The Family Locator is a really useful app. I installed it to keep track of my son when he’s out and about, and I’m impressed with the accuracy of the data.

This is great for locating my husband! I installed the GPS Tracker on my kids’ phones, but also asked my husband to install it on his. Now, I can see where my family members are, with only slight inaccuracies when they’re travelling by train.

A reassuring way to locate family. I installed the GPS Tracker mobile phone app on iPhone and Android devices, and I can locate family online. It was easy to install, too.

Frequently Asked Questions

Send an email to [email protected] if you can't find an answer to your question here.

Can I view a location in real-time

Our Family Locator App and web site allows you to ping phones for a real-time location, but due to recent phone software updates, a lot of devices now have complex battery savers which disable background apps.  All our solutions are based on regular (e.g. 15 minute) updates that provide a more consistent history of where people are and have been.  Real-time updates works for 80% of devices.

What happens when the device is outside the network?

If you’re using one of our mobile apps, and the user doesn’t have network coverage (e.g. internet), we store the location updates on their phone and then resend when the re-enter a location.   

Our LoRa® devices only work where there’s LoRaWAN network coverage.  That said, you’ll find coverage across a number of cities in the UK, USA and abroad.  We also sell Gateways and aerials providing localised coverage up to 15km (30km on a good day).

Do you charge for the Family Locator

Our Family Locator and GPS Trackers are free to download and install.   It’s free to setup and track up to 2 devices.

You’ll need a subscription plan to add additional devices.  You can cancel the plans at any time.

Which platfrom is Family Locator available on

Currently Android, but an updated version is in development for Android and the IoS platform.
