GTU10 not a great daily pet containment device.

Chris Croce, Amazon
5 July 2013
  • Summary: Purchased this strictly for pet use, specifically to make sure she stayed in my 13 acre property grounds. It works great unless the pet goes under a big tree, under a porch, in her doghouse etc.

Product didn't work for my dog.

21 May 2011
  • Summary: I was going to use it to track my dog when off-leash on dog walks. I tested it several times. One time it couldn't find him at all. Another time, it gave the vicinity, but he had already moved somewhere else.

Battery life is a poor phrase

Niels Meersschaert, Amazon
20 May 2011
  • Summary: I have a Garmin Zumo for my motorcycle, so I chose the GTU-10 over the Spot tracker. I got the GTU-10 for 2 reasons. One was to keep on our dog, so we know where she is. The second was to take with me on motorcycle rides, so my wife could follow my trip.

Good product poor Network Service

Michael Tracy, Amazon
20 May 2011
  • Summary: I had the GTU 10 for about 2 weeks now. For about the last week, I was receiving NO notifications (low battery, unit powered off, enter/exit geofence, etc..). I just called Garmin tech support and and they told me the 'notification server' has been down for about a week and no real ETA.

Poor communication & location errors

Brian S. in New Orleans, Amazon
20 May 2011
  • Summary: This unit has been a disappointment from the beginning. I have tested it in two of our vehicles. Communication with the device is spotty - I am often told it is "asleep" when I know that it is not.

Poor Battery Life

Carlos S, Amazon
11 March 2011
  • Summary: I would give this 5 stars for design and BUT the battery life is so poor that all the good ideas are wasted. I charged it all night before the first test and set it to 'Heavy'. It lasted about an hour. OK that's asking it to do a lot so I charged it overnight again and set it to 'Balanced'.

ACHTUNG GEHT NUR BIS 12/2015

Katamaran18, Amazon
13 November 2013
  • Summary: Habe mir den Tracker als quasi eine "Diebstahlssicherung" für den PKW gekauft. Am Wohnort einen Geofencebereich eingestellt. Funktioniert so halbwegs. Das heißt wenn mich mit dem Pkw ich aus diesem Bereich entferne oder das Auto gestohlen wird kommt eine E-Mail Heute gegen 07:29:43 MEZ hat sich das...

Attenzione ai costi aggiuntivi!!!

diego, amazon.it
24 June 2013
  • Summary: Buon prodotto ma impreciso nella localizzazione. Dopo un anno diventa inutilizzabile se non si sottoscrive l'abbonamento standard, i costi raddoppiano se si aggiunge l'abbonamento delux per il rilevamento continuo. Durata batteria non eccezionale.

mangelhaft bis ungenügend

Duke_Dresari, Amazon
8 August 2011
  • Summary: das sind die Schulnoten die es dafür gibt. Zunächst kann das Gerät nur über Garmin ... und dann ab dem 2ten Jahr auch nur kostenpflichtig geortet werden. Wenn das Gerät Trackingpunkte aufzeichnen soll kostet des ganze Spaß sofort fast 5 Euro pro Monat und dies funktioniert ebenfalls nur über eine...

Schwerfällig und enttäuschend

U. Schneider, Amazon
2 July 2011
  • Summary: Habe den Garmin GTU 10 zur Überwachung meines "Runaway"-Hundes angeschafft. Leider hält das Gerät nicht was versprochen wird. Insbesondere die Akkulaufzeit ist wesentlich kürzer als angegeben. Auch bei der Einstellung mit den seltensten Meldungen muss alle 2-3 Tage wieder aufgeladen werden.
