Introduction

Amber Alert GPS Locator has big thumb-sized button in the front, 3 light indicators above it, and a speaker too. Charging port and volume controls are on the left side, while the pre-installed SIM card is on the right.

The overall dimension measures at 2.8-inch H x 1.5-inch W x 0.8-inch D, and it weighs just 2.35 ounces. Powered by 880mAh rechargeable Lithium Ion, this tracker can stay on for up to 40 hours with 5 minutes location update.

The main function is indeed to provide updated location information for you through a companion mobile app compatible with Android and iPhone.

You can also access the information via Amber Alert’s web portal. The location information is displayed in map view with color coded marks as follows:

– Green Mark indicates current location
– Yellow Mark indicates last known location
– Red Mark indicates previous locations

History list is sorted by date and time to allow you to see all previous locations as well. Map view is updated every 5 minutes, and this is not user-customizable.

The location information is accurate to 15 meters (49 feet), but it gets better when the tracker has clear view of the sky as users can see accuracy within a few meters (5-10 feet). In addition, Amber Alert GPS Locator has Breadcrumb feature that displays every tracker’s location within a regular interval.

The five-minute location update is still active, but you will get notified with Breadcrumb trails at regular interval from 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 60 minutes, or 120 minutes.

Amber Alert Parent App delivers more or less the same information as the web portal. The app is compatible with Android 2.3.3 of higher and iOS 4.3 of newer.

Zones and Predator

Besides updating the location information, Amber Alert GPS Locator provides Zones or Geofence. You can create up to 20 zones, and receive notifications anytime the tracker enters or exits any of those parameters.

Another good thing is that the zone can be created to cover an area from 1,000 feet to 10,000 feet. Wider zones can be necessary in certain places for examples airports or large department store.

Predator Alert is a unique feature to this tracker. When enabled, a Blue Man mark displayed on the map represents the residence of registered sex offender.

When this feature is disabled, the blue mark will be replaced by gray mark. There is also Speeding Alert that triggers notification anytime the tracker travels more than the maximum speed allowed. Maximum speed is user-adjustable feature.

Two-Way Communication

The big round button at the front is for activating SOS function, but it can also dial a number to initiate voice call. You can setup a primary number to which the tracker will call anytime the SOS button is pressed for more than 2 seconds. At the same time, it will also send text alerts to other 10 different numbers.

Since the tracker also has SIM card, you can call this GPS locator as well. It will not ring, but you can still hear the surrounding sounds. Also, the tracker will only accept Voice call from the primary number.

Montly Plan Subscription

Please check the price point for the main product, activation fee and monthly plan (which is needed for voice and text messages) offered by sellers.
