You can either set it up to give automatic updates or only when you query it with a text message. It will either reply with a text to upto 5 phones giving its lat & lon, or will send data to a server so you can see it on a map either on a PC or smartphone.
Interesting claims in the eBay description for this device...lots of pictures to show that this TK-102 is "the original, non-clone" device but somehow it's not convincing - too much of the 'I think he doth protest too much' syndrome and no mention anywhere of the word Xenun, the
OEM - and not helped by the claim that this
TK-102 is "waterproof". My TK-102 is definitely not a clone - bought direct from Xenun - and is equally definitely not waterproof, unless, you count as waterproof the Codprawn style ziplock bag it came with - that'll be the bag that makes it useless for any period over a couple of days as it prevents a charging cable being used.
I'm not saying this TK-102 won't do a job, but it's not conclusive as an original and it's certainly stretching a point to call it waterproof.
