    Does anyone have on of these and are they any good as subs for various trackers are £100 plus per year.
    this alternative works in conjunction with your mobile phone i believe.

    I thought I might try hiding an old iPhone (with a broken screen) in the Moho somewhere and using the "find my iPhone" app. to track it.

    If it's just for your peace of mind then they're OK. They pretty much do what they claim but you need to consider, bearing in mind that a proper one is a few hundred quid to install, exactly what you're expecting for a few quid from eBay or Amazon.

    If it's for insurance purposes forget it.

    I have seen them at around £200, as for insurance i have a phantom system in the van but yearly subs are around £140 and when renewing my insurance there was no difference between having one and not having one, so if the one that alerts your mobile if van is moved and can be tracked via google maps it seems a good idea.

    This is the answer.

    Tie one end to the van and the other to a post nearby.

    If the van is stolen just follow the string.

    Simple but effective(y)

    Yes, got a Rewire security NANO 102 gps/sms tracker.
    Subs to GPS is £10pa after the first year but SMS works regardless of GPS but obviously not as accurate as GPS.
