1500 is not for 6 months. I need to confirm if it is for a year or 15 months though. Yes, the expense is on the higher side and that was the reason why I thought of using my own prepaid SIM with a better plan. Have to check whether that will work or not.

My two bits is that frankly 100 bucks per month (I think my 1.2k was for 12 months upfront payment) is a pittance to know 24x7 where my vehicle is. The geo-fencing and individual route demarcations facilities are especially useful and I use it extensively.

Think about it, I easily pay out 100 bucks+ as tips after a good meal or to a scruffy auto driver when the actual fare would be 1/2.

Matter of perspective I think. Plus the KYC documentation etc. I can barely manage to meet my family's multiple Airtel postpaid connections documentation, leave alone a prepaid one!

I recently bought 2 GPS trackers from eBay India, I called and had good detailed phone conversation before I decided to buy those units.
(I am not affiliated to seller, but a good person deserves a mention)
Please do share your experience after installation of both these units.

E-Katz, device is now around 6+ months in my car, never failed till date.

There are two options, either do a 2G Data Recharge, or put some money as Talktime topup, both ways device is able to update location on PC browser based interface or on Android App.

I've recently moved to NCR and I never felt nervous about car parked outside office or my apartment.

Device consumption of data is quite low, sometimes even a Rs.10 topup works for 2 weeks, sometimes its not enough for a week, may be depends on how frequently update is sent to the server.

if you have any specific question please let me know.

Yet to process the installation video :-(

My friend got a new car to rent it in uber with his own driver. He is now searching for a GPS tracking device which can track it online and live and if possible a device which can monitor fuel tank. He is skeptical that the driver may not fill in the fuel for which he will be claiming the bills.

Thanks.

He can probably use a fuel card like the one provided by HP - www.drivetrackplus.com

Not fool proof. Have observed several pumps attendants give drivers "cash back" by filling lesser fuel than the amount charged on the card. Some kind of ECU based data logger which can log actual fuel consumption might be a better option.

Even I have same feeling he can easily bribe the attendant. Is there is no device which can fit my requirements? Even if not the petrol atleast basic tracking.

If he is really paranoid, he can fill it up every morning and handover to the driver. Assuming a 40L diesel tank and a FE of say 18kmpl, it will easily give a range of 500+ km. I doubt any intra-city cab will run for more than that in a day. The daily fill can be tweaked based on the usage pattern - fill, say 20L, every morning, if the car does only about ~300 kms a day.

Daily run can easily be tracked through any of the GPS security systems.

But even this is not fool proof. Best solution would be to find a trustworthy driver.

Something strange with Autocop Trackpro : If you have more than one cars equipped with different models of autocop trackpro (say one car having TP-1000 and the other TP-2000), you can't track both on same computer or mobile phone.

One need to buy same model numbers of autocop trackpro to track multiple cars with the same laptop or mobile phone.

I already had TP-1000 on my Innova but came to know of this after installing another TP-2000 on my new i20 Active.

Of course, 'the most unhelpful' Autocop 'helpline' blamed the accessory dealer for not informing me that i would need two laptops/phones to track two cars with different model numbers of trackpro.

Following may be a better option as the Concox website has firmware for downloads.
I was tempted, but did not buy as it involves connection to ignition for remote fuel cut off etc, which Iam not comfortable with, as my car is still under comprehensive warranty
