TK102, cheap as chips but does what it says on the tin.


I made up a small waterproof box with the tracker and charger in it.

Spend a little extra and get the tk103 instead if it were me.

Tk102 if you get a good one is great...That is problem with them. One of mine the SIM stopped working (SIM slot, not sim) and one the battery stopped charging, not battery fault.

I had a genuine Xexun (sp?) TK102, it was very flakey.

There is a ton of copies of the tk102, the one I got directly from maker is fine.

To my knowledge no one has copied the tk103......yet.

Never had a bad one.


I did buy mine a few years back, iirc it was £40 odd. I noticed they are now £20 odd, I just assumed they had come down in price but they are obviously rip offs.

You can put the imei number into Xexunís website & it will tell you if itís genuine or not. Mine was & worked ok for 6 months or so, after that it was intermittent & eventually gave up.

I've tried the same as PD and for some unknown reason, both failed within a year. I then bought some of these ,,,, XEXUN Motorcycle GPS Tracker XT-009
Put in a small IP enclosure and they have worked perfectly for a few years

Choose your SIM carefully.

I've got an O2 "pay as you go" in mine and the bu@@ers "expire the credit" regularly.

If it wasn't such a bloody strip down job to get at it, the SIM would be getting changed.

I have an Asda SIM card in the remote heater in the camper. 50p & includes a couple of quid of credit. As long as you send 1 text every 6 months it stays live.
