VAN TRACKER UNIT
Includes connections for Vanagons with stock waterboxer engines or Vans with conversions such as Subaru, TDi, 1.8T, etc. If you have a Bostig Conversion using a Ford Focus engine, then this is not what you want.
READ ME FIRST
Please note that the kill switch requires a "hard-start" relay, but keep reading if you can't install one due to your "special" van. You can build one yourself or purchase a kit from uniWerks or other fine part suppliers.
"Hard-start" relays do not work with 1986-1991 vans with both automatic transmission and factory cruise control. It's also rumored that these relays don't play nicely with the GoWesty Auxiliary Battery Kit or the GoWesty Gear Reduction Starter, but I cannot confirm this. BUT...
Normally, Van Tracker will send an alert if someone tries to start your van while the kill switch is on. If you have auto trans and factory cruise (or if you already have a kill switch you love) you can use Van Tracker simply to get the alert. Or, you could wire Van Tracker to the door-open circuit so you are alerted when someone opens a door. See this blog post for more info.
I have reduced pricing for the first few months of sales! Once the word is out about this product, I will probably raise the prices. Yes, it's been tested thoroughly in the field - my beta testers love Van Tracker, and I hope you will too!
BUILT ON DEMAND
The parts for Van Tracker aren't cheap, so I am currently building Van Tracker units on a rolling basis:
- A customer purchases a Van Tracker
- I'm regularly ordering parts as orders come in and parts run low (there are 36 individual parts per VT unit!), as well as building and shipping units. Timing of shipping will depend on current parts inventory, but on average will be about a month.
- Around 2 months after the customer receives the unit, I will ask them to purchase a subscription
Yes, this tracker does require a subscription, just like your cell phone or any cellular-based tracker. I wanted to design it so that you could use the cellular provider of your choice, but for technical reasons, that was not possible.
The entire year-long development of this product has been a phenomenal exercise in patience, so I gratefully appreciate yours! I promise to be available via support for any questions, and update the VT Blog during this process.
