I am just about to buy a GPS tracker

I have done some searching on this forum (its fantastic for info) & it seems for my requirements the genuine Xenun TK102-2 with 12v to 5v converter from a Guy called David, (anybody got the correct contact detail for him as web seems abit confusing), payment by paypal it comes direct from China is the one to go for.

Pay as you go Orange / O2 sim and away I go. Just looking for a little bit of an update from pervious persons who have already taken the plunge into this set up.

Am I correct as above?
Not sure yet if I will link directly to rib battery or keep recharging it so is there an another charger I need to order?

Thanks appreciated for conformation of above by more experienced persons in this area other than myself

A few of us bought the following
--Leapy recommended--"As there are a load of clones out there sold through eBay I bought mine direct from the original manufacturer Xexun, the only way I felt I could be absolutely sure. You need their TK102. Be very wary of the clones, they're 'iffy'

Xexun don't actually sell to Joe Public direct but they sold me a 'sample' at a US$ rate (and so is subject to the strength, or otherwise, of the pound)

Email david@xexun.com with the request. He was very very helpful. Make sure and get the 12v to 5v converter too if you want to hard wire to the boat battery, otherwise the internal battery only lasts 36-48 hours before needing a re-charge. It comes with a 240v charger and two Li-ion rechargeables. You'll need a PAYG SIM".

I e mailed David at Xexun and took the unit with a mains hard wire, Fitted and works well. Gives you a few options to set and then if moved you will be texted, also a geo fence if you dont want boat outside an area when in use and also a locate text. I have had no problems and David is the correct supplier and not a copy

Thanks,
I am interested in this but thought I would search apps files first and could not find it. Is there a name for it on apps files?(rather than downloading from unknown website)

Has anyone tried it yet?
