    My son just got me one today for Father’s Day. I don’t think it’s been in stores very long so wasn’t sure if anyone had any experience with it yet? I have two spypoint cameras, one has been great one hasn’t been and I don’t typically see too many positive reviews on that brand so I’ve got my fingers crossed that this works well!

    I have last years, it’s fine for a cheaper cell cam. I don’t like the small SD card.

    I think you are thinking of one of their camera models. The cell link is a device that hooks up to any brand trail cam and turns it into a cellular camera. Pretty cool concept, if it’s reliable.

    No I don’t think so. This is a device that hooks up to any existing trail cam you have that’s not cellular and makes it cellular. As I mentioned below, in concept it seems like an awesome idea on spypoints behalf. Now like anything it will depend on how reliable it is. I’ll be hooking it up 4th of July weekend so should have some feedback on it by late July

    Ours was working fine for about a week and a half but then it went dead. Not sure if the camera (a browning, not sure what model) went dead or if the cell link did. However I accidentally put lithium batteries in both that were not brand new, they had been in a camera for awhile last fall so I can’t fairly say how long this new product will last on a new set of batts. Unfortunately I live 5 hours from where it’s at and won’t be back to replace the batteries for a few weeks yet. Will update at a later date when I’ve had a better chance to give it a fair review.

    Just a follow up update. Must’ve been bad batteries we had put in it originally because we replaced with brand new lithium’s and this system has actually been working really well. For $60 or whatever it’s a pretty good value imo. The pictures it sends to your phone are not great quality but definitely good enough. We’ve found that it helps to set it up in a spot where the animal will be fairly close to the camera. Field edges for example aren’t great. Scrapes...perfect. I had around 9-10 browning cams (variety of their models) and that what we hooked this up to.
