    I recently found a small GPS tracker that works via GSM and text messaging to control and get location updates. Now I have Border Terrier that I dont want to loose but can't justify a full blown GPS tracking collar solution. So for 20 and a pay as you go SIM has me a very small tracker that I can attach to his collar or harness. I can then send it an sms text and within seconds it sends me back a text with lat lon coordinates and a link to google maps to pinpoint him on a map. I also found a mapping / tracking software that I have loaded onto my phone and automatically reads the text and puts his position on a map.

    Only works with GSM coverage but if lost your dog is more than likely return to some coverage and the tracker report back. The tracker is about the size of a box of matches and from my tests so far is very accurate.
    May be of interest to others looking for a simple cost effective tracker solution.

    Yup That's the one. Only go for the TK102 as some cheaper ones don't work and again get it from a uk supplier not China.
    They have many other uses and features but just playing with the basic positioning at the moment.

    Hello Cris.

    Greath post, thank you. Please can you advise the name of the tracking / mapping software you found aswell, as I cannot seem to find anything on the App store, so if internet based need to be a bit more specific ??

    Many thanks for the great find.

    All the best.

    Neil.
