Location-Based Technologies PocketFinder


Locate your luggage, your pets, and/or people anywhere on the planet with these cookie-size GPS devices. Just hook one to your cat's collar, a suitcase, or your child's keychain; then log on to the Web or dial a number to find out where they are, within 30 feet of their location. The PocketFinder can tell you how fast your leadfoot teenagers are driving and send you a text message when they enter or leave predesignated areas (like the school library or the mall). Batteries run for 7 days on a single charge, and you get a text message when the juice is running low.
