Summary: I bought this in november '13 to track my wondering dog. It has many features and works pretty well. A year of free service is included with purchase of these GTU units. In May '14 my GTU stopped communicating with the AT&T network.
Discontinued Model!! New unit would not hold a charge, requires me to pay shipping to have it replaced with a used unit.

Summary: Unit would not hold a charge right out of the box. It took me five phone calls over a week to get Garmin to agree to exchange it for another unit. Then I was told that the model was discontinued, so they would have to send me a refurbished unit.
Summary: Pay attention to the battery life explanation. I bought it thinking that it could last for weeks but not for the way I use it. Overall it has worked great. It sends me a message when my elderly mother leaves her house and again when she drives back into her garage. Love it!
Summary: Never done a review on anything ever before so here goes. My son does Ironman competitions (swim, bike and run) and I've been to a number of them over the last couple of years to cheer him on and especially to take some photos.
Summary: I have had this unit for a couple of years--bought it to track my teenage daughter while she drove. Works great for that...except if you live where the weather is hot. We live in North Texas and I am on my THIRD unit. I have called Garmin repeatedly and finally asked for a credit..

Summary: I purchased this item because Garmin stands for GPS. I received this GPS unit and promptly charged this and registered it. I downloaded the Tracker app and it seemed all well coordinated. That is until I used it. Having had a prior GPS tracking unit I knew what I was looking for. 1. Accuracy. 2.
Summary: I love this GPS tracker. It has a free service for a year and after a year will be $4.95/month. I use this to track my daughter from bus stop to the house. I can use the Garmin Tracker App on my iPhone to get live "real time" updates.
Summary: Did exactly what I was expecting. I bought this as, I admit, an over cautious parent. I placed it in my 4 year old's backpack while we were at disneyland. After riding one ride I was not sure if the rest of my family had gone to the next area of if they were still where we left them, I checked the...
Summary: My dog has developed the bad habit of going "walk-about" as of late. After four good Samaritans called to tell me from the collar tag that they had her, I thought extra steps were needed. I didn't like the idea of the invisible fence type shock collars.
