HP, double check on the Garmin website, select GU10 then click on FAQS, the last date for 12 month renewal subscriptions is Dec next month, then it's all being shut down in Jan 2016

Cheers! That gives us another season. So if due in March 2015, can you renew early? I guess so.

We have been fitting the spot track system. It's been brilliant.

I use the TK103 hook up to the optional shock sensor (4 extra).
The TK103 has a power saving sleep feature which shuts down the GPS and runs the GSM on low power until the shock sensor is triggered or the unit called.
My boat has not been used for 3 months with no trickle charger connected and it still had plenty of juice to start the engine last weekend.

I have bought 12 more TK103 units and run them in our fleet of vehicles at work.
They have all been running since July with no issues so far.
I use the very excellent and free GPS-Trace ( GPS-Trace Orange 2.0 ) to track them in real time on a map.
I use GiffGaff SIM cards which auto tops up credit when low. All the trackers run in GPRS mode and transmit data every 30 seconds. they use 5p or less credit per 24hrs.
There is also a free unofficial android app to track on your phone.
GiffGaff data also works in most European countries which we need. Infact i am just looking at one of our vehicles in Holland! See pic.

I can't seem to renew the subscription until it expires, which is in April 15. Any ideas?

I would try calling the helpline but make sure you have an hour free while you sit in the que. The other option is to email them but they do take a few days to respond. Or but I haven't tried this cancel your membership and then manually renew it on the website. Let us know how you get on
