Trackimo works through a browser or a companion iPhone or Android app to locate the device and thereby whatever it is attached to.

Users can also see where the device has been over a designated period.
Customers can set up and activate Trackimo through a browser after entering the device’s ID number which can be found inside under the battery or on the back of the packaging.
The Trackimo needs to be outside to be located and once it is, it can only be seen by the owner and up to 10 trusted people if your choosing so they can receive alerts via email or SMS.

The device comes with a clip or a magnetic plate with Velcro so it can be attached quite easily to an object or a person. There’s also a loop to attach Trackimo to a lanyard or a keyring.
