Petrek 3G is temporarily unavailable due to a recently identified problem with a new GPS antenna part resulting in some trackers from our most recent batch exhibiting significantly inaccurate GPS location updates and battery life well below normal levels. Our engineers are working to rectify the issue at this time and, if the issue can be fixed with a firmware upgrade the Petreks will be available again within days. If the solution involves new hardware (parts) then it may take a few weeks before availability is returned.
Some of these trackers are not able to be detected by our testing both at the time of manufacture and here at our office just prior to sale so we have decided to make this difficult decision to temporarily stop sales. We apologise for this inconvenience but, as we are used to delivering a high quality/performance product, we cannot continue to release Petrek 3G trackers on the market that may prove to be faulty.
The new Petrek 3G GPS Pet Tracker is the world’s first and smallest 3G dedicated GPS tracker for pets!

Petrek 3G GPS Pet Tracker.
Do you love your Dog or Cat so much that losing them would feel as bad as losing a family member?
We know the feeling, and that is why, after years of R&D, we developed an advanced GPS Tracker.
This product was created specifically for and by pet owners who gave Lintek valuable feedback about what they wanted in a pet tracking system. With the current technologies available we have managed to put together a GPS Tracker that took as little as 30min to charge to full and lasted days of usage while also being able to reserve battery life when no movement was detected.
The Petrek GPS is the most innovative GPS Pet tracker in the market and, at 30 grams, can be used with even small dogs and cats! It operates using a pre-paid SIM card so you are not locked into any monthly costs. The Petrek GPS comes with a pre-installed SIM card loaded with enough credit to last 3 months that only needs activating after you have received the tracker.
So what makes the Petrek 3G GPS Pet Tracker so advanced?
Well, it’s the first 3G GPS Pet Tracker on the market. Our previous 2G Petrek Pet Tracker was also the first to offer a phone app that we developed especially for smartphones running on iOS and Android based systems. The app is now called iPet and, with the iPet app you are able to use your smartphone to do various functions!
Live location: Get live location updates by the press of a button shown on Google Maps with an accuracy of 2.5metres so you know exactly where your pet is or the last location of your pet.
Satellite view: With the touch of a button you can use full satellite imagery so you know which house, tree or fence your pet might be closest to.
Through the iPet App for both Android and iOS phones you can now put your finger on your property and immediately create a proximity circle that you can adjust from 100 metres to 999 metres. Depending on your update time, should the iPet app detect your dog or cat outside the proximity circle on the latest location update, you will get an alert and notifications within seconds!
*Geo-Fencing relies on GPS signals for the Petrek GPS to update its location . As long as the tracking is moving (not in sleep mode) and outdoors, the breach will be picked up. Please also note a 3G network is required to send the notification to your phone.
Low Battery alert: When your Petrek GPS Pet Tracker is about to run out of juice, you will get a text to alert you to charge it up.
If the Petrek 3G does not detect movement, it simply goes to sleep mode. In pure sleep mode, it can last up to 5 days. However in practical use, depending on how active your pet is, update frequency and features you set to.
- Normal mode (5-10 min updates) - Approx 8-14 hours
- Urgent mode (30 Sec updates) 5-8 hours
- Power saving mode (2 hour updates) 2-4 days
*Battery life varies significantly depending on usage levels, For example in places with poor GPS (when indoors) or 3G reception battery life can decrease up to 2 hours, but if your pet is normally out and about in open areas where the tracker don't have to constantly hunt for better reception the battery life will increase. Read our FAQ for more information.
*Note Switching back from Power saving mode may take up to 15 minutes, however if Geo-fence is triggered on the next update, it will send an notification and change back to “normal” mode.
- Submersible: the new Petrek 3G has an IP67 waterproof reading which means that the tracker can be submerged in water 1 metre deep for 30 minutes!
- Location History: Using the iPet app you can find out where your pet has been for any day in the previous 2 months!
- Heat Map: Using this function, you can tell where your opet is spending most of his or her time during any day over the previous 2 months. NOTE: The Heat Map function is NOT available to iPhone users.
- Dimensions are 46mm(L) x 38mm(W) x 19mm(H) without the collar adapting silicon jelly case. Weight is 29 Grams without SIM card, or 30 Grams with SIM Card.
*1 – Live location updates require a 3G and GPS signal. GPS signals require clear sight of sky. If the tracker is inside a building with metal or concrete roofing it may affect GPS signals. So for best location updates the tracker requires to be outdoors. LBS Assist function: If the tracker is indoors or under a building the tracker will then search for the nearest telecommunications cell tower (3G) to give you an idea of which area it might be. This guesstimation of location using 3G can be turned off if preferred. Please read the terms and conditions for more information.
*2 – Satellite view is only as accurate as the GPS signal - if there is GPS signal you will get a very accurate view. If there is no GPS signal as mentioned in *1 then, if LBS Assist function is enabled, the view will show you the nearest location using cell towers just to give you an idea of which area the tracker is located.
*3 – Geo-fencing relies on adequate GPS signal strength - as long as the tracker is moving and is outdoors, movement outside of the perimeter of the Geo-fence will be picked up but if it’s inside a vehicle and not near the window it may not pick up. The timing of the notification that your pet has left the Geo-fence area depends on the settings you are using for location updates.
*4 – Low battery alert applies only If there is 3G signal, if the collar is in an area with no reception you may not get a warning.
