Price

The price is probably the main reason to buy. Compared to competitor models, the OVO has a clear lead here. The buyer should be aware that he is foregoing services when purchasing. This includes instructions, customer service and secure data transfer.

We were able to find the device on Amazon.de. The order and shipping went smoothly. Unfortunately, the article description was only created using a translation tool. Points are deducted for this.

Battery life

The possibility of connecting the tracker directly to the vehicle’s battery means that the GPS tracker can be used permanently. An internal battery has also been installed for emergencies. The battery capacity indicates a power supply of a few hours. This is probably sufficient for an emergency alarm if the power supply is disconnected.

Handling/ease of use

We had difficulties installing the appliance without instructions. Thanks to our experience with similar models, we were finally able to install the device. We were initially unable to use the remote control supplied, and only after several attempts were we able to get it to work.

Precision

GPRS positioning via SMS and app work reliably. Our recommendation: Do not use the option of tracking via the portal, your data is not secure there!

Größe und Gewicht GPS-Tracker Vergleich

Size/weight

The size and weight are average compared to other tracking devices (not particularly important for the vehicle connection). Should actually fit in every car.

Service/contact option

The dealer’s service options are probably very limited. We have not used the manufacturer’s service, but you can see from the reviews on Amazon that questions cannot be answered correctly. However, it is questionable how the manufacturer proceeds in terms of warranty and guarantee. Here you can probably only hope for goodwill from Amazon. The dealer name “AFTERPARTZ AUTOTEILE DE” at least suggests a German branch of the company. However, it is highly likely that this is only a Chinese manufacturer that is not based in Germany. Another point is deducted for this deception.

Testimonials from other customers

Mixed. The function (i.e. reliable localization) is positively emphasized for relatively little money. However, the inadequate instructions and the basic explanation of the device are often criticized.

Conclusion: OVO-103B from Afterpartz

The OVO-103B is the cheapest GPS tracker for vehicles in the test. With a current price of €39.99 (Amazon), the OVO-103B is the cheapest GPS tracker and is significantly cheaper than the competition.

Purchase and first impressions

The purchase of the GPS tracker via Amazon Prime went smoothly and we were able to hold the device in our hands after just a short time.
At first glance, the OVO-103B did not make a good impression. One field of vision in the packaging is covered by the instructions on top. This prevents a first look at our test object (see Figure 1). The interior doesn’t fare much better. The GPS tracker is unprotected and surrounded by a veritable tangle of cables (see Figure 2). At first glance, however, its small dimensions are impressive. A remote control for the GPS tracker is also included in the scope of delivery, which is not available on competitor models.

Set up device

When setting up the GPS tracker, the inadequate instructions are immediately noticeable (see Figure 3). So if you want to save money, you have to accept this. So we had to install the device more or less without instructions.
The OVO-103B can be connected directly to the car’s battery. This means that the device can be used permanently after it has been installed once. However, installation is not easy for the layman with incomprehensible and sometimes incomplete instructions.

Product features

Like the higher-priced competitor products, the OVO-103B has real-time localization and a so-called geo-fence.
Geo-fence: A previously demarcated area. If the GPS tracker exceeds the limit of the preset range, an alarm is triggered.
One positive aspect is that a free web platform can be used. This allows users to monitor the location of their GPS tracker live. Many other providers charge for this function. However, the same applies here: if you save on price, you cut back elsewhere. The platform is confusing and can only be used in English. To register, you really have to click through the website, as there are no tools or explanations available (see Figure 4).

Data security

Attention: What you need to be aware of: The location portal and the app send your data to a Chinese server. This means that unauthorized persons may also be able to view your tracking data.

TK 103B GPS tracker with many functions and high error rate

I bought a total of 5 of these trackers from the company Afterpartz and installed them in my company vehicles. I purchased a further 15 TK 103B trackers from other manufacturers on well-known major internet platforms at similar prices. It is important to know that various Chinese manufacturers market similar-looking GPS trackers under the trade name TK 103B, which …

Good and affordable tracking device, albeit with weaknesses

The many features and the good workmanship of the tracker itself are particularly positive. The reception performance, both GPS and cell phone network, are also really convincing.
Only the cables are a bit problematic: the connection cables for the battery are incredibly thin. Crimping is virtually impossible. And it would be practical if all the connection cables didn’t end in a fat tree. If you don’t use all the functions, you have so many individual cables left over.
Both the app and the SMS function have also worked without any problems so far.

nicely packaged without function

After the third delivery of this tracker, the only thing that could be determined was that it was not working. After switching on, the red LED is still permanently lit after half an hour. SMS for initialization do not arrive, are not confirmed. I have given up on this product – but the packaging with the magnetic clips is chic -.
