You know those GPS bugs they use in the movies with the handy, easy-to-see red light, usually placed in the wheel arch of the bad guy’s car? Well it turns out they’re real and they don’t have self-defeating red lights on them, they’ve got a little yellow cat.

The Omni Tracker is a GPS unit attached to a quadband GSM transmitter. The GPS chip keeps track of where the unit is and then transmits the location and velocity via SMS. Being quadband you can use it pretty much anywhere in the world there’s a GSM signal. The unit is quite small, about 50 mm square by 25 mm thick, and can be left in a handbag, buried in a child’s backpack or even attached to a dog’s collar.

The Omni Tracker can be programmed to relay it’s position when you ring it from a designated phone. You can also set up a “GPS Fence” and have the unit transmit it location if it passes outside the boundary or just tell it to broadcast at a set interval.

It’s accurate to within 10 metres, the battery should last around 48 hours and it has an SOS button to squawk to pre-designated cellphone numbers. It comes with two batteries, software, and charger/usb cable, you’ll just need to provide your own SIM.
