The device comes with a single registration code for one account. You may use a computer with a trial account in place of a device. The trial accounts are active for 90 days, at which time you will need to register the trial account or create a new trial account with a new name and password. There is no need to reinstall the software to add an addition trial account. You may wish to do this in cases where different account holders are using the same computer.
Once the accounts are set up, start the software on the PC with the USB antenna attached. The Registered user can log in using the handheld. The second user can log in using the software. This does not necessarily have to be the same computer; any Internet-ready computer can serve in place of a device so long as it has the software installed and is connected to the Internet.

Once the software is installed, simply select “Create New User” from the file menu and fill out the form. If you do not have a registration code, you may leave this field blank. This creates a trial account which will be active for 90 days.
If you are using a trial account, you may create a new account near the end of the trial period. The new account name should be shared with your friends, so that they may add your new account to their friends list. The original account will lock after the 90 period and after 6 months the locked account will be deleted.

One-shots are one-time game modifiers that you can use to improve your performance, such as nitro bursts that give you faster speed. However, after you use a one-shot, you no longer have it anymore.You would need to unlock another one to use it again.
Add-ons are customizations that can be used forever on your vehicle, such as tires or weapons.Once you have unlocked them, they are permanently available for your use.
In order to modify your vehicle in the workshop, tap any icon in the circle with your finger and it will take you to the page where you can unlock it, if you have enough credits.
Those that are green are unlocked and your car is currently equipped with that item.
Those items that are orange are already unlocked, but your car is not currently equipped with that item.
Those that are grey are unearned.
You can purchase more credits to unlock specific one-shot or add-on modifications. Once add-ons are purchased, they will always be available to equip your car.
