PinPoint Argos Solar

  • The world’s smallest certified GPS Argos tags – now with solar cells!

    Data relayed after every 3rd GPS location and solar battery recharging for continual tracking.

    Accurate, automated GPS locations are taken at times/dates programmed by you, as solar charging allows. After every 3 locations, the latest locations can then be relayed to you from anywhere in the world, via an Argos Satellite as it passes over, ready to be downloaded online. The solar cells then use light to recharge the battery for detection of the next locations and data relay. These tags weigh from just 6g.

    Great for:

    • Species with good exposure to sunlight
    • Accurately tracking unknown migration routes
    • Low site fidelity species

    • Tag automatically recharged by solar cells
