SMS Only – Location On Demand Tracking Option For The OBD150
The SMS only option allows you to obtain the location of your vehicle on demand.
SIM card activation for SMS Only Location
The SIM card supplied in the OBD150 box can be used with Telstra plans only. It is up to you to activate this SIM card with a SMS/voice plan of your choosing. If you would like to use a different carrier, they will supply you with a new SIM card.
Automatic recharge for Pre-Paid Plans
