LAS VEGAS–No need go into freak-out mode next time your favorite animal goes astray. Tracker Technologies is offering a handy locator solution with its MSP340 pet tracker.
We’ve seen other trackers before, such as Tagg, but this collar-based tracker, also known as the tbpt Tracker, works with an Android app that the company is showing off at CES 2013.
You attach the waterproof GPS/GSM collar to your pooch, and then forget about it.
If Rover bolts from the yard, activate the free app to figure out where he is.
Using the map function on the app, you can designate an area as a Geo-Fence, and receive an automatic SMS alert if your dog leaves it.
The device also features real-time tracking, so you can watch where he goes, a history function that logs doggie wanderings, and a low-power alarm.
