    Hi Guys
    I have been looking at cheap trackers for use on a P3A and have found the TKstar mini waterproof gps on eBay for under £25 delivered.
    My question is has anyone tried one of these and if so how well does it work or alternatively can anyone recommend a tracker that is cheap and doesn't have a monthly subscription .
    Thanks in advance.

    The Marco Polo tracker is not the cheapest up front, but it'll end up being the cheapest over time since it has no monthly fee. The only issue with it is that is has a 2-mile range.

    Wow a big difference in price and if I go pay as you go the Tk star is also a no monthly charge, just a very occasional top up, also I think no range limitations?

    Right -- it's a different type of tracker. You might not have a signal sometimes depending on how the service is in your area.

    Understood! I am still keen to see if anyone has tried one though?
