Got the PocketTracker circuit board assembled very quickly with no issues. Had a wire pinch when I stuffed it into an Altoids tin I had. After finding that it was no problem to get it programmed and get it connected to a Garmin eTrex GPS.
As an electrical engineer with 25 years industry experience, I will say that Byon and Tony have really put together a solid system with world-class documentation.

Got hold of 2 TTIII and a PicPaC, great engineering up and running in less than 30 minutes assembly job.
Byon is unique in his class, a defective LCD display was replaced at no cost, He really stands behind his products. A must for every HAM around the Globe.

I have been extremly impressed with all the Byonics products I own or have used. Going back to the original TinyTrak and the string translator for the old Aisin GPS. I also own a Pic-Pac. The kits are professional and the manuals are great! Byon really has his thumb on the pulse of HAM radio!

I have purchased several products from Byon and have been extremely satisfied with not only the fast S/H but also the coureous reply to E-Mails and correspondence. Byon stands behind his products, something that more companies should do. I now own the Tiny Trak II and III, as well as a GST-1. Thank you.

I've had three TinyTrak kits over the years. The first was a TT2 and the others where TT3's They have never given me any trouble what so ever. Assembly is a breeze. It would would make a great project for a club. I use mine almost everyday.

I bought a tinytrak3 a few months ago. The shipping on it was one of the fastest I have seen between ebay people and various other companies. It was also very well packaged and included very excellent documentation to help me assemble it. I will say it took me a little longer to build than the time that was said but that was really my fault as I wanted to make sure I got everything perfect. It is also a great little product that does what it should. All the problems I have had with using the product are not from the product itself but from the radio/antenna I am using and my understanding of APRS. I hope to soon buy another to build into my rat shack digitraveler gps. If the other products from byonics are as good as my tinytrak then you can not go wrong. The only other thing I could say is that I am a very satisfied customer who would buy from Byonics again! Thanks for making this great kit and your other kits available. I hope you can come up with some more great kits in the future.

Great service. Purchased a TT3 and was delivered to Australia in less than a week. The TT3 was assembled in about 30min and worked first time ( and has ever since ). Very clear precise instructions. The world would be a great if all busines's ran like Byonics.

I bought my Tiny Trak III, assembled it and it required only a couple of minor adjustments. On my next one I will leave R-8 out and include it on the radio cables, then I can use any radio. My problem !!
I want one of everything Byon has for sale

I bought a Tiny Tracker III fully assembled last summer. It was the easiest item to install and the software is very easy to use. I was in a hurry to get it installed as my son, N1GAT, was getting ready to take a trip from the northeast to Texas. I was going to track his progress. A week before his trip I connect the TT3 to my laptop to program it and something happened that stopped it from working. I contacted Byon and within days he sent me out a chip. Unfortunately it turned out more than that was the problem, probably cause by my laptop, and I didn't get the project done in time, but the fact that Byon provided me such quick turnaround, knowing my goal, was very impressive. He provides GREAT customer service! I am very please with his product and run it every day in my mobile. FJM

Following my purchase and satisfaction with the PocketTracker from Byonics, I had a need for something to act as a "fox" in a Boy Scout Jamboree-on-the-Air radio hunt activity. I purchased a PicCon kit and found it to be very easy to assemble, and it worked the first time I applied power. I an VERY impressed with the flexibility & capability built into this product. It does its intended job very well. I subsequently purchased several more & I would highly recommend the PicCon for anyone looking for a solution to provide periodic morse code IDs (plus simple tunes) in a radio tracking activity. Please also see my other positive comments on the PocketTracker as well. MJC

My first Byonics purchase was a PocketTracker (for myself, from my wife) for Christmas. It wasn't the easiest kit that I've built (as the directions clearly & fairly indicated), but it turns out to be one of the best that I've ever built. It worked the first time I applied power, it was a snap to tune, & I'm VERY impressed with how well it works for putting out so little power. I would highly recommend the PocketTracker for anyone looking for a "complete APRS solution" for use in a short to medium range tracking activity. Please also see my other positive comments on the PicCon as well. MJC
