A New Jersey judge recently ruled that the use of GPS trackers in an effort to track a spouse suspected of infidelity is legal. The specific case involved a woman who used a GPS tracking system placed in the glove box of her husband’s car to track his whereabouts upon the recommendation of a private investigator. After 2-weeks of covert GPS tracking, the man’s car was tracked to another woman’s driveway, where he was leaving with another woman in his car.
The judge in the appellate court case cited that the use of GPS trackers in a family-owned vehicle does not constitute an invasion of privacy, and that the suspected spouse did not drive to a location where he had a reasonable expectation of privacy.

An traditional form of transportation in India is getting a very modern upgrade with GPS tracking devices soon to be installed on autorickshaws, commonly used by commuters in Indian cities. According to Indian Express, a test group of 250 autorickshaws will be equipped with GPS tracking systems by the end of July. The GPS trackers will be monitored via GPS tracking software by transport department officials.
The GPS trackers are intended to prevent drivers from overcharging passengers, and taking longer routes than necessary. The GPS trackers also include a panic button intended for use by passengers in emergency situations so that authorities may reach them more quickly.
Here’s a great GPS news story from Australia:
A man monitoring his excavator via GPS tracking software recently watched in real-time as a thief towed away the costly piece of machinery which he had equipped with a GPS tracking device . During a trek of more than 30-miles, the GPS tracking software indicated the speed and location of the excavator as it was hauled by the tow truck. After monitoring the entire episode via real time GPS tracking on his computer, the owner of the excavator called local authorities and told them exactly where to intercept the suspect as he continued to tow the excavator. The suspect was taken into custody and the excavator was recovered without damage.
The above story is a great example of GPS tracking solutions at work for business owners. Without the GPS tracking system installed on the excavator, and the sophistication of GPS tracking software, its possible the excavator might not have been recovered, resulting in considerable loss.

Businesses and organizations of every type and size use GPS tracking systems everyday. Here are a few of the most common industries using GPS trackers to improve the way they do business.
Law Enforcement and Private Investigators: GPS tracking for law enforcement and private investigations provides a cost-effective method of vehicle tracking without the need for around-the-clock human surveilance. GPS tracking systems with motion sensors alert law enforcement officers and private investigators when a target vehicle moves. Using GPS tracking software, agencies have the capability to follow the tracked vehicle with great accuracy.
Construction Companies: With both heavy equipment, and expensive items such as air conditioners, appliances, and more at stake, construction companies use GPS tracking devices to protect the costly items they store on construction sites. GPS trackers can be placed on items such as dump trucks and bulldozers, as well as central air conditioning units and refrigerators. In the event of theft, these items are much more likely to be quickly recovered. In some cases, insurance companies offer premium discounts for items equipped with GPS.
Home Services: Business which provide in-home services, such as medical supply companies, contractors, plumbers, HVAC companies, and more often use GPS tracking devices for fleet tracking. With GPS tracking software, fleet managers have the ability to determine efficient routes, and know exactly where every vehicle is at any time of day.
Did you know that GPS tracking technology, particularly fleet tracking, can help make your business a greener business? It’s true, GPS tracking is an excellent way to make your business a greener business. Here’s how:
Reduced Fuel Consumption: GPS tracking allows you to reduce fuel consumption (and costs) through efficiency and reduced driving speeds. With GPS tracking software, business owners can easily determine the most efficient routes of travel for their drivers, determine which vehicle is in the best position to respond to service calls, and monitor employees’ driving speeds. Reduced fuel consumption equals a reduced carbon emission which means a reduced carbon footprint for your business.
Reduce Your Paper Trail: GPS tracking systems can help you achieve a paperless office through the automated reporting options offered with GPS tracking software. From automated mileage reports, service logs, and attendance monitoring, GPS tracking systems allow you to operate your business efficiently and effectively while reducing the amount of paper required.
