      The i-gotu G2S Solar Wireless GNSS Receiver is a revolutionary GPS / GNSS tracking device designed for tracking birds and wild animals both on the ground and in the sky. With its advanced features and affordable price, it presents a unique opportunity for researchers and animal enthusiasts to gather valuable data without breaking the budget.

      Tracking Birds Made Easy:

      With the i-gotu G2S, studying birds has never been more accessible. Unlike other expensive GPS tags on the market, our solution offers a significant advantage with its lower unit cost, making it an ideal choice for researchers with limited budgets. Whether you're focusing on local bird species or conducting research abroad, the i-gotu G2S serves as a lightweight and portable stand-alone device, perfect for tracking and studying birds during breeding seasons or any other period of interest.

      Duo-Mode Bluetooth:

      The G2S has Duo-mode Bluetooth, which can be set as "Standard Mode" and "Long Range Mode." 
      Standard Mode:  the transmission range is up to 100 meters. 
      Long Range Mode: the transmission range extends up to 2 kilometers. (GW1 gateway is required.)

      Overcoming Tracking Challenges:

      Traditional two-way communication tracking solutions rely on cellular networks or satellite internet to transmit location data. However, these methods are often impractical for animal studies. Cellular network coverage is limited to areas accessible by cell towers, excluding remote and wild environments such as deep forests, valleys, or estuaries. Satellite internet, while reliable, is expensive and requires heavy and bulky devices.

      The i-gotu G2S provides a stand-alone Bluetooth long-range tracking solution that eliminates the reliance on cellular networks or satellite internet, making it highly suitable for remote and challenging environments. 

      Unleashing the Power of Data:

      Conventional tracking devices on the market often suffer from limitations in battery life and logging intervals. To conserve power, these devices typically log data every 4-6 hours, providing only a general overview of the animals' movement patterns. The i-gotu G2S, however, offers enhanced flexibility. Users have the option to remove the solar panel for tracking owls at night or replace the batteries when needed. This feature allows for more frequent logging intervals, providing researchers with a wealth of valuable data. By capturing detailed movement patterns, researchers can uncover hidden behaviors and gain deeper insights into animal habits.

      Groundbreaking Tracking by adding a GW1 Gateway:

      Tracking animals on the ground and in the sky has never been easier. Leveraging Bluetooth long-range technology and mobile phone networks, our cost-effective solution wirelessly transmits data to the GW1 data collector. Later, this data can be effortlessly downloaded to a mobile phone and wirelessly transferred to a PC for further analysis. With the i-gotu G2S, research in the wild becomes a breeze, eliminating the need for heavy instruments. Deploy the GW1 at strategic locations such as watering spots or bird nests, and enjoy continuous tracking thanks to the device's solar-powered design.

      Near-Real or Real-Time Tracking:

      Thanks to Bluetooth broadcast capabilities, the i-gotu G2S can send back the last recorded location to the GW1 gateway. By connecting your mobile phone to the GW1, you can effortlessly view and collect data from devices within a 2km range. This near-real or real-time tracking feature provides instant access to valuable information, enabling you to make informed decisions on-the-go.
