Product page on Xexun site : >> link <<


Hello,
one oft most actual GPS-Trackers currently is the "TK102" from company XEXUN in China. This unit is offered at relatively low prices and by using a lot of different product names ( e.g. via EBAY ).
Inside is a GPS/GSM-Modul "MC55" or "MC56" from SIEMENS with using SIRF3 GPS-Receiver chips.
Simply the "TK102" can respond to polling calls, but it also can be configured for sending in certain time intervals or after moving. Besides this there also is a geo-fence mode and a way for listening to it's build in microphone. Reply messages can via SMS or GPRS.

I am just doing my first steps with "TK102" and up to now only did test it's SMS functions.
Polling so far did run without problems, but i found, there ONLY was a reply in case "TK102" did have an actual GPS-Fix. Nevertheless also invalid positions seem to be stored within it's memory, because when pushing the SOS-Button while there is no FIX, the Tracker is sending it with being marked as OLD messages ( signal:L ).
It would be interesting for me to hear about this behaviour and general experiences with "TK102" also from others.

Klaus

Purchased the TK102B from China. Followed all the instructions and the Lat/Long doesn't change when the car is moving. It shows zeros even the date and time is zero. Set up the time zone and still nothing. What do I do to get if fixed and may be this GPS is a clone.
guy_le_gamesh Posted - 03 sept. 2014 : 19:34:34
Maybe have you registrer the same admin number several times ?
You should check that. Open the file user_config.txt to do that.

Yet it's normal to receive multiple sms as we can read it in the user manual (for Coban GPS102B) : "In case of such a movement (the default distance is 200m), it will send SMS “Move+ latitude & longitude” to the authorized numbers at 3 minutes interval."

Edit : I tried to send you the weblink by mail to my seller but I get this message from gpspassion : "Due to abuse this feature has been restricted, please use the forums for your questions and answers, thanks"
tekfrank Posted - 03 sept. 2014 : 16:36:47
Please tell me, i am very interested if you really get only 1 sms when car moves.

With the TK102 it seems normal to get 1 sms everytime the car stops, i checked everywhere.

guy_le_gamesh Posted - 01 sept. 2014 : 23:37:47
XT011 is a recent tracker with this function :
Track by time Interval (5 secondes) , Track by distance Interval.
Monitor.
Movement alarm.
Shake alarm.
Overspeed alarm.
SOS alarm.
Low battery alarm.
Cut off the oil and circuit over the air.
Upgrade software over the air.
History trace ,GEO-FENCE.
There is an other function I like : if the tracker is removed from the battery of the vehicule you receive an alarm
+ ACC alarm --> very useful

With Xexun, the platform tracking is free and great.

I bought it in France. I do not know if it is allowed on this forum to make a link to a website. If you want I can give you the link by email but I'm not sure that the seller ship abroad. Yet there is one video on the website, you can see the Xexun platform.
tekfrank Posted - 01 sept. 2014 : 23:16:59
What is Xexun XT011 ? where to buy it ? thank you.
guy_le_gamesh Posted - 01 sept. 2014 : 22:37:39
With my Coban GPS102B (=TK102-2)I get many sms like you if I don't send to the tracker : "nomove123456"
With my Xexun XT011 I get only 1 sms.
tekfrank Posted - 01 sept. 2014 : 22:32:37
YEs U have activated move alarm BUT it should send me only 1 SMS when the car moves ! Not 2 or 5 sms everytime when the car stops ! Am I wrong ? Thanks for your help.
guy_le_gamesh Posted - 01 sept. 2014 : 22:25:01
Hi Tekfrank,
What SMS do you get when the car moves ? Maybe have you activate "move" alarm ? to stop this alarm : nomove123456
tekfrank Posted - 01 sept. 2014 : 22:20:22
Thank you for your reply.

So you think I should use TK102 in GPRS mode with the code that you shared ? It works fine and is easy to use ?

I was scared to use GPRS as SMS was already not so reliable...


barbudor Posted - 01 sept. 2014 : 21:59:30
I never used the MOVE alarm nor the SMS mode.
I am using it in GPRS with my own grown server (based on the code I shared on this forum - search : tk2www).
I was considering doing my own tracker to fully control its features, already purchased the parts for the prototype but still standing somewhere in a box around here. Procrastination is such a pain
tekfrank Posted - 01 sept. 2014 : 21:50:00
Hello, so happy to know that this forum is not dead !

Have you been using TK102 for a long time ? I only use it for SMS but i always get more than 1 SMS when the car moves, is it normal ?

Thank you so much.
barbudor Posted - 01 sept. 2014 : 21:42:03
Hi

As far as I know the file I shared is complete : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AtQofkYKWsMudDVHTi1ZNjI4emxlTVlhc3V1RWpsc0E&usp=sharing
However I never played with commands from server to tracker.

Commands/answers concerning the MOVE alarms seems to be on line 44 and 43

I think that to enable the MOVE alarm you should send :
**,imei:359586018966098,G

And to disable all alarms (can't disable a single alarm):
**,imei:359586018966098,E


In column A that should be the tracker's answer.

Worth a try

However, I only own a TK102, not TK102B. So I am unsure if these commands apply fully to the B version.
I got this file from Coban support themselves, so it might worth just to kindly ask.


@tekfrank : I didn't replied because I don't know for sure how to do it.
If your phone is Android, look if "GSM Trinket" can do SMS automation.
There are also other automation tools for Android that might allow you to script something.


