Hi Product Hunters, I’m Manoj and I am a Startup Founder based in Amsterdam. I got started on this journey about a year ago when I was visiting Paris for the first time. Although I had a great time, I couldn’t help feeling a little homesick so I decided to go 30 miles outside the city to watch an Indian movie. The movie was pretty good but the problem was by the time it finished there were no trains back to the city. And I ended up sleeping on the station floor in the middle of winter. So why didn’t I just call an Uber, or why didn’t I call my friends. Well, the thing is my phone had died. We’ve all been there. But the worst part is my phone had died so quickly because I’d been testing out a location-based messaging app that I was working on at that time. When I woke up the next morning stiff, cold and slightly pissed off. I realized something had to be done. I put a team of the smartest people I know together and over the next few months, we built GeoSpark. GeoSpark is a location tracking technology with 90% less battery drain. What that means is App makers can do more with location and perhaps, more importantly,​ I’ll probably never have to sleep on a station floor again.

Are we trading off details for battery? What part of location tracking takes the most power? Geopositioning or transmitting to server?
@lordloh GeoSpark focuses on accuracy and location data. So you’re not trading off accuracy or data for better efficiency. Geo positioning takes most of the power.
