Customer Reviews for Oxford Tracker
Poor infrastructure but does the job
The tracker works as you'd expect but the infrastructure supporting it could do with an update. Be aware that you'll need to pay a monthly fee for the service on top of the fixed price for the device. The site www.dantracker.com which hosts the tracking UI is not served over https, which means if you're browsing to it over public wifi, anyone can see your user credentials and GPS coordinates of your tracked vehicles. Emailing their support address about this revealed that the address was no longer maintained.Read more
Not bad for money
For price and ease of fitting I feel its a good product. Only down side is that I tried to track my motorcycle while in the back of the van and could not get a position only when it was out the van. It must be due to the metal van effecting signal.Read more
So far ... so good
I wanted a tracker I could move between bikes and this fitted the bill. It does everything you'd want or need. The only gripe ... lack of instructions. The tracker arrives in a box with no instructions or links to download. After a good hour of searching, I had to contact Oxford direct who sent me a copy of the instructions via email. Then, for you to track, you have to download the app - but the lite version is useless so have to pay out for the full version...in the grand scheme of things £12.99 is nothing but when you've spent £200, then £60 to register the device, having an app that just works without an additional charge would have been a nice touch. It tracks well and knows where you are so all good.Read more

Sleep mode; this is the default mode which provides a tractable location after the tracker has been still for 5 minutes. New locations are only provided if the tracker is moved to a new location. Live mode; under set-up you can put the tracker in live mode, which means that you receive a new position every 5 minutes, providing the tracker is moving. Geofence mode is a geographic (geofence) area around the tracker. If moved beyond this area, the user automatically receives an email message about the movement. You will receive a new position every 5 minutes, providing the tracker is still moving. It will show a track bearing line from the geofence area to the new location. Alarm mode if you need to report a stolen object, you can do so by activating the alarm button and entering your password. Your secure mark, which is always included, will now be shown stolen in the system.
