Independence, but protected by a virtual safety zone
You can't always be there for them, but you can keep an eye on them, and give them the gift of independence, by setting a virtual safety zone. Then you can rest at ease knowing that if they do wander you’ll receive a text message or email alert to your phone so you know they're on the move, and you can see where they're going.
Map their whereabouts on your mobile phone
Loc8tor GPS lets you see a map of your friend or relative's movements on any computer connected to the internet – laptop, tablet or smartphone – and it works when you're abroad too.
Accurate to within 16 feet (5m) and unlimited range
Pinpoint your loved one's location using the same technology used to guide cars and other vehicles. Loc8tor GPS uses satellites to keep track of their movements and the GSM cellphone network to report their location to your phone, tablet or laptop.
SOS Call for help
Ideal for letting a family member or carer know that they are in need of assistance, the Loc8tor GPS has a panic button, which sends an alert via SMS or email when pressed, and can alert up to 4 different people at the same time.
Long battery life
If you use Loc8tor GPS every day, the battery should last for 7-10 days – considerably longer than most GPS trackers. But in battery save mode, making just one report a day, it will last for up to nine months. And if the battery's running low, you'll see a warning so you always know what's going on.
Small and light GPS tracker - just 2.11 ounces
Imminently pocketable at just 2.677in(h) x 1.417in(w) x 0.787in(d), the Loc8tor GPS tracker easily attaches to your loved one's belt or bag with the splash-proof case (supplied) that protects it from the elements and from any knocks, bumps or scratches
No monthly contract, just a simple pay-as-you-go price plan
Loc8tor GPS uses a cellphone-style SIM card to display your loved one's position on an online map. So there's a charge for tracking, but unlike some GPS devices, there's no contract and you can select the pay-as-you-go price plan that best suits you.
A powerful aid to independent living
Wherever you are, whatever you're doing, Loc8tor GPS works like an extra pair of eyes to make sure your loved one doesn't go wandering off unexpectedly. It can raise the alarm if they wander out of a designated 'safe area' and allows you to track exactly where they are on a map that you and the rest of the family can view via your laptop, tablet or cellphone. Ideal for use by vulnerable elderly people or loved ones suffering from Alzheimer's, Dementia or Autism to name a few. Whether they're in your home or theirs, in sheltered housing or even on vacation, Loc8tor GPS can help keep your loved ones safe, and give you peace of mind.
Protect your loved ones with a virtual safety zone
Using the online tracking panel you can not only track your loved one, but also see exactly where they've been. You can additionally set up safety zones and as soon as they step outside it, you'll receive a text message or email telling you where they are.
See where they are with a map on your phone
With Loc8tor GPS's detailed tracking panel on your computer, tablet or cellphone, you can see exactly where they are on the map in real time – and it continues to tell you their location at whatever intervals you decide – every ten seconds, 30 seconds, every minute or every hour.
Unlimited range outdoors
The range is unlimited so long as they are outdoors and there’s a cellphone signal, it will work in virtually any country in the world. So you can even track them while you're on vacation. For those situations when they are indoors, it will still tell you their whereabouts, just not their exact position in the building.
Low-cost price plan
Loc8tor GPS is one of the most affordable trackers you can buy, with a single, one-off payment plus the flexibility for you to choose the period you want to track – 1,3 or 12 months. Its GPS technology uses global satellites to track your loved one (just like the GPS on your cellphone) and also like your phone, it uses a SIM card to report their location. Some GPS systems lock you into a contract whether you use it or not. But Loc8tor GPS gives you the freedom to pay for the period you need. Choose your price plan and you can check their location as many times as you like. No other tracker gives you the same range of features at such a reasonable price.

Tiny, Cheap, but powerful!Review by Chris (Posted on 7/8/2013)
Just wanted to say thanks for an amazing product.
The set up was easy, even if the quick start instructions are a little out of date!
I have the tracker located inside my car so I can keep an eye on it if it when I leave it at home, or of course follow it if it ever gets stolen. Its hidden beneath the interior plastics and hard wired (using a proper USB charger) to the a power source, this charges the device every time I use the car to ensure the battery is topped up and allows me to have the device report every 5 mins which I feel is regular enough.
I do think the instructions on the website and the quick start guide both need updating however as it has me confused a few times, however the product itself is amazing for the price.
