iTraq announces the newest geolocation device available to consumers that allows for tracking anywhere there is cellular service has hit Indiegogo. The project launched on the global crowdfunding platform on Wednesday (February 18th) and immediately gained funding momentum, raising over $40,000 in less than two days.
iTraq determines its position and location in the world using cellular towers, no longer holding tracking capabilities to the confines of Bluetooth signal. It is unique because it allows consumers to track their valuables regardless of distance. Previous devices use Bluetooth signals to track devices, which limits the range available for tracking to approximately 100 ft.
iTraq determines location using cellular towers and can be located virtually anywhere in the world. This allows users to track a range of valuables: bicycles, cars, boats, packages and luggage. Even the parents of traveling children can rest assured, knowing their child’s location as long as they’re carrying iTraq.
Founder of iTraq, Roman Isakov stated, “iTraq is perfect for those who want peace of mind in knowing their valuables are safely in their designated locations. We’re excited for the launch of our Indiegogo campaign, which allows us to bring this valuable technology to the consumer market for the first time.”
iTraq has teamed up with GeoTraq (OTC: GTRQ) to bring this technology to consumers. GeoTraq’s Cell-ID technology is ideal for asset and personal tracking devices, like iTraq. The technology can operate for many years on a single battery at extremely low cost, and has longer range than other technology currently used for location-based activities.
In addition to global tracking through GeoTraq, iTraq offers features such as a corresponding mobile app and Guard Mode. The corresponding mobile app allows users to customize status updates, log a map history of iTraq locations with time stamp, and manage multiple iTraq devices and locations. The app’s Guard Mode lets users assign designated areas for iTraq devices, so if the tag leaves its designated zone, users are immediately notified.
iTraq is available now for preorder through Indiegogo for an early bird price of $39 in the first 48 hours and a regular price of $49. The project is set to close on April 4th.
