The Zoombak Universal A-GPS Locator is the newest member of Zoombak's portfolio of A-GPS locators which includes the Zoombak™ Advanced GPS Car & Family Locator and the Zoombak™ Advanced GPS Dog Locator. Small enough to be placed in a car, backpack or briefcase and easily attached to a bicycle or dog's collar, Zoombak combines the coverage of cellular networks and the power of global positioning satellites to provide consumers with the most accurate, real-time location information available.

"We are pleased that Pep Boys has chosen the Zoombak Universal A-GPS Locator to expand its in-car electronics offerings, joining our growing list of retail partners who recognize the value of providing customers with innovative solutions," said Simon Buckingham, CEO of Zoombak.

Zoombak provides consumers with the ability to stay connected to the things that matter most. Using Zoombak's interactive website, customers can set up custom safety zones around virtually any location including homes, parks, malls and schools. When the device crosses one of the virtual boundaries, a text message or email alert promptly notifies users of the location of the device. Users can also pinpoint their Zoombak's location at any time on-demand from both their mobile phone and zoombak.com.

Starting at an affordable price of $199 plus a low cost monthly service plan, Zoombak is the only A-GPS locator technology already available nationwide at leading consumer electronics, specialty pet and automotive retailers including Circuit City, PetSmart, Al & Ed's Autosound, Amazon.com and BestBuy.com.
