What do you think about this product?
Personally .. I think it’s a great idea if every pet had a microchip that was able to be located via GPS. I was a little disappointed that it “appears” to not be available for service in Canada from their website. Also a little disappointed that besides the initial purchase you have to subscribe to a monthly service to continue to locate your pet with this product. But, then again – if they have the product and technology – should they not be compensated for their idea?
I foresee alternatives like this in the future. I know my cousin and friends who have an iPhone can locate their iPhone on any computer if they activate its GPS locater, and do not believe they have to pay a monthly fee. The times you would lose or misplace your iPhone seems much more likely than losing your pet.
