LynQ is the ultimate GPS tracker that lets you locate family and friends without having to rely on your phone. It’s the world’s most advanced “people compass” and perfect for traveling in groups.


LynQ uses algorithms that allow tracking through a combination of long-range radio communication, GPS and a custom antenna that can pull a signal under any patch of open sky. It requires no WiFi or cell networks, and no monthly fees. With the ability to link up different devices, you can keep tabs on up to 12 people at once. It offers a broad-range signal of up to three miles and three days of battery on one charge.


You can also set up a home base or safe zone. This allows you to create a meet-up location for when your group splits to go explore, or get a notification when someone leaves a designated area. It’s the perfect tool for people who lack a sense of direction, or anyone with kids that tend to wander off — LynQ can direct you right to them if they’re lost. You can also attach it to your dog’s collar.


The closed, private network created by syncing the devices prevents it from picking up random LynQs to avoid any confusion. It’s also weatherproof and can stand up against rain and snow.


LynQ is a little on the pricey side, but more than worth the cost in an emergency. A two-pack currently runs at $209 on pre-order, with the expected final price to be $298. You can purchase additional devices as needed or in packs. Check out the website for more information on features and ways to order.
