WHAT YOU WILL NEED

If you do not have the VIVEPORT Desktop App installed, go to vive.com/setup .
- While using the External Tracking Faceplate with VIVE Cosmos, you will need to use the VIVE controllers and base stations. You can purchase these hardware separately from the VIVE store . (When using Base Station 2.0, only VIVE Controller (2018) can be used.)

SET IT UP
Replacing the current front cover with the External Tracking Faceplate
Separate the front cover starting from the bottom right corner with the visor facing you. Carefully pull out the front cover until it detaches from the visor.
With the front cover attached to the visor, press the center of the front cover.
Note: You will hear a click when the front cover locks in place.
Replacing the current top strap with the new top strap
Peel starting from the ends of each pad until they detach from the headset band.
Detaching the top strap from the headset band
Starting from the rear of the headset band, pull down the strap to unhook it. Then, on the other end of the strap, pull down and out on the strap to unhook it.
Align and insert the hooks to corresponding slots. Then, gently pull the strap up to hook into place.
Starting from middle, align the front pad tabs with their slots on the band, and then press along the front pad.
You may need to gently bend the ends of the front pad to align the outermost tabs with the slots on the band.
Insert the back pad tabs (second from the farthest left-corner tab) into the holes of the headset cable strip with its flap down. Make sure that the strip is firmly attached.
On the rear of the headset band, align the hooks of the top strap to its corresponding slots. Gently pull up the strap to hook into place.
Align the back pad tabs with their slots on the band, and then press along the back pad to reattach. You will hear a click when the tabs are inserted.
Pairing the controllers to the headset
The status light turns solid green when the controllers are paired with the headset. Learn about the status light on the controllers.
