CARY, NC, August 12, 2010 (Press-News.org) Securus Inc., a provider of GPS-based products and technology, today announced the general availability of the SpotLight GPS Pet Locator mobile application for the BlackBerry. SpotLight GPS Pet Locator is the only product that combines GPS tracking technology with the 24/7 American Kennel Club Companion Animal Recovery (AKC CAR) services, providing a proactive approach to reconnect lost pets with their owners.
"The SpotLight application for the BlackBerry is another way of lowering consumers' anxieties when they have to be away from their pets," said Chris Newton, CEO of Securus Inc. "With the addition of the application, consumers can now get real-time turn-by-turn direction from their BlackBerry. If their pet does go missing, they have the best tools to recover them as quickly as possible."
The SpotLight mobile application for the BlackBerry provides pet owners the capability of monitoring their pet right at their fingertips. The application is feature rich, yet easy to use. The application utilizes the BlackBerry's GPS capabilities so when the owner is tracking their pet, it will update their current location as well as the pets, all in real-time. With the SpotLight application for the BlackBerry, you can turn on and off the LED light so you can find your dog at night, you can manage your alerts and battery life, and much more. Non BlackBerry users are still able to send text messages to perform these functions.
