    Hi, I've just bought an TK102B GPS-tracker. I don't want it permanently attached. I'm more into velcro somewhere. Anyone who has any ideas where to mount it (its not waterproof)?

    Under the seat, in a plastic bag?

    No need for a plastic bag under seat cause it never gets wet. Unfortunately the GPS-signal is most likely blocked

    Give it a try; you might be surprised.

    How do you plan to use it?  E.g. just via text messages, or via the website?

    Just via text messages. It holds functions like geo fence or shock

    Yes it certianly is. I've tried at least 5-6 chinese crap trackers. Half of 'em arent GPS-trackers. They only report in LBS (Location based service). Accuracy is approx 400 meters. Unreliable that needs a reboot every now and then etc. So, buy chinese crap if you lack of frustration in your life and need some...
    Otherwise, buy quality. AFAIK minifinder (original) seems to work good, but are a bit expensive but could be worth it. Even their live tracking are very expensive. It's not even an option unless you own UPS. But goin for quality seems to be the only option.
