In addition to providing helpful information for business operations, GPS tracking systems are also used for personal safety. Here, we’ve outlined some of the best safety features today’s GPS trackers have to offer.
The Panic Button
Perhaps the most important feature of a GPS tracker for personal safety is the panic button. With the press of a single button, a GPS user in an emergency situation can immediately alert others if his or her tracker is equipped with a panic button. On most GPS tracking systems, this feature activates a rapid-fire sequence of location alerts followed by automated cell phone alerts via GPS tracking software.
The ability to communicate with another human being in the event of an emergency can mean the difference between life and death. If you’re selecting a GPS tracking system for personal safety, TrackingTheWorld recommends a tracking device with two-way voice capabilities.
Extreme Weather Durability
For personal safety, a GPS tracker with all-weather durability is important, particularly if you are an outdoor enthusiast. In situations such as mountain biking or snow skiing, your safety may depend on the ability of your GPS tracker to reliably function in less than desirable temperatures. Be sure to ask your GPS dealer for specifics on bad weather and water resistance capabilities before purchasing a tracker.
Long Battery Life
Another of the most important safety features for GPS trackers is the ability of the tracker to operate for as long a period as possible without a charge. Depending on locate update intervals (how often you want the tracker to report your location), today’s GPS trackers can go as long as a month or more between charges. With this capability, or something similar, you can rest assured your GPS tracking system will function even if you forget to charge it once in a while.

TrackingTheWorld recently announced the availability of all-inclusive GPS tracking packages for the New Year featuring the firm’s best-selling EnduroPro GPS tracking device.
Available through January 31, 2014, the packages include the EnduroPro, an extended life battery pack, choice of mini-magnetic case or ankle bracelet accessory, and three, six, or twelve months of GPS tracking service depending on the selected package (ranging in cost from $345-$545) .
“This offer is a convenient and very affordable way to get started in GPS tracking systems, or add to your current tracking devices,” said Gilbert Walz, CEO of TrackingTheWorld. For the New Year’s offer, TrackingTheWorld is also waiving its standard $69 activation fee.
The EnduroPro GPS tracking device included in the package offers is designed to provide reliable real time tracking data in extreme weather conditions, and is water resistant to IPX-5 standards. The professional-grade tracker is used for a broad range of applications, including asset tracking, covert tracking, personal protection, and law enforcement.
Time to first fix for the Enduro Pro is 29-seconds from a cold start, and less than one second from a hot start. The tracker includes a built-in motion sensor to extend battery life, which powers down the tracker when it is not in motion, resulting in one of the longest battery lives available for trackers of similar size.
The EnduroPro device is equipped to operate for up to 16-days on a single charge based on five minute reporting intervals and one hour of reporting per day, and can operate for up to 60-days using the dual-layered Lithium ion battery pack included in the limited time package offers.

Correctional News is reporting an increase in the number of paroled SC offenders tracked via GPS. Numbers are up from 400 tracked offenders in 2011 to 600 tracked offenders in 2013, all of whom must pay a weekly $40 fee for tracking. The report states that most of South Carolina’s tracked parolees are sex offenders, citing the state’s passing of Jessica’s Law in 2006 which mandates GPS tracking of specified sex offenders based on their crimes against minors. The state employs 160 individuals to monitor the tracking devices via GPS tracking software, respond to violations, and make home visits if necessary.

turns out that use of GPS tracking devices do, in fact, improve teen driving habits–especially if the teenage driver is aware that there is a GPS tracker in his or her vehicle.
A new study released by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety showed that
when teens know that their driving was being monitored by their parents they
perform better behind the wheel than their non-monitored counterparts.
