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. The half Ironman takes 4-5 hours to complete and the full takes 9-10 hours. Obviously a long time in either case to watch and wonder where he was and when I might see him.
This delivered the quality of Garmin that you would expect

Summary: It performed as described, and had a quality build that goes with the Garmin name. It has worked consistenly for me, I have two of them. One to track my vehicle, it's attached to my 12V adapter (sold seperately). It holds enough battery (on the conservative mode) to go between charging (when the car is started). The other is on our golden retriever. It goes 3-4 weeks before it needs a charge.. fortunately the golden has never run away, fortunatley..
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. It also texts and emails me when she is safe inside a "Geo Fence" that I have entered on the units link on the Garmin website. Love it!
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 GPS and found them very quickly.
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. I wanted something that would gave me quick warning about the her attempting a walk-about. Surprisingly there is not much to choose from. I researched them all.
Summary: We have had a problem with someone stealing things from our company. We leave items spread out over the state and there is no way to keep eyes on everything. From the reviews out there, I couldn't tell which gps tracker was the best, so I purchased three of the most popular. We spent several days setting up geo fences and driving around the state with all of them. As long as the Garmin tracker stays within the geo fence, the battery lasts for a week.
Summary: I bought 2 of these to help keep track of my 80yo Mom who has memory issues and dementia. She still lives on her own but occasionally wanders off to the bank or store too far away. I slip 1 into her purse liner and it "pings" me when the GPS unit leaves the set GEO fence which is her neighborhood. Battery life is good since it sleeps while inside the GEO fence. I change out GPS units each week with the fresh battery one. Peace of mind.... worth every penny!
5 Stars when used the way I use it. Teen tracking.

Summary: I used this device to track my teen car. I did a fair amount of research before I bought it and realized a couple of things I would need to accept in order to get full use out of this device for my purposes: a) I would connect the device to the car battery using a car fuse splitter and cable that does not come with the device and b) the monthly fee had to be reasonable.

Satisfied customer., Amazon

Summary: I purchased the GTU 10 from Amazon about two weeks ago and it has performed as advertized. I purchased this device to track one of my company vehicles and because of it's capabilities, I give it five stars. I was able to retrieve the location of the device using either my laptop with the Garmin web site or the GTU 10 tracking app for my Ipad every time I requested information.
