    Default GPS Tracker for Tweakers

    Hello all,
    i wasnt sure where to post this but was wondering if anybody found a sort of gps tracker or device that could be concealed in tools, wheelers, snogo, outboards, guns , etc that works in Alaska. It might make for a fun game of “tweak and seek” when your things come up missing.
    BTW, I tried a Dewalt mobilock tracker (pretty large item)that had high reviews in lower 48 but wouldn’t work in AK.
    thanks!

    Foundots of trackers that use cell signals but nothing reasonably priced for satellite tracking. Either batteries only lasted weeks, cost to much or slow update rates. Most sat trackers for equipment update location once a day. No point if the thieves have that big of a head start. Have also been told the thieves look for trackers and cut them off.

    These may be just the trick. Don't need cell service and are compact.

    That works off a base station you keep in your pocket and has at best 3 mile range from base unit. Also only has 7 day battery life.
