GPS Tracker?

Does anyone even use GPS trackers hidden on their bike? I feel like I should, but not entirely sure my money would be well spent since the bike is effectively gone forever if it's stolen. My best bet would be to at least give the police an area to go sniffing around for trouble if they cared enough to follow up. Which I somewhat doubt they would...

Thoughts?

better than nothing but they cost like $30 / month - a good cable and lock is a better value

I was looking at getting a disk brake lock too, found some decent ones on amazon for $30. I also found these https://findmyscout.com/motorcycle-a...-gps-tracking/ and $20/mo with some really nice sounding features.

I use for 5 years GPS trackers TK102. Accuracy of 2 to 3 meters.
In order not to charge the internal battery I have a permanent charger on the battery of the motorcycle.

I have this one:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/MoniMoto-Mo.../dp/B072HV5SLQ

It seems to be available in EU only though.. Also, its not a live tracker, its a silent alarm. It places an automatic call the to owner in case of motions (without detecting the key fob), then sends gps coordinates every 5min. I have tested few times, its pretty accurate. Also, no wiring needed, it is powered by a replaceable battery which has got a year or so lifetime (unless it triggers every day).
Monthly fee is still free as the app is in beta mode yet but it will cost like £3-4 a month and that includes EU roaming.
I would say it worth for me, as an extra "something that makes you sleep better"

I have had the exact same one for about 5 years, bought it for the quad copter.
Iíve never ever got it to work!
