Zoombak is well known for its personal GPS locators that can be used in many different situations. The company allows customers to access real time tracking information, whenever they need it. The service has endless possibilities; track missing bags, locate a stroller, fetch the family dog or even figure out where Grandma took off to on her scooter (this time). The locator itself is lightweight, small and is water resistant. If a customer wanted to track an item while on the move, they would create a “safety-zone”. They would then receive SMS or email notifications when the locator breached the safety zone.

Zoombak recently launched their BlackBerry mobile application and is now available in BlackBerry App World. Instead of running to their computer, Zoombak customers can now launch the app on their BlackBerrys and have the option to find the current location of the lost person/item. They can also choose to track; receiving updates every five minutes. While the application is free, keep in mind that the services that Zoombak offers start at $9.99 per month, on top of the cost of the unit. I think that this was an excellent move on Zoombak’s part. If one of their customers needs to track something or someone, they would want to keep as mobile, and portable, as possible.

This would be a phenominal product if it used a carrier with good rural coverage. Dog's don't ususally run along the expressways and interstates, and kids don't go parking there to drink beer and make out there either.

VZW, are you even paying attention?
