How it works


This product consists of 2 components. The FLR V GPS unit on the animal and the FLR V base station.


  • User programmable both prior to deployment and during deployment.
  • User sets GPS position schedule and Smart GPS settings. Smart GPS allows you to control whether or not a GPS position will be attempted if the subject animal has not been active since the previous GPS position attempt.
    This feature may be enabled or disabled and you control the activity parameters that determine if the feature forces the GPS position to be skipped or not.

Base station:

  • Automatically collects data from the GPS units. No human interaction required. Leave in the field and data will be collected from all GPS units that come within range.
  • Alternatively, you can travel with the base station to the animals’ locations and when within range GPS data are automatically transferred to the base station.
  • Base station is waterproof, has a battery life of 5 days on a charge and you can drive a truck over it and it will still work.
    We know because we did it!
  • Built for extreme conditions.

Export data to your GIS program in any of the following formats: Lat/Long, UTM, KML, .dbf, .shp or .shx.

Can be configured as glue on, backpack, tailmount, collar, pod, patagial tag, ear tag, necklace or implant.
