Summary: We bought this along with a year's service hoping to use it with our children. Our first real trial was a camping trip in which we pinned the locator inside a jacket. No tracks at all. It was well within all the Tampa metro cell footprints, and was clearly on outdoors for over 12 hours.
Summary: I tried to activate this device multiple times without any luck in the area I live. I purchased the 3 month initial service discount from zoombak. I was busy, and figured I would discontinue the service when I had more time, since the device doesn't work for me. Shame on me.
Summary: This device pretty much lives up to its claims. The idea is excellent. I think this is an excellent idea for geo-fencing. Keep it with your child and you can be notified via text or email if they wander outside of a user selected radius (minimum 200yds.
Summary: There were several times I took my dog outside her zone and I wouldn't get a notification. I would have to call and after about an hour of working with them...and staying outside the zone, they would finally get it working.
Summary: When I put the device on my dash and drove around it seemed to work pretty good, although I was getting a few "unable to locate" messages on the Zoombak server. When I installed the device behind the glove box as instructed it worked as long as the vehicle was sitting idle.
Summary: As a Private Investigator just opening my own business I needed a GPS for a surveillance case. Most are in the $300.00- $1000.00 range. So when I came across the ZoomBak for $99.00 I looked into it more closely. Based on the description from their website, the price and my needs, it was a good buy.
Summary: I've had my Zoombak for about 7 months now, and I find that it works fairly well, as long as it's not a really rainy day. The biggest problem that I have with it is that when my teens are out in the evening and I want to keep track of them, I have to stay near my computer so that I can reset the...
If You Ever Cancel Service, You Can Never Renew, Device Becomes Junk!

Summary: Yes, just as the title says....We bought two of these, I called to suspend the service for a few months, (We only need them for a Utah winter business) and just before I paid the INSANE $100.00 cancellation fee the rep informed me that as soon as I do this the devices WILL BECOME COMPLETELY...
Summary: This device has worked very dependable. Rarely has it notified much later after the fact that my vehicle was out of its home area. I have been using the device for quite a while now and I am very saitisfied with the locator service.
Summary: I have been using 3 Zoombak GPS units for a year and a half. I have used several mGPS in the past and Zoombak is are the most reasonably priced and accurate GPS on the market. I have had no issues with the units and use them on regualr basis. The ability to set up zones is really cool and useful.
