Ian, a man named Darren Antwis in Runcorn has tried it and says they're great (inbox me on Facebook and ill give you a link to his profile (im Scott Allan)), 2 reputable breeders have also bought one, Adrian halgarth and griff (Dont know second name). The range on these is the whole of the UK and is accurate down to the tree or building the birds is in or on. I would of bought one myself but its pointless as i will be flying a spar this season. the box itself is unsuitable for birds (correct me if im wrong) under 1lb 7oz due to its size.

i believe you just text it again and get another reply with another reading, it shows up on the google maps app on smartphones and you can get driving directions to the bird. i dont think you can get a constant reading, you have to give it time to land

Some pretty important question you've put across their Grovesy that need addressing.

Can't say I like what I'm hearing about this GPS System so far so I'll be sticking to my old MN10, Until it breaks I won't be changing it :thumbs:......

When a new system comes out, the norm is to loan a few sets out, and then hear it from a non biased view,
put ya money where ya mouth is GB :hmm: :thumbs:

That you should try contacting him over the iff or facebook, where he is more likely to be as it appears he only joined to answer your original questions :)

Hi All

Daryll from GB Falconry sent me and Adrian Halgarth (Scotland) a unit each, on first inspection I thought it a bit big so only really suitable for birds of around 2lb up, it fits on a track pack and lays neatly between the wings.
Switching on the unit, it goes into searching for sat etc, to cut a long story short, if your bird goes off you phone the unit up and it will ring twice then hang up on you, the unit on bird will then call you back with a text which when opened will bring up a map with its location to nearest postcode, and its altitude so you know how high off ground its sitting or still flying.

It is definately the way forward and Daryll will no doubt move forward when chips become less expensive and smaller.

Adrian has been using his unit extensively up in Scotland where signals are hard to find, he sent out a collegue with a GPS unit and standard tag, he lost signal on tag after 4 miles but the GPS unit kept giving Adrian its whereabouts continuosly !!!
It does work with a android phone and the distance is ............ as long as you have a signal, this Country or abroad ....
Griff that someone mentioned owns the Welsh Hawking Centre in Barry South Wales, I used to work there 20+ years ago, he is very well respected and spends most of his time out in Dubia now.

Daryll is a nice man to do business with and well worth a look on his website for Falconry equipment.

Regards All

Alec

P.S Its a shame I didn't have this before my Peri/Lanner p***** off, she still not back so eyes to the sky all, Thanks add me on facebook: Alec Shearer

im sorry, since when has daryll been a nice man? he cant even answer a question with out bad wording folk,
the unit is a point in the right direction, but not with GB falconry, this unit is for dogs and is made by another company, daryll will not answer your questions if he dont like them, also gets abusive with people if you constanly keep asking,
there is a telemetry tester in japan who ordered one from him, he is a well respected tester, but daryll didnt like the idea after he realised he'd sent one to him, see iff if you want the results, im sticking will my more expensive but more reliable and great aftercare marshall
