“Hi, we purchased a Stray tracker for our Dad who has dementia, in early November. We have been really pleased with the reassurance it gives us as he still lives at home independently but visits my mum daily in the local care home she is a resident in so we are able to check he has arrived safely and has been dropped home at night by his taxi.” Noreen, January ’18
“Thanks again for your wonderful product and your incredible service. I am completely satisfied and thoroughly impressed!” Mr Varnum, US, March ’17
“I have been blessed to be able to make use one of your trackers for about a week and a half now, and requested this one that you just shipped out as a replacement. I am incredibly pleased with your product. Finally, a product that perfectly meets my needs has been found! This is the best device that we have ever found that works for our very unique situation.” Matthew, Feb ’17
“Just to say that this unit has been working really well, we now have to use it often and I also often talk to him through it, which is great too.” Lindsey, Feb ’17
“We were very pleased to receive the tracker so quickly, especially as we had a weekend break booked for Chessington” Anne Marie, April ’17
“Can’t thank you enough for the attention you have given to my problem – it’s a weight off my mind. We are just back from Cyprus and the tracker unit worked fabulously. The charging cradle was in full use for the full week and the unit sat securely while charging overnight resulting in a full charge each day. My confidence is restored and my partner was pleased with the freedom it gave him to move about the hotel and grounds (and I was always able yo check he was within a controlled area). Can’t thank you enough” Karen, Oct ’16
“The tracker came almost instantly, the instruction booklet gave full and straightforward details and the tracker has proved its worth from day one. And now, thanks to your quick and helpful response I no longer have that ‘niggle’- it’s just as it says- you really are there to help! Full marks all round! Thank you!” Barbara, Sept ’16

The customer service and aftercare with this company is excellent. I have had a couple of queries & their on line service response is quick and extremely helpful. Many thanks would highly recommend” Susan, Aug ’15
“The GPS Tracker is doing a great job, we are able to locate Dad when he wanders due to his dementia which has helped us so much and ensured his safety.” Brian
“Am very happy with it, and much more simple to use than I thought” Emma, July ’15
“We have received the tracker and set it up successfully. Your instructions are very clear thank you. It is going to be a real help as we have a family member with early Alzheimer’s and he tends to go off on wanders and although currently finds his way home, he doesn’t know in advance where he is going as he just waits for a train and gets on it, so he could be anywhere from chester to Southport or Preston! I have sent my husband out with it to test it so we know what we are doing! It has been good fun! Or maybe I am just sad!! It is a fantastic bit of kit and we are so pleased.” Janine, July ’15
Our Personal GPS Trackers are incredibly useful
If you can relate to this then you can probably also relate to the sheer panic, hassle and constant worry that such situations bring.
The police are often called to help in the search, there’s the usual emotional complexities (and conflicts!) of families, and of course the daily demands of caring.
Our Personal GPS Trackers for dementia and Alzheimer’s won’t solve everything – but they’ll certainly bring some much needed peace of mind by helping with the problem of wandering. You can get an instant location whenever you need one, on your mobile phone or by logging into a website on a computer. The GPS Trackers are packed with great functions like SOS buttons which send instant location text alerts (and call the carers), and alerts if the person wanders too far (so you can know where there are – and also when they wander). You can configure everything by text and be fully in control of what it does – there is no outside reliance on call centers.
Your choice of GPS Tracker will depend on the person you are wanting to track.
Other family members may want to use the GPS Tracker, so you might need to give them access. This is easy to do. The Stray Star personal GPS Tracker allows anyone to make a location request via text. Three phone numbers can also be notified of alerts or receive SOS alert texts if the SOS button is pressed. The GPS Watch Tracker will allow 4 people to receive SOS alerts, and again anyone can text it for a location request.
The GPS Trackers are easy to use! You just need to know the text message command to send to get an instant location reply. Once you’ve used the Tracker a couple of times you’ll see how easy it is!
All of the other functionality is thoroughly explained (e.g. setting up online tracking if you want it, geofence alerts, two way calling, hidden mic listening) in the manual, so you can use those functions as and when you wish. We also have good troubleshooting guides for each tracker, with tips and easy fixes for any common misunderstandings.
Many of our customers aren’t particularly computer savvy, they are just regular decent folk looking for a solution to a difficult problem. When caring for someone with dementia, Alzheimer’s, autism or with any risk of wandering, there are already plenty of emotional stresses and concerns. We’ve tried to make things as simple as possible by including free SIM cards with our GPS trackers, and step by step guides to follow so that there’s no room for confusion. We’ve also outlined the “essentials” in the manuals for people who just want to get up and running asap. But if ever you do get stuck, you can always get in touch and we’ll help out.
More Feedback for our GPS Trackers
All of the feedback you see throughout the site is real and verifiable. Very rarely have we asked a customer to give a testimonial, and when we have its only because they’ve told us something interesting that we wanted to share. We always appreciate hearing your stories and feedback.

