^^^ It looks like they want you to only use their company to monitor the unit.

The one I use is much less up front cost and does everything this one does but works on a regular cell carrier sim so no lock in to a company. Not sure that this one is better. YMMV.

Mine is similar to this. (Be sure it supports 3g)

I've been looking at adding a second tracker. I'd like to know if anyone has found a good (or at least functional) unit that works on Verizon (CDMA) network, for when I roam into areas that are poorly covered by AT&T.

Ting uses T-Mobile as a carrier for the GSM network. Ting subscribers have two options for networks, CDMA (Sprint) or GSM (T-Mobile).

My TK-103 tracker has a Ting GSM SIM card and still works fine in most urban areas and on major roads.

I don't think I've seen this one here before. While looking around at alarms I came across this...it's a unit that has to be connected to a compatible alarm or remote starter. You get smartphone control of the alarm/remote starter/locks and further stuff such as battery level/turning on heated seats even idle runtime. You also get GPS tracking. The first year is free and subsequent years are $39.95 USD or $99.95 USD for 3 years (though I've seen it listed @ $29.95 USD/year on ebay units). You can also have multiple vehicles on the one account. Thoughts?

Cost is around $115 USD

This compatible alarm is $60ish USD
