Trax GPS Tracker for Kids/Pets Unveils Windows Phone 8 App Beth Snyder December 16, 2013 Press Release 4 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 4 Google+ 0 Reddit 0 Pin It Share 0 Email -- 4 Flares × Have you ever misplaced your child or your pet? Even if you find them within short order, it's a heart-stopping, stomach-clenching experience. I used to laugh at people who used those harness/leash combinations on their kids right up until I went to Chicago with my niece's family when her kids were toddlers and we bought some. Because losing track of your kids, even for a few seconds, is an experience I hope none of you ever have. Trax is unveiling its new gadget with app to help give parents (and pet parents) some much-needed peace of mind. Here's what Trax is: One of the smallest GPS locator products on the market, which fits easily into just about any pocket. Or, you can use its clip and pocket sleeve to attach to clothing or your pet's collar. The case is durable and waterproof, to withstand most environmental factors, so no worries about rain, snow, cold or heat. You can preset it for a maximum speed over which it will send an alert (very handy in case someone snatches your loved one and tries to drive away with them), it will send an alert if the device leaves a designated area, and it will even let you know when its battery is getting low so you never have to worry about losing coverage. Its battery lasts 2-4 days on a single charge. Trax is compatible with iOS, Android, and now its new Windows 8 app will be unveiled at CES this year. They'll be providing live demonstrations, and several executives from the company including its founders will be on-hand to discuss any questions you may have. Stop by and check them out while you're at CES, and never worry about losing track of your children or pets again.
