The Globalpetfinder is designed to fit securely and comfortably.
Define a virtual "fence" for your pet via the globalpetfinder.com Web site.
Your pet's location is automatically transmitted to your wireless device.
The device is simple to operate. View larger.
The other key component of the system is the globalpetfinder.com Web site. Here, Global Pet Finder members can build a virtual fence of any size by logging in and defining the fence parameters. The command center will prompt you to enter a name, address and size for your fence. Your fence is then automatically downloaded to the memory of your Global Pet Finder and your pet can then freely roam inside this virtual boundary. Up to five fence locations can be stored at once.
If your pet wanders outside the boundary you have defined, you'll be alerted immediately and sent a continuous update on the location of your pet. Location information is sent to the device of your choice -- a cell phone, a PDA, or a computer -- via SMS or email. Meanwhile, if the Global Pet Finder device is placed in "walk mode" you can walk and travel with your pet outside of the virtual fence. Should you and your pet become separated, though, tracking may be initialized remotely simply by dialing F-O-U-N-D from your cell phone. Likewise, you can check your pet's location at any time by dialing this code. The Global Pet Finder will then transmit your pet's position.
In addition to tracking your pet, the Global Pet Finder will alert you via cell phone when its batteries begin to run low. Plus, the unit monitors the environmental temperature for your pet. You'll will be alerted if temperature conditions become dangerously hot or cold. Global Pet Finder is non-invasive, it requires no installation or surgical implantation, and it does not use electric shock of any kind. Simply put, it's safe and causes no harm to your pet.
The Global Pet Finder requires a one-time activation fee of $34.99 and a monthly service plan. The service plan includes three locates per month (a locate is defined as an out-of-fence violation lasting more than five minutes. It begins when you receive an out-of-fence alert and ends when you pet returns to the "in-fence" mode). The service requires that you have cell phone coverage in your area. See the coverage map to determine if you have coverage. Consult the globalpetfinder.com Web site for service plan details and charges.
What's in the Box

1. GPS transmitter is NOT waterproof. The grey plastic case has a 2 inch long gap that would easily allow water to get inside it and destroy the electronics. Even overnight condensation could damage the unit.
2. GPS transmitter easily falls out of the cheap black plastic case that attaches to your dogs' collar. You could find the transmitter (assuming no exposure to moisture), but not your beloved dog, who could be long gone.
3. Antenna was shipped quite loose.
Company was unresponsive when I notified them of these problems. I even offered remedies/inexpensive fixes they could have used, which they did not.
Wait until another company comes up with a quality GPS locator for your dog, then buy it.
DON'T BUY. COMPANY WENT OUT OF BUSINESS 31 AUGUST 2008.
We purchased this item less than a year ago. The batteries have never held a charge more than 24 hours in walk mode, vice the 4-5 days as advertised. The companies website states that a text message will be sent when the batteries are low. This has never happened. We have received erroneous messages on heat conditions saying high heat when it was 45 degrees outside. When a track was sent via the website it took over 45 minutes to receive a text message or for the website to give our pets location. The home location changes and when the correct address is entered in, it shows the home location at about a block away. Customer service is nonexistent. After numerous phone calls (never got a person, only a voice mail) and emailing them they did not feel their customers were important enough to return the calls or emails. We now sit here with a device that is locked in fence mode and won't change on the device or the website and is not receiving a signal. For the same price there are much better products coming out on the market and some don't have service fees. As soon as they are available, we are getting one.
