It’s great but there’s room for improvement
I’ve been using a tracker for one of my cats for a month now and it works fine for the most part. The design and materials used for the collar are sturdy enough although wigs other similar objects can scratch it easily. I have two issues the first being location history and overall accuracy. Now I understand this could be dependent on the country and location but sometimes there are spots on the heatmap that are way off not just a few meters but like the other side of the city. I know there’s no way my cat had been there since he doesn’t even leave the street he rarely wanders and the next minute it shows he’s back in the garden. Maybe the connection is weak or the tower has issues but fortunately real time tracking works fine. The other problem I had is the fact that I already had to ask for a replacement tracker. Unfortunately the collar or my cat got caught in something and instead of breaking away at the breakaway strip it came apart between the battery and the tracker so of course I couldn’t find it even though I spent half a day searching the last known location. So yes it does what it says and I like the activity monitoring feature but there definitely things that could be worked on.
So far I’m satisfied with this. My dog hasn’t gotten lost, but we are traveling in an RV and she has been getting in and out at rest stops, gas stations, and strange RV parks and it is reassuring to know that if she got loose I would have a chance of finding her. Let’s be realistic - nothing keeps your dog safer than a leash and an attentive owner. But mistakes happen and this seems to be a good safety net. I saw some complaints about the attachment system. Here’s what I’ve learned - 1. only try to attach to one thickness of your dog’s collar. If your dog’s collar has two laps of cloth, slip the attachment under only the top layer. Otherwise the attachment will seem ok but will fall off easily. If you get it properly attached it stays securely. 2. Figure out how to position the attachment device and the tracker first, before you start wresting with your dog. Or take the collar off so you can work more easily. It seems like the attachment clip and the tracker have to be positioned exactly so, and then when you hear a little click it is on securely. 3. I haven’t used it in live mode much, but even in the regular mode it seems pretty darn accurate. And probably the battery lasts longer, although we are still recharging it nightly.
Peace of mind
I love my Tracker gps. We moved to the country and having an invisible fence was our only option. All of our dogs are off leashed trained but the occasional husky exploration occurs. This gadget had given me peace of mind knowing my dog is where he should be even if I’m in another state. The clasp to attach to the collar hasn’t been the greatest (I’ve found it laying in the yard with the gps numerous times) but have found a bag to hold it to his collar. We turn it on every morning and have to charge it every other day to keep the battery alive. I have also noticed it likes to give me notices that my dog is out of the “fence” when he is really laying on my back porch. That’s ok with me! I’d rather be alerted falsely to make me go check on him instead of never receiving a message at all in the act that he does run off somewheres. I have also noticed that the turning on and off sound feature has stopped working (gps still works) and has recently having a white light appear with the red one. I have contacted customer service and am waiting for their reply. Hopefully it’s an easy fix or the extra insurance covers it! I’d hate to not have it working in case someone decides to take an afternoon run away from mom day!
Thank you Tractive Developers!
I am so thrilled to have finally found a product that I can use to track my cats in real time! Each spring for the past three years, when my two cats get spring fever and constantly barge the door whenever it’s opened, I feel sick to my stomach I may never see them again! So I began looking for something like this but three years ago, while I believe you may have been around, I’m thinking you were new and not a life of reviews just. So I waited . Last year, you were leader of the pack with reviews but if I recall, not as consistent as I would have liked, plus, I was concerned the GPS tracker might be a bit cumbersome for my one cat. What a difference a year makes! Congratulations on such consistently positive reviews! Those reviews prompted me to just place my order for two to place on my cats!!!! I’m so thrilled that I will finally have the piece of mind I’m looking for when they escape on me. Thanks for providing such a fantastic service for all us pet lovers! I’ll be sure to update my review once I receive product and activate my subscription! H. R. aka “Bugs Mom”
A dream come true!
I adore the tracker in almost every respect. Overall, I’d give it a 5 if and you could pay by month rather than for set number of years in advance, and the accuracy was just a tad better. For instance, I ran to put shoes on and get car keys because my cat was way outside of his fence. Just to be sure it wasn’t thrown off by being indoors, I checked my deck. Lo and behold my cat was napping there. Aside from that, it’s very accurate outdoors, and they warn you on the paperwork that being indoors could throw it off. In terms of ease of use, 5/5 my baby niece could use it. I love the notifications when my cat is out of the fence, I live in town and on a fairly busy street and worry about him being stolen/hit by a car. I’d tried just letting him out on a harness for a walk, but he hates the constraints so I bought this. Since a breakaway collar risks losing the tracker, or a normal collar risks choking my cat, I attach the tracker to a harness and just remove it when he’s indoors! He loves it and comes home with ease, or I can just find him and bring him in using live tracking.
Like it but...