Best regards
tekfrank Posted - 01 sept. 2014 : 10:29:20
Hope you will get a faster reply than me :-)
gpstracer Posted - 01 sept. 2014 : 09:52:41
greetings all, i'm a new user to this forum, i have been reading a lot and got a lot of information from here to get me started before i gotten myself one tk102b, seems like coban.

i used own server with bro barbudor code, it has worked great. now i am trying to send command to tracker through gprs. i can send to enable/disable tracker position update.

however my question is, what is the command to activate 'Move' through gprs (like in sms "move+password <distance>") so that when it moves it alert through gprs and sms?

Looked in the gprs data protocol, only cancel move is provided. Is there a more complete list?

I have developed a software to send "commands" to the tk-102. As kokos said, you cant send "at commands", but instead you send the commands like it was a SMS message.
Now you dont have to pay sms's to your cellphone company anymore to test your device :)

Here you go - Instructions how to use:

1. You must have a USB cable (that 2 cables, one short and one long cable).
2. Make sure your cable is correctly configured and instaled on a specific com port.
3. Connect your tk-102 device on the LONG usb cable.
4. Open the software, chose your com port.
5. Write up the command you want to send to the device on CONTENT column
6. Click with your mouse on the SELECT column, in the right side of the command you want to send (a "V" should appear)
7. Click Start Test.
8. Wait few moments and you will see on the log window some initialization commands and right after your command will be sent.
9. A answer for your command will appear on the log window and will be written on Result column as well.
10. Have fun :)

Hello,

Sorry I cannot find your software ?

Where is it now ?

Thanks.
tekfrank Posted - 12 août 2014 : 23:59:58
Sorry also, I do not know if I have the real official TK102 or a copy, how to know ? Can you tell me what is the price of the real one now ? As I bought mine quite cheap ? Thanks for all.

TK102 GPS Tracker Geofence Automatic Daily Setup Without Request ? (wihout having to send a sms everyday to set the alarm/alert)



Hello,

Thank you for accepting me.

I am sorry if it is not the correct place to ask but I am new to GPS tracking and have bought a TK102 GPS tracker

I setup geofence and get SMS when the tracker moves.

But I have to send a SMS everyday to setup the alert because once the GPS tracker has moved (and when I get the alert) the alert system is diasbled until the next time I set it.

Do you know any device or how I could automatically set an alarm everyday, for example from 8am to 8pm ?

Once a day I would like to get an SMS if the GPS tracker has moved during that time. But I don't want to request this function as I might forget to send the SMS to request.


Thank you for your help.

I have also used previously other 3.7V batteries which did not come with the right connector for the tracker, so I had to solder their connector on the inside battery connectors. I also had to make a small hole on the tracker cover so the cable would go outside, and this of course made it unable to use the internal battery, since its connector was being used already.

Please list all the commands in order - starting from begin123456


Does my server need to take any action at any time - other than just revieve all of the positition reports sent in time order from the tracker?






I discovered that this fu.... TK102-2 does not record ANY logs on the SD card. It's only a buffer.

How/from where you install your own tracking web server ?

What is the tool you used ?

Many thanks for any reply ...

"GPS NO" means it's not getting a GPS fix so based on your description (under the blue sky) it does sound like it's defective, hopefully you can send it back?

Just found this old link that is still working : TK-102 cable & connection
Using simple USB/TTL converter like these ones : ebay: USB TTL converter
krister Posted - 07 juil. 2013 : 19:17:32
@tsk1979,

Both connectors are the same, but the pin connections are not. One connector is used for flashing the firmware, the other one is used for reading data from the tracker (debuging).

gpspassion Posted - 07 juil. 2013 : 19:04:10
Not sure what that cable does honestly, looks like a "mod" ?

It shows two cables. I think one is micro usb. Other is also a variation(though its not the common version)

tsk1979 Posted - 01 juil. 2013 : 07:26:30
I have a question about power supply. Does it take power via a micro USB port/mini usb port? If so that means I can use any USB charger with a cable.
If its proprietary, then it means only the supplied cable can be used.
algie Posted - 09 mai 2013 : 16:13:25
apperently the function lowpowermode123456 1 functions only on the arm-7 chipset and on my 102-2 tracker its not functioning, so my question is how can i know if i have an ARM-7 chipset?[ed]
maltouille Posted - 02 mai 2013 : 10:55:18
ok thank you!
krister Posted - 02 mai 2013 : 10:33:05
Then it seems a defective unit if it does not even connect to GSM network, contact your seller.
maltouille Posted - 02 mai 2013 : 10:29:32
thank you for your support,
I change the Sim card
I make sure that the SIM card works perfectly on phone
I also verify that there is no PIN
but this does not change
krister Posted - 02 mai 2013 : 10:15:23
If the led is flashing quickly all the time, that means the tracker is not registering correctly on the GSM network. Did you remove the PIN code from the SIM cards, and have you checked that they work ok on a mobile phone?
maltouille Posted - 02 mai 2013 : 08:56:21
hello,
thank you for your reply,
I call 2 times maisil do this nothing happens
the LED is still flashing

Can those of you from the USA give some suggestions on what SIM cards you have purchased and what the cost is? Thanks.

Then there isn't much you can do. If you were to flash the wrong firmware, you would end up with a bricked unit, and you would not have the original firmware to flash it back.

