  • Can I please have a cheaper version without GPS

  • This is theoretically possible but the supplied code doesn’t have this functionality. You would need to programme it yourself.

  • The code looks like it has some network supplier specific stuff hard coded in (Cingular) and so you may need to recompile in order to use a different network supplier.

  • A pre-pay SIM card should work fine, just watch your GPRS connection availability out in the boon-docks.
    The triggering so that it only sends after a txt message from you would not work out of the box, you would have to programme that but ask SparkFun to add it to a future version.

  • The cellular module is GSM and so any supplier that uses GSM should work, not sure about the US (you have some unusual cellular stuff over there) but most of the rest of the world uses GSM and so I guess it is set up to use GSM so that it has the widest possible market.

No public wish lists :(
