The Scytek Mobile is an accessory that uses the Galaxy 5000/5100 brain. It simply uses the Scynet port to become mobile. Here are some things to note:

- The "newer" Skytrak modules do NOT have a GPS antenna. Despite what the manual says, it does not. The cell antenna works for GPS and cellular transmission.

- The mobile website works great on iphone 4/4S. It is terrible on iPhone 5; albeit still usable.

- I had to call Scytek to get the mobile portion setup. When I tried to set it up online, it errored saying "Serial Number Already In Use." I'm not sure if Sonic activates them ahead of time forcing customers to call in and getting the year free that way or what. I hope that my unit wasn't a return that somebody already set up.

- Once installed, setup, and working, the response time is very fast. The desktop website is quite thorough. It tracks very well and is quick while tracking. You can tell the people creating this website were not strong at English. But, it works.

At the end of the day, I can start the car, lock it, check the status, ect from my iPhone 5. It also receives texts when the warn away or car alarm is triggered. So, you essentially have 2 way unlimited distance confirmation. I really like the device and would purchase again.
