Describe your product in 3 words.
Pet GPS Tracker
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
A few years ago Sebastian Langton went through the devastating loss of his very best friend, Rango. He was known as “the coolest cat on the planet” and was Seb’s companion through many adventures. After going through the pain of losing Rango, Seb was determined to find a way to prevent other pet owners from going through the same feeling of pain. The idea for Pod was born: a vision to develop the best pet tracker in the world.
What makes your product special?
The Pod Tracker is everything a pet owner could want. It works around the globe, it’s the smallest and lightest in the world, and most importantly the founder/CEO has the customer’s best interests at heart from personal experience! Pod Trackers also offers personalised customer support and service, and offers both an upgrade and replacement program. It’s hard to find a company that genuinely cares about the customer as much as this one does.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
We love the warm fuzzy feeling we get every time we hear a success story of how our little product has saved someone’s family member, best friend and companion from tragedy. Not all products and companies get to do good while building a business. We’ve also had the opportunity to work with local rescues and pet organisations to truly understand how we can do bigger things to help pets locally and all over the world with the will and power of this company.

I left the Pod on my personal dog for 6 months. I have several dogs in the house and they play rough, but the Pod survived everything they threw at it. In fact, it had a serious bite-mark in its shell, but still remained sealed, waterproof and working.
It's definitely waterproof. My dog has gone swimming in the ocean numerous times with Pod, and it continues to work perfectly. Sand and salt? No problem!
The dual battery system is really the most impressive feature of the Pod. Whereas most pet GPS's require you to periodically remove the dog's collar, remove the GPS, charge it overnight and then return it to the pet's neck, Pod comes with two batteries and a tiny USB charger. Whenever the Pod app tells you that the battery is low, you switch the empty battery from the Pod with the full one from the charger. This prevents the serious issue of forgetting to put the GPS back on the pet after charging.
29 grams, the size of a wine cork... my cats don't mind it at all.
In conclusion, as the founder and manager of the Israeli Center for Lost and Stolen Pets I can honestly say that this is the first ever pet GPS that actually has lived up to the hype.
I was not given a Pod for free, but rather purchased mine.
After only a few months of use the bracket that holds the battery broke. Let me say this again: the bracket that is meant to hold the battery of the electronic device that's meant to help me locate my pet in an emergency broke. In other words, this device can't and won't provide peace of mind. I don't think this is material fatigue but a fundamental design flaw! If the break happens when your pet is out and about or in danger the device suddenly becomes a worthless piece of plastic hanging around their neck. It's better not to have it. (See picture)
This is a brief update on my experience with Pod Tracker. I first used Pod Tracker earlier this year and for my cat and his hiding places it was less than ideal. PodTracker as a company made every effort to help me out. Today I received the update of their latest Beta Software. It makes me feel proud that I gave as much feedback as I did to them (I'm sure they might use other words than "proud" when reminiscing on the long email exchanges I put them through) and now to see the outcome and the beautiful new software they've delivered. Seeing this much progress in such a short time puts this company above and beyond their competition. Where before I had some reservations about recommending them I now give them a whole-hearted thumbs up!
I have a large (20#) cat who will not convert to indoor only. Can't blame him. We recently moved and I wanted to be sure that he was not going to wander off and do something dangerous, so I researched a bunch of trackers. Pod 2 was a little expensive out the door, but included tracking for a year and was not overly huge, so we gave it a try.
Initially, it worked quite well. Then it seemed like every other software update would hose some feature that I had come to rely on. For instance, it used to be that the pod worked great to pinpoint my cat's location even while he was on our wifi network. Now, (for the past month+), if the tracker is on our home wifi, it just shows him in the house. We have a strong network and it does me little good to know that he "might" be in the house, or he "might" be halfway down the steep bluff behind our house, or he "might" be halfway down the driveway!
I think the final straw was when he came home limping severely last month. I quickly synced his Adventure (we record one every day to see what he is up to) and it came up blank. I reached out to tech support (who are always responsive, regardless or whether or not they can help. One star is just for them) and was told that I needed to perform a locate once I start recording in order to make sure that the GPS is tracking appropriately. OK, that is fine, but it's interesting that in a year of use, this has never been mentioned as something that I needed to do. So I don't know where the injury happened, which is kind of a big deal.
OTOH, We used this to locate him the other day when he was out late, and it was able to accurately find him to within a few feet. So it has paid for itself.
Unfortunately this current version absolutely chews through battery. A charge that used to last a full 12 + hours while recording an Adventure now is at 30% after a mere 5 hours. I understand that battery life is going to deteriorate over time, but this has happened over the past month, not gradually over the past year. And both batteries show the same behavior.
Short story long, I really don't want to be the beta tester for this. I want to find my cat reliably when I need to. In the past year, some competitors have come out with upgraded versions of their trackers. I will be taking a hard look at them to see if a better option is available.