Maybe you can just mount an ON/OFF switch below the dashboard and use the tracker without the internal battery, so at least you can easily restart the unit.
Tezaman Posted - 12 nov. 2012 : 19:44:58
Seller doesnt exists any more..
krister Posted - 12 nov. 2012 : 16:08:45
Contact the seller and ask. I really can not tell you any other way to know the manufacturer, I have long stoped using any clones because they gave me too many headaches.
Tezaman Posted - 12 nov. 2012 : 15:48:38
Thanks Krister..
What do you suggest to identify more info about my tracker?and choose the Right firmware. open it up? check IMEI?
Thanks in advance
krister Posted - 12 nov. 2012 : 15:38:40
@Tezaman,

If you need a firmware, you must get it from your tracker supplier. Not all trackers use the same hardware, so you need to get the firmware for your hardware, just a "tk1 firmware" will not cut it, it needs to be the firmware for the tracker you have.

Also, not all firmwares use the same commands, it seems that yours does not have the command "reboot".
Tezaman Posted - 12 nov. 2012 : 15:35:36
Also could someone tell me a good source of latest firmware for tk102? i have all the necessaries hardware (rs232 adapters)
Tezaman Posted - 12 nov. 2012 : 14:28:59
Hello guys..
I have a TK102 Clone from Ebay. I hard wired it in my car below dashboard, takes continues 5v from car charger.
The problem is that after 3 or 4 days , it sends me Old Coordinates, specifically sends exactly the same message from 2 days ago when i test it even the date is the same!...
to solve this problem i have to take battery off and back on.

The SMS reboot123456 to remotely reboot the device unfortunately don't work..
Any help will be appreciated , thanks in advance

Hello,

how can I backup the firmware?

Thanks for the info barbudor!
barbudor Posted - 01 nov. 2012 : 15:56:07
So TK102 is your best bet Mr Bond
You may activate real-time tracking only when you need it by sending the appropriate SMS messages.
It should come with a magnet back but as said, if it is covered by metal, then efficiency will definitively drop.
These devices are small with small antennas which requires quite view to the sky.
m3talman Posted - 01 nov. 2012 : 14:27:42
Thanks for the reply. The target must not know he is being tracked, and I won't have access to the inside of the vehicle, so I can't go with the TK103. I need something that can be affixed to the outside of the car but hidden from view so that the target is unaware of the tracking device, which is why the TK102 caught my eye. Can you recommend any alternatives that would work for my situation? Real time tracking would be nice but if need be, on-demand SMS will work.
barbudor Posted - 01 nov. 2012 : 10:16:49
hello
Under the car body is a bad idea. The tracker which includes the antennas (GPS and GSM) shall have the best clear view as possible.
Inside the bumper could be ok if not metallic.
Good locations can be inside the dashboard close to the front window.
However this might not be an easy location for a TK102 which shall probably be removed for battery charging.

My experience is that with active GPRS real-time tracking, it will last around 6 hours with a new battery. As usual, the battery live will decrease with time to half its original value within 2-3 years.
If you are not tracking real-time, only on-demand SMS, then battery shall last for a few days.

For a car, you might consider TK103 or alike models which will make use of the battery car.

Note that I never try to continuously power the TK102 from battery car (using a 5V USB adapter) so I can't confirm this will keep the battery charged.
m3talman Posted - 01 nov. 2012 : 02:24:40
Forgive me for not reading through all 172 pages of this thread, but how well does this unit work for tracking cars? If placed under the body, in the grill or front bumper area, or wheel well, will it have sufficient signal? Is the battery life long enough to track all day?

I just got one of these (ebay so perhaps a clone or fale or something?!) and can not get it to work so any help is appreciated.
I put the batty in and the blue led flashed eery 3 seconds .... The on off button seems to do nothing!
I text begin123456 to it and received nothing back....
The sim i purchased and put in had the sim disabled so i am at a loss as to what to do?!
Send it back and buy another one from elsewhere perhaps?!
Suggestions really are appreciated!,

Hi

for error I put the firmware of a TK102 on a tk102b.
Now the tracker responds to messages but does not give me the GPS coordinates.
Where can I download the correct firmware for the tk102b?
thanks

I can read the firmware from a working tk102b ?
barbudor Posted - 14 oct. 2012 : 10:39:04
What about GeoTrack24 and GpsServer.net ?
GpsGate's BuddyTracker free account service has unfortunately closed.

Are you looking for a running web service or an application to run on your own server ?
mhpdk Posted - 14 oct. 2012 : 10:24:32
@Barbudor

maybe it is just me ? i fond you link. but i cant find a running free tracking service, where i can connect my TK102 so i can track my car. can you help a bit more ? ;)

I've not done such test so far, but I could try to compare a track-record with OziExplorer with tracker's data.




The raw logs seem to be off. I made an excelsheet to recalculate the time (-40 seconds) and that matches exactly with the endomondo log. I even used a third logger.

Contratulations, community and moderator!
barbudor Posted - 06 oct. 2012 : 12:25:30
@Johnny
If you change the SIM in the tracker, this does not prevent the tracker to send SMS to the same old phone. Just like it is not because your friend has changed the SIM in its phone that it can't call you anymore. The number to send SMS to is stored in the tracker, not on the SIM.

If you change the SIM in your mobile phone, you will have to re-initialize the tracker. Normally a "begin123456" shall be enough.
You will have then to declare you new mobile phone number as the admin number in the tracker.

Both are fully independant.


@mhpdk
Look into the "Index" topic (see my signatures).
there is a lot of Web services and software listed which includes free ones.

Hallow i am new and need some help to my tk102

is there any free tracking service or software i can put on a server. to setup my tk102 ?
i can only find program where i need to buy a license. any freeware out there ?

