This should be a pretty easy self install for anyone wanting one for their car or bike but have no idea how to install it. You can just plug it into your fuse box if you buy an "add a circuit" fuse adapter from Amazon for about £5. Plug the adaptor into your fuse box in any slot marked "acc" or "ign"(the ones powered when the ignition are on). Plug the red cable on the tracker into the adapter, then ground the black wire by securing the bare wire to a grounded screw nearby. Then just hide the tracker in the dashboard/fusebox somewhere. Same way to install a dashcam.

Find a YouTube video with better instructions though, I'm just saying how it's much easier than you'd think and anybody can do it. It's almost the same for any car. This tracker is 12v, and thats what all cars are.

I haven't got one so i've not tested them. Just sayin.

Anyone know a PAYG card that retains it's credit if you don't use it? You'd hate to have your bike nicked only to find out that the SIM has been cancelled because you haven't made a chargeable call/text in 6 months.

You could just text it once every few months I guess? A 5p text won't hurt. It's probably best to do a test text every other month anyway, who knows how long these things will last for. Load it up with £5 and that's like 100 texts, can do 5-10 years worth of test texts with that.

It doesn't work like that. You need to top it up not just send a text from it.
Can you not use a duplicate Sim for an account you hold and use?
You can pick up a contract SIM with unlimited texts with low data for next to nothing.... Especially if you don't mind doing cashbacks.
Will it be able to pick satellites if buried in a fusebox?

I use a Lycamobile sim. I just need to top it up £5 every 3 months to keep it active

Not true at all, all the major networks are any chargeable action within 6 months+. Only the smaller ones (1p/Lyca etc) you need to top up to keep it active.
Giffgaff sim in both my trackers. Don’t even have to top up. As long as it’s got credit your good to go

Phone operators will always close down numbers which are not being used. The best advise is to make a note to use the SIM to make a chargeable event every 6 months. To avoid having to spend very much out on credit, there are occasionally SIM offers where you can get a SIM card which has some credit already on it, and I don't mean ones which cost £5 and you get £5 credit.

Like this

or this

or there was this for some free data without the need for any credit if this would work with a tracker????

have a rewire gps locator on my motorbike and a giffgaff sim (just credit no goodybag nonsense) and when the device is on it's making a connection to the network every so often so it stays active. I've left it inactive while the bike was offroad for 6 months and it still connected and tracked just fine afterwards. Giffgaff says you loose free gg to gg if you don't make chargable call / text within 3 months but whatever... the credit doesn't disappear or the sim go inactive. I loaded it up with a tenner in july and it still has about £8 left. It uses very little data. Just don't go for a goodybag because you don't need so much data .. and it expires. Regular credit topups work great.

Couldn't you run an app on your mobile to automatically send a sms position request text every 6 months to the tracker so it won't expire if you forget it.

A quick google suggests the android apps sms scheduler or Tasker might be suitable.

I've got an old Virgin sim in an old nokia that didn't use to expire, but now does after about 6 months. Oddly it has sprung back to life the next day on a couple of occasions after attempting to ring it and calling top-up from the phone, it still had its £1 credit!

The Phone Co-op do a contract SIM for £2 a month, no messing with cash back. You'd have to pay for extra data you use, which if your car had just been nicked, you probably wouldn't mind.

I think that might be because it was cheaper (£11.89) on Gearbest :- gearbest.com/car…tml
this seems a good deal as it can roam on other networks when they move whatever they have stone to europe.

Not sure if i'm being a moron, but the hardware i got doesn't respond / can't call or text it - i'm inserting a three SIM card with a data plan, taken from my phone. Should it be a specific type of SIM?

3 only use 3G & 4G whilst I suspect this online runs on 2G (haven't checked the spec but you can ).
Try any other SIM card but not 3.

FYI, GiffGaff do free SIMs with £10 bonus when you top up.

Hope this helps

That did the trick! Thanks!
Now, on the monitoring platform, what is the password? Can't seem to find documentation on this anywhere.

Turns out it's 123456
Edited by: "HHNNNGGG" 15th Jan
Ordered one. Just gathering the info to try to work out how to make it work. I have trawled the reviews and translated them with Google. This is the outcome if it helps others.

Links to word document versions of the manuals in English:-

img.banggood.com/fil…doc
img.banggood.com/fil…ocx

Other reviewers comments and tips.....

the exact location of the vehicle via SMS you have to type G1234 and to enable the display on the AIKA app instead you have to type in apn123456 cmnet. Remember that the default password is 123456. In this way you can see in real time the path that the vehicle is making. I wanted to buy another one but the offer is over but believe me it's worth the money you spend

I don't use APN or Internet or GPRS, I just use SMS text. plug in SIM, wait until orange light is steady. Call the #, it should ring. send this SMS: admin123456 12223334444 <- your areacode+ phone send this SMS to set English: 109# send this SMS to check settings and get a SMS response: CXZT if it says you have XM_GT09.... firmware, then : send this SMS to get GPS location and map link text back to you: g1234

Works with Tmobile Pay As You Go SIM in USA. I don't use APN or Internet or GPRS, I just use SMS text. plug in SIM, wait until orange light is steady. Call the #, it should ring. send this SMS: admin123456 12223334444 <- your areacode+ phone send this SMS to set English: 109# send this SMS to check settings and get a SMS response: CXZT if it says you have XM_GT09.... firmware, then : send this SMS to get GPS location and map link text back to you: g1234 You may need to send this SMS to get SMS replys if nothing is working by this point : SF If you get "SF FAIL, ACC ON" then unplug the orange wire temporarily

It took some 2 weeks to get the correct documentation for the tracker I received. I take a couple stars off on quality and value for that reason.There are at least 2 flavors of firmware and they need their own documentation (they are now both available on the item page). This tracker's sensitivity is just amazing: its GPS is getting satellites fixes even when indoor (my other GPS don't). Yet don't expect a fix when underground. So far, I never got an LBS localization in "normal" use, it always sent proper GPS localization. It reacts to movements if you so wish. You can set it to do geo-fencing, daily location report, low battery alarm, etc. If you don't want to spend money on a SIM with a data plan, you can set the tracker to work solely via SMS. On the other hand, if you want to track in real-time, you have to use GPRS (2G network) to the server of your choice: there is one already set up by default when you purchase the tracker (see the documentation: server and app) but it can be your very own server (like traccar for example) by setting the IP and Port via an SMS command to the tracker. When fully charged, the internal battery lasts about 3 hours which isn't bad. On an external 12V supply, it constantly draws at least 20mA when "idle" and around 45/50mA when sending an SMS (it probably draws a lot more on the internal battery, GSM modules are known to draw up to 2A while SMSing). Now that I got the right doc, I'm very happy with this tracker. BTW, mine has the AU08 firmware. Check yours and pick the right doc accordingly.

It is impossible to set up the device using the doc included (unless there are 2 versions of the device in the same shape...). For my device I used this documentation: English version: fpv1.ru/up/…pdf Russian version + some tips how to set up the tracking on web page: drive2.ru/l/4…25/ Everything works perfectly !

If you are looking for a budget GPS tracker then this the product for you. It took me a while to understand how to get it to work but after reading the comments & the FAQ section here everything got sorted. You will need to insert a SIM card for it to function. Good thing is that you can track your vehicle from the mobile app & from the computer website. I recommend. Thumbs up.
