Garmin has introduced the GTU 10 GPS tracking device. The small gadget is lightweight (48.5g) and waterproof making it useful for numerous applications. Among its suggested uses include tagging it to luggage, pet collars and even children so that a parent can note their child's location. Users simply log into their computer to be able to view its location. Users can also download the Garmin Tracker app for their mobile device to be able to compare their current location to that of the GTU 10.

Using their computer, users can also set up to ten geofences (virtual boundaries) for their device. When the GTU 10 enters or exits the boundaries it can notify users by text message or email. The location history of the device can also be tracked. Depending on functions chosen, its battery life is anywhere from 1 month to 1 day.

The Garmin GTU 10 is retailing for $200 from the Garmin online store. It will ship in 5-8 weeks.
