Great for monitoring, useless for tracking in the city.

Great for the open land does not work well in the city.
If you have many buildings or uneven landscapes like hills or rocks or valleys around you it won't work as the signals bounce off the objects and confuse the tracker. It shows my dog in the exact opposite direction of where he actually is because of this problem. Only when I head out into the open spaces does it correctly show the direction.
So for tracking a dog in the city it's pretty useless.
However to monitor a dog it's AWESOME. It has a feature to alert you if a dog goes too far away from the house/tracker. Are use this feature a lot. I have set it to the near setting so if my dog is more than 50 m away from my house it alerts me and I can go and call him back before you get out of ear shot. This to me is an even better feature than tracking the dog because I can get the dog before he runs away. For this one feature I give it five stars, for tracking dog it's run away I give it one star in the city.
