At 15 cents a day the current 365 day Long Expiry Prepaid  (select the right tab) would seem the best value.

Re: Best pre paid plan for gps tracker

I tried a long expiry plan in a GPS tracker and it would not work.

I ended up using a pre-paid ultimate plan. Expensive but it worked.

 

No idea how to tell which pre-paid SIM plan will and won't work.

 

The frustration I have is the inability to get SIM card account balances to track usage.

Not sure what would be the technical difference?

Like I said, I can't say why but when I discussed it with the GPS tracker supplier, they reported the same problem happened with quite a few people. For some reason the long term plans would not work in these particular trackers. As soon as I got Optus to switch the plan over, it worked just fine.

 

YMMV

For the car GPS tracker, is it just mobile data that you need on the SIM? Prepaid Mobile Broadband might be a better option > $80 for 14GB - 186 days.
