John I have been testing one of these systems for a few months and so far I am not convinced
Although it is cheap its accuracy is awful
using one of the on-line services for GSM tracking I often get a location 2 or 3 mile from where the tracker is. This inaccuracy decreases in built-up areas and towns but in the country it is not good. This is due to the cell system used by mobile phone companies and the fact that the cells in the country cover a wider area and that there is a system of reducing the availability of service to inactive phones.
Having said that, with a boat on a river or marina it might be just good enough
