If these are the genuine article, they are cheaper than buying direct

Hmmm. That's not going to help find the boat if it's pinched. A 400m radius in a built up area covers a lot of sheds.

I assume the 400m is just the alarm threshold. The message will still contain the lat & lon to give accurate location. If not you can still poll it.

Don't use the geo-fence myself, just ask the tracker for coordinates which are always very close.

Had some communication with the ebay seller above & he assures me that his units are genuine Xexun. However they don't come with the hardwire kit, this is available from other sellers on fleabay. Could someone enlighten me just as to what the hardwire kit consists of please?
