About this project
Our mission is to make finding missing loved ones and valuables easy, fast & painless. While at the same time changing the fate of the ones that go lost or get stolen.
Tracker Now is the smallest GPS tracking device that acts as a bridge between technology and personal items. Always know belongings are secure, loved ones are safe, and pets are where they are supposed to be!
The Tracker Now device is the first of its kind to integrate BLE, GPS, GSM, and Wifi. Leveraging all of these technologies ensures Worldwide Tracking. Putting the control of finding lost items at your fingertips no matter where they may be at anytime
Through the use of BLE, GPS, GSM, and Wifi for Global Worldwide Tracking, Tracker Now is just a ping away from making sure nothing gets lost again.
This function is especially useful for children or pets. Example: A user can set parameters by drawing a fence around his or her property through the use off Tracker Now app. If tracked child or pet leaves the house or yard user is notified. Fences can be drawn anywhere worldwide. The applications are endless.
The embedded speaker makes it easier to find a tracked item. The chirping will lead you directly to it
Always know where your belongings are while vacationing or working away from home.
*Language barrier? speaking or reading? No problem, you will precisely know where a tracked item is if it goes missing, even in unfamiliar surroundings.
*On the other hand while leaving your world behind it is beneficial to be able to receive notifications if important possessions aren't where they are supposed to be. Or if you just want to check in on them.
Are you a business? Tracker Now supports business needs for both small and large sized companies. Tracker Now was built based on the experience of losing very important personal and business documents. We understand the urgency of real time tracking and asset awareness. That is why we we want to team up with large and small businesses to cater to demands, deadlines and asset tracking.
What Makes Tracker Now Different?
The current consumer tracking devices on the market use a BLE (Bluetooth low energy) module that doesn't cover more than 150 feet. Therefore, in case of theft, your items would be lost forever. However, with the implementation of an advanced GPS and BLE module, Tracker Now gives you the ability to track your belongings across the entire globe assuring you never lose anything again.
Why nothing compares to Tracker Now
We have a lot of things planned for the future. We'd love to be able to raise enough money to include the features below. Our goal is to be able to create the greatest possible product, so reaching these stretch goals would allow us to add some amazing features that are unseen on the market today.

Here is our Story!
A 35 year old Entrepreneur and Technology enthusiast from Orange County, California. Joe holds an M.B.A. from Texas A&M University - Commerce and has been an adjunct Professor for many Colleges and Universities sharing his passion for Entrepreneurship, Business, and Marketing. Joe likes to find ways that technology can be integrated into our everyday lives and assist us with things that technology can help solve many problems by simply strategically thinking outside the box.
What is the cost after initial purchase if any?
Your Tracker Now will come with a set of 10 free Worldwide Pings. After that depending on how often you need to ping your Tracker Now`s location you will be able to purchase in app or through web packages of 100, 50 , 5, or a single find, for less then a $1.00 per ping. No contracts! No bills! If you are not using it you will not be charged for anything and have full features of the BLE, WiFi/Hotspot features and functions.
What is the current state of your battery life?
If you are to send a global ping to our units 24 times a day for 6 months straight you would need to recharge the battery for another 6 months cycle. That`s right. If you lost your keys on the hour every hour every day for 8 months straight it would take to drain our battery. The average use we say will be 1 year before needing another 8 hour charge to last another year per Tracker Now Device.
How is there no monthly fee?
Technology and companies have now come together to offer cutting edge technology with M2M embedded sims that allow for global coverage switching from carrier to carrier to band and frequency no matter where you are in the world. Basically you have full roaming rights Worldwide without the extra bill. An example is if you are in a T-Mobile area that uses GSM Technology you will receive the gsm service through their towers yet if you move to another state you may end up on a Verizon tower which uses CDMA and will connect to the nearest tower. Same goes if you travel overseas, Tracker Now`s embedded GSM will automatically pick up any signal possible not matter what frequency or carrier area you are in giving you the peace of mind Globally!

Our current board is 2.3" by 2" but our final board should be half the size.
USB (Unless we unlock our wireless charging Stretch Goal)
Yes, the charger is smart, it will stop charging when the battery is full and will only activate the again when the battery charge is below 5% (this threshold is user configurable)
Under normal conditions, the smart charger approach should avoid this, because the device battery is not under constant charge
How do I install this in my fleet of cars? (I don't want an employee knowing its there and I'm not going to keep going in and out of there vehicle to charge it?
See my previous answer regarding charging. Also, the device dimensions make it easy to conceal.
Yes we are adding a special 2 pack that will be limited quantity available. Thank You
