Argent Data Tracker 4 (APRS)

A while back I recommended the Argent Data Sytems Tracker 4 for a mobile APRS solution. This has worked well until this weekend when its WiFi stopped. I brought it in today and did a firmware update. That’s fixed it good and proper - in that it no longer works at all. This appears to be a common problem (judging by their support forum - where little support is in evidence). All in all I can’t recommend it as a solution at the moment. Very annoying.

Hi Richard

Does your MiFi, have ethernet connectivity on it??

If so, these are an excellent product! WX3in1 Mini - APRS Advanced Digipeater/I-Gate | Microsat APRS


I confirm: after having waited several months after payment to get it and spent many hours trying to figure out what I was doing wrong, the conclusion is that all available versions of firmware have serious problems (GPS not working with one, Wi-Fi with another.)

This has become my most expensive paperweight.

I have one of those too - so yes I know that’s good! However the MiFi does not have ethernet.

That is a shame

One way around it could be one of these Vonets Wifi Adaptor

The developer has finally posted an update on the forum (not new firmware just an update on his business issues). Very late but at least he’s still about. I have asked him to post the last version of the firmware that mostly worked (v161). Let’s see.

Oh dear!

I was going to get in contact because I was looking to get a few of them. Firmware issues aside, can you send commands to
It over the air (aprs messages) to change config like you could with the tracker 2?

I can’t answer that. Maybe try on the forum? The developer has now reappeared and there is new firmware. I have not tried it out yet.

Wade, as mentioned, Argent have their own Forum plus have you had a read of the manual?
I have a T4 and would be happy to chat off line about its performance,

Will do - read the manual yes
