    Hi I live in Idaho and have a new puppy. I am looking for a GPS based pet locator that looks for a chip or id tag. I have Motorola Droid. Thanks Joe

    Welcome to the Android Forums!

    Based on current technology it's not likely that this would be presently possible. It's my understanding that current microchips being implanted in animals are based on passive RFID technology. In order to activate the microchip you'd need a compatible wireless power source in close proximity to the animal. Once the microchip is activated you'd then need a cellular device to transmit the animals id and location back to you.
