We will review another dog tracker in this post which is the Cube GPS tracker. This GPS tracker is relatively sold for a cheaper price compared to other brands so I know I have tried it.
The Cube GPS is packaged in a simple black device that is somewhat light but a bit bulky. It also has these nice side clips that allow you to attach them to a backpack strap or dog collar.
It is small, simple, and can be attached to almost anything you want to track. This device is something a fur parent would want. Here is my review after trying out the Cube GPS tracker on my dog.
In the first week of use, the device is working fine. I was able to connect it easily with the app which I downloaded on my smartphone and it was ready to use. It seems to be serving its purpose, which is to track dogs and pets.
However, during our second week of use, it somehow failed to notify me that my dog is out of the safe zone. Luckily, he didn’t go too far from our house and was immediately found by our neighbor.
The Cube GPS Tracker is small in size, making it seem simple to attach to a cat or dog collar. The cube itself is only 1 ½ inch by 1 ½ inch by 0.35 inch in size and weighs less than three pounds.
While it looks compact, lightweight, and easy to attach, it is a bit heavy for small breeds. It is also a bit challenging to put on my dog as it is a bit bulky for him.
Color and Design
There is nothing much about its color and design. It is basically a black, rectangular thing that happens to be a GPS that you can attach to your dog’s collar. It’s very similar to the Tile tracker. I think it is good that you can attach it to any collar you want since the device is minimalist, it will go well with any color and design of the collar.
Shockproof and Waterproof
The Cube GPS Tracker is constructed from a durable, shock-resistant, and waterproof material. This device even has an IP67 waterproof rating.
Even if it is raining outside, the device continues to function. If your pet enjoys playing in the rain or with your sprinkler, this GPS tracker should suffice.
I read a review that says that the Cube GPS Tracker has a battery that can easily last up to 12 months and that it is simple to replace for free. I am not sure why, but in my experience, the battery died after a week. It’s no longer functioning so I had it replaced. The second battery is still working but I no longer use the device since it failed on tracking my dog.
The battery comes with an extracting tool so it is simple to replace it when necessary.
The Cube Tracker app is simple to use. I did not experience any trouble while setting it up and connecting it with the device. I’m unsure though if the failure of tracking has something to do with the app. So far, the app is working smoothly with no errors whatsoever but the device is malfunctioning from time to time and I can no longer rely on it to track my dog.
Upon connecting the device to your mobile app, you will have to set up a subscription. What I don’t like about its subscription plan is that it can be only used for one dog. Using Cube GPS Dog Tracker can be expensive for multi-dog owners.
It is also disappointing to be charged for a whole month’s subscription when the device is already failing to do its job on our second week of usage. To be fair, many dog trackers charge a monthly subscription but they are cheaper and also give you insights on the dog’s fitness activity and come with other smart features.
Overall, the Cube GPS tracker is not something I would recommend if you want to keep track of your pets and be relieved that they are safe. It’s not worth paying a high monthly fee while you are not getting the value of what you paid for. While this brand may be cheaper compared to other dog GPS tracking devices, it is better to invest in a more advanced tracker like Fi Collar or Tractive to get your money’s worth and save yourself from a lot of disappointment.
