    Yeah, that is the radio localisation feature I guess. Makes sense.

    Note also some devices work by GPS some by Telecom tower ranging,some FR signal and some all three and if hidden in a steel container all tracking is lost.
    Of course it is not infallible.
    We're talking about a 10 year old bike here anyway... not a 150k Porsche.

    As to expense Id say a good lock,chain and anchor point are more adept and cost effective at keeping a bike safe than a tracker which is after all for after the event not to prevent it.
    Did you miss the bit where I said that the bike is normally properly chained and locked when parked and the tracker will be an additional thing?

    Cool.
    I'm mostly concerned about the alarm draining the bike's battery though.
    Also, I have BMW's alarm on the bike as well. I guess they both can exist at the same time, right?

    You can set up a geofence, but mine is set to notify me if the bike is moved with ignition switched off.
    That is even better.
    Thanks!

    I haven't noticed any appreciable drain on the battery and I am not aware of any problems with having both tracker and alarm.

    Perfect, thanks a lot!

    I found another thread where someone said the installation was 350. But I guess by 350 they meant buying the device + installation cost.
