News: GPS helps protect endangered wildlife

pocketgpsworld.com
In Namibia hi-tech is now being used in the battle between Park Rangers and Poachers, but it is also able to act as a warning system for farmers.

Livestock farmers have always been vulnerable to predation of their animals. This is mainly from the populations of large cats. In the past the main option for the shepherds has been to shoot the predators, but GPS is changing this.

In a project featuring a cheetah called Joris, named after a 7 year old who sponsors the cat, GPS collars are being fitted to big cats to track them. This allows the conservationists to alert farmers when the predators move towards the livestock and allow the farmer to manage their stock in a way that prevents confrontation with and eventual killing of the cats.

News: MOUNTR - an innovative wireless charging car mount solution

pocketgpsworld.com
Mountr have launched an innovative new car mounting solution for smartphones that uses a unique smartphone case with wireless charging.

Coupled with a dedicated magnetic cradle, the combination couldn't be easier to use. Touch your phone to the cradle and the magnetic mount automatically aligns the two and also connects power.

You can rotate the case into landscape and portrait positions, there are no more wires to connect and no cradle to phone connectors that increase wear and require precise alignment.

Mountr have tested the design to ensure the magnetic mount is strong enough to keep the device secured, the magnets can hold 10 times the weight of a phone. They are available with window suction and air vent mounting options and currently Mountr support a range of Samsung Galaxy and iPhone models with more to come.

We have received a starter kit and will be following up with a full review soon.
