style, size and colour can be amended.
