Almost as tiny as a US Quarter and not much thicker than 4 stacked together, Retrievor brings you all of the functionality a true end to end GPS solution should offer!

“Having teamed up with some of the best brains in the business and developed partnerships with cutting edge service providers, we bring you the smallest ever, end to end GPS solution in the world. Period! We’ve packed some amazing technology into our little Retrievor, which combined with our free Android, iPhone & Web Apps, will allow you to track almost anything, anywhere in the world.

 

What’s Inside Retrievor?

 

By selecting and partnering with the very best manufacturers of micro technology, we are able to make Retrievor really tiny. Measuring only 28 mm (1.10″) in diameter and 10 mm (0.39″) thick means you can use Retrievor to track almost anything.

Powered by record breaking technology which allows us to keep things really, really small. Our GPS unit is the industry’s smallest, fully integrated module with on-board antenna. Featuring  advanced miniature packaging technology and an ultra small footprint too!

 Key facts

 

The new technology inside Retrievor is the industry’s smallest, fully integrated GPS module with on‐board antenna.This module is complete SiP (System‐in‐Package) featuring advanced miniature packaging technology and an ultra small footprint.

 

The integration of a SiRFstarIV™ GPS processor enables the unit to operate in challenging GPS environments, such as indoor tracking or when the end-user is on the move. This high level of GPS performance is achieved by using innovative GPS firmware which can detect changes in context, temperature, and satellite signals, and opportunistically update its internal parameters which enables near-continuous navigation.

 

The revolutionary SiRFstarIV™ architecture is optimized for how people really use location‐aware products: often indoors with periods of unobstructed sky view when moving from place to place.

Innovative GPS firmware can detect changes in context, temperature, and satellite signals to achieve a state of near continuous navigation availability by maintaining and opportunistically updating its internal parameters while consuming mere microwatts of battery power.” – indiegogo.com
