Think of it as a user-friendly LoJack for just about anything that could possible get up and walk away (or get stolen). Zoombak is a GPS tracker that keeps tabs on the location of your dog, cat, car, or wayward teenager upset over being grounded for text message overages. The Zoombak’s location can be monitored through an online map, giving you almost real-time updates on the whereabouts of your most prized possessions and loved ones.
Today, Zoombak has expanded its feature set with the Mobile Location Request. By sending an SMS text message containing the word “FIND” to 96225, you can get mobile updates on the location of the Zoombak via a text message reply. The Mobile Location Request service allows the user to track down the location of the Zoombak while on the road, without access to a computer or the internet.
The Car & Family version of Zoombak costs $249.99, and both the Dog Locator and Universal Locator cost $199.99. Zoombak requires a monthly service fee ranging from $9.99 to $34.89 for the peace of mind that comes with knowing exactly where your stuff is.
