Have one fitted to my bus, but am still struggling to get it working properly and the instructions are not that great (especially if you loos them) fitting is ok its setting it up after by txt that seems to cause the problem.

I don't think I am helped by the fact I have no or very little signal at my house!!

Theres a slightly posher model too, which comes with a remote control so you can use it for central locking, etc. I have got one to play with, seems to work pretty well, txts you a location with a google maps link.

Only annoyance is there doesnt seem to be a 'if alarm is set and van moves, txt me' mode. And the manual is pretty chinglishy.

I use this app on the phone:
https://www.greenalp.com/RealTimeTra....php?page=home

I can log in to a web page and get a live position of where the van is. I used to have a tracker that used cell tower location but found that was too inaccurate.

When I get to it I will be hiding the phone out of sight so that it can track and not be found.

I have what appears to be the same unit. Was installed in my Renualt Master and currently in its box waiting for install in the T4. I am pretty sure if has a "if van moves text me" option and you can also define the perimeter based on a top-right and bottom-left type basis to create a box - for when maybe someone borrows your van but you tell them not to go outside a certain area.
