google play is the equivelent of buying from the app store, I've also got the Xexun, not installed it in teh boat yet, but at under 50 quid, with the 12v power lead, and a 99p SIM and the job's a gooden...

I may well "invest"!

Ok .. so 1 .. its free. And 2 when you actually go to Google Play on my PC, log in, it asks you if you want to install it on your android device, and without me even having to do anything more, it installs it remotely on the android device...

NOW THAT IS CLEVER !

Downloaded the Iphone app (starburst one) & it works a treat, does everything it say on the tin, though it did cost 2.49

TBH hadn't seen the 7 one until you pointed it out

Looks like there's four variations on a theme ranging 2.49 to 7.49. I've got the 2.49 one...it was easy to configure - tracker mobile number and password only - and worked straight off. I've only had it a couple of days but it looks like when you ask 'where are you?', it shows you a map scaled to show where you are and where the tracker is.

I've not tried any of the movement or geo-fencing stuff as I don't use it, though I may do in the summer when the RIB will be in the marina a couple of weeks.

Let me know what you decide to do...

I've just set up the geofence, piece of p155 with the app. I never bothered before due to it being a faff. I can see it being very handy when we're on holiday or camping etc.

Yep Just tried it. Perfect.

40 for the tracker - a few years ago now, 2.49 for the App, running costs of about 5 to 10 a year for the SIM top up...nice deal

I've been in touch with David @ Xenun today, he passed on my details to his partner firm who have quoted me -

"TK102-2:82USD
Car charger:7USD

Delivery cost to UK by DHL :45USD,you can pay by paypal.(need extra 5% fees).

We know there is a much cheaper delievery way by HongKong post,but it
is not safe and takes around 1 month there.So we advise you use DHL
with 3-4m working days."

That works out at about 83 posted (although I had asked for a price for 2 so the postage may be a bit cheaper)

Have seen these on ebay but note the problems on non-genuine, whaddya think?
eBay - The UK's Online Marketplace

TBH..I've heard of clones that work perfectly and clones that don't work. There's a website devoted to it but I haven't been there in a while. Which is which? IIRC the website gave a step by step guide through photos. I took the easy way out and bought direct from Xenun. Haven't been disappointed.

I think Nos (?) bought off eBay but don't recall who is was from.

Found the app in the iTunes store, 2.99 only.
With which unit do use it? In de store it says for the TK102 (personal use), TK103, TK104, TK105 and TK106.
Could it last on a 12 volt battery, 85 Ah for say 2 weeks?
