Hi All,

 

My Ocicat keeps coming home bleeding - but not from fighting. There is something in the environment doing it.

 

It's got me stressed so I am looking to track her with one of those pet GPS trackers until it happens next to try and figure out what's causing it.

 

I can find $200+ ones new in NZ - but that sort of price is ridiculous - can get an entire phone for that.

 

I know I can order one in the sub $100 (sub $50 even) range from overseas - but don't really want to wait a month+ for delivery.

 

Wondering if perhaps someone has one they don't use any more they'd be happy to flick on?

 

I don't mind pulling out an SD card to view tracking data - although remote tracking via a SIM card // WiFi would be way better.

 

Anyone interested? Or even have any suggestions?

 

 

 

Cheers,

 

Jesse

What phone network?  I bought one to play with, but as I'm on 2 degrees who turned off 2g, it doesn't go any more....but it should still work for VF.

 

I found out the protocol it used and was using it with GPS Gate....but traccar should also work.

Hi mate,

 

VF not an issue. Can always grab a prepay.

 

Does it record the logs locally too? Or you have to use some online service?

I'm sure it had a sd card slot.  I'd have to check, but I was always intending to hook it to an online service.  I tend to run my own.

Hey again,

 

Definitely sounds like it could do the trick. Are you in the AK? What might you be interested in letting it go for?

 

My cat is only a wee 3kg girl, so hoping it's not TOO big. Does it have a model so I can find a pic?

Yeah I think it was more a dog one, about 50-60. Mm in length. I see if I can find the AliExpress link.

Not sure it would work for a kitten.

Maybe you could look for an offline one as they might be smaller.

Hey again,

 

She's not a kitten, she's 10 years old - but she's still quite small.

 

Difficult to tell how big the tracking bit is cause they all shoop their images on AliExpress.

 

Maybe I just need to order one from overseas and wait.

I think the only real way you'll get a small enough one would be with sd card only recording.....so it has no online component, just the GPS, maybe even just an a-gps one  depends how accurate you need.
