I’ve just returned from a hike up in the mountains with no cell reception and the goTeleb performed perfectly! The messaging feature worked exactly as described and the GPS provided precise location data.The goTele team is definitely dedicated to making their product a game changer in the market. I had some initial questions and issues, but the goTele team responded within 24 hours and the problems were all resolved.I have a Moto Z Force with an extra battery pack, but since there was no cell connection the battery usage was actually very low, and was at about 60% after about 5 hours of hiking and another 3 hours of general use.You can use a single goTele unit by itself and just add yourself to your own group, but it works even better when you have two and join the same group.Be sure to read the documentation and experiment a bit beforehand. Also make sure that you download the maps for the area you will be hiking beforehand.
I got this because we go camping a few times a year and my boys like to explore around the area, but I have bad knees and get tired quickly. They are getting to the age (they are 9 yo twins) where they can explore a bit on their own, but that makes me nervous. We’ve used walkie talkies but if I ask them where they are they’ll say something like “right by a big tree!”. *sigh* This will pinpoint exactly where they are so I can keep track of them giving me piece of mind. I know it works because right after I purchased it, my sister who is an avid hiker, borrowed it over the weekend and put it on her dog who is allowed to go off leash on the trail. She sometimes spots a creature and runs off making my sister run after her to keep tabs on her. She said she was able to pinpoint her location when she spotted a rabbit and ran off. She also set up the electric fence and could tell if she lagged too far behind. She didn’t have to keep stopping to wait for her to sniff everything she came in contact with. She could go ahead and make sure she wasn’t too far behind. So I’m glad she borrowed it, now she wants one but I suspect she’ll just keep borrowing mine.

I just received my trackers & I’m not able to get most of the functions to work. I’m running Android 8.0.0. The gotele shows a solid blue light on both devices but the app says “No GPS found” when you select “Start” & when you select “location” it says “Waiting for local…”. If SOS is pressed on the device that light starts flashing but nothing else happens. I can’t get maps to load but that is probably because location isn’t working. The only feature I can get to work is texting but the app has to be open with the screen on or the message doesn’t come through & you’d never know I’ve was sent.I’ve used two different Android devices & have the same issues with both.
I have two children. I want to know their real-time location at school because they are not yet old enough to protect themselves. When their car leaves home, we receive an alarm every morning, and when they arrive at school, we receive another alarm. If they leave school early, we will also receive an alarm. Accuracy and signal strength are impressive. This equipment is really satisfied, it will do as it says!
I love this GPS tracker! I’ve been looking for one for quite awhile because I take care of my dads dog frequently and he is always worried I’m going to lose him, especially since I let him go off leash at the park sometimes. A lot of other trackers have monthly fees of some sort so I picked this one. It works amazingly. I had my dad download the app and log in so he can always see where Tycho is. The battery lasts a long time. I left it on all day with no problem. The app itself was difficult to figure out at first but once I got the hang of it, it worked well. I’m going skiing tomorrow with my friends and I’m excited to test it in the mountains!

This is the first time I use such gps tracker. But true to it, there isn’t sim card required. The build is very rugged n lasting. There are three indicating Lights. Power, Gps and sos. I didnt try the sos function. Power flashes white when there is no group defined for the tracker. If u have a few trackers working together, you can built a group to see status. Do note that each phone only tie to one tracker. I use this to track my kids whereabouts. So my wife tracks one and I track one. It also has geo fencing feature. Didn’t they out. It should alert you if tracker goes out of boundary. As my kid school is very near, so it didnt trigger the alert. Some downside. It takes quite long to determine tracker location for android system. And for iOS, the tracker charted the location of my kids in an offline map. It us quite accurate but slow. It reflects after a while. Not real time.

The tracking units themselves are very accurate and my dog (a Boxer mix) had no problems with one hanging on her collar. Most of the advertised features work, but there are 3 major problems: 1. The geofence is only able to be made in circles around you, and is not customizable. Meaning you can’t shape to the boundaries of your property. 2. When the person (or in my case, dog) you’re tracking exits the geofence, a silent text appears on your screen to inform you of it, and you have to have the app open and on screen to get the alets. No audio warnings or vibrations whatsoever. Meaning unless you’re constantly staring at the app on your phone the geofence alert is completely useless.. 3. The app also gives you the option to save your tracked routes, but only the routes made by YOU (the tracker). It does NOT save the routes made by the unit that you’re tracking.So in conclusion the geofence cannot sufficiently cover my 32 acres of rectangular shaped property without going into my neighbor’s properties, it won’t alert me that my dog as gone beyond the geofence unless I’m always staring at the app (which defeats the whole purpose of having alerts to begin with), and it’ll save the paths that I make (which I couldn’t care less about) but not my dog’s paths. I can only hope that gotele will eventually fix these mistakes, but until then I have no use for this item..

So there are a few trails near my cabin that I’ve always wanted to know where they go exactly and how long they are.I got this GPS to track my position for these treks and it works great!I also plan on using this with my dog. I’ll have one tracker on my dog and the other on me so I can keep track of her while we go on hikes!The app is easy to connect the GPS, it works really well.
