    Peace of mind

    By Jackel10 on May 4, 2020

    We got 2 findsters, one for cat and one for horse. It tracks well and we are in a mountainous rural area. I can let my horses out and know where they are and if the cat strays outside the virtual perimeter fence I get an alarm on my cell phone. Easy to use. Just wish the batteries lasted longer.

    Unreliable and short battery life

    By LuaM on Aug 4, 2020

    I got this product because my cat would get out in a coyote infested area. I was interested in creating a virtual fence so I would know when she got out. It is called findster so I figured it would help track where my pet was. After ordering one from the findster site almost two months ago (which I have I got this product because my cat would get out in a coyote infested area. I was interested in creating a virtual fence so I would know when she got out. It is called findster so I figured it would help track where my pet was. After ordering one from the findster site almost two months ago (which I have still not received) I ordered one from chewy. We put it on yesterday and while my cat and I laid on my bed it was sending me alerts that she was all over the place at least a hundred feet away. The battery died after less than 24 hours after being fully charged. I will be seeing how to return this item. … 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. Do recommend for off-leash walks or general activity tracker 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.

PROS: - affordable (no monthly fee) - great for intermittent use or only for activity tracking - great for those talking their dogs on off-leash excursions CONS: - short battery life when tracking - not possible to beginning tracking dog unless they're next to you - issues ending walks if the dog isn't near you - attachment came off one of the dogs and the battery died so I lost one of the dog modules … more

    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.

    Cat tracker

    By on

    The item works, if don't want the monthly fee, to me its a little to big for cats. But it works great.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    The Best Pet GPS ever!

    By on

    We've had our Findster Duo for over a year and we love it! It's reliable and has never let us down. Updates the position fast so you always know where your pet is and it has a long range. Love the not having a monthly fee. Worth every penny!!! We love our Finster!

    Lives up to the hype

    By on

    After a few past experiences with the competition, I heard about this product and decided to give it a try. I was somewhat bracing for disappointment but was pleasantly surprised! I'm glad to report that Findster delivers on every aspect, it's a well thought out device that finally brought me peace of mind

    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
