Trackimo - Track your Moto (review)

I love my bike. If anyone f**ks with it, I want to know, right away. If someone is trying to steal it, or the city is trying to tow it, the sooner I know the better. I've owned and tested the Spot Trace, and I've looked heavily at the Scorpio Ride system. I recently stumbled upon the Trackimo system, and i was intrigued. Trackimo agreed to send me a review unit. I've had it for a few weeks now, How does it compare? Read on..

Seems like it will do the trick for me! We have something similar for sale in Finland for 300, so this is way more affordable and sensible deal for me.
I have a Tiger xcx on order, waiting for the ice hazard to pass and then can start testing out stuff

Looks good you could almost use it as route tracker without the emergency notification abilities of say the Spot.
One question. Does the device need to be mounted with a clear view of the sky? Could you for example mount it in the tail section of a bike or behind a plastic panel?

Behind plastic panel.
I forgot to mention that it does have an SOS button that can be programmed to contact whoever you want.

Great! If you're going to order it please use the Amazon link on my review page :)

Excellent review and probably enough to make me try it out (I'll use your link). One humble recommendation: re-proof your blog. There are enough grammar, syntax, and spelling errors that it detracts from an otherwise professional looking effort.
