Ratings and Reviews
Sort of works
I’ve been using this tracker for well over a year and while it has some good features, you just can’t rely on it. Which is kind of the whole point of the device. Good things are the activity monitor which seems pretty accurate, it helps me know if my dog has had enough running time/walking time and it’s very helpful. The issues are two-fold. One, the battery. Goes flat pretty quickly, and degrades quickly as well. I reckon one year on I’m getting around 40-50% of the charge it put out when it was new. The second-big-issue is connectivity. For something a crucial as finding your dog, it’s just not up to scratch. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t. When it works it’s brilliant, but, when I have actually needed it (one time my dog went off after a deer!) it just hasn’t worked. The thing that’s supposed to give you peace of mind that you’ll always find your dog become a cause of stress. Will it work, won’t it. So reluctantly, because I like the company and think the could have a really nice product, I have to give it two stars because the bottom line is, more often than not, it won’t find your dog.
Not fit for purpose
I’ve had this for just over 12 months now. I had problems from the outset, the adventure tracking doesn’t work. I kept getting blank ones, Support told me it was due to clouds..... I politely pointed out I didn’t live in Australia I lived in the UK. The adventure failing is now on their bug list and help/troubleshooting page but still isn’t functional 100% of the time. Just before Xmas ‘18 the pod stopped tracking and just displayed a red light. Support told me it was an issue with the SIM provider and fobbed me off for weeks. I was told I’d get 3 months subscription free.... that’s great, I get something free but should my dog go missing?? I asked for a refund as the product is not fit for purpose but they won’t. So best thing I can do is leave this review, warn other customers and tell everyone to avoid this lot... they ignore their twitter feed, block any posts that go on there and there’s cheaper/free/better options out there now. Do your research and check out the others that are on the market.
Not fit for purpose
I bought the tracker to help find my dog who is prone to running off. The adventure feature generally fails to connect even when in the middle of a London park. I’m now 15mins into my walk and it’s still ‘connecting to satellites’. A total waste of money.
