This is one of the best car theft prevention and vehicle protection system available today. With convenient SMS ability, full-range of alarm functions including gas to engine cut off, and the latest in GPS tracking technology, the G204 GPS Car Tracker is the ultimate safety device for your car, van, truck, or even the entire vehicle fleet. Track on Demand - Replies with a TXT message of current latitude, longitude, speed, and time, as well as an Internet map link to your cellphone to show you exactly where the GPS tracker/your vehicle is. Geo-fencing control - When the vehicle moves in/out the preset scope, it will send an SMS alarm to the authorized phone numbers. Movement and Speed Alert: The tracker can warm you with SMS message when the vehicle starts to move from a stationary status, or when the vehicle is moving faster than a preset speed. Stop the Engine: You can send an SMS message to the tracker to cut off the gas and battery power, so the engine will remain in an immobilized state until your remove the alarm status. GPRS: With a GPRS enabled SIM card, you can monitor real-time movement of your vehicle with the supplied software on your computer. So how does the GPS Car Tracker work? The unit is powered by automotive battery, and should be installed inside a vehicle . It runs on the latest GPS SiRF III chip-set, a sophisticated GPS microchip embedded into the heart of the tracker which continually reads its own location from low orbiting global satellites and then utilizes the GSM/GPRS infrastructure operated by your cellular network provider to transmit its current location to you. All you need to do is insert a working SIM card, it even has Quad-band Connectivity so it works anywhere in the world. The GPS Car Tracker makes no sound at all, so you are fully aware of what is happening to your car, but the inside driver and passenger don't know that their activity and locations are been constantly reported.

There are lots of reviews of this product flying about, some nonsensical and others excellent, so I will gloss over some of the heavier and perhaps contentious technical points in favour of functionality. Installation can be a 2 wire quick affair or can extend to switching off fuel, listening to conversations, etc, etc. I just needed to install a tracker to qualify for an £80 reduction in my motorhome insurance, so a quick but discrete installation, set the geofence mode by text (meaning it triggers if my vehicle is driven away) and the rest is handled by my existing on board alarm and immobiliser already fitted - and “job’s a good ‘un”.
It works, brilliantly. People don’t nick motorhomes for joy rides, they either steal the contents or take the whole vehicle for resale. I have professionally fitted alarms for the former and conventional factory fitted immobiliser/alarm for the latter. This unit complements those two alarms, and makes recovery of the vehicle a realistic prospect.
So, from functionality and value for money perspectives, this is a “must have” if you own a boat, a caravan or a motorhome. It is a handy aid if you are into playing spies and want to eavesdrop on someone’s conversation or know where the vehicle is.Read more ›
The short version is that this tracker is pretty simple to use. You plug it in to charge it (comes with bare wires to connect to a suitable 12-24V supply). Insert a standard SIM card (purchased separately) that supports 2G (i.e. not Three, I used Giffgaff, as they charge good rates for text messages which is how the device communicates, and you can check your balance online and top it up online without needing to put the SIM in another handset like you do on some other networks). Send it a text message from your phone "begin123456" (where 123456 is the default password) - this sets it up. From then on you can call it from that same phone and a few seconds later it'll text you back its location. On my smartphone I can just click the link it texts back and see the precise location in Google Maps. Simple as that!
There is SO SO much more it can do!
In the box: The tracker, external GSM antenna, external GPS antenna, external microphone wiring loom (includes fuse, reset button, panic button), 40A relay, CD.
You don't have to use ANY of these, other than the Tracker on its own. It has an internal battery for power and it seems to work OK without the external antennas. All of the other bits are optional.
The wiring loom has connections for:
* 12-24V supply.
* Siren (optional).
* Ignition/Accessory detect (optional).
* Door trigger (optional).
* Panic button.
There is also a:
* SIM card slot (required) - push the tray in hard until it clicks otherwise it can fall out.
* SD card slot (optional).Read more ›
Good quality product, feature full and great value. Needs a SIM CARD, pay-as-you-go or Contract. Needs a level of technical competence to install properly (if you can install a car stereo or alarm then you can do this). Setup and use needs a level of technical competence (if you can send SMS messages on mobile, set passwords and such then you should be all set).
Before I came across this sale on Amazon I had originally purchased a 'MY-TRAK SNOOPER' vehicle tracker from the UK car accessory supplier Halfords at 180GBP, who's annual contract of +100GBP and a forced sign up of a credit card before they would even activate the device. That device never worked and failed to get activated, so it was returned for a full refund and my experience left me sour and not wanting to try another MY-TRAK device ever again.
I am glad now that purchase all went wrong as this 'unbranded' GPS/GSM car tracker is much better value, better quality build and works without the extra cost, non sign up contract and has more vehicle based features than the overpriced My-TRAK snooper.
Arrived within a week from China. Box contains the instructions in good English (not perfect). The main unit is complete with a wiring harness. An external GPS antenna. An external GSM antenna. An external microphone! The wiring loom contents a Relay for an engine cut-out feature! There is a reset switch and a 'SOS' pressure switch in the loom also. The unit has the capability to wire up an alarm or horn. There is a mini CD-ROM, haven't needed to see what is on it yet.
Main unit contains an internal backup battery too. That battery means I did not have to connect it up via the wiring harness to be able to test it out of the box.Read more ›
