Introducing the all new PingGPS mobile app. Redesigned from the ground up to make it faster and easier to immediately get the location information you need from your Pings.
After talking with hundreds of customers, we took our existing mobile app and device firmware, hit delete and started from scratch! No more having to request the device location or wait to find out the last known location with the app. The all new Ping device and app gives you immediate access to the last known location with just a tap.
With the all new Ping, once the device moves a "significant" amount, it immediately starts trying to connect to cell towers and GPS satellites to report in its location. All this information is securely stored and immediately available to you in the new mobile app.
The all new experience makes it fast and easy to find whatever is important to you whether it's in the next room with our Bluetooth "proximity" search which glows the closer you get or 3,000 miles away using a combination of GPS and cellular.
IMPORTANT - this app is not compatible with the other Ping app, which is being discontinued. Once you move to this app and upgrade your devices, you need to stop using the other app.
We're going to be constantly improving and updating our mobile apps moving forward. This new version has a number of stability and over-the-air update fixes. Nothing major we just want to make sure it works for everyone!
Ratings and Reviews
No more “I’m still here” BS!
Thank GOD for this update! This overhaul is what was sorely needed! In the 1.0 app, the ping gps would always say “I’m still here, same location as last you Cohen ted”, which wasn’t true as I have it in my car and know it isn’t at home, in the garage! Thank you ping development team for making these updates and proving this device to be way superior to tile and other costly cellular gps devices. Now, to find out about pricing plans to reup the cellular plans on my 3 pings.
This Ping App is great!
So far I’m quite happy with this Ping app. I did some tests today as my daughter was walking home from school and it tracked and updated her location at each street. Was never able to do that previously. Most likely due to the firmware update in conjunction with this app version.
I also like the battery warnings and that it takes advantage of Bluetooth which conserves juice.
Have a lot more testing to do but it’s a great improvement from the past app version.
I would like to see a refresh “button” or a pull drag down in the devices section so I don’t have to go back to My Devices to refresh. Also a cosmetic fix on my Max to display the “close” button outside of the notch area in portrait mode.
All in all I’m am very happy with this first release of Ping 2.0!
Update 12/6/18 - last few days of extensive use of app is showing great results. Both Pings show correct locations and update quickly. Battery appears to be lasting much longer then past firmware. I love the simplicity and clean design of this app.
What a great job the team has done to take this project to a higher level!!
