Bond receives one of the earliest prototypes of a homing device from Q. The small, metallic 'bug' is placed inside Goldfinger's Rolls-Royce by 007, thus allowing him to follow the billionaire through Switzerland. As Bond's Aston Martin features a hidden monitor which displays a map indicating Goldfinger's whereabouts up to a range of 150 miles, he rationalizes that the device would 'allow a man to stop off for a quick one en route'. Q also gives 007 a smaller version of the homer which Bond hides in a hollowed-out space in the heel of his shoe, thus allowing Felix Leiter to trace him.
