Monimoto 7 Anti-Theft GPS Tracker review

Back when I lived in Philadelphia, I rode around the city with a 15-pound Kryptonite chain slung over my shoulder like a bandolier. When I needed to park my motorcycle, I’d find a spot near a big post and shackle the rear wheel with the chain. Those were simpler days, when phones were dumb and Mark Zuckerberg was still picking his nose in grade school.

Now, like everyone, I carry a smartphone in my pocket wherever I go, allowing the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google) to track my every movement and activity. But hey, it’s a worthwhile tradeoff. I get to doomscroll or watch funny cat videos instead of having to endure a single moment of boredom ever again. LOL, j/k.

Just as the REVER app on my iPhone means I no longer need to mount a dedicated GPS on my bike, the Monimoto GPS tracking app means I can leave the Kryptonite chain at home.

Inside the box is the Monimoto 7 tracking device, which measures roughly 3.5 x 2.5 x 0.75 inches – smaller than a deck of cards and compact enough to fit under a motorcycle seat. There are also two AA lithium batteries to power the eSIM-enabled tracking device, two releasable zip ties for securing the device to the motorcycle, and a round key fob (1.6 x 0.4 inches) powered by a thin watch battery.

Installation is easy. Download the Monimoto app, follow the instructions to pair your phone with the tracking device, secure the tracking device under the seat, and attach the fob to your keychain. The app lets you know that the device is armed and ready.

If your motorcycle and the tracking device part ways with the fob and movement is detected, the Monimoto app sends an alert notification and an automated phone call that says “Alarm!” Then, the app keeps you updated and provides GPS coordinates for your motorcycle that are viewable on a map. If your motorcycle has indeed been stolen, you can share the tracking data with police. If the fob was on the motorcycle when it was stolen, you won’t receive alerts but you can start active tracking via the app.

The Monimoto 7 is easy to use and provides peace of mind. It uses the LTE-M (LTE Cat-M1) network, and currently works only in the U.S. MSRP for the Monimoto 7 is $199. It comes with an embedded eSIM card and a free 2-month subscription; after that it’s $49/year.

  1. I have an older (tube version) fitted to a bike in storage – a very easy life for the Monimoto.
    It regularly needed resetting, which is a massive faff if you found somewhere on you bike to hide it and difficult to get to. Several false alarms, drop outs and no reports when the bike was moved to test it. Needless to say I was massively disappointed when the GSM module failed after 14 months of use – just outside of the warranty, which is very convenient.

    Considering the environmental crisis we are going through, the idea of making throw away products (never mind the price) is shameful and none of us should support. This is completely unacceptable, can you imagine if your mobile phone stopped working just after a year because the GSM module failed? But you can buy a new more expensive upgraded one – no chance?

    Save your money, I suggest you buy a proper tracker or use your money to buy some real good lock hardware which will last.

  2. Update, after complaining to Monimoto direct, they have replaced my unit free of charge with the latest model. It is working well and I’ve had no issues with the new devices – I’m happy with Monimoto response and resolving the issue.
