Best OBD Tracker Device

ivorocha6 years ago

Hello,

I am looking for a gps tracking device that can be connected to my car using OBD.
I'm trying to get the best device at a lowest cost (of course :) ). Are there any suggestions?

Thank you so much!

Thank you for your answer :)
I would like to use the tk206 but, as someone mentioned, it does not work.
Have you tested it?

Thanks!

I haven't personally tested it, but I think it should work just fine. Where did you see the comment about it not working?

ivorocha6 years ago

In the link you have sent me, the reply #247

Thank you so much!

I suspect that it's just some network issue.

So, in your opinion, it does work on traccar?

Thanks :)

Anton Tananaev6 years ago

Yes, I think the chances are very high that it uses one of the supported protocols.

ivorocha6 years ago

Ok Anton. I will buy one and I will test it. Then, i will inform you about the results.

It is not very easy to have a "datasheet" of the Chinese devices' protocols...

Thanks!

I know, it's hard to get any information for Chinese devices. Let me know how it goes.

I am using this one:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/351624965031

Manual says it's a TK206OBD.

It's working on port 5002 and identifies as tk103.
For 'identifier' it only needs last 11 digits of the IMEI number.

richardvertigan6 years ago

Sorry, It's using 12 digits.
Actually IMEI = 352887072xxx608.
Traccar identifier = 087072xxx608.

I will buy a device asap. Thank you so much for your help :)

This's a good product from a trusted brand. I've been using the ThinkRace OBD Tracker VT200 for a few years now. The VT200 is also a great product which you should definitely check out. http://www.thinkrace.com/thinkrace-obd2-gps-car-tracker-vt200.aspx
