W500 Wireless GPS Logger

The models W500 and W510 Wireless GPS Loggers will provide you with GPS lat/long positions stored in non-volatile memory. 
Used on turkeys in a backpack configuration, and on tortoises and other reptiles attached using glue, or on small mammals like fishers and foxes, using a collar attachment. An expandable collar version is available for fawns.

Perfect collar for cats, foxes, and other similarly sized animals requiring extended deployment.

When you need to collect your data, locate the your GPS Logger using its integrated VHF transmitter, and use the pocket-sized Wildlink W100 Remote Comm Module to wirelessly download data to your PC.

Range of up to 600 meters is possible using the optional hand-held High Range Yagi antenna.

ATS supplies you with programming software called GPSFixes. It gives you complete control over the operation of your logger, and allows you to get the maximum number of animal locations over time.
