NEW YORK (PRWEB) June 25, 2008
Small enough to be placed in a car, backpack, briefcase or attached to a bicycle or a dog’s collar, Zoombak Advanced GPS locators combine the coverage of cellular networks and the power of satellites to provide consumers with the most accurate, real-time location information available. As the only A-GPS locator technology available nationwide at leading consumer electronics, pet and automotive retailers, Zoombak enables consumers to easily monitor and stay connected to many of their most precious possessions.
“People today are seeking new ways to effectively balance the demands of their busy lifestyles with their family responsibilities,” said Zoombak’s CEO Simon Buckingham. “With Zoombak, consumers now have a powerful and easy-to-use tool that can help them find peace of mind by knowing that they can be connected to many different valued possessions, including their cars, and therefore the loved ones in them, even when they are out of sight.”
With Zoombak’s secure, interactive website, users set up custom safety zones around virtually any location including homes, parks, malls and schools. Once activated, if the device crosses a virtual boundary, the owner will receive a text message or email promptly alerting them to the location of the device. Owners can also locate their device by logging into Zoombak.com, sending a text message from their mobile phone (coming soon) or contacting Zoombak’s live 24×7 customer care location support. Zoombak’s advanced A-GPS locators start at $ 199 plus a low cost monthly service plan and are available at Circuit City, PetSmart, J&R, Amazon.com and Bestbuy.com.
