Last year i purchased an AYNSUN GPS tracker.  It used a SIM card and was supposed to work by calling it and it woudl return its coordinates with a link to google maps.  It worked only when it wanted to, so i returned it thinking it was faulty.  The replacement was equally dissapointing.  
My question is:  What GPS tracker do people here like and have had good experinece with?  
Thanks.

I've tried 3 different GPS trackers. The nearest location I got was within a couple of mtrs but that was a 24 hour wait for it to respond. I've heard very good reports about the accuracy and YouTube reports are good. I have mixed feelings about them, I was getting reports telling me the tracker was moving 1100 mtrs away when it was stationary 2 feet in front of me (maybe dji software? Lol). I've given up on GPS and have a Marco polo on order. The GPS trackers were not reliable enough for me. A tracker of some description is better than nothing,and finding your drone 24hrs later is better than a total loss. Good luck

I love my Flytrex Live 3G but it won't work for the newer Phantoms

I use the Trackimo 3G, like it very much. Free service for the first year, then it's $5. per month.

It would be interesting to know if the Trackimo deal works outside of the US though..... I don't think it would.

I believe it's world wide. Just a different currency exchange.

I don't use a gps tracker. Since according to the faa you must keep the aircraft withen line of sight, you should not need it. But what I recommend is a marco polo tracker. I heard good reviews about that tracker somewhere around the internet, but what do I know? I have never flown out of line of sight.

I have trackimo and I'm loving it since I bought it. I haven't encountered any problems with it and plus I can easily use my phone to track it.
