Amazon sell these if anyone`s interested or wants more info (See link below). One of my mates has one and rates it highly.
I'm getting quite a bit longer than a year out of the batteries by setting the regular "status" messages to once every 10 days (I think the default was daily)I have one on the SDR.
Saved my bike one time (in conjunction with a disc lock) when I was staying in a Premier Inn at Leicester. I was in the bar at just gone midnight when my phone went off. They saw me & 2 mates running from the hotel towards them, jumped into a car and drove off. They had broken the steering lock and cut through the chain I had on the rear wheel, linked to a chain on another bike. Alert on the Monimoto must have been sent when they broke the steering lock & lifted bike off of sidestand.
What they failed to notice was that I had a Road Lok fitted to the front wheel as well. They are a discrete bit of kit that are always with you, as they are permanently fitted to the calliper.
The only pain in the arse with the Monimoto is that you have to change the battery in it about once a year, which means retrieving it from its hiding place then replacing it.
Sounds quite good that, I thought it only kicked in when it was moved quite a distance and the gps saw it had moved. I’ll lookin to getting one.When touched & moved. If I leave my key fob in my key press, then brush past the bike in the garage, my phone will go off, and keep going off.
It does seem to take about 30 seconds to get the first call though.
If the key is in range (up to 10metres) then it shouldn't go off, but I suppose that range will decrease if there are stone walls involved etc. It has a motion sensor so doesn't rely on the GPS.Sounds quite good that, I thought it only kicked in when it was moved quite a distance and the gps saw it had moved.
