GT06 GPS TRACKER REVIEW

There are many reason to incorporate a motorcycle anti theft security system that enables the user to remotely control the motorcycle and or cars alarm by SMS (short messaging system). Putting up an alarm that only alert people within the vicinity of the parked vehicle without alerting the real owner is not that efficient and only by these so called GSM alarm can do the job properly. Once an alarm was detected by the unit, it will send a series of text to the owner notifying them of the alert. In this article. I'll be reviewing the cheap GT06 GPS car tracker alarm that is so cheap and, easy to install unit. It has a downside though and will practically write it down at the very last part of this review.

GT06 Car GPS Tracker GPS/GSM/GPRS Tracking Cut Off Fuel Web-based Gps Track for vehicle motor car alarm


When it arrived, I immediately unpack the box and see whats inside. It is a complete system already and only a GSM sim with of course enough CREDIT to make it work.

Installation is an amateur work too. Take a look closely at the photo for the right installation procedure.

(photo courtesy of the watermarked site)

The relay can be use to cut anything like CDI positive supply, pulser coil signal to ignition, and with just a simple text code to the system will entirely disable the IGNITION system and halt the operation of the vehicle and going nowhere but the side of the road.

For the installation. It must be hidden of course, since this is i think the cheapest out there, no external antenna was provided thus it can be put everywhere like the U-box compartment, but there is a precaution since no external antenna like those of the bigger and efficient units. Any sort of metal within near the unit to where it will be placed on your motorcycle will entirely affect the performance of the GPS function, nonetheless, that function is only used for tracking the vehicle to where it was on a MAP after triggering the cut engine alarm.

Instructions


A WORD OF CAUTION when ordering this online, make sure the supplier already made an account of the tracker to the WEB BASED GPS positioning software to where you must log-in to monitor and track the position of the unit. We really do not know why ours was not registered on gps588.com, and having to seek other software just to pinpoint the location on a GOOGLE map.

PROS:

  • cheap 
  • sleek design
  • easy to install
  • good idle current consumption (battery will last for days up until the engine is started to charge the internal battery supply)
  • only 4 wires is needed to connect it on your vehicle
NOW the CONS

we all know CHEAP means..you get what you paid for

CONS
  • poor GPS satellite lock in. Having problems to to get a fix satellite that will enable the GPS track location of the unit, since it has no external antenna provided due to sleek design, poor GPS signal is what you will get.
  • Ain't WATERPROOF..so if you are installing this on a motorcycle, make sure you cover it with ZIPLOCK plastic.
  • Installing it near any metal part of your vehicle is a NO-NO..when i do found a fix satellite for the tracker and put it near a metal on my motorcycle, GPS led indicator stop flashing indication of GPS satellite searching again.
  • If it was not directly registered by the supplier to their own global positioning system tracking system, You will not have any means of tracking the unit when you do registered online, it will only tells you..: NO data receive by the GPS blah blah blah" in other WORDS...."OFFLINE"
Up until now, SMS alarm is GOOD..(A-OK)...but the GPS tracking of the unit is a PAIN in my head..still when it comes to remotely disabling the entire ignition system works 99%..

With 5 star rating of the unit..I'd go for 2.5, the lower idle current consumption is great when it comes to waiting for anything to not good happening outside when you are not near your precious vehicle.

Shogun PRO FD125XRM Service Manual

FD125XRM is the second generation Shogun made by Suzuki being the Shogun 110 as the first. FL125 the 3rd generation, and the AXELO as the last generation on their line-up. Apparently, the last revision was only introduced in Indonesia and we are still hoping to enter the Philippine market anytime.

The second shogun was my ride up to this writing and at 10 years old I'd say, it was really durable and very reliable, thanks to Suzuki for that.

General maintenance of this model isn't that difficult actually. The speedometer panel is digital so there is no speed cable attachment that breaks easily. Timing is always right, of course it uses a Digital DC-CDI that unknown to many riders out there. The VM18SS fuel and air delivery system is quite impressive too. The only downside of this generation of shogun compared to FL125. It does not have a crank balancer like those fitted to FL125 (3rd gen shogun) hence engine produces too much vibration at very high RPM, nonetheless, what power is for without able to feel it with your feet (LOL).

This model was already been phased out by Suzuki in this country, and only few are left running at the very top. Others have the problems of the third gear getting the crackling gargled sounds when engage within the transmission. (well i don't).

Want to service your own 2nd generation Shogun 125, maybe this site will help you achieve what i have for the last 10 years. I wanted to translate it in English but with those illustration and step by step pictures will allow you to understand it hopefully. Enjoy this service manual.

Do you want to have a copy and tired of looking at the preview window