Johnnybravo1 Posted - 06 oct. 2012 : 00:26:45
Thanks!
My question is - ok I insert a new SIM, but what about the phone number memorized on the GPS tracker unit that is the one to reply when you send three commands.
For example:
The unit is 999-887766 and the phone that has been used is 666-555444.
The number that sends SMS to the GPS requesting services is not in use anymore, neither is the unit SIM number.
I change both.
What happens next?
barbudor Posted - 05 oct. 2012 : 21:36:53
Johnny
You have to put the new SIM and send SMS to the new number.
Only GPRS settings are operator specific. If the new SIM works, the tracker should receive SMS on the new number.
Johnnybravo1 Posted - 04 oct. 2012 : 23:02:42
I have the Xexun idle for a long while and my SIM chip must be replaced for other. Therefore all the setting must be reset to factory defaults. How do I reset the chip so it can understand the new SIM and phone line? I cannot simple send an SMS to the unit, because its SIM chip is not working any longer.

markwilde Posted - 01 oct. 2012 : 22:48:34
Does anyone know how accurate the TK102-2 is combined with GPRS? The timing seems rather random. I set it to 5 second tracing and it sends it with varying intervals.

When I compare the trace with my Endomondo app (samsung omnia 7) then there is a 30 to 40 seconds difference. Anyone familiar with this phenomenon?

I hide my TK102 inside my car's chasis (to prevent thief from finding it to easily). It is covered (screened) with a lot of steel around. If you're right about antenna location, then it faces down in my car. And yet it reports full GPS signal and gets "cold" fixes in approx. 10-20 seconds. I was shocked to find out that it works that fine in such " troubled environment"! :]
barbudor Posted - 17 sept. 2012 : 19:32:08
Hi Psekinho

The tracker opens a pure TCP socket and sends messages in ASCII form (or some trackers in binary). This is not a URL request that could be forwarded directly to a Web server.
You need a software to receive this messages and interpret them. You can have a look at my sample simple gateway here : http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=144972
krister Posted - 17 sept. 2012 : 18:09:40
@psekinho,

It sends raw data.

@barbudor
Hi, thanks for the suggestion and help. I will discuss with my developer about it, will share with you should there be any news.
barbudor Posted - 24 août 2012 : 16:12:49
Hi crl_ng

On my model, GPRS and SMS are exclusive. I can't get a SMS when I am in GPRS Mode and if I switch to SMS mode, I am loosing GPRS updates.

If you are working with a developper, I believe you may have some ability to check with in if this is a problem of the Web application or the tracker stopping sending you data.

Other way, I could help you setting up a very simple software solution to directly receive the tracker's data on your PC so you will see if you receive data when static or of the tracker stops sending data.
If you are on Windows, you should get this software : http://joncraton.org/media/files/nc111nt.zip (from blog page http://joncraton.org/blog/46/netcat-for-windows)
Unzip to a directory
Supposing that you are at home and you have a DSL Internet access. You should be able to open a TCP port from Internet to your PC. For example choose 1990 (any value between 1024 and 65500 should work) and run the following command in a DOS command window (in the same directory you have unzipped above software) :
nc -l -p 1990

Then configure your tracker to send messages to your home on port 1990 (your home IP address would be given by such web site for example www.myipaddress.com)
You should see your tracker connecting and messages from the tracket would be displayed on the PC screen.

Hope this helps.
crl_ng Posted - 24 août 2012 : 10:37:34
@barbudor,

Was away for vacation, sorry for the late reply.

I suppose that was a misunderstanding on description for part 1 & 2.

As for walk test, data update was via GPRS to web portal. When I do not see any update for sometime using smart phone, I then decided to request location via sms. It is a one time off request and not a periodic sms messages. When replied SMS lat/long was plotted into smart phone map, it appears to be on updated position. What puzzles me was at the same moment, why the web portal did not receive updated data via GPRS like what SMS data does. Hope that explains ..


My developer friend is away till next weekend. Else, I will be able to share you the sequence message

Meanwhile, the tracker supplier just never replies my mail or chat message – guess I got conned over this clone stuff

barbudor Posted - 23 août 2012 : 15:43:12
format123456
is supposed to be a total factory reset on unit that supports it.
If your unit is a clone and not a genuine Xexun, it will not be supported.
Harperpi Posted - 23 août 2012 : 12:35:21
I would like to have the SMS code to set the tracker back to factory, cause mine is stuck in "Monitor" mode.

c) does anyone have a list of all commands for these products

I also managed to get a sms command (from technical people) that resets your password (or the wxlxy version, not tested with xexun) to 123456, should you forget it, however, all the useful info on this site there is no list compliled of available commands.

I plan on selling these products so i would like to get a list of as many commands as possible. I am happy to share the "reset password" command if someone can post a list of all known commands.

barbudor Posted - 19 août 2012 : 10:36:00
As said above, if there is no move/speed/fence alarm set and you have configured the tracker to send periodic location messages , then this is the built-in behavior of this unit.
Get a Xexun or Coban.

You can still list the exact list of configuration messages so that we check if we see anything.
Catalin Posted - 18 août 2012 : 07:15:15
Hi Everyone,

I have a Thinpax TK102B device that I bought from EBay.

I configured it for GPRS and it sends messages regularly to the monitoring website.

Unfortunately I have exactly the same issue described by "crl_ng" above:
If the device is moving at walking speed than the messages don't contain the updated GPS coordinates.
From my testing - once the speed of movement is above 10km/h the device will start sending the updated/correct GPS coordinates.

