How can I plan a route to my pet’s location?

Searching for your pet by car and you don’t have anyone with you to help you navigate? Forwarding your pet’s location to Google Maps or Apple Maps is especially useful if your pet has run a little too far off to fetch them back home on foot, so you can easily plan a car trip to their location.

To do so, you just need to follow these steps:

  • Open the Tractive GPS app on your phone
  • Go to Profile > Tracker
  • Scroll down and tap Options next to Location
  • Tap Open in Maps

Your maps page will now open and display your pet's location so you can now easily plan a car ride to make sure that your pet returns home safely as soon as possible.

If you have a PREMIUM Tractive GPS subscription, using our Sharing features is also very convenient when you’re searching for your pet with the help of others. You can read more about this topic in the following articles:
