Traveling in groups? It can difficult to keep everyone together. That’s why a GPS tracker is essential to keeping everyone safe and in touch. The XQuad GPS Tracker is a must for anyone who doesn’t travel alone.


XQuad offers an alternative to texting and boasts one mega incentive — it doesn’t rely on cell signal. The tracker is able to keep your friends close even when you’re off the grid. Backpacking through the deepest part of Patagonia and afraid of getting lost? No longer a problem. Best of all, XQuad covers groups of up to 30 people at once. It lets you send a message or broadcast to the group in any situation. The tracker uses four satellite systems — GPS,GLONASS, Galileo, Beidou — to keep tabs on users’ real-time locations on one screen.


Other useful features include more than 24-hour continuous usage for a range of up to 3.7 miles, a barometric altimeter, compass and a 2-inch color sunlight readable display. It can be attached to your clothing, a pet’s collar or worn on your wrist. It also lets you set a safe zone and notifies you if anyone in the group steps outside its range. Best of all, there are no monthly fees.


The XQuad can be purchased in bundles of four or as few as two. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but at $298 for the price of two it seems well worth the cost. First shipments are expected to begin June 2020. Check out the website for more information on features and ways to order.
