Project seeks $80,000
A new GPS tracking product has turned up on crowd sourced funding site Indiegogo. The project is seeking $80,000 with 30 days to go and has so far raised a little over $10,000. The project is for a self-charging GPS tracking and retrieving device that can be placed on cars, trucks, boats, bags, and even other people.
The device is about the size of a quarter and about as thick as four quarters stacked together. It's designed to interface with Android devices, iPhone, and other web applications allowing users to track just about anything from anywhere they can get with connection. The Retrievor is 1.10-inch in diameter and 0.39-inches thick.
The device uses a SiRFstarIV GPS processor for accurate tracking. Coverage for the device will cost $1.79 monthly with the entire first year cards upfront. A pledge of $169 or more will get you one of the first devices manufactured.
