Barred Owl GPS Tracking Device

GPS with 2 different power options

We started this project as we start most projects, with the maximum allowable weight for the GPS, the remote download option and the VHF transmitter. In this case, for the non-rechargeable device that limit was 28 grams. We produced a 26 gram GPS with data download and added a 2 gram VHF transmitter.

That is a lot to pack into a 28 gram device. In fact, since we produced this order in March 2013 we have found a way to shave 2 more grams without affecting the GPS performance. Adding options such as the Smart GPS feature would have eliminated some squandering of precious battery life under certain conditions but in this case the option was not selected by the customer even though it adds no weight at all.

If you have a need and are ready to work with a company that is responsive to those needs please click on the Contact Us button in the menu bar above, submit an inquiry form and expect an answer to your inquiry within 1 business day. And remember that we maintain a full time customer support staff for your 'after the sale' support.
