  • Mini GPS Tracking Real Time Live Vehicle Tracker

    Bikes get stolen, whether they were locked, alarmed or immobilized, if your bike is gone its gone. So what do you guys think of this device ?? You can find it on ebay for around $ 120. Is this the ultimate bike recovery tool ??? Does anyone got one fitted ? Would love to hear some opinions. If it works, I reckon its awesome for the price.

        Standby time is 4 days. That is pretty shit as it would chew threw the battery when turned on and probably only last a few hours. It will only send SMS messages (GPS coordinates) unless it is hooked up to the battery.

        If you connect it to the battery that just makes it easier to find/disarm.

            Useless. You have to dowload the travel information off the stick.

              Couldn't find whether you can get a GPS position from a remote location or not though (happy to be proven wrong). Seems like you have to plug it into your computer to get the details.

              EDIT: Beaten ^

                Gotta mate who sells GPS tracking stuff. He tells me that he sells a personal tracker for $299 that is battery powered. Don't know the other details.
                Call John (0408 912 319).

                  I still reckon your better off putting your $$$ into securing the bike properly at home and having good comprehensive insurance. Yes it can still happen, but such is life. Also, anything that relies on a mobile phone network is extremely limited in usefulness imho.

                    If the crim takes your bike, first thing they will do is remove the funny looking antenna. Also keep in mind the cost of keeping the SIM connected to the mobile network. Ie, going to need some kind of mobile plan. Thirdly, it uses GSM. How long till GSM gets phased out?

                      If anyones interested i can get these: Carminder - GPS Tracking System
                      They used to do a "bike minder" but have dropped it from the range, apparently they say i can add a tilt switch to the car minder which makes it the same as the ol bike minder was. they're not cheap, price depends on numbers, PM me if your interested, if i get enough response i will start a thread get numbers and get prices, as a rough estamate you might be looking around $600 - $700 but it comes with a tax invoice warrenty ect
                      I know i cant spell, please don't feel the need to correct me

                        Granted that the cheapest way is not to get your bike stolen :-) getting it covered with proper insurance is also imp though 'cos if it is stolen you still have the hassle of putting in a claim and waiting to get it sorted out. If u use ur bike to get to work then that's a pain in the butt!

                        Spoke to my mate John and he says that the SIM is on a $5 pm plan so that's pretty cheap and he tells me that there is no external antenna so you can hide the unit well. He can also source carminder, but reckons his unit is as good at tracking (no tilt switch tho). i gotta GMS phone and a friend @ Telstra reckons its good to go till 2012 (not my opinion, but her opinion - so don't blame me if Telstra change their mind). The point of phone coverage is valid but may-b something is better than nothing....

                        horses for courses I guess.
