    With all the "fly aways" noted on this board and others, I would like to invest in a tracking system. I looked at the Tagg system, but it had a monthly service charge.

    This looked interesting, but I don't have an extra sim card. Does anyone know of where I can get a card that works with this and does not have a monthly charge?

    What are others using?

    Also, on another note, I ordered a "horn or buzzer" that indicates a low battery. How have others hooked theirs up?
    Thanks
    Brad

    This looks like an excellent problem solver.

    There are sim cards all over ebay, cheap. You probably knew that.

    Just realise this is an LBS unit NOT GPS - It only works where your mobile / cell phone will work .. So in the middle of nowhere it will just be extra weight in the Phantom !!! Mandrake

    I did know there were sim cards. I just wondered if anyone knew of a cheap service. One that does not have a monthly charge but would still work on this.

    thanks for the clarification of this only working where there is phone service.

    Did you order this one? Looks like you can put one on your cat or dog and one for the Phantom. I like this option. I may go this route. I think I'll wait until you get yours and see how you like it.
