First Look: Garmin GTU 10 GPS tracking device

1:57 /

Keep track of the GPS location of your valuables over the Internet or with an app using Garmin's new GTU 10.

Have you got something you'd like to keep track of? Maybe a backpack that you don't wanna be stolen or a pet or maybe even a small child. If you want a way to keep track of your things that are important to you, you might wanna take a look at a GPS locator. Today, we're taking a look at the Garmin GTU 10. I'm Antuan Goodwin with CNET.com. Let's take a quick look at this guy. Now, the GTU 10 is actually a very small device. There's not much going on here. The small size is designed so that it can be put into a small case or maybe even tossed into a backpack or something like that. After pairing it with the Garmin service using a connected computer, you'll actually be able to go online at any time and see where the GTU 10 is, using an internal GPS antenna. As long as it's within range of a cellular connection, it will be able to report wherever it is. And you can set the update intervals to anywhere between real time and on-demand and that's gonna alter your battery life so you'll have anywhere between a day of use with very frequent updates to as much as about a week of use if you are only updating on-demand when you wanna look for something. You can also use Garmin's Tracker app for your smartphone for getting information about the device's location, for changing the update interval, and basically just kinda keeping track of where your things are. Overall, the GTU 10 does offer users a very easy way between their computer and smartphone to keep track of any sort of device that you decide that you wanna connect it to. There's a lot of flexibility in how accurate that positioning is, but we did find that in very densely populated areas like downtown San Francisco where there are a lot of tall buildings, the accuracy did tend to suffer a little bit. For more information about this little guy, check out the full review over on CNET.com. I'm Antuan Goodwin, this has been the Garmin GTU 10 GPS Locator.
