There are three GPS locators in Sons of the Forest, and they're all located in the northwestern part of the game's expansive map. The first one is situated in the upper part of the map, just about directly north of the Maintenance B Digsite and to the west of the Beached Kayaks. It's located near a wooden cross grave, hidden among the foliage. You'll need a shovel to dig into the ground to retrieve it.

The second GPS locator location in Sons of the Forest is somewhere in the ocean, south of the first GPS location. Look for a small inflatable boat in the distance and then swim toward it. Once there, climb aboard, where you'll find the GPS locator on a dead body, a pistol, and some other items on the floor. But be warned: sharks will swim around the boat, and you must use the gun to fend them off.

The final GPS locator in Sons of the Forest is directly east of the second location and south of the Maintenance A Digsite. It is found on the body of a man hanging off the side of a cliff. To retrieve it, cut the rope holding the body and wait for it to fall to the ground. Once it does, you can loot the body to recover the GPS locator. In addition to the GPS locator, you will also find a flashlight on the body.
