Retrieve your GPS tags more easily with our PinPoint Beacon tags. From 3.5g, you can now have accurate, automated locations and a built-in VHF beacon.

With the fully programmable schedule, you choose the days and times that GPS locations are recorded and separately when the VHF beacon transmits, to meet the specific requirements of your study. For example, you may want to have the beacon after the GPS locations have been collected.

Great for:

  • Relocating tagged animals after migration
  • Keeping track during the GPS schedule
  • Retrieving tags after short-term home range studies

Please see the features, specifications for more information, and contact us to discuss your requirements.

  • User friendly and flexible GPS scheduler
  • Schedule the beacon transmissions separately
  • Frequency of VHF Beacon chosen by you
  • Mortality detection
  • Limited recharges, depending on deployment
  • Tubes for harness attachment
  • Other customizations (e.g. extra protection, thicker antenna) available on request




Customized to suit your project and species, the PinPoint Beacon tags are made to order.
