How the system differs from whats on the market today.
Presently, if your bird flies off (prone to that) then you get your television aerial out of the back of the car with a box full of dials (masters degree needed to decipher) point it till you get a signal from the transmitter and start walking. Water filled ditchs, Bramble, Hawthorn and finally Barbed wire fences are then sent to test us........then you're bird flies off again in another direction....eventually you find your bird, entice him/her down and then try and find your car you left many hours ago and many miles ago....of course it doesn't rain either......like hell it don't.
New System. Bird flies off.... give it 10 minutes to find somewhere to perch and then get your iphone out (or any other smart phone)and text it.....yes text it.....20 seconds later the unit will send you a message with its gps co-ordinates, open up the message and simply tap the hi-lighted message and it opens googlemaps and drops a pin where the bird is....tap directions and it maps a route.....drive there.......now heres the clever bit bottom right of the screen turn the page.....press satellite and it will even show you which tree its sitting in........CLEVER OR WHAT
>one last thing, many falcon and hawks lose there lives by landing on power lines while carrying other types of radio transmitter with a 12" aerial that makes the reach between the wires.(on the A38 by me there is only 12 inches between the wires) not so with GPS its all in the unit....
