Product Description

SnapperGPS tags are small and lightweight which makes them perfect for wildlife tracking. One tag can log data for over 10,000 locations in one deployment and last for over a year on a small 40 mAh battery. That means that it could attempt a location fix once every minute for one week or once every hour for one year. This tag also features 3 GPIO pins that you can use to connect your own sensors and triggers. 

To configure your SnapperGPS tag simply connect it to your computer or phone and go to https://snappergps.info. Once your deployment is over, just reconnect the tag and use the same web app to upload the data. The cloud-based processing service will then notify you once the location data is ready to download. There is no need to install drivers or additional software.

SnapperGPS tags run on LiPo batteries which you can connect with a JST-PH connector. Make sure you get one that has a protection circuit and that the JST-PH connector has the correct polarity. You will also need a USB-C cable to connect the tag to your computer or phone.

Note that SnapperGPS is a prototype research tool, and is not a commercial product. As such, it comes with no warranty or guarantee that it is fit for purpose.
