As tiny as a US Quarter and not much  thicker than 4 stacked together, plus all of the functionality a true end to end GPS solution should offer!

Having teamed up with some of the best brains in the business and developed partnerships with cutting edge service providers, we bring you the smallest ever, end to end GPS solution in the world. Period! We've packed some amazing technology into our little RETRIEVOR, which combined with our free Androd, iPhone & Web Apps, will allow you to track almost anything, anywhere in the world. 

 

GEO- FENCING

You can also track your RETRIEVOR  live online and follow its every move, set up Geo -Fence parameters which trigger an e-mail, ringtone or sms when the device leaves or enters the designated area.

 

 

What's Inside RETRIEVOR?

Powered by a record breaking technology which allows us to keep things really, really small. Our GPS unit is the industry's smallest, fully integrated module with on-board antenna. Featuring  advanced minature packaging technology and an ultra small footprint too! 

 Key facts

• Complete GPS System-in-Package (SiP) for high-volume, cost-sensitive applications
• Supports indoor tracking and roaming for geo-enabled products
• 5.6mm x 5.6mm module combines ultra-low power consumption and high sensitivity

The integration of a SiRFstarIV™ GPS processor enables the unit to operate in challenging GPS environments, such as indoor tracking or when the end-user is on the move. This high level of GPS performance is achieved by using innovative GPS firmware which can detect changes in context, temperature, and satellite signals, and opportunistically update its internal parameters which enables near-continuous navigation.

Within its 5.6mm x 5.6mm package, this unit integrates an RF shield; TCXO and RTC crystal; LNA and SAW filters; and UART, SPI or I2C host interfaces; whilst achieving ultra-low power consumption of less than 15mW; a fast position fix of under 1 second and sensitivity of -163dBm.

 

By selecting and partnering with the very best manufacturers of micro technology, RETRIEVOR is really tiny. Measuring only 25mm (0.98") in diameter and  9mm (0.35") means you can use  RETRIEVOR to track almost  anything. With it's extended battery life, RETRIEVOR can remain active for up to 25 days before needing a recharge! Recharging is via the suipplied USB A to Micro B cable, or through mains adapter and typical charge time is less than 2 hours. RETRIEVOR will also notify you via e-mail, ringtone or sms when the device needs a recharge!



  

You can also use any standard USB A cigarette lighter adapter to charge RETRIEVOR (using the USB A - MIcro B cable which comes included with your device) These chargers are freely available in most stores. 

 

 

 

 

Free Android, iPhone and Web Apps

Track your very own RETRIEVOR any way you wish, using our feature rich applications. These allow you to set up a Geo-Zone which triggers either a text, email or ringtone once your RETRIEVOR is out of the zone. You can pinpoint RETRIEVOR's exact location by zooming in, check speed, distance travelled and route taken. RETRIEVOR is accurate to within 5 meters so finding your lost item is a breeze!

 

Ease Of Use Is Always In Mind

You can chose your own icon  from a standard menu for each RETRIEVOR device you want to track or even upload your very own. The one shown above is an icon displaying our dog Rover, our friendly, tail wagging wanderer. By clicking on Rover in "Radar" mode (shown above), you are automatically taken to the "Map" screen (shown below),  displaying the exact location of Rover, route taken, speed, and distance traveled. With all this information, there's little chance Rover will be missing in action for too long!

Multi RETRIEVOR Support!

Want to keep track of your daughter and son's cars or two family pets at the same time? No problem! Upon activation, you can track and retrieve several devices on one radar or map screen.

 

RETRIEVOR Pet Collars

Fully integrated RETRIEVOR pet collars help you keep track of your favorite pooch. Ideal for pets 8 lbs + and cats too!. We've incorporated a unique mounting system, which allows you to "pop" the RETRIEVOR out of the collar when it's time to recharge the battery. We'll be introducing different colored collars and RETRIEVOR units once we start full scale production!

 

 

Permanent fitting to your vehicle

Using this special cable, you can attach RETRIEVOR permanently to almost any car, tractor or truck, eliminating the need to recharge the unit.

 

The Road Ahead

At this point in our venture we have already selected technology and manufacturing partners, the hardware design is secured and we have built a functioning prototype. This needs tweaking and is an ongoing process during the development and refinement of our product. We have also shortlisted manufacturers for commercial production and are currently in negotiations with them.

Activation and Subscription Fees

Using satelites orbiting the earth to keep track of your RETRIEVOR is an expensive business, which means there is a $5.95 monthly subscription fee for your first RETRIEVOR. This is charged annually in advance. Additional RETRIEVOR's can be added to your subscription plan for only $1.09 extra per month. Some good news though - there is NO activation fee and on top of this,  all Indiegogo contributors get the first 6 months absolutely FREE!

 

What We Need & What You Get

In a nutshell, we need your help through pre-orders to get the required funding to comercialize our venture and put RETRIEVOR into large scale production. This is also an exercise to assess demand for our innovative products and at the same time helps us build a strong relationship with our early adopters. 

With your help, we need to: 

  • Convert our prototypes to production-ready models and get all the regulatory approvals (yep, we need these to sell them)
  • Place our first production orders (we are working with a manufacturing company with lot's of GPS hardware experience, but ultimately, we need to know how many RETRIEVOR's to make!)
  • We also need funding to further our App development and back-end technology and support.

And if you’re international, we want to help you out too. With the exception of  the USA, Canada and the European Union (EU), we still have a lot to figure out in regards to regulations in other specific countries. We'll get there eventually, after all, GPS technology is already available in almost all of them so it's really just a case of getting the correct paperwork in order!

We will also commit 5% of all of our profits from the sale of RETRIEVOR during 2013 to fund other technology crowdfunding projects.
