A tracker is a great idea but look for a 4g one as the 3g network is apparently being shut down soon.

Here's a couple of pages out of the instruction manual
------------------------------------------------------------>

The CCA 4G Vehicle Tracker operates on the 850, 900 and 2100 MHz networks, B1/B3/B5/B7/B8/B20 4G LTE frequency. It covers all of the current Australian Telco companies. Please remember, this unit operates just like a mobile phone. The reception of the CCA 4G Vehicle Tracker is only as good as its installed location and the coverage of the service provider. Please consider the service provider when purchasing your SIM card. It is usually more cost efficient to use a pre-paid rather than post-paid SIM, however that decision is yours.
Once your SIM is purchased, you will need to activate your SIM.
DO NOT INSTALL THE SIM CARD BEFORE THE DEVICE IS COMPLETELY INSTALLED.
Instructions on how to activate will be provided with the SIM. Once activated, credit will need to be purchased for your SIM to SMS the receiver, (you) and keep track of your property. Activation of your new SIM is usually best performed via the service provider’s website. Credit can be purchased with credit card over the internet, and with most carriers, automatic top up can be activated. We do not recommend or advise which carrier is better than others, as this is something that you will need to research the best options for your circumstances. Remember that each time the tracker sends an SMS, it uses your credit. Keep in mind that some carriers provide free SMS to same brand SIM's. The credit will expire whether used or not, so be sure to research credit life expectancy. Some expire after 28 days, others 365 days etc.
DATA. THIS DEVICE WILL USE DATA.
The CCA 4G Vehicle Tracker is capable of platform monitoring. Platform monitoring is mostly used by our commercial or fleet customers that want to monitor a multitude of vehicles online. This involves the use of a third party monitoring company. Monthly fees, subscriptions etc are usually charged.
The CCA 4G Vehicle Tracker is programmed to transmit data at predetermined intervals to the monitoring company’s website.
The amount of data sent is tiny. Almost all Australian Telco providers do not charge for this amount as it is so small. However, Australia’s largest Telco provider will charge you a fortune. Their data cost will consume your available credit in no time.
Most other providers do not have data available with their pre-paid SIM plans, you have to actually purchase a ‘Data Pack’ for the month. If you do not purchase it, you do not receive it, therefore not charged.
Simply calling your provider and asking them to deactivate data from your Pre-paid SIM is the best option. It only takes a few minutes.
Getting Started.
The GPS Tracker is fitted with its own battery, which will power the unit for up to 12 hours if the main power supply is cut. It does however need to be charged, so if in the event of a host battery (the battery of the vehicle the unit is installed in) being disconnected, stolen, running flat etc, the unit will operate on its own power supply to assist in recovery. If the unit is fitted to a vehicle, machinery, motorcycle etc, this battery charging switch is your ignition key. Every time the ignition is switched on, the battery in the tracking unit is charging.
This charging circuit also controls the Towed Alert. Should the vehicle be towed by a trailer, tow truck or even just flat towed away, the minute it moves without power being supplied to this circuit, you will receive an SMS informing you that your vehicle is being towed.
When fitted to a caravan, camper, builder’s trailer etc, a charging circuit is still required.
We recommend the caravan “Aux” circuit. This is simply a 12v supply to PIN 2 on a 7 pin trailer plug or PIN 9 on a 12 pin trailer plug. This circuit is required before towing the trailer. If this supply is not provided, the device will alert you that it is towed by an unauthorised vehicle. Almost all stolen trailers are towed away with stolen cars. It is very unlikely that the stolen tow car will have this feature. It is also unlikely that the trailer plug will even be connected.
Towed Alert bypass switch.
For those with trailers towed by multiple vehicles, or those who just don’t want to install an aux circuit to their vehicle, a bypass switch is required. A simple toggle or rocker switch is ideal. This is to be connected to a power source, (trailers host battery) and switched on manually, before moving the trailer. Be sure to switch off when the trailer is parked. If not, the Towed Alert is bypassed and will not send the alert SMS if stolen. (The GEO-Fence will still operate as per normal if Towed Alert is bypassed.)
Location.
The CCA 4G Vehicle Tracker is not waterproof, will not operate in temperatures above 85 degrees.
The supplied 4G and GPS aerials are IP67 rated. It is recommended to mount both of these aerials outside of the vehicle/trailer. Do not mount the device itself outside of the vehicle.
The GPS aerial requires a line of sight to the satellites which control the worlds GPS networks. It will operate under the bonnet of a vehicle, but keep away from excessive heat. Keep well away from exhausts and radiators. It can work from inside of the boot of a vehicle, under the canopy of a utility, within a caravan or camper, however the less restriction it has from a satellite signal, the better the unit will operate. Keep this in mind when mounting. The GPS aerial is small. It is very inconspicuous on the chassis rails of a trailer, on a solar panel mounted on the roof of a caravan, behind the grill of a 4x4 etc.
Don’t hide it too well. You want the best connectivity with satellites as possible.
Remember that this unit is intended for the assistance in recovering your vehicle/trailer etc, in the event it is stolen. Most thieves are not willing to spend 20 minutes looking for a GPS tracking device before they steal your property. They will hook it up, hot wire it or simply tow it away.
Keep the install simple.
Double sided Velcro tape is supplied for mounting the device. The GPS aerial is magnetic based and the 3G aerial is supplied with 3M tape.
Do not over tighten the aerial fixing nuts. They only require minimal tension to hold. Please be gentle!
The GPS aerial will receive a better signal with the magnetic base faced down.

They have probably updated it by now but in your link (from 2016) it says 3G

Go the SMS not data route as once you connect them to the internet they will phone home/open backdoor. I have found backdoor passwords before in stuff I have bought. SMS transfers are harder to hide. Dodo and amaysim for 11 or 12c per sms pay as you go or the 5 free family and friends phone list thing optus used to do might still be out there with someone.

I think this is some more details on the one above. https://navlib-tek.c...
