    Is Anyone used a GPS tracker? how reliable is it in a marine environment.

    Was longing for GPS trackers for trucks at my job and saw some models that value $99 for the device and $99 a year for satellite trailing each five to 60min. they have AN adapter for DC power and once the sailing boat battery runs out the device will report its position for twenty-four to fifty days on its own batteries.

    Was simply curious what individuals consider them, value it? or simply sorta fun toys.

    Not sure I understand what you want it to do for you. Perhaps you should consider an AIS transponder.
