Originally they had stolen my $15,000 tractor and my $2100 tiller attachment, a cement mixer, and some other tools. How I wish, constantly, I had had a tracker on those, but I didn't think people stole tractors (we figure they winched it onto a trailer).
So I recently bought a replacement tiller, just an 18 inch walk behind self powered one, waiting on the insurance for the big stuff still. And of course, I put a Spot Trace on it. It has been up there less than a week, and we're hit again. My builder calls me at 7:30 and say they got into his office trailer, he is totally bummed, stole a bunch of tools, stole our security cameras and dvr, office stuff, even personal stuff of no value.
And they stole my tiller, so I'm not bummed, I'm excited.
I check the app on my phone and I'm not finding what I want, the screen is too small, so I go out to my computer and visit the website and see that they first moved my tiller at 9:16 pm, then messed around for 3 hours and started driving home a little after midnight. Probably that is when they were breaking into the trailer. They drove maybe 5-7 miles away to their house on a deadend road. Spot Trace didn't tell me the address so I used a county tax map that is online that I often use, and I called the police to tell them. That took all of 5 minutes from being told it was stolen to finding the thieves address.
The police came out, and then needed the detective. So it took some time. The detective's plan then I guess was to go and he said ask to search, and if they denied permission to wait on a warrant. It was a bit moot, the pickup truck was parked out in the open still loaded with stuff, an armed convicted felon was unloading it, another thief took off on a motorcycle and got away unfortunately. The one by the truck was apprehended, the truck was itself also stolen from some third party, and there was a meth lab inside the house.... and while the cops were still there some guy came by to make a meth ingredient delivery and got arrested too. I think they may actually be staking it out tonight hoping to catch some more meth heads.
So we got my tiller back, and everything else that was stolen, but not the stuff stolen back in June. I think it must have been these same criminals, but they likely got rid of the stuff since, sold it or something.
At $100 plus $100 a year for monitoring it isn't cheap, but with Moore's law hopefully it gets cheaper, it is really great insurance though. I wish they had combo deals, I own 3 now, so that was a $600 investment, the tiller I recovered was $800. Not great math there, but had it been on my $15,000 tractor, well, there you go. And $200 to put some scumbags behind bars (and when we add in the thefts, the firearms, and the meth, he won't be getting out anytime soon), is totally worth it.
This does work way better than TrackR or Tile or those other much much cheaper options. Those only work if someone with the app on their phone, active, walks by your lost item. This is a true GPS tracker, it works anywhere the device can pick up a cell signal I think, and the battery life is great.
Write down your serial numbers, brands, and model numbers of your equipment so if it gets stolen you can give the police that information, and for important things get these GPS trackers. Might also be good for tracking teenagers.
To mount them they come with a bracket, some adhesive, and some screws. I don't like those options, I wouldn't put this anywhere that is easily accessed by a drill or screwdriver, it needs to be tucked up under something, hidden, (mine all work with metal between them and the sky), and the adhesive isn't that reliable looking.
I like just tucking it loose somewhere if you can, for a vehicle it could be inside the seat bottom for instance, for a bike maybe tossed into a dummy water bottle. I've used industrial strength velcro which I know has really good adhesive because I've used it frequently, and this isn't a big commitment, I could remove it one day. Then for a permanent mount I've used some epoxy (JB Weld Steel Reinforced is my favorite) to permanently adhere the bracket to something, and then I can pop the tracker in and out of the bracket as needed.
So much for Moore's law.
Spot, without really telling people (there was an email supposedly), almost doubled their subscription fees and autocharged people renewals.
My first year I paid $109 for service, now they want $180. That is crazy. Technology is supposed to decrease in price. It works, yes, but a company that would behave this way I cannot recommend, minus 4 stars for poor profiteering customer service. Should I expect to pay $300 per device near year?
I was attracted to the Spot Trace for two reasons: better battery life to begin with and the ability to change the reporting frequency, which in turn increases the battery life.
The Spot Trace was easy to activate and pretty much ready to use within minutes of receiving it. However, it was at this point that I realized one of the features that I was most interested in did not live up to my expectations. You cannot change the reporting frequency on the fly. The Trace has to be connected via USB to your computer for a firmware update in order to change that. Initially, I was going to use the Spot Trace as a back up to the SpyTech, set at 60 minute intervals and increase the reporting frequency once the SpyTech battery became low. Not possible. There went that plan. My choice to upgrade to “extreme tracking” turned out to be a waste of money for this reason because I’ll never set it to 2 ½ minutes for the entire duration of monitoring.
I also wanted to see what the tracking looked like, so I dropped the Trace into the bag I take to and from work. I left the Trace set to the factory default settings, reporting at 5 minute intervals. The app and website both provide adequate information to see the location of the Trace. However, two key pieces of information that are missing from the Trace tracking messages that I have become accustomed to in the SpyTech are current battery status and speed. The Trace will tell you when your battery is low, but this doesn’t help you when your asset is on the move. And being able to know the speed is something very helpful to me.
Next, I modified the Trace to report at 10 minute intervals. I’m not really sure what the problem is here, but I got no reports from the Trace between the intial “movement detected” message, and the “asset stopped” message. There were no tracking reports during my two-hour drive. I then changed the Trace back to the factory defaults and it worked just fine. After both changes, the Spot Trace Updater indicated that the firmware was correct. I have not yet attempted to contact customer service because, frankly, I am irritated. I will update this review once I have.
I ended up not using the Trace immediately as I had planned. In order to accommodate the batteries that provide the extra life, the Trace is significantly larger and heavier than the SpyTech. Thus, it is harder to hide where I had been hiding the SpyTech, so it will require a little ingenuity and a bit of time.
The pluses that I see in the Trace are:
• extra battery life
• lights stop blinking after 20 minutes “in order to be unnoticeable.”
The cons I see in the Trace are:
• harder for me to hide (your mileage may vary)
• battery status is only reported when low
• speed is not reported
• changes to some settings, including the reporting interval, require firmware updates
• after changing the reporting interval, the Trace did not provide any tracking updates at all
That’s my two cents. Again, my use is not quite the intended objective of the Trace. So it may be perfect for you. I do recommend you read the user guide prior to purchasing, just so you know what you are getting. I don’t think Amazon will let me post the link to the user guide, but you can find it easily online.
Bonus: there is currently a 50% rebate on the Spot Trace when purchased between 5/19/2017 and 9/4/2017 and activated by 9/9/2017. The rebate is available through the Spot website.
