Also, the tracker supports turnings. It will update the positions automatically to web server once the direction is changed over pre set angle (30 degrees) to form a smooth trajectory consistent with the actual road, this function is only effective in GPRS mode.

    This model is a successor to a tradition of Coban AVL trackers. It is simple, it is cheap and it is reliable enough.
    You should not wait advanced options and extra features from this device, but the price is adequate.

    Fortunately, Coban did a nice job with the newest design of GPS303, because GPS103 looks monstrously.

    This tracker is quite good and accurate in case you are looking for a budget device for a basic GPS tracking. The design is rather fancy and it is one of the factors most people opt for it. Moreover it is simple to mount.
