March 7, 2006 The GlobalPetFinder device uses the Global Positioning System (GPS) and wireless technology to give you peace of mind with pet location updates every 2 seconds. It can be used wherever phone service is available and also has an advanced module that minimizes 'canopy effect', allowing it to be used even in heavily wooded areas. If for some reason the device is temporarily unable to get a satellite 'lock,' it will continue to search until it does, and you will know where your pet was last.

Remember the Disney movies where the much loved family pet is left behind whilst on holiday and has to endure a cross country journey to find their way home?

The GlobalPetFinder device uses the Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and wireless technology to give you peace of mind with pet location updates every 2 seconds.

It can be used wherever phone service is available and also has an advanced module that minimizes 'canopy effect', allowing it to be used even in heavily wooded areas. If for some reason the device is temporarily unable to get a satellite 'lock,' it will continue to search until it does, and you will know where your pet was last.

You can choose to have the location information sent to your mobile phone, pager, PDA or computer in text or map form, or sent to more than one person. You can set multiple boundaries from zero to hundreds of acres for your pet, which can be easily changed to suit your needs via the internet or the device itself and are password protected.

GlobalPetFinder will fit onto ANY standard collar, harness or halter, and is absolutely harmless to the pet. GlobalPetFinder is protected by a sleek, hermetically sealed, water-resistant, extremely durable case. The device operates on a rechargeable lithium ion battery similar to those used in a cell phone and is programmed to alert you when it is time to recharge. GPS satellite monitoring technology can be extended to track children or adults in crowded urban environments, and the Global PetFinder team have a number of patents applicable to human interaction awaiting release.

The 7-ounce programmable receiver/transmitter based on the same basic pet collar technology can be hidden in a child's clothing (such as a hat or belt) or worn as a watch for hassle free use.

So whether your loved ones have two legs or four, they will always be protected and you can rest assured you know where they are at all times.
