I just released a new version. This should fix the crash on last known location that I found.
Also George, I've added a toast (auto disappearing message) that will list the last known location found in the inbox when you use the last known location sms function.
Let me know if a proper location shows up in that message. I need to find out if it's not finding a location in your inbox, or if there is a problem with the google maps code.
I'm still using Telstra pre-paid. Happy enough with $180/yr for Telstras network.
Our bigger problem is the 2G network disappearing at the end of next year. George and I are looking to grab one of their new 3G versions to trial.
So you can not run a 3G SIM in these trackers?
Jacko you should be able to get on a pre paid plus plan with $30 credit and 6 months to use it so that should be $60 a year. I was on it with my phone up until only a month ago. It is not on there website but as far as I know it still exists.
Is prepaid alright with the trackers as the cost of data is about $2 a MB so ludicrously expensive?
Yes you can use a 3G SIM, but it will fall back to 2G because that is all the unit supports. It does not need high speed data because it's a very small amount of data it sends. However, when Telstra switch off 2G we have no choice.
Yeah I think you need to work out exactly what you need. IMO, sms on ignition and maybe tow and that's all.
We can also get them sending alerts to the server via GPRS and I could convert that to an email sent to the username (email) on the website.
previous month was only $12 (40 sms's approx) .. this month ive had some troubles but then again ive been driving the car alot. Sometimes on start i would get 14 sms's unjust though. Should only get an exit sleep and thats and maybe Tow. alot of the sms's were repeats of each other.. and i think this comes to that plug.. keeps causing more sms's than necessary.
saying that i think the prepaid will be fine. however there might be a plan thats equiv to that per month that has more value and and prob sufficient data per month anyway.
