Small (3”x1.3”x.8”), lightweight (1.7 oz.), waterproof and packaged with a carabiner clip and pouch, the Garmin GTU 10 is easy to attach to a backpack, dog collar or anything else you want to track. Once you register your Garmin GTU 10 GPS locator, the tracking service is enabled. Tracking data is delivered across AT&T’s wireless network. When you’re on your computer, Garmin’s Tracking website helps you manage your Garmin GTU 10 and map its location. For even more convenience when you’re on the go, you can download the Garmin Tracker software application for your mobile device to see the location of Garmin GTU 10 and how it relates to your current location. For another level of connectivity, compatible Garmin nüLink devices can automatically route to the Garmin GTU 10’s location with turn-by-turn directions.

Garmin GTU 10 owners can create up to 10 geofences (virtual boundaries) for your GPS device so that when it enters or exits a geofenced area, Garmin can send an email or text message notification to you or authorized friends and family members. It’s also easy to view a track history of where your Garmin GTU 10 has been. And because there are numerous ways to use the Garmin GTU 10, it’s easy to customize battery settings for optimal performance. The built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery can last up to four weeks between charges, and low battery / powered off notifications through the tracking service let you know when it’s time to recharge or when the device has been turned off.