I really like the Tractive app it works very well, although I wish the battery would last longer than 48 hours.😀 The Things I wish were different are: the collar clip- it can be difficult with a wiggly dog, there are easier designs out there. I also have sewn little zippered “sleeves” that I slip on my dogs’ collars to hold the tracker in place. Sure they are insured, but replacing is a issue I don’t need. The tracking mechanism is spot on for locating the dogs, only off occasionally during inclement or very cold weather—of course those are the most important times to track so you know the babies are safe. I have farm dogs who free roam 100 + acres and sometimes ya just want to know where they are!!! I also wish there was an 800 number for quick issues.. currently everything must be handled via email, which is ok BUT takes at least 24-48 hours for a reply, and if my dog is missing, I need help NOW not when y’all get around to it!!!! Please change that if you can!!! All in all a good product/good purchase.
I use this to track my cat and it helps me SO MUCH. She was not returning for days at a time and I worried that she was at someone else’s house. After checking the tracker, I can go find her in the neighborhood, before the battery runs out. The battery lasts for two days. I like the satellite feature, so I can see the exact place she is at. I like seeing her history, and also that there is AR, a heat sensor, and the flashing light helps if it is dark and I can’t find her. I post screen caps to my Facebook friends so they can see how many miles my cat traveled and we all giggle about it. I would like for there to be a collar for cats, because the tracker can fall off and then I go and retrieve it. The app works great. I love it and check it all day. I would post photos, but I can’t do that in this review. I like that I can see how much battery is left from the app, so I know to look for her and charge it again.
Tracker works flawlessly
I’m in the US and my husband and Henry (the cat) are in Switzerland. The peace of mind this device brings is enormous. The low battery warning is quite good. I check regularly and send screen shots as reminders. 😑 It’s not clear to me why I’m off one house number. (Admin set-up = correct) Henry lives at #24 and the tracker address says #25, which is across the street. Still, I can see from the map that he is home. This system ought to be made mandatory, although not sure how. If you don’t want to know, don’t look, but keep battery charged and collar on just in case. Tractive’s accuracy, in our experience, is perfect.
Great on my Pyrenees...
Charge every night it works everyday.... If I have to have it on her at night no problem charge last over 24 hrs if I don’t hit track all the time... Charge ruthenium just like a cell phone... I don’t trust the collar clip though.... I put a narrow strip of black duct type around the clip and gps every morning to make sure she does not scratch it and pull gps out of clip.... did not tape it once and I later found the gps on the road and a car ran over it... Big dogs... tape it on... the gps is worth a little time and duct tape... thinking about using them on my horses when I pack in the mountains.....
Finds the dog
Able to see exactly where the dogs are when they leave. Saves a lot of time because I know where to go to look. We live in the country and they can disappear in in a minute. Used it twice in the first two days. Wish I could set a tone alert when they leave the fence as they can cover a lot of ground before I see the notice. We will see how well the collar clips hold up. Have to remove from collar to charge. So far it functions quite well.
Good tracker, iffy software
I used the tracker for the first time today as my wife walked Dusty around the block. Using the Live Tracking feature, I could see every time they stopped, even which side of the street they were on. Accuracy seemed to be about +/- 30’. The biggest problem seems that you cannot adjust the virtual fence close enough. Dusty can easily climb our 4’ fence. She would be several houses away before the virtual fence would alert. At least I can get in the car and track her down.
Works well in town.
I just love the indicators for distance and direction to Marcella. That’s been more useful than the map. I wish live tracking would work more reliably. I tap it and it spins for maybe minute then gives up. I sometimes have to tap it 3 or four times before it will start live trading. There is no indication of whether it’s the cellular or GPS connection that’s not working. Quite often when this is happening my phone shows a.strong Verizon signal.
Best investment for your pet
Dont wait till its too late and your pet is lost or gone. This device is priceless. I now know where my dog is anytime. Their app is very simple to use to track your pet. I get a text telling me if he’s left an area that I’ve set the parameters. Tractive Customer Service Team is top notch, they will make sure to resolve any issue you may have. If you love your pet, this device can/will save you much heartache
I bought this gps after my dog was stolen & then returned. After the incident I knew that I needed a device like this for him since he sneaks off and runs around the neighborhood (we live in a rural area by the beach) and I can’t go out looking for him all the time, being able to check up on him and get notifications if he goes out of bounds gives me great peace of mind. Thank you so much Tractive❤️.
Very friendly customer service
Have been using the app and product for a little over a year now. Works great (the GPS isn’t real-time but close enough to keep track of my curious Shiba Inu) and the augmented reality feature is really cool. The clip I had that attached the device to the dog collar broke, and Paula from their customer support was more than helpful in helping me find a replacement part.
