The RoamEO Location System allows a pet owner to locate his pet and track its movements. The system consists of a portable, handheld receiver that displays information received from the GPS-enabled collar. The handheld device uses a color LCD to show the location, direction and velocity of up to three pets, and readings are updated every few seconds, according to the manufacturer. The pet owner can also set up a GPS fence to establish a walking perimeter for the pet.

Anyone who recovers the pet can call the toll-free number on the tag or log on to www.idtag.com.
