Simply insert a GSM sim card into the GPS unit. Whenever you call the unit it will respond with the coordinates of its location thru a SMS message. You can then use these coordinates on any mapping software (for example google earth) which will show where exactly the unit is located.With some little setup, you can also have the device to send the data directly to a computer thru GPRS and display its location on a map with our bundled software for real-time location tracking.

i'm a bit confuse.... the said SIM card has to have a tel. #.. hence a monthly payment or some subcription with a cell provided..
i was looking at this one..http://www.loc8tor.com/Store/product...e,154,110.aspx which will be handy with this tracker or some osd with gps co-ordinates..

This guy attributed his crash to glitching caused by a GPS enabled cell phone installed on his plane. This is basically the same thing this device is. I would not try it.

It did not show any significant range reduction while in stand-by mode.
However, while receiving a call, it led to a failsafe. Moving the gps/gsm away from the Rx a few centimeters (10 or 20cm, I dont recall) solved it.
This will obviously vary according to the frequency of your gsm, type of rc rx, plane setup and radio's god mood at the moment.

Interesting. I guess if the plane is already on the ground it wouldn't matter. Still, I don't think I would risk it....at least not without some serious testing. in any case, if it take any sim card, a cheap pay as you go sim could be used to keep the cost down.

Yes - simple pre-paid phone from Walgreens / Wal-mart is about 12$ w/ 20 free minutes. If you never use it those 20 minutes can last a long time.
