I will put an order in and send it direct to boat build so it is fitted whilst consul is wired up.

Our boat doesn't sit on the water except when in use so the Tracker is not in a box or bag or anything. It's in a dry area though

I will e mail today. Is this what I should order looking at previous posts

TK102.with 12v to 5v converter to hard wire it to a battery

I also expect this RIB to be dry stacked and only on the water for use

Ian - apologies for the delay in replying

We ordered the following:

TK102-2 with a two open wires car charger

I'm not sure how different this is to Leapy's version but it was the one recommended by David Cheng at Xexun when he realised what we actually needed it for.

It might well be the same but when you speak to David he will email you a spreadsheet which lists a number of TK102's - hence the need to define the version number

Does that make sense!!

Cheers, I have e mailed David to ask so will order once contact made. I am going to ask for boat builders to hard wire it before consul goes onto the boat, just need to make sure I can get the SIM card in

As long as you can get to the back of the unit I can't see why that wouldn't work Ian - the SIM sits behind the battery.

David is really helpful and delivery is very quick - I paid vai Paypal - which was a few pennies more but a simple hassle free transaction

Let us all know how you get on

Thanks again Leapy for making the suggestion

My iphone has the techno to find itself, surely it cant be expensive to supply a chip then a central location like with car trackers. It would put off some of the thieves as they won't be expecting it.
Have a look at the website www.chipandtrace.com a company based in Plymouth.
They can supply what you need.

Pugwash - welcome to Ribnet. Are you a happy customer then? (Forgive my cynacism but when your first post is promoting a commercial product - you may want to have a look at the forum rules on commercial posting and if appropriate arrange a trade membership!).
