Find Mode

Find mode allows you to make use of your phone or tablet's Bluetooth proximity feature to see if you are getting closer to or moving further from your pet when both devices are within Bluetooth range of each other.

This can help you to locate your pet indoors or in an area where GPS accuracy may be decreased due to tall buildings, forests, or weather (GPS interference). This feature even works if your tracker or phone is not connected to the network or internet - so you never need to worry about not being able to find your pet again!

Note: Find mode is only available on the latest models of the Tractive GPS.


How it works

Is your pet hiding in plain sight? Use the Find feature to locate your dog or cat using Bluetooth detected proximity. 

  1. To use this feature, Bluetooth and GPS must be enabled on your phone.
  2. Once enabled, wait a minute or two for the connection to be established.   
  3. When your tracker and mobile device are within Bluetooth range of each other, you will see the Find mode symbol in the bottom right-hand corner of the app. This symbol looks like a dog or cat standing in a circle. Simply press the symbol to activate Find mode. When your tracker and mobile device are no longer within Bluetooth range of each other, the symbol will disappear.
  4. As you get closer to your pet/tracker, more of the rings will turn blue. As you get further away, the rings will turn white again. From this screen, you can easily turn on the light or sound feature in order to help you locate your pet.
  5. Tap the Found button to return to the main screen after you have located your pet.


When using LIVE Tracking, you can also activate Find mode, in addition to the Light, Sound and Augmented Reality features. You can drag the bottom sheet showing the Light, Sound, AR and Find features up and down to hide and show these options.
