    Pros: 

    Works without signal, doesn't let you get distracted in messages, sturdy design

    Cons: 

    It's another device to carry and to charge so that needs to be coordinated a bit (especially if you're out and about the whole day)

    Used it at a festival and it was awesome – easy to see which way people went and to meet up with them. Often group management is super hard and there's always someone who doesn't pick up the messages, meaning you have to walk slow to get to the right scene or spend all day looking for your friends. With Lynq it's easy to wander off to a side stage with the comfort of knowing you can always get back to your friends later (or they can find you).

    Pros: 

    Works flawlessly

    Cons: 

    None

    Tried an early version at Coachella 2017 and it worked perfectly. It navigated me to a friend who I thought had walked in the total opposite direction. At the end of the day, the lynQ CTO was able to find me from half a mile away in the Uber line to retrieve the device. Amazing!

    Ritesh Patel has used this product for one day.

I have personally used lynQ at Burning Man, in the jungles of Thailand, and ATVing in Missouri - the device has survived being run over, dropped in a creek, and being used in sub freezing conditions in Svalbard in the arctic circle. I can personally vouch for the device’s reliability and ability to operate in challenging conditions. Disclaimer: I helped lynQ roll out the Autism market and with component design in 2017/2018

Thanks for hunting us @rueter... LynQ is a People Compass that allows you to find your friends and family instantly - NO phones, networks, monthly fees or even maps required. It's perfect for finding your friends at music festivals, taking your kids to the park, traveling or skiing with the rest of your family. As much as LynQ is for having fun - it's also for saving lives. We're working with partners like the Thomson Foundation for Autism to help caregivers keep track of kids with autism/special needs and last summer we participated in a field experiment with US Pacific Command around the location of wounded or unconscious soldiers. US Pacific Command published a formal report on LynQ citing a 61% reduction in time spent locating wounded or unconscious soldiers. Welcome aboard, Product Hunters!

I was won over after 5 minutes of dabbling with a prototype earlier this year. Lynq is a game changer. I can’t wait to have mine.

I’ve personally tested the product in beta since last year when it was in prototype mode and it worked beautifully. The team behind this product is by far world class with a laser focus approach to keeping friends, family, and loved ones together. Their day-1 mentality married with their obsessive focus to makena consumer friendly product resulted in the Lynq. i’ve used it in barcelona, ice land and the playa. trust me, get one today! note: I know them personally and have spent time with them traveling using the lynq.
