Do you want to know where your animal roams during the day? Whether your child really is at school? These are a few of the options that the Garmin GTU 10 provides you with.
Garmin has announced that they have "entered a new market" with their Garmin GTU 10 GPS tracer that can follow a personal GPS. This is a small GPS box which comes with a belt clip. Compact in size (20 x 7.5 x 3.3 cm) and light (less than 50 g) it can be slide into a pocket or attached anywhere.
This device can be easily attached to your dogs collar, placed in your child school bag or attached to anything else that you would like to follow (a bike or boat, for example). You can then see where your dog goes during the day or see if your children are home from school by simply connecting to the Garmin Tracker website accessible from any Web browser (PC, Smartphone, tablet, Garmin nüLink system).
Big Brother is tracking you The system has been launched in the United States with the GTU 10 transmitting positioning information via AT&T’s mobile network thanks to the onboard cellular modem. It is also possible to create "geoborders" which will send an alert via email or SMS if crossed.
The system uses very little energy, allowing for up to 1 month battery life, with a notification alert being sent when the battery needs recharging. The Garmin GTU 10 can therefore allow you to follow a GPS system whenever you want, without posing any questions about respecting private life.
The Garmin GTU 10 retails for $199.99 (including service activation, with 10 positions provided daily), with an ongoing annual fee of $49.99. It is possible to get more detailed information for an additional $4.99 per month.
