GPS trackers
« on: June 22, 2018, 09:58:58 PM »
This has probably been done before but - Iíll ask anyway.

With the theft of a SCJ Mach1 recently, and a friends modern GT - both found a week later stripped out, Iím thinking of getting a GPS Tracker Alarm for my cars.

Anyone bought them, fitted them, used them? Iíve heard horror stories about the police refusing to act on location info, but Iím not sure of the accuracy of that?

Feel free to PM me if youíd rather not share your secrets on an open forum.

Thanks in advance.

Check out Mustrack.

It's by an Australian mustang owner and the guys I've spoken to love it. It's the one I'll be fitting.

I have put one in my 65 and One in my 60 F100.  Different brand in each. But both notify me when the car is moved and it also gives me break downs of how and where I drove them. Lately I have been away from home for periods so it gives me a piece of mind, just in case a POS breaks into my house and tries to steal the cars.

derwin66 do you just use SMS, or do you use a website for history, configuration etc?

I use a website,  Vylio website, for one and SMS for the other which sends you to google maps

I've fitted a Mustrack and couldn't be happier. Has options to turn off switches by remote such as fuel pump, fuel shutoff or coil. Simple to install and plenty of tech support. They even include and set up the sim card.

Hey Jeff, I purchased a Mustrack system and works great in many ways. Can stop engine when its running. Tells you when the engine starts/battery disconnected/towed/has a range alarm where if the vehicle is driven past a certain distance from your home point a SMS is sent to your phone/computer etc. Many others.
Use a Aldi phone card in unit. Im on $15 plan. Lasts months. Depends on your settings and what you want sent to you.

Cheaper than others and works better.
Highly recommended.

I agree Giffo. Have been meaning to fit one of these for quite a while.