Loc8tor Helps the Ambulance ServiceReview by Dan Melhuish (Posted on 5/17/2013)
- With 15 00 walkers spread over a 26 mile route across most of Central London, ensuring that the closest medical teams can be dispatched to a casualty anywhere on the event is an key part of the safety operation. The accuracy and reliability of the Loc8tor units placed in the medical vehicles was instrumental in helping to do this.
Literally a life saverReview by Emma Clark (Posted on 9/1/2011)
- This GPS like Sara from London is a God send. I was dubious about buying this device but it is really worth every penny for piece of mind. My husband also wanders off, not knowing what year we are in, where we live or where he is. When I can't reach him I locate him and go and collect him before he ends up in too much bother. Anthony and Ruben (the tech experts) are such massive help and I have recommended the GPS Tracker to many others including the NHS. My husband has a type of seizure hence the wandering but ideal for alzheimers or mental health issues too. Easy to set up, easy to use, a fantastic little invention. Many thanks.
Thank you for such a great productReview by Sara - London (Posted on 7/27/2011)
- Love the Loc8tor GPS and just wanted to tell you how much we’ve come to rely on it. My husband because of his condition frequently wanders off. I can now see exactly where he is and pick him up quickly without all the stress and uncertainty of trying to find him. Thank you for such a great product

Q - What do I have to do to get started using my Loc8tor GPS tracker?
A - After you purchase your Loc8tor GPS tracker with one of the three tracking plans on offer, we suggest that you plug in the tracker to give it a power top up, however, your tracker will come pre-installed with the selected months of GPS credits so it is ready to work straight out of the box.
Q - How long should the Loc8tor GPS battery last?
A - The more frequent the reporting set in the tracking panel, the more battery life the device uses. Climate can also affect the battery life. If the GPS signal is weak due to clouds or high-rise buildings, the Loc8tor GPS will keep searching for the best GPS signal, thus using power. On average settings you should see a battery life of between 4 – 10 days. However if the device does not move much it can monitor it for typically up to 14 days.
Q - Why are Top-Up credits required?
A - The Loc8tor GPS will need to send the location of the device to the tracking panel and can only do so with an initial tracking plan, and once that has expired, regular top-ups. The top-ups also enable the device to send alerts should the device go outside of any set-up safety zones.
Q - Can I use my mobile phone or iPad to follow my tracker?
A - Yes you can and the best bit is that you do not need the latest expensive smartphone to do so. Just go to mytrackingpanel.com/#map from any internet enabled mobile device including a tablet and enter in your 6 digit device ID. You can use our mobile tracking panel from any device with internet access and a browser.
Q - How do I set up alerts?
A - The Panic Button and the Geo-fence (Safety zone) features can be activated and set up from your tracking panel. To do so, you will need to enter the device contacts’ numbers or even email address. These are the recipients of the alert messages when the panic button is activated or the device breaches the geo-fence.
Q - Is the Loc8tor Pet GPS tracker waterproof?
A - No, although it is certified to withstand the occasional splash. Make sure the USB connection flap is closed properly.
Q - Can I charge my Loc8tor GPS tracker from my laptop or PC?
A - It is possible to charge your GPS tracker from your computer, but you would need to purchase an additional USB cable to do so.
Q - Who can get access to the tracking panel?
A - It is possible for multiple people to view the tracking panel all at the same time. Simply provide the website address for the tracking panel along with the device IMEI (or password if set up) to those you wish to grant access to.
Q - Will my Loc8tor GPS tracker work indoors?
A - No, GPS technology only works outside, and the tracker will only work if it is able to get a good GPS signal along with a good mobile phone signal. In areas where there is little or no mobile phone reception, the device will struggle to report if at all.
Q - Will my Loc8tor GPS tracker work abroad?
A - We have trade agreements in place so that the Loc8tor GPS tracker will work across the whole of North America and Europe where there is a mobile phone signal. Although we cannot guarantee that it will work in all countries, the device is set up to roam, so should be able to work in most countries around the world.
Q - If I have two Loc8tor GPS trackers, can they both be viewed through the same tracking panel?
A - Yes, we can set up multiple devices all under one account, so when you log in to your tracking panel, you can have visibility of all of your trackers in one place.
Q - Can I put my own SIM card into a Loc8tor GPS tracker?
A - No, all Loc8tor GPS trackers come supplied with a SIM card which is locked to that device. It is not possible for us to supply a GPS tracker without an active SIM card.
