Track What’s Important

GTU 10 is a GPS-enabled locator that combines a web-based tracking service with GPS technology to help keep possessions and the things you love safe and secure – whether a family pet, vehicle or other valuable property.

How It Works

The GTU 10 is small, lightweight and waterproof. It easily attaches to a backpack, pet collar or whatever is important to you.

When you purchase a new GTU 10, it comes with 1 year of Standard Tracking, so you’ll be ready to go once you register and activate it in your Garmin account.

Then, you can view the location of your GTU 10 on a map from the friendly confines of your computer or query its position on your smartphone. For an added level of convenience, you can download the free Garmin Tracker™ app for your mobile device to compare your current location to the direction and location of your GTU 10.

Using your computer or mobile device, you can also:

  • Create up to 10 geofences (virtual boundaries) for your device. When your GTU 10 enters or exits a geofence, Garmin can send you an email or text message notification.**
  • View track history of where your GTU 10 has been.
  • Customise device settings for optimal performance, including low battery/powered off notifications to let you know when it’s time to recharge or when the device has been turned off.

Attach your GTU 10 to what you want to track.

Your GTU 10 enters or exits a geofence that you set up.

We notify you with an email or text message.

You can also locate your GTU 10 on your computer or mobile device.
