- Submitted By Walter Price on 11/22/2018You can build an entire community with this little device and have your entire neighborhood keep an eye out every time your pet wanders off. Now it’s just the matter of convincing my neighbors to buy this tracker.
- Submitted By Carolyn Stewart on 09/08/2018My cell phone was not compatible with this tracker.
- Submitted By Eric Lopez on 08/12/2018I like how you can attach it to pretty much any collar so I don’t have to buy any extra equipment. I don’t like that you have to download the tracking app since I’m much more used to the commander device.
- Submitted By Roberta Smith on 05/29/2018The accuracy thing is true, it happened to me a couple of times, I didn't get a notification even though my beagle was way outside the range. But I want to say that this does not happen all the time and I like that anyone can use the app for free, it really helps raise awareness about lost pets and helps owners reconnect with their pooches and kitties. Plus, the tag is really useful when we go for a walk, with the virtual leash, I don't even use the real leash anymore.
- Submitted By Alan Considine on 06/27/2019I set off with hope in purchasing this system. Bought a control Module, and two units for my two hunting Labs. Appeared to go well, and learned that the Maps aren't 100% accurate, but they do give you a rough idea where your dog is, and the big furry animal backs up the GPS position, so that helps. Then it started going wrong. Firstly, one of the units came off, in a paddock of high grass. It had been attached correctly on the dogs collar, but somehow had been bounced out. Couldn't find it. Ended up strimming the grass down, hiring a metal detector for a week, but no sign? Findster offered me a 20% discount on a new unit. So I bought it. With the metal detector hire, I'm now £250 in. A few days later, awaiting the new unit, one of the dogs bit through the unit on the other dogs collar. This time, Findster could do nothing. So within 6 weeks of buying the system, I'm £250 down, don't have two units, and have given up. An expensive lesson. Good luck with it, but I wouldn't touch it with a barge pole, until they upgrade/improve it.
- Submitted By Andy on 05/23/2019Having now used the Finster Duo+ for 6 months, I thought I would share my experience of it. Set up was very simple and easy to follow, The units only lasted for 30 min at first, so I let them charge for 24 Hours, and since, then they have worked Brilliantly. I originally was using the App on a Samsung Galaxy A3 phone , and found the the "Radar function " was all over the place and my dogs position was incorrect. This is the function that I wanted most out off the Findster, as having A Parrsons Jack Russell Terrier. I was a little bit Disappointed by this. I recently upgrade to Huawei P30, and now the Radar function works 100%, and works well. Only other problem I have encountered is the Attachment to the Pet module, I found this quite an easy fix by super Glue, It is now permanently attached to the dogs collar. Range Tracking is very good when out in the open, and when My Terrier set off chasing something, it clearly showed him 500m away. This is a very good product, but some slight improvement would make this an excellent product. 8 out of 10.
- Submitted By Alec McCallum on 03/15/2019The Findster Duo has a very short range, nowhere near to what they claim. I've found I loose contact with my dog as soon as he goes over a rise or a short way into the woods. I've tested it out in a straight line of site and found it looses contact after 4-500 feet. The battery life is also rather short, maybe 10-12 hours before needing a recharge. The radar feature is inaccurate. My dog went missing the other day and it showed him nearby in my back yard when he wasn't. I would not recommend purchasing this product.
- Submitted By Rachel on 03/06/2019Worst costumer service ever. I got a faulty guardian piece and would have loved to just get a replacement but, going through costumer service with this one agent was A NIGHTMARE! Do not purchase this product. They are not good on their word. They want me to ship internationally and just believe that they will refund me. She did not get back to me, I still have no idea where to actually ship the broken parts. When she does speak to me, she is rude and again not giving me the information or the prepaid shipping label. Plus the actual device will only give you an approximation of were your pet is, if that. Wish I could give 0 stars.
