By Monica Gleberman February 14, 2013

Stick-N-Find Technologies has developed an ultra-small Bluetooth GPS locator called BluTracker. This device was designed to give people Bluetooth capabilities with a range of more than 2,500 feet. Now, only a few days before the company holds its press conference, Stick-N-Find announced the device has been remodeled to include location logging and more specific tracking details.

“We are very excited about the BluTracker, it gives users that extra bit of functionality that is needed for long-range tracking, great in the home and for any business,” said Jimmy Buchheim, founder of Stick-N-Find Technologies.

Prior to the update, the BluTracker offered consumers a multitude of features including a fully customizable RF design and antenna, long-range tracking, motion detection, extended battery life, and concealable and durable waterproof design.

To enhance these features, the company looked at what could be improved upon. Now, the device will work as far as half a mile away giving it incredible range. In addition, users can view a log of locations by day, week, or month – and take advantaged of extra battery support.

“We wanted to make sure that we are making a fully functional device that makes BluTracker an invaluable asset to any home or business. We have had great support for our campaigns; we want to provide new features that will make the Stick-N-Find Pro an affordable and complete device.”

The devices currently on the market use Bluetooth 4.0, weigh around 0.57 ounces, and use GPS Sirf IV Engine. The device is priced by quantity. One BluTracker retails for around $90.00. Businesses interested in purchasing 50 or more devices can expect to pay around $4,300 for the set.

Unlike other similar products, there are no monthly fees associated with the tracker and users can even deploy a BluTracker app that allows users to access the logging and tracking details on the go without having to pay any additional fees.

Stick-N-Find Technologies will discuss the details on the new release at its official press conference on February 26 at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. The conference will begin at 9:15 a.m. and will be held at the North Entrance Room 5.
