Bike industry marketing and PR man David Evans is in the national press today with a creation of his - the Gpaws 'CatNav' GPS.
The lightweight (30g) device attaches to either a cat or dog collar and uses a multi-channel GPS receiver to record the adventures of your pet. The unit works alongside a free-to-use website, g-paws.com. The site incorporates free mapping to enable users to keep records of their pets’ movements and see other owner’s tracklogs on a social network platform. Battery life on a single charge is around eight to ten hours.
The G-paws unit connects to a computer via a mini USB cable (supplied) for both charging and data transfer.
Accapi will have the product available from May, priced at £50, ready for a Spring Summer 2013 launch. The unit will come with three collar attachments giving it a secure and robust fixing to small cat collars, dog collars and even oversized collars.
