Long Range Mode: the transmission range extends up to 2 kilometers. (GW1 gateway is required.)

Overcoming Tracking Challenges:

Traditional animal tracking methods face significant challenges when it comes to remote and wild environments. Reliance on cellular networks or satellite internet for location data transmission often proves impractical due to limited coverage and high costs. However, our standalone tracking solution overcomes these obstacles, making it highly suitable for challenging terrains. Say goodbye to dependence on cellular networks or satellite internet and embrace the freedom to explore even the most remote areas.

Unleashing the Power of Data:

While conventional tracking devices suffer from limited battery life and long logging intervals, the i-gotu G6S offers unparalleled flexibility. With the option to remove the solar panel for nighttime tracking or replace the batteries as needed, you can achieve more frequent logging intervals. This feature provides researchers with a wealth of valuable data, enabling them to uncover hidden behaviors and gain deeper insights into animal habits.

Groundbreaking Tracking by adding a GW1 Gateway:

Tracking animals 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. You can effortlessly download this data to your mobile phone and wirelessly transfer it to a PC for further analysis. Whether you're studying terrestrial creatures or avian species, the i-gotu G6S simplifies research in the wild, making heavy instruments a thing of the past. Deploy the GW1 at strategic locations such as watering spots or bird nests and enjoy uninterrupted tracking thanks to its solar-powered design.

Near-Real or Real-Time Tracking:

With Bluetooth broadcast capabilities, the i-gotu G6S can even send back the last recorded location to the GW1 gateway. By connecting your mobile phone to the GW1, you gain instant access to near-real or real-time tracking data from devices within a 2 km range. This feature empowers you to make informed decisions on-the-go, providing valuable insights and facilitating efficient monitoring of your tracked subjects.
