In absence of a "GPS devices" forum, here's where I am. I have a 2degrees monthly plan which offers data, txt, calls, all rolling over. I have purchased a GPS module and a $5 SIM card from 2 degrees and set up data sharing with the phone account. After a bit of messing around - mostly because the GPS module seems to have a dud GSM indicator LED - I can send commands to the unit with SMS messages. The unit would normally respond to the SMS messages (and it does so successfully if I use my phone's SIM card instead) but because I didn't share SMS it can't send the replies. It does seem to action incoming commands via SMS however.
Now if I want the GPS unit to have a send SMS capability as well, 2Degrees want $25 per month. There are other options as well but all of them involve a monthly spend of some sort. Now I believe these units can use the web to send data also, but I can find precious little on how you set this up. Can anyone shed some light on this?
I would be interested in comments from anyone who has one of these units on the 2 degrees network.
