We are sorry to report that Pocket Tracker is no longer available. It was discontinued because some of its parts were obsoleted and replacements have not been found. This page remains for reference.

However, Byonics now carries a similar product, the Micro-Trak 300.

HiValue Radio has created the Pocket Tracker, a 2-meter FM transmitter combined with a TinyTrak3 that provides an easy and inexpensive way to build an APRS tracker. Just plug in a GPS receiver and Track!
  • No need to tie up an expensive radio for APRS tracking
  • No complicated radio cabling
  • Simple 2 wire GPS connection
  • Extremely long battery life ( > 100 hours when properly configured) - Keep on trackin'!TM
  • PIC controlled, PLL-Stabilized, FM APRS Transmitter
  • Simple kit (All SMT parts are pre-assembled)
  • Simple RF alignment (one variable inductor)
  • Supports all the latest Byonics TinyTrak3 features.
