What’s remarkable about this Auto Sentinel GPS Tracker device is not the specification – it’s a pretty standard fix and forget car GPS tracker with quadband GSM SMS communications – or even the fact that it comes with ‘choke engine’ and remote microphone car cabin monitoring features. Nope, the standout is the price. At just $98.12/£60.65 this unit makes a mockery of all those x000 dollar units which the vehicle security companies are selling. Amazing.
The Auto Sentinel utilizes a mainframe box with SIM card slot. The slot accepts any quadband GSM SIM card – translation, this car protection system can be used anywhere in the world. The mainframe and SIM card functionality allows you to send text message commands to the number associated with the main frame SIM card. Examples of commands include: Cut gas and battery power to immobilize engine (when the car slows to 30 km/h), monitoring car cabin through included speaker, and two way voice communication through included speaker and MIC.
