About Magpie GPS Tracker
The Magpie GPS Tracker is a new product currently being crowdfunded on Kickstarter that promises to give customers the ability to track all the things they love in their lives, from computers to pets to children.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, the goal of the Magpie GPS Tracker is keep their customers connected to the people and the things that are most important to them, no matter where they may be in the world.
To do this, Magpie decided to change the way GPS trackers are sold. Instead of asking their customers to purchase their tracker and then also sign up for monthly tracking services, Magpie is going to give their customers the physical tracking devices for free as long as they sign up for the monthly tracking services.
Their website says that this was the best way to provide their customers with the highest quality technology but still keep their product affordable enough for the vast majority of people.
Magpie also worked hard to create a device that would meet all of their customers’ tracking needs. This is why their device comes with the ability to be clipped, hooked, or stuck onto the things it needs to track, and is designed to be waterproof, dirt proof, and to be tracked in 185 different countries.
This product is actually not yet available on the open market, as it is still in the process of their Kickstarter crowdfunding project. During their crowdfunding, customers will be able to purchase a Magpie GPS Tracker Starter Kit for $49, and this kit will include one Magpie Unit, clip, and charging cable as well as tracking service for 12 full months. Their website says that this is an 18% discount off the eventual retail price.
Their website does say that this product is estimated to ship in February of 2018, but these dates may change if issues or problems occur during the production process.
Because this product is still in the crowdfunding stage of production, it does not appear that their website offers any information regarding refunds or returns of their product at this time.
Customers who are curious about refunds of the money they paid to the Kickstarter campaign will need to contact their Customer Service team directly to see what policies might be in place, and hopefully by the time these products begin shipping out to crowdfunding supporters the website itself will be offering a published, detailed explanation of Refund or Return Policies for their customers who have an issue with their purchase.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact Customer Service with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by using the Ask A Question link available on their Kickstarter page.
Unfortunately this company does not yet have any products available for their customers, so there are not any customer reviews available for them at this time. That being said, there are already many different kinds of GPS tracking devices available on the market, including those that work in a variety of different international locations, so it isn’t difficult to believe that this company will be able to meet the promises they are making to their investors.
Competitors and Alternatives?
As mentioned above, there are many different GPS tracker products available on the market, including Chipolo Tracker, Nut Smart Tracker, Tractive GPS Pet Tracker, Wuf Pet Tracker, and many others. Many GPS trackers are marketed as being best used in a specific purpose; either to track pets or to track objects, but not always both as these two different activities require different features. Consider what you will really be using this product for in order to find the best alternative for your needs.

1 ‘Magpie GPS Tracker’ Review
This was a scam.
They took the money from Kickstarter and they never release anything.
They offered a refund with unclear steps with a deadline.
Basically, they get a loan from Kickstarter, used this money to investigate and grow, get adquired or heavy funded externally and return the loan.
