March 7, 2006 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 System (GPS) and wireless technology to give you peace of mind with pet location updates every 2 seconds. 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. 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. 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.