There is no filtering/speed alarms configured on the device or on the monitoring website.

Did anyone find a solution to this issue ?

Regards,
Catalin
matrixebiz Posted - 17 août 2012 : 16:36:54
Looks as though even calling it doesn't wake up GPS. I'm thinking of hooking up the direct car power plug for it so I don't have to worry about charging the bat once a week so what command can I send to just have it stay GPS:ON all the time? enable GPRS?

Thanks
barbudor Posted - 16 août 2012 : 11:57:05
@ulyza
No. These are standalone devices which send location messages through SMS or GPRS (Internet). They have their own MCU.

If you are looking something to connect to a MCU, you are most likely looking for a GPS/GPRS module that would connect through a serial link. Something like [url=http://www.cooking-hacks.com/index.php/shop/wireless/3g-gprs-shield-for-arduino-3g-gps.html]this[/url] (this is just an example, neither an advice that this particular product fits your need).
If you want to talk about MCU and GPS/GPRS module integration, this section of the forum would be more appropriate : http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=140
ulyza Posted - 16 août 2012 : 08:46:46
is this device can interface with microcontroller?
barbudor Posted - 15 août 2012 : 21:26:08
@crl_ng

Could you please describe a little more how you are testing ?

Is there any difference in the test procedure between walking and driving ?

AFAIK, when a TK tracker is in GPRS mode it does not send anymore SMS and when in SMS mode it does not update server through GPRS.

Also, when using GPRS mode with a server you should instruct the tracker to send periodic location messages. With a Coban track, the SMS to send to the tracker is for example "fix030s***n123456" and for a Xexun I beleive it is "t030s***n123456"
Without this, the tracker will send position to the server only when called (by phone) or in case of an alarm.

Seeing that you get new location only when driving above a certain speed or when calling your tracker, I would bet this is not a problem of StaticNavigation but you are just missing the fix/t command to instruct the tracker to send messages every xxx secondes.
You then get location only due to a move or speed alarm or a call to tracker.

Could you please list the exact sequence of messages that you are sending to the tracker from a "begin123456" and the reply you get ?
crl_ng Posted - 15 août 2012 : 18:00:22
@Barbudor: Many thanks for new piece of advice. It is getting interesting. It seems we have clone tracker then. The supplier showed me some convincing certificates and so on that I placed my bet into it. Damn!.. and I learnt about Xexun when I came to this forum

While waiting for reply on how to get into Static Navigation stuff, I would like to check if come across experience the situation I had.

During my walk I could not see new updates on the map (via web portal), I conducted a direct location demand via SMS. The reply was then plotted in my iPhone map – it showed exact new location. What cannot get straight here is if there is no latest positioning update available from tracker to web portal, why (with working gprs connection) the data is available using demand SMS request? This really puzzles me !!

barbudor Posted - 14 août 2012 : 11:56:01
While SiRF3 is quite old it is still one of the best chipset available.

This is very strange behaviour. It looks like the "Static Navigation" feature has been enabled which is a navigation device feature dedicated to filter out "gps ramdom vallues" when your car is stopped by traffic light or traffic jam. This feature shall not be enabled on a tracker and I don't face such problem with my Coban unit, nor any users of Xexun units have reported such problem.
Have you checked that you have a true Xexun or Coban unit ?
If you have a random clone, then you may not be able to do better.
crl_ng Posted - 14 août 2012 : 00:45:32
@barbodur
Thanks for the advice. I have done the setting as suggested. It still does not give any new update wih walking speed.
However, if i try te speed to 30km/h, the result is just fantastic.

Any more ideas to share? My friend told me that it is chipset SiRF3 that is not good enuf ..
Glad if you could share more .. :-)
ulyza Posted - 13 août 2012 : 15:10:55

barbudor Posted - 13 août 2012 : 12:39:18
@rompan66
Maybe if :
1) You speak Swedish
2) You can properly identify the tracker.

As of today "TK102" does not necessarily mean Xexun or Coban but any clone which all have a different syntax for the configuration messages.

@crl_ng
Your tracker might me in a "speed alarm" mode which generates location messages only if speed goes over a limit.
Can you check in your user manual if you have such feature ?

Have you tried resetting the unit with a "begin123456" or similar message ?

Hi All,

I have a TK102-2 tracker and the tracker works perfectly at driving speed with consistant updating data. However, I find that my tracker is unable to update real-time positioning at walking speed. The walk test was carried out at open space for more than 1km, but I kept seeing the same old position from the marker.

Does anyone have the same problem? Appreciate feedback and advice.

Thank you.

Kathy
barbudor Posted - 10 août 2012 : 14:55:00
Yes. "begin" is intended to re-initialize the unit which might also force a GPS cold search, taking longer.
matrixebiz Posted - 10 août 2012 : 14:35:04
Modertor edit: Don't quote the message just above

Ok, thank you, I'll try calling it instead of sending 'begin' or 'check' and see if that turns on GPS quicker.
barbudor Posted - 10 août 2012 : 12:42:57
@matrixebiz
Is your tracker a Coban one ?
If yes, my comments here above applies. The GPS will be shutdown after some time unless :
- a fix command for repetitive position messages (SMS or GPRS) has been issued
- a move or geofence alarm is enabled
If you want to prevent the GPS to sleep while not sending repertitive position messages, enable an alarm such as "move". This will force the tracker to leave the GPS on.
Otherwise, to wake up the GPS, just send a request for position by calling the tracker.
If it takes 5 minutes to recover position, this is because the tracker is not in a good location to receive proper satellite signals. Normally it should takes less then 1 minute, even less than 30 secondes.

testerics Posted - 10 août 2012 : 07:23:13
Can somebody help me please with last firmware available for my old Xexun TK102? I have problem with sattelite reception (very poor, after ~5 minutes from start).

