The main advantage of Findster Duo+ is its ability to perform real-time GPS tracking. Here's a videotutorial describing some of the features you can use!
Track your pet using Findster Duo+
In order to start tracking your pet using the Findster Duo+ GPS pet tracker, you should follow these steps:
- Get yourself in an outdoor environment, in order to have a good connection range and GPS accuracy.
- Turn on both modules.
Attach the Pet module to your pet's collar; carry your smartphone and the Guardian module.
- Make sure GPS and Bluetooth are active on your smartphone's settings.
- Open the Findster App.
- Make sure both the Guardian and the Pet module(s) are connected. You can verify this in the Findster App - there should be a green dot next to your name, and another next to your pet's.
- Make sure the Pet module you wish to track has its Live Tracking switched on, in the Home screen.
- Open the side Menu.
- Tap on Map.
- You can then track your pet's location on the Home screen, Map and/or Radar!
Please note that your pet's location only gets tracked if the Pet module is also registering activity at the same time. The GPS has a standard associated error and, if you're in an environment with unfavourable conditions, such as with obstructions, the pet's position may sometimes be tracked with a slight deviation. Due to this, the pin would appear to be "jumping" in the map, as it alternated between real and innacurate positions.
Using activity as a criteria, the Findster system knows the pet may not be moving during a certain period - if this is the case and yet the module is reporting new positions, they will be considered innacurate and discarded.
