They claim an unobstructed range of 2500 ft for the tracker, it doesnt record GPS coordinates but it is water resistant and looks like it would be a great lost drone tracker. Only weighs 16 g.

  • I would not try to attach such strong emitter to my child;s body...

    That's 2500 in open space right? Under ideal conditions? I would be more interested to see what happens when you stick it in the trees and see what kind of range you get then.

  • 2500ft range vs the 160ft of BT4.0 specs, and 2 month continuous GPS reception, is that even possible?

  • Thanks for posting.  I saw this earlier today and was going to post as well.

  • Very limited Android support, since Bluetooth 4.0 isn't fully supported on most phones. If you could live with shorter range device (100 ft.), the original StickNFind is cheaper: http://www.indiegogo.com/sticknfind/x/1850056.
