If you are looking for a long distance GPS tracker that requires no monthly fees, the new Iota tracker is definitely worth more investigation, as its the smallest longest lasting GPS tracker in the world, according to its creators.
The Iota has been under development for three years and offers a 10 x battery life improvement when compared to cellular devices, and is equipped with a battery that lasts months before needing a recharge.
Iota has been created by Iotera based in Redwood City, CA, who explains a little more about their device and its unique features.
“We could all use a helper. The goal with Iota was to build an efficient, tiny, and always connected device to help you find, secure, and protect everything important. Iota helps you find your lost pet, lets you know if your bike is being tampered with, protects your house, and more. A single device that saves you time and money, while giving you peace of mind.
While Bluetooth-only trackers like Tile, Stick n’ Find, and Trackr Bravo are great for finding things at home, they are unable to locate objects and pets when they stray farther than 100 feet from a smart phone. A healthy dog can cover 100 feet pretty fast. If Iota were to use cellular networks like your cell phone, its battery would die in a few days, and there would be costly monthly fees–this wasn’t acceptable to us. Instead, we decided to build a brand new wireless technology with a free nationwide network from scratch.”
The Iota GPS tracker project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise enough pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
