Inside Coban: Popular GPS trackers in a cut

  • Permalink  


If you search for GPS trackers in web-stores like AliExpress you will likely to notice a lot of devices manufactured by Coban. Although these devices are often top listed, there are so little verifiable details about them and even official Coban website does not help. We at Navixy decided to close the gap and enlist here all the actual Coban devices highlighting their features.

Coban GPS102

Coban GPS102 tracking device may be considered as a “root” of Coban product line. It is a classical budget personal GPS locator. It cheap, small and lightweight, has SOS button and mic, which all together make it so attractive for buyers.

It can be used for family care or pet tracking (on dog’s collar). However, the lack of the sensitivity and functionality makes it inappropriate for business use (for tracking of employees, goods, vehicles).

The goods:

  • Low price
  • Small and lightweight
  • Microphone

The bads:

  • Poor sensitivity, no A-GPS
  • No power saving modes
  • Low usability

Coban GPS103 series

GPS103 AVL (Automatic Vehicle Location) devices are well known for their low price. If budget is the main and limiting factor, Coban GPS103 models are a good choice. These GPS trackers provide a fair quality / price ratio and if you don’t require anything special, but just a basic tracking of vehicles, it worth the money.

Thought GPS103 devices can monitor vehicle sensors (including fuel level), it would be unfair to state that this device is suitable for professional fleet management. Coban GPS103 won’t give you the options for highly adjustable tracking and power consumption modes, harsh driving reports, A-GPS and multi-GNSS tracking, accurate fuel level measurement with digital sensors, driver identification… nothing like that.

Its modifications GPS103A and GPS103B have one difference. The model with “B” is complemented with a wireless remote controller for arming and disarming the alarm and sending SOS signal.

The goods:

  • Attractive price
  • Wide range of available sensors

THE bads:

  • No A-GPS and GLONASS support
  • Limited tracking modes and parameters

Coban GPS303

GPS303 represents newer generation of Coban vehicle trackers, based on the experience of GPS103 series. These devices are more compact and embedded with built-in GPS/GSM antennas, which simplifies the installation process. Thanks to the waterproof casing GPS303 can be used on motorbikes and boats.

The manufacturer offers several modifications:

  • GPS303-B with minimum functionality and maximum simplicity;
  • GPS303-F with numerous inputs and outputs for fleet management;
  • GPS303-G which is similar to “F” version, but the package includes remote controller for security applications.

On the firmware side GPS303 trackers mainly follow the functionality of GPS103 models.

The goods:

  • Low price
  • Easy installation
  • Waterproof casing

The bads:

  • No A-GPS and GLONASS
  • Limited tracking modes

Coban GPS306