Hello, so what is the quickest way to turn GPS back on? I usually send the begin command but that can take 5-20 min before I can get a GPS:OK

Hi All
Thanks to all who have posted over the years,I was able to make the right decisions and buy a Xexun that is not a clone.I bought it directly from the factory so I am sure it is genuine. I dealt with David at Xexun and received my order in just over a week in South Africa, outstanding service.
My question is about the GPS antenna, must it be mounted so that it can see the sky through a window or can it be hidden, under the dash or in the boot?
Thanks guys!

Hi everybody,
I'm looking for software for live tracking TK-102 WITHOUT internet connection.
I have a GSM modem for sending and receiving SMS and I want to be on tour without having to rely on a good internet connection that can load online maps fastly enough.
It might have to use openstreetmaps because it's possible to download the maps there (via the program "Vinking" e.g.)
I need nearly the same as phonetracker location center but there you can only work with google maps, that means you need an internet connection.
Any ideas?
Thanks a lot!

barbudor Posted - 25 juin 2012 : 17:41:09

On the Coban, you can send commands through the return path. You cannot connect to the unit as you don't know its IP (and however it does not listen to incoming socket). But when the unit connects to the server, you send send commands back to it through the socket. See for example how in my sample gateway I send LOAD and ON commands back to the tracker.
The same method can be used to transfer commands to the tracker. At least this works with a Coban. I don't know the GPRS commands for the Xexun.
krister Posted - 25 juin 2012 : 14:59:17
@sturb,

Try "format123456" for default settings (format+password).

I know TK102-2 can be configured with USB cable and I think it can also receive GPRS commands, but I have never tried it. I think with TK102 you can not do it.

1 - Is there a way to restore the complete defaults? I'm trying to setup 3 authorized numbers through a serial/usb connection but it says "admin fail".

2 - On the last page af the manual it says (something like): can be configured through USB serial connection and GPRS. I'm very interested in the latter. Does anyone now how to connect through GPRS to the device.
I'm guessing through the IP it gets from the carrier. But on which port? and which protocol? UDP?

barbudor Posted - 22 juin 2012 : 14:04:50
xinkai,
I gave you the command for periodic reporting in another topic and it is in the users manual :
Send SMS "fix<red><i>sss</i></red>s<red><i>nnn</i></red>n123456"
Where
- sss is the number of seconds between each report : between 010 and 255
- nnn is the total number of report to be sent. Use *** for infinite reporting
For example send "fix010s***n123456" for infinite reporting every 10 seconds.


xinkai Posted - 22 juin 2012 : 00:28:53
hi Technogoat,
Can you please share some more information on what you know about Coban TCP command format? for example, how to make it continue reporting with a 10s interval?

Thanks!

Note that the GPRS commands do not use the the same format as SMS commands.
eg
**,imei:<imei_number>,B

will tell the tracker to send its position just once

krister Posted - 19 juin 2012 : 23:58:20
Yes, the GPS remains alive, but I think that what drains more the battery is sending GPRS data. I have not done any tests since I hardly use only the internal battery, when I tested long ago with internal battery when sending with GPRS I would get about 12h sending every 60 seconds, and 24h sending every 5 minutes. I do not even remember if that was testing with TK102 or TK102-2, I think TK102, TK102-2 battery life is supposed to be a bit better.

If I have some time I will try to test again using TLIMIT to see if there is really a difference in battery life.
barbudor Posted - 19 juin 2012 : 22:43:47
Hi krister
But the GPS remains alive ?
On my Coban, even not using GPRS, just SMS mode, if I enable a move/geofence alarm, then battery draws in about 1 day.
If I don't enable move/geofence, then consumption goes down and battery stabds for 3-4 days.
I should make some measurments to make it obvious.
krister Posted - 19 juin 2012 : 22:12:56
I have many TK102-2 working 24h/day in GPRS mode without any problems. I do not use TK102 any more.

TK102-2 has TLIMIT command, which makes the unit NOT send GPRS data if it has not moved more than x meters since the last time it sent data. It is not a standby mode, but it does the job of saving a lot in battery usage and GPRS traffic.

Everything works fine for day ore two, then it like crashes and shows sms location
000000000000
Time 00:01:01
Date 00/00/11

It doesn’t show proper sms location and I can’t track it from the web. It happens every single day. I send reboot123456 and then it works about 1 day and crashes again.

I would like to now is this happening with xexun and coban tk102 devises or is it just Cozyswan clone problem that it stops working every day.

xexun and coban devices don’t have standby mode were they will shot down gps signal for example when device is not moving for 5 days ore so?

Anybody have same problem with clone?

As far as I know :
t030s***n123456 is for a Xexun device
fix030s***n123456 is for a Coban device

If your manual refer to / unit reply to "fix" instead of "t" then it is a Coban and not a Xexun.

