For covert operation, the Spy Video TRAKR camera rolls close to the ground on four wheels that have special stealth treads. Equipped with an antenna, microphone, adjustable video lens, and speaker, TRAKR makes it easy to observe your suspects.
While the TRAKR is equipped with stealth treads for easy mobility, it is not designed for travel through sand, water, or snow. Avoid puddles and stick to paved or clean surfaces to ensure lasting operation.

It's easy to maneuver the TRAKR robot with the handheld remote, which has dual toggling controllers and an easy-access "go" button. The remote's greatest feature, however, is its color video screen. TRAKR transmits video of your suspects back to the remote control in real time, letting you in on the action immediately. Additionally, a front-located speaker lets you listen in on top-secret conversations.
Plug In for Advanced Spying
You can run TRAKR in normal mode or take advantage of its preloaded apps for more advanced functionality. TRAKR is loaded with a night vision app for performing video surveillance in the dark. Additionally, a preprogrammed mapping app lets you send your TRAKR on a predetermined path. TRAKR is also loaded with a cyborg vision app, which lets you monitor your suspects using a speedometer, a spy compass, and crosshairs.
Use the included USB cable to download additional apps to your TRAKR from the Spy Gear Web site, where you can also design custom apps of your own.
Record Your Evidence
If you need to keep a record of your evidence, Spy Video TRAKR can store pictures and video with a standard memory card (sold separately). TRAKR comes with a USB cable for uploading video and downloading applications--it is compatible with Mac (OSX), Windows (XP, Vista, Windows 7) and Linux computers.
The Spy TRAKR requires 10 AA batteries and a small Phillips head screwdriver for battery installation.
