For just £20 (plus from £2 per month on a 24-month subscription), Curve, the award-winning smart GPS tracker from Vodafone (www.vodafone.co.uk) just got even smarter with a host of new features such as Beep to Find, Bluetooth Proximity Indicator, Multi-User and Get Directions – making it one of the smartest all-around trackers on the market.
These features will be automatically added to all Curve devices already purchased by customers via a software update.
Bluetooth Proximity Indicator and Beep to Find can be used when your phone is within the Bluetooth range of Curve and it will pinpoint its location providing a visual indicator the closer you get. Once customers are within 5 metres they can then activate the beep function to find it faster.
Unlike Bluetooth-only trackers, Curve uses a combination of four different tracking technologies – GPS, Wi-Fi, Cellular and Bluetooth – to provide a more reliable connection to your favourite things. For example, GPS will tell you if your keys (attached to Curve) are in the house, Bluetooth will help narrow this down to a particular room and Beep to Find will guide you to its exact location.
The new Multi User function allows you to add up to nine guests to your profile in the Vodafone Smart App – which is great if there’s a group of you wanting to track the same thing, such as a dog or a vehicle.
The new Get Directions feature means you can now send and receive directions with your contacts, as well as share Curve’s location by sharing it to your Apple or Google Maps.
With a lightweight design, up to seven days’ battery life, a quick location alert button, easy-to-set location zones and keyring accessory, Curve combines form, functionality and durability. Available in two colours, Dove and Slate, Curve blends seamlessly with belongings. The device is connected by the Vodafone Smart SIM which enables smartphone updates to be sent even when the device is used from a distance or abroad, working in over 90 countries.