Which means that you should look under the section "Coban GPS102" instead of "Xexun TK102" in gps-server.net

I found that later....Thanks.

what is the " t030s***n "
is it like the "fix030s***n"

I got no reply from the "t030s***n"
should it be t030s***n123456

Later,

Mark,

It is normal that the tracker appears as engaged. Unless you have enabled the "monitor" feature (if your model supports it), the tracker will never answer the call.
Beside this it is alsways recommended to disable voicemail on SIM used with trackers. To do so, you have to insert the SIM into a phone and follow telco instructions to disable all transfers (voice mail, etc ..). If you don't know how to do so, give the name of your telco so other NL users might help you.
I would advise using a "normal", basic GSM phone, not an iPhone as these gears are very special.

Note that the "monitor" feature (when supoprted) is exclusive with the "call for GPS SMS" feature.
In monitor mode, the tracker will take the call and allow you to listen to the surroundings using the embedded mic.
But it will not answer to call by a GPS SMS.

Hi,

does anyone use acc wire, for start/stop function? With default firmware, it doesn't send that information, but has any of you has different firmware that maybe supports this?

Thank you,
Mark Mulders Posted - 01 juin 2012 : 10:26:14
Today I turned off voicemail on my iPhone, send SMS to the tracker for Geofence, Speed Alert and Move Alert and it worked!!! Even all three of them at the same time. Got every 3 minutes a SMS for each of the alerts.

Still can't call the tracker. The answer is: "engaged we will connect you to voicemail or you can send a SMS".
Is it possible that I need to turn voicemail on the SIM-card in the tracker off as well?
krister Posted - 01 juin 2012 : 09:24:23
@Mark Mulders,

It is indeed a clone (that doesn't mean it should not be working, it should). If you bought in the Netherlands and are able to return it, I would do so and get a Xexun unit. For what you want to use it the move alert or the shake command on TK102-2 unit would be the easiest way to get the job done.
Mark Mulders Posted - 01 juin 2012 : 07:16:43
In addition to my post above:
When I call the tracker I hear it's engaged and I'm redirected to the Voicemail of the tracker.
Tried it over and over again, but no result.
By the way SOS isn't working either.
Mark Mulders Posted - 01 juin 2012 : 06:36:26
@Barbudor: thanks for your explanation, makes it very clear.
All I want is to get a SMS when my boat is moved, c.q. stolen. The boat is at rest on a trailer, parked ashore. So I don't need GPRS.
I tried Move Alert, Speed Alert and they don't work. Today I'm going to try Geofence.

When I set up the tracker I get SMS to confirm the settings. Also get a Low Battery message. But when I call the device I hear it's engaged. So there must be something wrong. I'm doing this for more than a week with the same results.
Also using the iPhone App: and Auto Track is the only thing that is working.

Bought the tracker in the Netherlands, and in the booklet is says it's from www.gpstrackerxy.com. Friends tell me it's a clone and therefore not working. In the meantime I was in contact with Xexun in China and they can send me a original one. Maybe not necessary though if I make mistakes with the settings.

Do you have an idea? Kind regards, Mark.
barbudor Posted - 31 mai 2012 : 23:04:10
Ok. In that case, the MOVE alarm is easier. The SMS will be sent if the device move over 200m (some models can configure this value)
krister Posted - 31 mai 2012 : 22:06:17
@barbudor,

I think Mark Mudlers wants the unit as anti theft for his boat. I guess that the boat doesn't move so quickly, so he would have enough with an overspeed alert that maybe will notify him if the unit is moving over let's say 50k/h, which would mean that someone is towing the boat on a road.
ok2pen Posted - 31 mai 2012 : 21:24:20
Ohhhh..I connected it to standart USB port - the notebook USB port is OK bu still must check if that TK-102 was
not damaged :(
barbudor Posted - 31 mai 2012 : 21:05:03
@ok2pen

This have been said over and over in this thread and other threads : The USB connector IS NOT a USB port. Do not connect to a PC or you may damage your PC or the tracker

Manufacturers have probably stupidly chosen this connector for price reason but it is not USB. It is a TTL Serial port. You need to find the right cable which includes electronics and will be recognized by your PC as a USB/Serial adapter. Multiple links to Ebay have already been given or search Ebay with keywords such as "GPS tracker cable" or "TK 102 USB cable".



@Mark Mulders

Treackers can work in 2 ways :
- SMS mode
- Internet (called also GPRS mode)

SMS mode is fine if you want to :
- get position on request (call the tracker to receive position by SMS)
- receive alarm SMS like move, stockade, overspeed

Internet/GPRS is suitable for real-time tracking with generally a representation of your position on a map.
This is achieved by configuring the tracker to send the messages through the Internet to a server which can be either :
- a web hosted application which can be commercial or free. See for example GPS Trace Orange
- a software running on your own server/PC
The CD includes nothing more than
- Tracker's manual
- Real-time tracking software to run on your PC (license may depend on the vendor)


As speed alert is done comparing with a value that you have chosen this is not a product to monitor your driving speed and avoid speedcams. The device is not aware of the maps, roads and legal speed limits.
What are you expecting from the speed limit ?
Mark Mulders Posted - 31 mai 2012 : 05:53:21
Is there anyone who uses the tracker 102 strait out of the box?
I have done what the booklet says: Initialization and Authorization. And the tracker tells me where he is when I ask him, both by SMS.
Why is there a need to install the little CD? I need a password, which I don't have. Put in Imei number several times, on the website www.gpstrackerxy.com that's in the booklet, and this is refused.
So I'm really stuck. I keep on reading this forum for hours and hours and see a lot of discussions and solutions but not for my problem.
All i need is Speed Alert. Please help me.
ok2pen Posted - 30 mai 2012 : 22:19:49
Edit by moderator : Please do not copy the message just above. Thanks

Thank you - so the problem is that I did not get 2 short pulses, that means that the tracker does not aquire GPS position yet. I´ll check it once more in some better open sky area.

