Track What's Important

How It Works

The GTU 10 is small, lightweight and waterproof. It easily attaches to a backpack, pet collar or whatever is important to you.

When you purchase a new GTU 10, it comes with 1 year of Standard Tracking (coverage dependent on GSM wireless service within the U.S.), so you'll be ready to go once you register and activate it in your Garmin account.

Then, you can view the location of your GTU 10 on a map from the friendly confines of your computer. For an added level of convenience, you can download the free Garmin Tracker app for your mobile device to compare your current location to the direction and location of your GTU 10. For the ability to automatically route to your GTU 10, you can use a Garmin nüLink! device.

Using your computer or mobile device, you can also:

  • Create up to 10 geofences (virtual boundaries) for your device. When your GTU 10 enters or exits a geofence, we can send you an email or text message notification.
  • View track history of where your GTU 10 has been.
  • Customize device settings for optimal performance, including low battery/powered off notifications to let you know when it's time to recharge or when the device has been turned off.

It is very accurate and works very well.
2 days of battery life on the '4 week' setting is ridiculous.
Niels Meersschaert
Together with the iPhone app this device works great.

I had a DogTracs unit for a year and overall I was satisfied with it, though I needed to charge it every day. In comparison the Garmin is smaller and sleeker, though it resides in a little zippered bag on the dog's harness, which adds to the bulk. Set up was easy once I used IE as opposed to Firefox which just couldn't seem to handle the Garmin download. Unlike the DogTracs, the Garmin doesn't allow for a location query from an ordinary cell phone text - you need to ask for a location from a computer or a smartphone. Once a location is requested it comes quickly and reliably, sometimes even with the unit located inside the house.

The first year of monitoring is included with no connection fee and each additional year is $50 - this is a good value compared to other devices.

After just two days of ownership my biggest disappointment is battery life. I set it up for "ON DEMAND" use only, which should provide 7 days of battery life. I have gotten 24 hours maximum for my first two days. I have an email into Garmin and will update on their response. Additionally I have noticed that a location request does not supply coordinates, just a dot on a Bing map. I lost the device briefly and coordinates would have helped me to find it more quickly.

UPDATE: A Garmin tech got back to me and indicated that if the device is on and stored where it cannot receive both GPS and cellular phone signals, it will deplete the battery rapidly as it seeks to connect. After several back and forths with Garmin, it appears that you either need to store the device where it can get a constant signal, or shut it off when inside, taking the risk of forgetting to activate it before exiting the house. Overall I think this is one of the best devices of its kind out there, but it could be improved.

After using this thing for a little while I have some useful feedback. It is more sensitive than most to being in doors. All mobile phones and 5 year gps units can get some fix inside my house, but the GTU10 wont attempt a fix with less than 5 satts. If you use the heaviest battery setting you have to recharge once a day. Its that simple. if instead of checking every 5 seconds you check every 15 minutes you can recharge every five days-- big difference.

My biggest concern is the mobile apps, both android and IOs. the both seem to take a long time to connect with the device. A device I might have just turned on, placed on the hood of my car, waited for 5 minutes the apps where still giving my last nights position. eventually after pushing refresh enough times it works but I wish I knew what was happening and why it seems to take so long to lock if it hasn't locked in a while. After all, I have the deluxe tracking option so when I download the track history I know the GPS is functioning.

this device is a breakthrough in the realtime tracking market. at 200 including the first year of unlimited location requests it's one of the cheapest. add to this it's size ( about the size of a pack of gum), its outstanding battery life and the very polished iPhone and android apps and you've got a winner.

there are a couple of things that really set this device apart from the rest.

1. it works on AT&T's network. most of the cheaper models, like zoom bak use T-Mobile because it is cheaper.
now you might be thinking AT&T always drops calls. well it does, but this runs on the data, not voice, network and it doesn't need the maintain a connection with a tower for minutes or hours- just a few seconds to fire off a location report.

I used this device to track my teen car. I did a fair amount of research before I bought it and realized a couple of things I would need to accept in order to get full use out of this device for my purposes: a) I would connect the device to the car battery using a car fuse splitter and cable that does not come with the device and b) the monthly fee had to be reasonable. I installed the device myself in the car about 5 minutes once I had the splitter and the fuse and I was able to conceal the device so that it would not be disturbed/stolen. Apparently this device does not have to have a good look at the sky to work properly because I concealed mine under the dash behind the glove box. (Charlie, if you are reading this review I will know if you mess with this device). This eliminated the battery life problem so often bemoaned in reviews of this device and others.

The monthly fee for this device (which is waived for the 1st year) is a very reasonable $5 which is paid annually. (after all it is basically a cell phone plan). If that amount is too much for you then you should hold off purchasing as I found it the cheapest anywhere. This basic plan gives you the ability to see tracking points (breadcrumbs) which are dropped (it seems) whenever the device feels like it. If you buy upgraded tracking, the device will drop breadcrumbs very reliably and predictably as often as every 15 seconds. I tried out extended tracking for 1 month for $5 and it is much better, but I don't think I need it.

The website works fine, Tip: you have to learn how to use the time filters otherwise what you'll see is a map of tracking points of everyplace the car has been in the last week or so. This can be too much information. Set the filters to see the last 8 hours or so.
