SafeTag Plug 4G

Today I’ll be writing a review for the SafeTag Plug 4G. I have previously reviewed the SafeTag Plug 2G. This new, updated model features a 4G connection, which improves connectivity.

Much of this review will refer back to the 2G review, much of the product is the same, aside from an improved connection. Absolutely no point in saying the same thing twice.

Good news for previous SafeTag users is the monthly subscription is the same, if you’re upgrading simply deactivate your previous SafeTag product and add this.

So, is the 4G any better? Time to test it out!

Packaging and Contents.

The SafeTag Plug comes packaged in a cardboard box, which shows product images and specifications printed on it. The box measures 9.0cm x 9.0cm x 4.7cm and weighs 90G.

SafeTag Plug 4G.

The SafeTag Plug measures 49.2mm x 33.6mm x 38.8mm (When plugged into a OBD-2 port, the SafeTag Plug 4G protrudes 24.0mm) and weighs 35.6G. SafeTag preinstall a IoT M2M SIM Card into each tracker, the tracker uses mobile 4G Network Connectivity for vehicle protection. If there’s a mobile phone signal, then the SafeTag Plug 4G will provide 30 second interval updates, in periods of signal loss the tracker keeps the data and transfers to the app when signal quality has improved.

Installation of the SafeTag Plug 4G into your vehicle is easy. Firstly, you’ll need to locate your vehicle’s OBD-2 port, check your vehicle’s user guide or a quick Google search to locate this, you’ll usually find it located behind a plastic cover somewhere.

Here’s where something notably different between the 2G and 4G become apparent. The protrusion of the 2G was 18.8mm, whereas the 4G protrudes 24.0mm. This meant the 4G just fit to my Vauxhall Meriva, literally just. The OBD-2 cover presses against the tracker, luckily not too much stress, but enough to not get a perfect, flush finish.

I’m gonna link the account setting up process, plans, app from the 2G review as they’re precisely the same.

Conclusion.

I’m very impressed with the SafeTag Plug 4G. It’s certainly an improvement in comparison to the 2G, the network is more stable, which is brilliant, the only downside is the bulkier design, this means it’s perfectly hidden away in my car. Thankfully, I can cover it (just) but those with other model vehicles may find this an issue too.

I still 100% recommend SafeTag products, they’re brilliant, very affordable and backed up with excellent customer service too.
