Handling/ease of use

The request to have the GPS tracker installed in a workshop unfortunately detracts a little from an otherwise very professional appearance. A total of 6 workshops with installation experience are listed on the company’s own website. If you want to install the device yourself, you will only receive an inadequate sketch (see Figure 2). Apart from the installation, the finder works almost flawlessly.

Precision

The GPS tracker provides reliable and accurate data. The location via SMS and app works perfectly. However, since the precision also depends on the SIM card inserted, we don’t want to anticipate too much. If you want to have the location query displayed on a map, you pay extra for the location platform.

Größe und Gewicht GPS-Tracker Vergleich

Size/weight

Size and weight are 98mm * 52mm * 16mm and 85g. This makes the GPS tracker one of the smallest and lightest in our comparison. However, since the two specifications do not play a major role for a permanently installed tracker, the category does not really carry much weight for us.

Service/contact option

Unfortunately, Autowacht does not offer telephone support. Because if you ignore this aspect, the customer service is exemplary. Fast, detailed and helpful feedback on Amazon is a decisive indicator of this.
