If you live in a big city, you likely suffered the misfortune of having something stolen. Maybe thieves swiped your bike, motorcycle, car or backpack.
Whatever the item, it sucks. But this week’s Cult of Mac giveaway can help you when disaster strikes. Invoxia, an award-winning designer of tracking devices, is giving three lucky winners its Cellular GPS Tracker and a one-year subscription to 4G networks that let the device work its magic.
If you constantly misplace your bag or worry about getting your bike stolen, make sure you enter our giveaway.
Invoxia Cellular GPS Tracker
The sleek $129 Invoxia Cellular GPS Tracker is housed in a black aluminum case with a leather cord. It will track the people you love and your vehicles. It is light and discreet (weighs 30 grams and is just 4 inches in length), making it easy to place anywhere.
Unlike Bluetooth trackers such as Apple’s AirTags, which need an iPhone nearby to locate your missing object, Invoxia’s standalone Cellular GPS Tracker has unlimited range. Since it utilizes 4G cellular networks, it works practically anywhere to easily track people and possessions.
The GPS Tracker includes a SIM card and comes with a one-year subscription to 4G networks (LTE Cat-M1). After the initial year subscription is finished, you will be charged $29.90 per year. Invoxia is among the first to release a low-cost tracker using this affordable technology: Classic GSM trackers have subscription fees up to $20 per months and hidden activation fees.
Invoxia’s GPS Tracker has an extensive battery life that lasts between up to seven weeks depending on various factors. And in its energy-saving mode, it will last up t0 four months. The rechargeable 250mAh battery will charge in 90 minutes with the included Micro-USB cable.
The GPS Tracker is compatible with IFTTT,(short for If This Then That), an automation platform that helps devices, services and apps work well together. For example, you can set up rules to set the house alarm when you leave your home with the tracker, or open the garage door when entering your driveway. The options are endless.

Track and protect your vehicle
In the United States, a car theft occurs every three minutes. A motorcycle is stolen every 11 minutes. To counter this, the Invoxia tracker’s anti-theft alerts can be triggered when an item moves or by gentle vibrations caused by things like lock tampering.
To use it, simply place the Invoxia GPS Tracker in the glove box or trunk of your vehicle. In case of any movement, you will be the first to know. If you own a scooter or motorcycle, put the tracker in the top case or in the seat box.
You can get creative with your tracker placement — just don’t put it someplace visible. Invoxia offers tips for where to place your tracker for ultimate security.
Invoxia also publishes a blog full of successful vehicle recoveries. One person even found their parachute lost in flight.
Track and protect your loved ones
The Invoxia GPS Tracker can also monitor your children or your senior parents. You can set it so you receive notifications when children arrive or leave predefined areas that set. If you have senior relatives, you will be able to determine specific zones and get notifications of any unusual journeys.
The tracker also comes equipped with an alert button. That way, the person can send an alert with their position from anywhere in the United States, at any time.
Just slip the Invoxia GPS Tracker inside a bag’s interior pockets or in the lining of a coat for instant peace of mind.
