Great for keeping track of escape artist

Kelsey · 6 days ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Excellent product but not a lot of support. I worked at Verizon and got the product for my moms dog so knew how to work it but there’s zero training for representatives and tech support on it. So I ended up being that rare ‘go-to’ problem solver. My main complaint with the product is the proprietary charging cable that you literally can’t buy anywhere and in store we don’t have a cable to test out of the product has a charging issue or product defect for warranty. My fix a lot of times was to sell out a new product, open up the box - test out the charging cable and see if it fixed the product - and if it did, return device and let customer keep cable because again, can’t buy charging cable ANYWHERE outside of buying a new product and sending out for warranty they’d only send a new device and not new cable. Hopping someone within Verizon who can implement change sees this comment and can fix the inability of buying new charging cable

Works ok to passively track my dog, (once an hour), and recharge daily.

I track my dog with this, had to set it down to once an hour to keep it working all day and evening. My dog is out most of the day. the app is telling me that there is a software update available for the unit, but when I try to load it, it comes back after a few minutes and says it is already running the latest version. Also, I do not see any geofencing options, only location alerts. Perhaps I am missing something. I actually prefer the gizmo watch to this unit as I get several days out of a charge, its easier to get real time tracking, plus I can literally call my dog and tell him to come home, which he will.

Fully charged you're looking at about 30 minutes run time

Renegade Trucker · 11 months ago

Doesn't stay charged long, must plugged in to modify settings, the charger magnetizes to the device and its a very weak magnet at that. Accurate? Sure is but so is everything else I just mentioned.

Terrible battery life.

Not worth the money, even when I connected it to a USB battery it drained it dry in a day.

Great tracker, fragile clips.

JDLemmon · 1 years ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Locator from Verizon works very accurately. I live in the country and have no AT&T, which all other trackers use. The big drawback is the inability to get replacement collar clips. They break and then you have no way to attach the tracker to the collar.

cark2003 · 1 years ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Ok, First battery. If you have it reporting location 24/7 along with live tracking yes battery last maybe a day. It has a warning to tell you, you have too wide a field and high battery use. I have one report time slot m-F 10am-5pm I use when I’m away from house. Turn it off when the dog is with me. Second, signal. When I first got it it was pinging all over the place Saying slayer was all over the neighborhood and out of his boundary line. I updated the unit, called tech support for unit and they fixed the problem. Was trying to connect to a old tower that wasn’t in service for the collar. Verizon reset my parameters and it’s worked great since. Third, The worse part, the mounts. I use the key-ring type Mount not the “clip” I have a pit bull and his strength snapped the clip off (broke in to two pieces) second time he shook his head. The key-ring style holds great and he hasn’t shook it off.

Overall, just no good

Tkf66 · 1 years ago

I've had several GPS trackers for vehicles and mostly more importantly for my dog. And I'll preface this with the fact that I am fairly savvy when it comes to using electronics setting them up and I do not need nor care for a consumer-friendly or customer-friendly system as I can usually navigate my way through and figure things out. but I can tell you in the week and a half or two weeks I've had this it is by far the most unclear inaccurate short battery life terrible design for holsters or attaching to devices or people or dogs etc. Surprise Verizon put this out. the geofencing part the most frustrating as in any other geofencing GPS tracker you set up a perimeter and that funeral is not to be alerted on its when they dog or item leaves that perimeter is when you receive an alert. to this day I get to really understand or figure out why I want to be alerted at a specific address or if the locator is in a certain area and secondly why would I want to set a time schedule I'd wanted 24 hours a day to be tracking unless it's charging. I want to know when my dog leaves a specific perimeter and be alert at that point not while he's inside the printer I set to be alerted every second because that's the area I know he's in a few leaves that area I want to know. Not to mention this is the several false location alerts I received. like all the GPS I do expect some to occur but when multiple occur and they also show within a reasonable distance or a distance of which is likely or possible that my animal has traveled but yeah it is actually off by 300 400 yards that poses a serious issue. Anyways between the design, the app, and the whole entire system I strongly encourage you not to purchase a system as he will be disappointed and hopefully you don't purchase it and then lose a loved one like to my dog. I'm definitely returning this item *Please no I do not take the time to spell or grammar check this review nor do I care to take the time to do so. I just thought I would use voice to text to put out there at least one war review which is truly an honest review and hopefully Verizon can fix their products to make it better and competitive

Little Dog Monitor.

K DOG · 1 years ago

Yes, I'd recommend this product.

Here's how it works people,when I'm done for the day and going to bed at night I take the collar off my dog and charge the battery. The first thing I do in the morning is put the collar on, let my dog out in the backyard. My backyard is fenced but she likes to dig under it... I have my tracker set at a 15-minute check-in interval, and I have the geofence active so if the dog should leave the area within 15 minutes I will know about it. At that point then I will take my phone out and open the tracking unit on my dog real tracking which I can make that adjustment from my phone to find my dog. It's that simple. Sure the battery will die in a hour, but by that time, I should be able to find my dog... If you can't take the collar off a dog once a day to charge it,  you shouldn't own a dog. So far for the money, I think this is the best I've seen.  it will track my dog into a general area, I don't expect it to have pinpoint accuracy like a few feet as long as it shows me where my dog is within a couple of hundred feet I'm happy. and it does.....

Works OK sometimes

RRAA · 1 years ago

Using it to keep tabs on our dog, running around our wooded 3 acre lot. The battery life is not good. If I use it for more than a few seconds of continuous tracking I will have to recharge it at least twice a day. And the continuous tracking is the only way it can actually pinpoint a location; the hourly or every-three-hour check-in pings usually only narrow location down to a circle that covers about an acre. It's often very slow to locate as well; frequently I will try to locate the dog with the app and he'll come barging in through the dog door after a minute and a half meanwhile the tracker still has no idea where he is. A nice feature is the ability to make the tracker sing a little song to help you find it, so if you can train your dog to come to you when his collar sings, it's useful for summoning the dog even if you don't know where he is.

If I leave the smart locator charging continuously will it stay powered on and track

Boston James - 7 months

Yes I have it charging continuously to a piece of heavy equipment, incase it’s power source is disconnected from the battery source, it’s own battery will be 100% charged and ready to give out its location while being recovered before a few days then it will lose its charge.

Can this be used to track a child to and from school? Like in her backpack?

VZBV - 2 years

Yes, this device is designed to do just that. Keep in mind, that if your child left their backpack at school with the locator in it, the device will only be tracking the backpack. - Nichole
