When considering GPS tracking devices, we often think of tracking vehicles or assets. GPS trackers can also be used to track people. If you are someone you know is vulnerable or in a remote situation, invest in a personal GPS tracking device to increase safety. Here are four types of people who could benefit from a personal GPS tracker.

Seniors

If you have an elderly parent who lives alone or in a nursing home, you may want to purchase a personal GPS tracker for them. The tracker will allow users to see if the senior has left the set geo-fence boundaries. It also includes a man down alert which is crucial for seniors who are at risk of falling. GPS tracking for seniors can be especially important for those struggling with Alzheimer’s. Rest assured that the senior citizen in your life is safe by tracking them with a personal GPS device.

Lone Workers

Many people have jobs where they are working completely by themselves. If something were to happen to the worker, no one would know. Giving workers a personal GPS tracker allows a company to keep track of their workers and know if they need to respond to an emergency. This type of device is good for all lone workers such as nighttime security guards, maintenance workers, or truck drivers.

Hikers

Hiking can be a fun, but lonely activity. If you have a hiking adventurer in your family, it is time to buy them a personal GPS tracking device. This device will help you to relax knowing that you can track the exact location of your hiker. Geo-fence boundaries can be set to let users know if the hiker has gone elsewhere. A personal GPS tracker is especially important for lone hikers completing long trips such as hiking the Appalachian Trail.

Solo Travelers

Traveling alone can be an enjoyable, self-empowering experience, but it can also come with risks. Solo travelers should always wear a personal GPS tracking device so that their loved ones back at home can keep tabs on them. Work with a family member to set geo-fence boundaries before the trip. This way if something were to happen, a family member could easily be alerted that the hiker had crossed over their set boundaries.

Personal GPS trackers are small and easy to travel with. Anyone from a senior to a solo traveler can benefit from a personal GPS tracking device that is being watched by a loved one. Contact Tracking the World today for more information about personal GPS trackers.

GPS tracking is very important for those who love to explore the outdoors. Put your mind at ease by purchasing a GPS tracker to protect your safety.

Before you head off on your next outdoor adventure, consider purchasing a GPS tracker. Whether you are hiking in the Alps or camping in the Rockies, rest assured knowing that your friends and family can easily detect your location via a personal GPS tracking device. This device is small, easy to carry around, and designed to keep people safe during outdoor expeditions. Here are a few things to look for when getting a GPS tracker to help you explore the great outdoors.

Safety Features

Safety is the number one concern when exploring the outdoors.  Whether you are alone, or with a group, getting a GPS tracker is an easy way to protect yourself as you explore. The GPS tracker should have an SOS/Emergency button. If anything were to happen, the user can easily press this button to let others know that something is wrong. Another important feature is the ability to set geo-fence boundaries. Boundaries can be set prior to the trip, and followers will be notified if the person steps out of the boundaries. A third important feature is fall detection. With activities such as hiking or rock climbing, falls are always a risk. This feature uses an accelerometer to set off a notification when the user has fallen.

Can Withstand the Outdoors

While safety features are important, first you must make sure that the GPS tracking device can handle the outdoor conditions you will be traveling in. Find a tracker that can function at extremely low and high temperatures. Explore Death Valley or the Arctic Circle knowing that your GPS tracker can handle the extreme heat or cold. Another necessary feature for withstanding outdoor adventures is a long battery life. Pick a tracker that has low power consumption and long standby time. Long battery life is essential to users going on extended outdoor trips.

Tracking Device/Phone Combination

Pick a tracking device that also works as a safety phone. Cell phones are very unreliable in certain outdoor settings which is why it is extremely important to have a safety phone built into your GPS tracker. Some devices allow inbound SMS messaging and a limited number of phone numbers in your address book. Before you depart, save the most important phone numbers to the device in case you need to reach family and friends quickly due to an emergency.

A GPS tracking device should be on your packing list for any outdoor adventure. Carrying a tracker instills a sense of safety in users as they go out on exciting expeditions. The device also allows friends and family to sleep easier knowing that they can track the location of their loved one and will be alerted if there is trouble.  Contact Tracking the World to learn more about our personal tracking devices and how they can be useful to your outdoor adventures.
