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.
I've tried geo-fence, "where are you?" and speed alert with 100% success so far. I'm not surprised movement alert gets queried on the forums as it begs the question "what is movement?" - Is it 2cm, 2m, 200m and what is the meaning of life?...I think I'll always struggle with movement alert from ANY GPS device as it is completely at the mercy of the satellite timekeeping and a complicated algorithm. My boat and cars all "move" even when they're stationary.

Tracker

I now always use the speed alert with very good results. I usually set at 4kph and have no false alerts.
With movement alert I also had a few false ones.
The TK102 is still a great piece of kit a few years in. The only thing I changed was from the hard wired 12v adaptor to a phone type charger - they must have (better?) surge protection as the hard wired one blew when left connected and using my CTEK my charger. Its now always 'armed' even when the boat battery is on charge

Today had a try out for more than 4 hours.

At first I used Speed Alert at 10 - 20 - 30 - 50 km/hr. Each time I got the answer 'speed ok!' from the tracker. Saw the green led blinking so there was a good fix on the satellites. Drove around 100 km/hr but there was no alert send to me.

Second I had the car stationary for more than 6 minutes so the tracker could get a fix on the satellites and its location. Tried again Move Alert, got the answer 'move ok!' and drove more than 20 kilometers but no alert appeared.

The only thing that works is Locate Tracker and Auto Track; I have to call the tracker and it answers with its location or the device sends a SMS almost permanently.

I'm very disappointed, spend 94 on the tracker TK102, 20 on a SIM-card with phone credit on it and 3 on the iPhone app. And that all seams a waist of money. The tracker doesn't warn me when my boat is moved are in acces of speed.

Mark...the reseller market for the TK102 is flooded with clones. I fear you may have one.

Hmmm...then diagnosis from afar becomes difficult I'm afraid as the problems you're reporting aren't replicated at this end

I am sure you are doing this correctly to get the message speed ok but have you tried

speed123456SPACE5 ( obviously the 1-6 is your own pin and space is a space :-) )


At 5 you really should get a very quick trigger. I cannot see why you aren't at your settings though

Good luck

Jeff

@Jeff: the iPhone App sends the message so I don't type anything.
Exemple speed123456 050 for 50 km/hr
Is that the correct way?

I just tried speed123456010 for 10 km/hr so without any space and the answer is speed ok!
That is I typed it without using the iPhone App.

I get two messages:
1 = format error
2 = speed ok!
