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.

Are we any closer to finding a reasonably priced sim? will have to chase the crowd I used to see it they brokered a deal with Optus.
Wish I had these skills, excellent work Jeff

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?

The pre-paid yearly sim I use has 12GB included.

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.

Hey George,
you did a lot of driving over the weekend. Can you check out the Telstra page and see how much data you used?

I know Telstra rip us off for sure with data. The tracker sends in the region of bytes each time - not even kilobytes.


The size of a GPRS package (including data) is about 160 bytes


But telstra round up to some minimum size, so our data usage shows much more than we really used.

Maybe I get it cheaper because it's attached to my account that has broadband, foxtel and two post paid mobiles.

hey mate

1.8mb for the last 30 days lol. not a lot at all. though a crap load of sms's $56 worth just for the last 30 days. Ill check the previous months.

i may have to revisit this.. prepaid might not be the way though maybe its because of the hickups i had with the antenna and false alarms

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.
