Does GPS tracking teenage drivers really make them better drivers? According to a recent study, the answer is YES. While some parents may feel awkward using GPS tracking to monitor their child’s driving habits, it
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.
If you’re looking for a GPS tracker for a teenager, we recommend the Enduro Pro GPS Tracking Device, and sharing with your teen that the tracker is in his or her vehicle. Read more about the Enduro Pro GPS Tracker.

GPS tracking systems are proving to be beneficial to the environment through their help in exposing and preventing illegal garbage dumping. The following details GPS tracking systems installed in garbage trucks in Abu Dhabi.
About 85-percent of garbage collection trucks in Abu Dhabi emirate are equipped with GPS tracking transmitters. It seems that the simple addition of a GPS tracking systems has resulted in radical, and much improved, changes in
the amount of waste that is dumped at improper locations.
Before the installation of the GPS tracking systems, illegal
dumping was a serious issue, including complaints about collection trucks dumping sewage water into deserts in the
Western Region. This dumping was a serious problem, as it was contaminating local farms.
It is reported that the GPS tracking systems have significantly recucedthe number of complaints within the area.

Here on our GPS tracking blog, we’ve often discussed the benefits of GPS tracking systems for kids, including GPS tracking for teenage drivers, GPS tracking for school buses, and GPS tracking systems for child security. According to a recent news article, daycares in Sweden are now utilizing GPS tracker devices for keeping track of students on outings.
Some of the GPS trackers used in Swededn are incorporated into special vests worn over each child’s clothing. The GPS tracking vests allow teachers to view all students on one screen and quickly be aware of students tempted to wander away from the group.
While some parents and other cite concerns of GPS tracking devices replacing staff members, daycares insist the GPS trackers are used as an added measure of security implemented in the best interest of the children.

A New York Department of Labor employee is suing his previous employer for
planting a GPS tracking device on his personal vehicle. The man, who
was fired in August of 2010 for suspected time-sheet violations, is suing
the New York Department of Labor for implanting a GPS device in his car in
2008 while he was at work. The data from this device was a major factor in his
The man and the ACLU have filed a petition against the state. Currently the
matter awaits a ruling in the NY state appeals court.
The device was actually installed by the Inspector General’s office. However,
the New York branch of the ACLU cites that the covert GPS tracking system violates the state’s constitution.
Train riders in parts of India are going to get a serious upgrade to their
train system. A new GPS tracking-based passenger information system, known as the
Satellite Imaging for Rail Navigation (SIMRAN) system, will soon be giving them
real time information on the location of trains. The GPS tracking systems will be installed in the Mumbai and Howrah Rajdhanis lines. The type of information available will include the exact location, the speed and the estimated arrival time of trains, based on this information.
The system will begin with four select trains as a pilot program, though
private testing has taken place. If the system turns out to be a success it
could be installed in over 8,000 trains that connect to 8,177 stations. The
system could, in time, replace a human-managed system that relies on phone calls.

If the idea of being tracked by big brother makes you uneasy, then what about the
idea of being tracked by someone who is much closer to home…your husband or wife! The NJ state
appellate court has recently ruled in favor of allowing one spouse to utilize GPS tracking systems
to track his spouse.
The case that started this curious ruling revolves around one Mr. Kenneth Villanova
and his ex-wife’s sneaking suspicious that he was stepping out with another
lady. With the help of a private detective, and the GPS tracker unit he implanted in
their shared vehicle, Mrs. Villanova was able to obtain the proof that he was
less than faithful.
Mr. Villanova’s suit again his now ex-wife, for breach of privacy in use of the GPS tracking systems, was dismissed as
having no grounds, as he had no expectations of privacy on public streets.
The U.S. Air Force is set to receive a set of two A2100 composite satellite
structures and the first ship set of propellant tanks for the GPS III
satellites. These deliveries, which represent use of enhanced GPS tracking technology,
is only the first part in a much larger project in GPS tracking systems.
The GPS III structure is made from a composite material that is lightweight and
high-strength, which makes it ideal for integration into military hardware. The
GPS III satellites are expected to deliver navigation that is three times more
accurate than current GPS tracker systems in place. It will also have advanced anti-jam
capabilities, making it more predictable in hostile areas.
Good news for the rest of us, since the system will also be adding a new
international civil signal (L1C) that is designed to work with existing GPS tracking
systems. Just don’t expect to see results until after the project is completed in
Unsafe drinking water is a leading cause of disease and death, and is considerable world health issue. A new GPS tracking device known as the Water Canary, tests any water sample to evaluate its safety and then pinpoint the user’s location via GPS tracking. The result is a solution for allowing individuals to determe if their water source is safe and crowd sourcing to alert officials to “bad water” areas via GPS tracking technology.
While currently hand-constructed at around $100 each, the goal is to mass produce the canary yellow water sampler GPS tracking units and provide them to at-risk areas/individuals at no charge.

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.
