We find ourselves using the Find My Phone app on our devices regularly, so the option of tagging our favorite gear and vehicle with this option is extremely appealing. Ping is a GPS locator that features cellular, GPS and bluetooth for the best in both worlds. While featuring a small form factor, it also claims to hold a charge for up to 3 months.
Like our favorite find our device app, you can sync the tracker using their iOS/Android app to easily locate Ping, which uses Bluetooth, cellular and GPS for provide its location.
At $100 each, they’re on the pricey side for mounting on the cats collar, (he manages to ditch all of them eventually) but on the upside, when he manages to pull it off and leave it in the dirt somewhere you’ll be able to track and retrieve it. I’d love to stick one on my commuter bike or our bikes while traveling, in our vehicles or in my camera bag. (f* those thieves!)
