There are three available tracking options for the GPS devices.
All three of these options requires a SIM card to be in the device.



1) SMS only tracking:
You are only alerted via SMS. This can be configured for sending an SMS at certain intervals, or you can SMS a command to the device at any time to get it's location. In this configuration there is no subscription fee. You buy the tracker and pay for your SIM (associated SMS costs etc), and that's it.


2) Hawkeye Australia GPRS (internet) tracking
Hawkeye Austraila is the STS commercial tracking system. The software is by Meitrack, so has full compatibility with these devices. The server is located in a top tier data centre with a bunch of redundancy built in, so it's resilient. The cost of this is $200 per year, or $20/month. This is a special Mustangtech "club" rate, so all support requests should come through this forum. This cost may be covered by discounts from your insurance company, so check up on it!


3) hybrid's free GPRS (internet) tracking
I have also built a GPRS tracking server that is running at home. For now, I'm willing to allow use of my server for free only to Mustang Tech members (I may charge a small fee in the future, or create a donation page if you really can't help but give me money). However, on this server I do not provide any uptime/availability guarantees, or any kind of guarantee that the website will be available when you need it. In other words, your use of my server means that you agree that you do not hold me responsible if your pride and joy is stolen and you can't track it on my website.


so option 3... if we had our own internet connection server at home we could do this ouselves for free? or is there something else ontop we need to install etc.. ?

id be interested in something like this (the whole gps tracking). Are the devices the same or if you wanted some form of tracking other than SMS you need a different model?

Meitrack have some software called MS01, which can be installed on a desktop computer and can track a single device. I think it costs around $200 the the license.

You could use your PC at home for this and your internet connection. However, your PC has to be switched on, and the software always running for this to be constantly tracking your car.

You also need to know how to forward the ports from your internet modem/router to your PC, configure the firewall on your PC etc

Yes.. this software should work with any Meitrack device.
I cant vouch for any other brand though.

I added that standalone option to the original post. I actually forgot about that one until you mentioned it. I ran a trial of it (they give you 30 day trial I think) and it worked fine.

I wouldn't really recommend that option though unless you're a handy tech type person that's happy to leave their desktop turned on 24/7 and your internet connection is reliable.
