GPS Locations downloadable over VHF radio,
from just 3.5g

Accurate, automated GPS locations are taken at times/dates programmed by you, to meet the requirement of your study. The locations can then be remotely downloaded with our VHF PinPoint Command Unit, when you want to with no need to recapture your animal. If retrieved, the tag can be recharged and used repeatedly.

Great for:

  • Species that are difficult to recapture
  • Periodic data collection during your study
  • Species prone to disturbance
  • Customised to suit animal
  • Highly flexible, programmable tags
  • Lightweight, easy to use PinPoint Commander
  • User rechargeable (if tag retrieved)
