Preis GPS Tracker Vergleich

Price

At around 150 euros (as of 29.07.2018), the all-rounder from Incutex is quite expensive. The product is also advertised by the manufacturer as a premium product, but at this price it is currently the most expensive GPS tracker that we have tested to date.

Funktionen/Eigenschaften GPS-Tracker Vergleich

Functions/features

The TK5000 offers a reliable location query. It also has a number of alarm functions. These include the radius, speed, battery and movement alarms. Other useful functions are the SOS button and the power-saving mode. Strangely enough, the built-in microphone is not advertised.

Battery life

Top performance at 30 days, but could still be optimized for particularly demanding users. However, I am very satisfied with the battery life.

Handling/ease of use

Unlike other Incutex products, the TK5000 is a little complicated to set up at first. Several SMS messages are required to get the essential functions of the tracker up and running. Apart from that, the user-friendliness is ok.

Precision

Accurate to within 5 m according to the manufacturer. We could not find anything to the contrary and are thoroughly convinced.

Größe und Gewicht GPS-Tracker Vergleich

Size/weight

One of the problems we have often mentioned in this category is the size of the appliances. We also find the TK5000 too unwieldy. This is of course a problem, especially when it comes to locating people.

Service/contact option

The service hotline is subject to a charge. The competition is simply more customer-friendly in this respect. However, apart from that, we have no other points of criticism and are satisfied overall.

Testimonials from other customers

Rather mixed. Many authentic reviews rate the tracker as only average. In view of the price,  probably simply had higher expectations of the device.

Summary

A proud price for a decent device. Unfortunately, the question remains: Why not choose a cheaper tracker? Although the TK5000 is a high-quality product, it doesn’t really stand out in any category. On the contrary, given its size and weight, it struggles with similar problems to its competitors. It doesn’t even top the battery rankings. Overall, the price/performance ratio is simply not right.