Still one question regarding USB connection cable - I used standart USBmale -microUSBmale cable and there is no connection with the tracker so it´s not possible to use the program Paralist.exe (included on the small CD).The driver was installed O.K. in my Win 7. I have not some information about it in my manual as well.
barbudor Posted - 30 mai 2012 : 19:30:02
@ok2pen : There are so many TK102 clones out there that if your manual doesn't explain want the leds means, your out.
On my Coban:
- 1 short pulse means GSM ok, GPS not ok (aquiring).
- 2 short pulse means both GSM and GPS ok
- slow blinking : neither GSM nor GPS
Mark Mulders Posted - 30 mai 2012 : 17:40:55
In the manual that came with the tracker there is this website:
www.gpstrackerxy.com
Tried to register with the IMEI 359710040262355 from the tracker but that failed.
With such a registration I can install the program from the cd.
Who can be of any help?

The tracker is of no use as it is and the salesman doesn't give a proper answer. Spend € 117 all together for nothing.

Hello Mark,

Or shoud I say: hallo Mark :-). I've had the same problem using the TK103B and read for many hours on this forum. You should be able to find the solution for your problem on this forum. The hardest is to keep trying different commands. That's what we've (me and a friend of mine) have found out. Also try some opensource software instead of the manufacturers software.

Succes!

I can send a SMS to the tracker and the TK102 answers. I can ask its position and it will send it to me by SMS.
But not working is Movement Alert, Overspeed Alert, SOS button, etc.
I can send a SMS like speed123456 030 and the answer is speed ok! and that is it. Drove around in my car for hours at 100 km/hr, send all kinds of speed to the device and each time is speed ok! but no reply on speed exceed. Same Movement Alert, tried it for days but nothing happens.

My supplier suggest to install the program from the cd, but that asks for a ID and a Password. Where do I get those?

The tracker TK102 is going to be installed in a boat on a trailer ashore, using the 12V battery in the boat. So all I need is Movement Alert or Speed Alert.

Who can help me out?

You may find in the manual some troubleshooting information to understand the status of the unit vs the led flashing pattern.



Yes, the green LED is blinking about with the period of about 1 sec.
When it picks up the satellite system what period it should blink? In the manual I did not find about the periods.

I bought TK102 tracker from Germany but think it is a clone. The IMEI is not accepted at XEXUN website. Anyway I put SIM card and charged well the battery. Then sent reboot123456 then begin123456 then admin123456 my phone number and put timezone zone123456 -3. On all those smss I got positive replies to my phone. Then I put tracker outside under open sky and waited about 10 minutes. After that I called the tracker. There was one beep then hang up. This is OK but the problem is that NO ANY SMS with geo-info has come (as shown on picture in the manual). What is the problem?
c117cpt Posted - 27 mai 2012 : 19:22:03
Thanks.
I have not yet decided to buy a new device or accept this limitation :)

krister Posted - 27 mai 2012 : 18:30:25
With TK102 I kinda remember that the minimum time you could use was either 30 or 60 seconds, I do not use any more TK102 units, so I am not 100% sure.

With TK102-2 I think the minimum time is like 3 seconds, I have used them with 5 seconds many times without any problems.
barbudor Posted - 27 mai 2012 : 17:19:44
I own a Coban, TK102 (now GPS102) and I it keep the GPRS connection active all time.
I've used it with a GPS position refresh period down to 10 second.
c117cpt Posted - 27 mai 2012 : 15:27:47
I just tought there is a suitable firmware for me
As I monitored the communication through the usb cable it seems the 30 seconds means it waits half a minute after a connection to the server. And since a round (gather data, open connection, send position, close connection) takes almast another half a minute the overall interval will be nearly a full minute.
I read there are devices which can keep the connection open and send the data continuosly (or on demand). What are these ones?
Captain
krister Posted - 27 mai 2012 : 07:28:29
If you have used a Xexun firmware and you have not bricked the unit, it is probably an original Xexun device. TK102 uses an older (and slower) processor than TK102-2, so a lower refresh interval can not be used.

If Xexun web page says it is not original, it probably just is an old device from before they implemented the IMEI check on their page. All the devices they had manufactured before they put that system in place are not on the database, so they do not come out as original when checking there even when being from Xexun.
barbudor Posted - 26 mai 2012 : 16:55:59
At least if you are running on it a Xexun firmware, it should have the same specs as a original xexun, at least for the software.
If the doc from Xexun say that minimum period is 30s as krister suggest, then you know the answer..
c117cpt Posted - 26 mai 2012 : 16:12:16
Just checked the imei at xexun, and it is not a genuine device (just a compatible one :) ). Is there any chanche for a lower refresh interval?
barbudor Posted - 26 mai 2012 : 14:51:52
Definitively not a Coban.
Looks like a real Xexun. lucky.
c117cpt Posted - 26 mai 2012 : 14:30:21
Thanks for the answer!
I would not spend more if it is not neccessary.
The firmware is definitely not bricked the device since it sends the positions. The smses I sent were
begin123456
apn123456 xxx
adminip123456 xxx yyy
t030s***n123456
And here is a message what I get on the server: 1205261025,172,GPRMC,102557.000,A,4851.4673,N,00217.6778,E,0.45,262.40,260512,,,A*61,F,imei:357713012345678,97F
