The Zoombak Car and Family Locator is an assisted GPS personal locator thingie. It comes in three different versions, one for your car and family, one for your dog and one for … other things that you lose. The unit is the same for each, but the choice of charger and mounts are different. The Zoombak uses A-GPS to get fast fixes and if you need to know where the unit is it can transmit its current location via SMS. A full battery charge is good for about 150 location requests and it can text you when the battery is low or about to die.
Buying the unit is only the start though, there’s also ongoing network costs as it needs access to a cellphone network. A year’s worth of service starts around US$155 depending on how you pay but it’s US only. The Car and Family Locator unit itself is US$149.99.
Zoombak’s Advanced GPS Car & Family Locator will help you locate your car, and your loved ones in it and help bring them home safely. Great for monitoring teen drivers or other family members you worry about behind the wheel. In addition, the Zoombak locator will assist you in locating your car if it is stolen.
