LynQ, which raised over US$ 1.5million on the Indiegogo crowdfunding platform, raising, is now on pre-sale. The device is based around the u-blox CAM-M8Q GNSS receiver – a GPS/GLONASS/BeiDou positioning module with an embedded antenna.

While smartphone-based solutions to locate friends and family are readily available, they are limited by mobile network reception. The LynQ location tracker has a radius of up to five-miles and does not need cellphones, networks or apps to operate.

The first generation of the tracker uses long-range, low power radio frequencies to connect devices. Up to 12 people can join a group, split up, and use the only button on the clip-on device to toggle through the group members.
