GTU 10 is 3”x1.3”x.8” (7.6x3.3x2cm), weight 1.7 oz. (48g) and is waterproof. It is packaged with a carabiner clip and pouch. 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 the user know when it’s time to recharge or when the device has been turned off. Once the device is registered at my.Garmin.com, the tracking service is enabled. Tracking data is delivered across AT&T’s wireless network.
The location of the device can be monitored from Garmin’s website, mobile apps as well as compatible Garmin nüLink devices that can automatically route to the GTU 10’s location with turn-by-turn directions. GTU 10 owners can create up to 10 geofences (virtual boundaries) for their device so that when it enters or exits a geofenced area, Garmin can send an email or text message notification.
In comparison Zoombak annual plan costs $12.99 per month after purchasing the device that sells at $99. No need to say that this new Garmin device will reshuffle the cards on the emerging personal tracking market.
