Look at the new Siren MTC. It will do everything you need and company may give you a fleet discount.

Siren will have contracts in place with MotoPhone in the next week or so. They currently are set up in Turkey via MotoPhone and it could with paperwork and proper Sim card work that way. Sounds to me that if you order them, by the time you receive them Egypt will be up and running.

I have a tracker by AtlasTrax USA. They'll ship anywhere and the customer service is top notch. I'd highly recommend them.

did siren ever finally get their new product out the door? if so, any real world feed back? looked like the price was increase substantially when i checked the website months ago while it was still pending release..

there was a thread a few months back where a guy mentioned that he made his own device on the cheap using arduino or Raspberry Pi. just basically add gps module, cellular module, write some code, and boom apparently you get something like a siren product for a fraction of the cost

Standard Horizon's "Group Monitor" function may also meet your needs depending on what you are looking to do. Their HX870 handheld and GX6000 series radios support this functionality. The position of every vessel in your group appears on the radio, and on your chart plotter as well.

I assume you want to monitor your boats from your dive shop, if it is located in a good location near the water where you can get an antenna up high, this may be a solution for you.

Price is the same its always been, actually they offered a upgrade to me for 50% off. The Pixie unit I had was 3 years old and they still offered me 50% off. Good people trying to keep their customers out of the dark with the 2G shut down
