    Display not clear or precise enough

    By on

    The following are things I didn't like about this. 1) You must start the walk before tracking can begin. 2) Tracking does not update quickly enough to track a fast moving dog in real time. 3) Battery dies very quickly, even when not in use. Must recharge before every outting. 4) Tracking is not clear. If the dog is in the woods on or near a trail, the trail is not shown. Instead, all you see are trees. While you have the rough direction of your dog, figuring out how to get there is challenging. 5) Clunky. It bulges out off the side of the collar and can get caught and pulled off. We actually lost one of the bases this way while not tracking. 6) Not use friendly programming.

    Has Some Fixable Problems

    By on

    I live in an area that has spotty-to-no cellular coverage, so the Findster Duo+ seemed perfect. After using it for a couple of weeks, I like but do not love it. Here's why: The Good - It works pretty well in a mountainous, forested environment. Range is not an issue. Accuracy is good enough, about what I expected from GPS in a less-than-ideal environment. - The "your order has shipped" email was really cute. Big companies have lawyers that stomp out all such fun. The Bad: - They force you to draw a virtual fence with the map zoomed out, so you can't draw it accurately? Why? Because GPS isn't accurate. So you end up with two sources of inaccuracy instead of one. It's like saying I live in an area that has spotty-to-no cellular coverage, so the Findster Duo+ seemed perfect.

So you end up with two sources of inaccuracy instead of one. It's like saying "this gun isn't accurate, so we'll only let you use an inaccurate sight". - The product is only "indicated" (recommended) for walks. Yet they have the virtual fence feature, which clearly isn't for walks. I think pet monitoring, with the aid of a virtual fence, is something a lot of people would want. - The units recharge through magnetic connectors that would be super cool if they worked well. Unfortunately, they don't. I usually have to fiddle with them a little or a lot to get the units to charge, even after cleaning the connectors with alcohol, per instructions. - They're trying to be FitBit for pets. My phone is constantly giving notifications that my dog earned this badge or that badge. There's nothing in the instructions about how to turn these silly notifications off. - You literally cannot end a "walk" (tracking mode) without having both units close to your phone. So every time my wife drives off with my dog riding shotgun, I can't end the "walk" until he gets back. Annoying. - Actual battery life when tracking is less than 12 hours. As the batteries age, it will be even less. There's a place with the Findster app to send feedback, so I sent some of the above observations as suggested improvements. The response? "Please do not send us multiple messages..." Obviously, the company wasn't too receptive to my ideas. Bottom line, the hardware works well, and it's a really good solution when you can't or don't want to use cellular-based tracking. All of the issues I have could be fixed with updated software, IF the company is listening. … more

    Not great for every day use

    By on

    I got this because my dog had run away and was gone for two hours so I was worried about her getting hit by a car. I live in a suburban neighborhood so I wanted to use it daily, for when the dogs are in the yard or hanging out off-leash. Unfortunately there's some connectivity issues and tracking can only be started/stopped when the modules are close to you. If I forgot to end tracking, it would drain the battery really quickly. If you're diligent about starting tracking and ending and charging the battery, then it could definitely work for daily use. Do not recommend for country dogs or if you're worried about your dog running away.

    Purchased Findster for cat who goes out occasionally

    By on

    This is the first tracker we’ve purchased for our cat who likes to wander in the woods. After a few weeks use, we’ve found Gps to be sufficient in tracking his movements and finding him when we want him inside. I would recommend it. Be aware it runs on Bluetooth so it does drain your cell phone battery. It would be nice if it pinged or made some sound when nearing location of pet.

    Great GPS for my dog

    By on

    Love this GPS. Except, a little slow update tracking. So, I thought my dog in my yard but actually she was out... but still pretty good. I could easy to figure out she went to behind if my house or front of my house. I have 4.5 acres and this GPS telks me which direction she run to. Wish this GPS have talking mode or alarm mode then my dog went out safty zone, buzz or make sound on her device. I get buzz my phone tho...

    Excellent product for peace of mind

    By on

    We live in a sparsely populated area and have a young male rescue dog that chases any wildlife in the area. I have tried the electric fence with the collar that terrified him. He's an inside dog now and he paced the backyard fence we thought might solve the problem. He loves to run and it was frustrating. We worried he would stray too far and not be able to find his way home. This is such a great solution because we can see exactly where he is. If he doesn't respond to a whistle and continues to move further away we can immediately walk toward his location. He had begun to realize ignoring the call doesn't work anymore and turns toward home. We have peace of mind and he can run free again.

    Not Reliable

    By on

    I purchased this in the event my dog got lost again (she was lost for 20 hrs tangled in brush 1/4 mile from the house). She rarely barks. I live on 280 acres, mostly lightly wooded. For the last two weeks have been testing this product by walking my dog on leash. Works good, tracking movements as long as I am in the open field. As soon as I walk on a well maintained, tractor wide trail, I lose connection and do not pick up the connection again until I am in a totally open sky. Depending on the direction I walk, I lose connection within 20-30 ft of house.

    What you NEED it to do.

    By on

    I have tested this thing in distance up to 210 yards as my boy wonders the property. I have also hiked in dense trees in the mountains. This has been spot on. At one point I was disappointed for about 10 seconds until I saw my dog poke his head up 200 yards away right where the map was showing him. I used to use whistle until they required wifi. This is far better then whistle. It updates pretty much all the time. I have recalled him and have watched him move on the map. This is fantastic because when he gets too close to neighbors I can recall him to just back up...which yes oddly he knows that command. I can watch him move back into the "fenced area" and he is good to go. I was so I have tested this thing in distance up to 210 yards as my boy wonders the property.

This has been amazing. I gave 4 stars only because the charge time and charger and it does hiccup when it connects. I have to charge each night... the charger is .. weird and loose fitting so I have a dedicated space for it... I have no idea what the guardian is for, BUT THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT thing is the accuracy of my boys location. I have NOT been disappointed. Multiple "fences" that you can outline your self.. not just a circle on a map. It is a really great product. Very impressed... and I'll take the location accuracy over the other things any day! … more
