It is called the Eco Seeker, and it is said to point towards any major eco source”— Skyheed
The Eco Seeker is a device or Precursor Artifact featured in The Lost Frontier. It can , as it name suggests, seek and target large amounts of Eco.When you first receive the seeker in the game it won't work. Not even when Jak tries his Dark Eco powers. This could be because of all of the Dark Eco in the surrounding area or the Eco seeker could have some kind of defense against Eco powers. Tym opens it later in the game and it is discovered it is missing three pieces and a power source. the Light Eco needed to power it is found at the Abandoned Research Rig. The three pieces (that are called coordinate sphere's) are found at the Old Aeropan Barracks, Far Drop (in the hands of the Saucy Pirate) and at the end of the sector zero vortex. After the Eco Seeker was finished it pointed our hero back to the Research Rig, or rather the Precursor Formations it was built on.
