    I have read a lot of different opinions on mounting a GPS tracker... Some say you shouldn't do it as it may cause unwanted interference.... Any input would be appreciated

    I use the TAGG system. We have a dog and cat, and both have TAGG trackers. TAGG also allows you to download the TAGG app and you are able to track the TAGG tracker directly from the app. I had looked into trackers and I choose this one due to no GSM cell service in my area. The TAGG tracker use's CDMA cell service. Their service map looks very similar to the Verizon service map. I was able to find a brand new tracker for $60, which included 3 months of service for free. After that service can be 9.99 per month on a monthly basis, or 7.95 a month if you buy the full year. The system comes with collar attachments which fit pretty good to the landing skid of the bird. The attachments allow you to simply attache and detach the TAGG tracker when you wish. So most of the time the TAGG is out dog, but when i go flying i grab it off her collar and attach it to the other attachment i have on the landing skid of the bird.

    A lot of people here use trackers. I've never seen anyone complain that they cause unwanted interference.

    You can find a list of commonly used trackers here:

    This works great for me. I also take it on my dirt bike and quad so my wife can have peace of mind if I go out alone. I have a Polaris Razor, and when I go out with it, If I go hiking away from it, I strap it it to the Razor so if someone tries to steal it, I can easily track it.
