Magpie: The Smartest GPS Tracker Around

Magpie is the smartest GPS service out there. It keeps the people and things you love close, no matter the distance. The team at Magpie believes premium technology should be available to everyone. That’s why they have built a GPS tracker that’s not only smart and small, but also affordable. By offering free trackers with a subscription-based model to their growing community, they can bring It to everyone. With Magpie, you can literally track anything, anytime, anywhere in the world.

It just wants to help you find things.

Magpie comes with a simple goal. It wants to help you find the things you lost. The GPS tracker is only about an inch in diameter and syncs with an Android or iOS app. It is waterproof. It can be easily attached to everyday items like keys, wallets, or laptops. You can also attach it to a pet’s collar or child’s backpack. The project is funded through Kickstarter, which means that anyone can pledge and get special pricing that will only be offered for a limited time.

Attach your Magpie to anything you want to keep track of.

It is so lightweight and so small it fits anywhere and hides easily. You can clip, stick or hook it onto anything making it the perfect sidekick for everyone.


Always know where your kids are with geofence alerts. If they wander too far from your “safe zone,” you’ll be instantly alerted. Your kids can squeeze Magpie to ring your phone, even when it’s on silent, whenever they need you.

People on the go.

Transform anything into smart luggage. With the help of Magpie, you will always know where your bags, laptop, wallet, purse or any essentials are.

Things that go.

Keep track of everything that moves (think: bikes, cars, drones—you name it). And, if they’re on-the-go and shouldn’t be, It will alert you with its built-in accelerometer.

Pet lovers.

Know where your pet goes and if it leaves a specific area. It is waterproof and dirtproof. It is also able to be clipped flush onto the collar or hooked (as shown here) so you can locate your pet anywhere, and through anything.

How Magpie works.

Magpie is so easy to use, simply squeeze to sync, attach and you’re ready to go.

1. How Magpie is different.

Magpie is the most affordable, truly global tracker. Others out there are either Bluetooth-powered with a short reach, or expensive and theoretical. We’re also set up with a subscription-based service, so there is no cost for the device and the cost of the GPS service is significantly less.

2. GPS (185 countries).

Magpie is made with the latest technology. This makes it one of the smallest products on the market with tracking capabilities across the world. You can take Magpie wherever you travel.

3. Long lasting.

Magpie’s battery is rechargeable, so you’ll never run out of juice. It will last anywhere from 1 day to 3 months on a single charge. It also depends on the tracking frequency you have put in place; by the minute, by the hour, by the day.

4. Waterproof and strong.

Magpie is waterproof and dustproof. It is designed to resist anything daily life throws at it.

5. Geofence alerts.

Magpie will let you know when it goes beyond the boundaries you have put in place. This way you can set and forget until you are alerted.

6. Accelerometer.

Magpie can alert you when something moves from the exact spot you left it. So you’ll know if your car, bike or anything isn’t where it should be.
