Tabcat (RF) or GPS ?

As winner of the Sunday Times best GPS (dog) device a few years back we’re pretty familiar with GPS technology but here’s a quick few pointers why we believe GPS is NOT the right technology for cats:

  • 1. Too large – Obvious one to start off with but larger GPS tags are uncomfortable. Many state they can be used on cats but they’ve been designed for larger dogs not cats.
  • 2. Too heavy – Weight of anything around your cats neck should be kept to an absolute minimal. When you compare the Tabcat Tag at 6 grams / 0.21 ounces compared with GPS tags you can immediately see GPS tags are just too heavy.
  • 3. GPS Battery power hungry – The idea of being able to see exactly where your cat is on your phone is ideal. The trouble is in practice it doesn’t quite work like this. GPS is inherently power hungry so when trying to locate, you need frequent location updates (say every 10 seconds). Due to the limited size of the battery it’s easy for the battery to run out before locating. If GPS tags are actively used they’ll need to be charged up at least twice a week.
  • 4. Accuracy – GPS needs a sim card like you have in your phone to transmit its location. If there’s poor reception on that network, in that area GPS won’t report. Location also typically varies from about 8 metre to significantly more. As GPS works best outdoors often there can be a loss of signal when they’re indoors – not ideal if they’ve got stuck in someone else’s house / garage / shed. Lastly with some of the hiding places we’ve seen cats get into a greater level of accuracy is needed to pin point their location.
  • 5. Monthly subscriptions – You’ll tend to find they’ll be a monthly subscription to cover ongoing tracking costs. Compare the total costs over a 3 or 5 year period and you could be surprised
  • 6. How far does your cat really wander ? – Cats tend to be pretty territorial and whilst there’s the exception most stay pretty local to where they live as demonstrated in the BBC Horizon documentary. This can easily be covered by walking the area with your Tabcat and once in range specifically guide you to their exact location.

To sum it up - We understand the benefits for GPS, it’s a great technology and one we’ve sold but the specific requirements a cat needs – small, light, accurate and a reasonable battery life is just not available today with GPS technology. It’s why we offer a 30 day money back guaranteed so you can test / compare Tabcat at home for yourself.

  • How do you register a tag to a handset?

    Place the tag you wish to register within arms length of the handset and ensure it is the only active tag in close proximity to the handset. Ensure the plastic strip has been removed to activate battery. To register the tag to button 1, hold button 1 down for three seconds or until you hear a beep. Repeat registration process for any other tags with the other available buttons.

    Alternatively, have a look at the process in video.

  • How do you Un-register a tag from a handset?

    Press the right hand side button to switch on your Tabcat – the red status light will flash. Press the left hand side (volume) button and simultaneously press button 1. Hold both buttons down for three seconds or until you hear a beeps. Then release both buttons. This will un-register the tag paired with button 1 and allow you to register the tag to a different button or handset. Repeat this process holding down the left hand side button and button 2 to un-register tag associated with button 2. Repeat as necessary for buttons 3 and 4.

  • How do you change the batteries in a tag?

    At the top end of each tag there is a hole which you can thread a lanyard through. At the opposite end there a small space you can insert the tag opening tool (included in pack). Insert into space and twist and tag will pop open. Replace with CR2032 battery keeping plus side face up. Replace the lid by lining up the lanyard hole and pressing shut.

  • What batteries does the Tabcat use?

    The Tabcat uses CR2032 batteries, one in the handset and one in each of the tags. They can be purchased from most supermarkets or stores that would sell batteries.

  • Is Tabcat available in the shops?

    Currently, Tabcat products are only available online, through the Tabcat Official Store online. We are currently working with a variety of retailers to make Tabcat available in retail shops.

  • Does Tabcat work abroad?

    Yes, Loc8tor works on the 2.45GHz frequency band which can be used worldwide.

  • Can I remove the adhesive seals on and in my tag?

    We strongly advise keeping the clear adhesive seal on your tags for the first 30 days. If you wish to return your tag, the adhesive seal will need to still be applied to your tag, with no signs of prior removal. After 30 days you can remove the clear seal if you wish.
    The yellow seal inside the tag must not be removed at any point in time. Removing could void your warranty.

  • Product Maintenance

    We recommend removing the tag form the silicone case every three months to extract cat hair from the case and inside the tag. When removing you must also check for scratches, bite marks or damage caused by your cat to the silicone case. If any damage has incurred, we recommend replacing. (Replacement cases can be purchased via our website). The duration of the silicone case depends on your cat.

    We also recommend:
    - Using the silicone case to protect the tag
    - Only using the tag opening tool provided to open tags.
    - Ensuring the tag is lined up correctly before closing shut.
    - Replacing the battery every 2-4 months with CR2032 only

  • Pet Safety

    Please check to ensure collar is not too loose or tight to avoid rubbing. When adjusting the collar, you must leave enough space to be able to slide two fingers between the collar and your cat’s neck to avoid injury, or two-three fingers for long hair cats. Owners should be aware of how to fit a collar correctly and it is owners responsibility to choose the correct collar for their cat. For your cats comfort we recommend the collar/Tabcat is removed once a month and checked.
