Dallas -- AT&T* today announced it will begin selling the Garmin GTU 10 online at www.att.com and in select AT&T company-owned retail stores beginning May 15. Ideal for tracking pets and property the GTU 10 GPS locator and web-based Garmin Tracker™ service works with computers, smartphones and compatible Garmin nulink devices. The GTU 10 is a small, lightweight waterproof device that easily attaches to a backpack or pet collar so customers can track the things that matter most.
While on the go, customers can download the Garmin Tracker™ application from their mobile device to see the location of GTU 10 and how it relates to their current location. GTU 10 owners can create up to 10 geofences (virtual boundaries that might include the home, schools, backyards, among other venues) for the device so that when it enters or exits a geofenced area, Garmin can send an email or text message notification to the user or authorized friends and family members. It's also easy to view the track history of where the GTU 10 device has been. Once customers register the GTU 10 at my.Garmin.com, the tracking service, delivered through the AT&T wireless network, is enabled.
"Known for providing reliable and innovative location-based technology, Garmin is expanding ways to help customers in their day to day lives with this tracking device," said Glenn Lurie, president, emerging devices, AT&T. "Connecting the GTU 10 to the AT&T wireless network is a great fit, and by offering it in select company-owned retail stores, we're making it even more convenient for our customers to keep track of their kids, pets or valuable property they care about most."
"Garmin's new GTU 10 marks another practical application for GPS-based technology, and we're pleased that AT&T recognizes the utility of this device," said Dan Bartel, Garmin's vice president of worldwide sales. "Whether you're keeping an eye on your young children this summer, your pets or your property, you'll have peace of mind knowing that you can easily and affordably track the locations of the things that matter most to you."
