Detailed features and benefits list

The GPS 3300's advanced features allow you to:

  • define the schedule of hourly fixes
  • program VHF beacon cycles to coincide with your tracking schedule
  • calculate operational life based upon your selected schedule
  • monitor the animal's activity in 2 axes
  • replace your own collar battery packs
  • eliminate the need for exchange collar inventory
  • correlate temperature sensor data with GPS location accuracy
  • answer questions never thought possible!

The GPS 3300 is capable of tracking the fine-scale movements of individual animals through a variety of habitats. Using collars with differential correction, you can obtain highly accurate position readings with an error of less than five metres. The collar's large data storage capacity can significantly improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your wildlife study. Furthermore, by taking advantage of our highly flexible scheduling option, your study can be customized to your particular research needs.

The result is a very accurate map of the travel paths and behaviour patterns of smaller animals than previously possible!

Lotek offers unlimited customer support and a full one year warranty on all of our equipment.
