Just an update to my instructions for the MT600 GPS Tracker.

 

I ordered another one and have setup as per my original post. There are some changes from when I setup my first MT600.

 

Vodafone no longer have a prepaid 365 day SIM. Instead I ordered an Aldimobile SIM card that have a 365 day expiry. You cant buy these in store and have to be ordered online.

 

https://www.aldimobi....au/plans/payg/

 

Also when you order the MT600 tracker stipulate the AU version. Mine came as part number MT600-AU.

 

Also when you create a free account on GPS-Trace you cant have any more than 1 vehicle tracker listed. To get around this I just created another account using a different email address.

 

Cheers.

Hey guys and girls, old thread but new technology available.

Whats are some more recent GPS tracking devices you guys have come across, Ive noticed 4g trackers at Jaycar for around $230.00, smaller in size than 3g, no external antannas and have a internal battery incase the main car battery is removed.

Your thoughts ?

Cheers

Trev

I am still using the MT600 in both cars and working fine with the aldi 365 day expiry sim. nearly a year and it still has near the original $15 balance and is set to update the location every 10 seconds, so it uses no or little credit. The only credit it will use is during the setup process where you send it SMS commands and it replies with a SMS.

The MT600 also has a 6hr inbuilt battery plus the main battery connection. the only thing that has changed recently is the GPS trace website it is now https://ruhavik.gps-trace.com/

With the new trace website I have noticed that you can now add more than 1 device to a single logon, Before I had to have 2 Logons for my 2 devices but now they are both on the one.

Thanks Brett, Is it possible without to much micro surgery to add another external battery to the tracker, something abit larger to pro long the life of the device incase the worse happens and car goes missing, Something  in the way of a Lithium home security battery, that will last a week or two. ? Did you purchase the MT600 online ?

I just run 1 of mine with a seperate AGM battery in the boot and give it a charge every few weeks.

The commodore I run off the car battery but if you dont start it and charge within about 2 weeks it flattens the battery.

I got mine from here. https://www.ebay.com...872.m2749.l2649
