Relevant for hiding purposes.
Tiny, about 1/2 the size of a pack of cards

Similar sizes then. Garmin perhaps a little smaller.

The TK102 arrived and is working fine after set up.
But the mode "Movement Alert" doesn't function.
Have send "move123456" to the unit and get the answer "move ok!"
When moved for more than 200 meters it should give an alert by SMS. Even when moved for several kilometers it doesn't do anything.
And that is where I bought it for. When the RIB is moved for more than 200 meters I should get an alarm SMS.

Anyone have the answer? I'm now 2 days at it, visited forums, downloaded several manuals but nothing.
Help is very much appreciated.

Can't help much here. I've purposely not used movement alert as my experience of 'movement' as observed by any GPS device is that there always is some, even when it's stationary. Might not be much, but there's always some.

I only ask mine "where are you" or I geo-fence it via an iPhone.

Hate to say it, but this is the advantage of the Garmin. V user friendly.

Presume you have a geofence set up of 200m

Try re setting unit, also ensure voicemail is off on the sim being usef. we had similar issues with our previous one.

Mark - are you setting up a Movement Alert or a Geo-Fence?

Paul - do you know what the voicemail issue is? I keep hearing about it but have never heard it explained.

Mark...you'd talked earlier in the thread about getting the iPhone App. Did you do this? Setting a geo-fence is easy-peasey that way.

@Leapy: I'm not using Geo-fensing. I have the iPhone app from Starburst and that works fine. My RIB is on a trailer, so very stationary.

Up to now I didn't try it in the boat just in my car driving around to test things out.
Park the car, wait for 3 minutes, use the app to give the signal, receive the answer and start driving. And nothing happens.

Mark

Help me here...I also use the Starburst TK102 App. From the App Store description - and the App itself - it has the following features available through the iPhone:
* Arm/disarm (turn the tracker on and off)
* Locate (send me a text to tell me where you are)
* Map (show me where you are on a map)
* Auto Track (tell me where you are every x minutes)
* Speed Alert (tell me if the tracker speed exceeds x mph)
* Geo-Fence (tell me if the tracker goes outside pre-determined area)
* Monitor (listen in to what the tracker can hear)
* Configure (set up the tracker - new passwords etc)

So when you say "Park the car, wait for 3 minutes, use the app to give the signal, receive the answer and start driving. And nothing happens" what do you mean by "use the app" & "give the signal"? Because (bad grammar...yuk!), there's no option through the Starburst App to set a movement alert.

For the reasons I stated before I still think you need a geo-fence Like what I do

@Leapy: In the App there is Arm/Disarm. Clicking on the picture of the key (the spot where the lock is closed) brings you automatic to a message to send to the tracker. And the message reads: move123456, when send you get the reply: move ok!

In the mean time still reading on a forum GpsPasSion Forums - [TOPIC] Xexun "TK102" Tracker - User Experiences
and found out that move alert doesn't work well, speed alert works fine.
Going to try that tomorrow.