Our GPS Trackers for kids have SOS buttons, two-way calling and microphone surveillance. They can be tracked online, or via a location request text. The Stray Star GPS Tracker has the excellent added function of automatically answering phone calls made to it. This means that you can call your child’s GPS Tracker, talk to them through the speaker, and listen through the microphone. For parents who may travel and want to say good night to their children, this is perfect!
Our Personal GPS Trackers for travelers and hiking have SOS buttons, two-way calling, and can be tracked online or via a text request. So your loved ones can keep track of you. Note – requires a GSM mobile signal, so choose a SIM with the best coverage for where you will be traveling/hiking. If you’re traveling abroad, then you’ll need to ensure the SIM has international roaming. The ones we provide for free with the tracker actually have excellent international rates.
The below trackers also have onboard microphones which can be remotely listened into discretely. Geo-fencing also alerts you if the GPS Tracker has moved out of a certain area. Our GPS Trackers give accurate locations via text message, or online. The GPS Trackers can be called, and then answered automatically, allowing you to listen through the microphone. They are discrete, they don’t make any beeps or call sounds, and are small enough to be easily hidden.
Or find out more first…
There are no tie-in contracts, minimum use restrictions, hidden fees or ongoing subscriptions at all - you just pay for your own texts (5p each) and/or data (5p per megabyte, only if online tracking used) that you use and no more!
We’re based in the UK, but our GPS Trackers work anywhere in the world. We have customers in France, USA, India, New Zealand, Canada – the GPS Trackers are quad-band meaning that they will get a mobile signal in all major continents. Just make sure you have a SIM card for your own country.

When you buy a GPS tracker from us, not only do you get a clear, detailed manual to help you set it up, but we’re here to help if you get stuck. You’ll find plenty of information here to understand the benefits of GPS Trackers, and how to choose which one is best for your needs.
The Personal GPS Tracker is worn/carried by someone
Our Personal GPS trackers are small enough to be carried in a pocket, car, glovebox, bag, or worn as a Watch. They are commonly used bycautious parents caring for their children, employees, cars, vulnerable adults, Alzheimer’s patients and sufferers of dementia.
You can then request the location
The GPS Tracker has its own phone number, just like a mini mobile phone (they use mobile phone SIM cards). From your own mobile phone, you send the GPS tracker a text message and receive the location back by reply text. The link can be clicked on to immediately show the location on Google Maps. This is completely discrete. You can also see the GPS Tracker’s whereabouts online if you wish.
They work anywhere in the world!
Our GPS trackers are quad-band – which means you can use them anywhere in the world. You just need a SIM card for your country. The only ongoing costs are the texts from the GPS tracker, and any call costs (if you use 2-way calling from the GPS tracker).
The uses for GPS Trackers are endless…
For example, you can be notified if someone (or your car) strays a certain distance, or listen in to the surroundings of the GPS Tracker via the onboard mic. They also have SOS “panic” buttons.
We tell you all you need to know!
Our customer service is excellent – we help out whenever possible, and enjoy getting great feedback. We sell user-friendly GPS trackers with detailed manuals. We also have a beginner’s guide if you need a walk-through in layman’s terms, a Frequently Asked Questions page, and a quick tutorial video.
You can text the personal GPS tracker to instantly receive the GPS co-ordinates back. This can include a link to Google Maps, so you can instantly see the location on a map on a mobile phone. If not, then just type the coordinates into the Google Maps website on a computer to see the location. See the example here.
When pressed on the personal GPS tracker by the wearer, the tracker sends an “SOS” alert text and the location co-ordinates to a designated mobile phone number. It will also call the number – to connect a 2-way phone call. An important safety feature.
Receive an Alert if the GPS tracker strays too far
When the GPS tracker goes out of a certain range, it will send an alert text to a designated mobile number. This is called “geo-fencing” – see our tutorial video to see how it works.
Listen in discretely via the onboard microphone
With a text command, the personal GPS tracker can automatically call back the specified mobile and allow you to secretly listen via the inbuilt microphone. You can then listen in on the surroundings.
An inbuilt microphone and speaker allows the wearer of the personal GPS tracker to call pre-set mobile numbers. For the tracker wearer, this is a simple push of the button. In this way, they are like mini mobile phones.
Our GPS Trackers are enabled for online live tracking via a website. With a data enabled SIM, the personal GPS trackers can send continuous GPS co-ordinates to a website to see the location move in real-time.
These functions are all easily set up by programming the personal GPS tracker with specified text commands. An an example, texting “666000” to the tracker will automatically trigger a reply text with the location coordinates.
Our Stray Star GPS Tracker is our most popular GPS Tracking Device and is a great device for everyone – its tiny yet has a 7 day battery life.
