We've been using this device for about 3 weeks now, and it's been an eye-opener for us as to where our cat goes at night! We had no idea how many gardens he traversed and hedgeways he hunted along.
Pros: It's really simple to use. Just upload the file from the unit after every adventure.
Cons: The battery life isn't great. The website claims it lasts 8hrs, but ours lasts about 4hrs maximum. Also the GPS sometimes doesn't pick him up for ages.
Conclusion - expensive, but worth if if you want to know where your cat goes! I'd suggest you pass/rent it around to your friends/family after a few weeks when you've got bored of it.

I got this toy knowing its a bit of a gimmick after watching the secret life of a cat
I was quite excited to see where our cat goes all day! The device didn't seem to trouble our cats, and once you cat brings back the device, You have to upload the information to a website, powered by google maps and is perfectly functional. The GPS sadly isn't overly accurate. The information does warn that if you cat is under a car or hiding the GPS location can wander. Sadly this can be 50m or so, and the end results we had were all over the place.

It's been great to find out where my moggy mooches!
We thought they where going in an entirely different direction than it turned out it's been fascinating to see!
What's even better is that now we know where they're going we know more or less the best places to look if they ever went missing.
One of my favourite parts has been seeing the GPS track them as they're hunting... round and around and around and around they go!!!

Well have just got it all sorted, and have put tracker on my cats collar.
So will let you know when she comes back in and then I can download where she has been.
