You may be wondering what benefits you and your family can get from investing in a multi-purpose GPS tracking device. The answer is many! With a multi-purpose GPS, families can track many different things, from pets to vehicles. Every family can benefit from purchasing a multi-purpose GPS tracker. Here are a few ways to use the tracker.

Track People

First, the GPS tracking device can be used to track people. This can be helpful in numerous situations. For example, your brother is embarking on a summer adventure to hike the Appalachian Trail. A GPS tracker can help you to see his exact location and to know that he is safely on the trail. Another example involves lone workers. Your son works the night shift as a security guard at a factory. He is the only worker on-site. Set up geo-fence boundaries and be alerted if he leaves a designated area. In addition, the device has an SOS/emergency alarm that the son can press if he is in danger. This helps loved ones ease their worries about a lone-worker situation.

Track Assets

Another way a GPS tracking device can be used is to keep track of assets. This is helpful to locate assets whether they are locked away in storage or being moved. Keep track of your valuables and their exact location with a GPS tracking device.

Track Pets

Multi-purpose GPS tracking devices can also be used to keep track of pets. The Enduro Plus model is perfect for this.  It is small and can be attached to your dog’s collar. This can be helpful if your family owns a lot of land and your dog roams free during the day. Easily check up on their location to know that they are safe.  A GPS tracker can also be helpful for dogs that have a tendency to run away from home.

Track Vehicles

Family vehicles can also be tracked using a multi-purpose GPS tracking device. Place the tracker inside the car in order to track the location of the vehicle. This can be helpful if family members are taking the car on a long trip to see exactly where they are located. It can also give vehicle owners assurance that if for some reason their car were to be stolen, they could easily track it down.

Multi-purpose GPS tracking devices are an important asset for every family to own.  They can be used to provide location tracking services on a variety of different things including people, assets, pets, and vehicles.

A GPS tracking device can come in handy in many different situations. GPS tracking devices can be used to locate vehicles, assets, or people. It can be very reassuring to know that your belongings or loved ones are safe and that you can access their location at any given time. It’s also a good idea to purchase some accessories to go along with your GPS tracker. Here are a few accessory options that will complement your device.

Cases

A case is an important accessory to protect your GPS tracking device. Two cases designed to protect the Enduro products are the Mini Mag Plus and the Mini Mag Pro.  Both of these cases use a strong magnet for mounting. They are also lightweight and waterproof. The Pelican series is also for Enduro products but contains an external battery. Pelican cases are crushproof, dustproof, and watertight. It’s critical to invest in a protective case as your GPS tracker is a valuable asset and needs to be kept safe from damage.

Batteries and Battery Packs

If you are purchasing a case with an external battery, don’t forget that you also need to purchase the external battery. Pick between a flat battery, 6-cells battery, and 8-cells battery based on which case you have. You may also want to consider purchasing a battery pack, which contains a rechargeable lithium battery, as well as a charger, connector cable, and in some cases a flat battery.

Cables/Chargers

Cables and chargers are other good accessories to have. They allow users to efficiently charge their GPS tracking devices.  There are various models of cables and chargers available. The Hardwire Kit connects the Enduro plus products to vehicle supply. The connector cable connects the Enduro plus products to external batteries. Car chargers allow users to charge their GPS products while they are in their car. Lastly, the battery charger charges external batteries. Keep a cable or charger near the GPS tracker so that it does not suddenly die.

Whether you own a personal GPS tracking device or a device to track vehicles or assets, you will need accessories to go along with it. A case will help protect the device from damage. Other accessories such as batteries, battery packs, cables, and chargers help make sure the trackers are charged and ready to go when needed.  Contact Tracking the World today to explore more accessory options to go along with your GPS tracking device.

 

 

A personal GPS tracking device is a great way to keep track of kids on spring break vacation. Rest assured knowing that your child is safe.

Spring break is a time where many college students go on vacation. Often, parents are left home to worry about where their kids are and if they are safe. An easy way to keep track of your child is through a personal GPS tracking device. These devices are small and can be worn discreetly. Parents can rest assured knowing that their child is safe on their spring break while the child can enjoy their vacation without having to constantly check in with their parents. Here are a few ways that a personal GPS tracker can help you to be safe during a spring break vacation.

GPS Position Report

The GPS positioning feature on a personal GPS tracking device is extremely important. It allows users to track a person using a scheduled GPS position report with cell-ID reporting. This is helpful for spring breakers on all types of trips. Track your child as they hike the Appalachian trail, explore New York City, or relax at the beach. The GPS is highly sensitive and accurate, making it extremely dependable.

Geo-fence Boundary Crossings

Geo-fence boundaries are a great way to track a person. This is an especially helpful feature if you are tracking someone who is going on a spring break hiking adventure. Prior to the trip, set the boundaries that the hiker is expected to stay in. If, at any point, they cross those boundaries, users back home will be alerted. This helps family members make sure their loved ones are staying on track during their hiking trip.

Emergency Alerts and Alarms

The personal GPS tracking device provides users with many different emergency alert features. For example, the device has a man down alert that will let users know if their loved one has fallen. This is an important feature for those adventurous spring breakers who are hiking or doing other outdoor activities during their vacation. Another important alert is the geo-fence boundary alert as mentioned above. The device also includes a low battery alert. This allows users to know when they need to charge their device. Lastly, the GPS device has an SOS button which allows users to set off an emergency alarm. This is an important feature that can be activated in the case of an emergency or dangerous situation.

With a personal GPS tracking device, parents no longer have to lose sleep while their child is on spring break vacation. The devices allow monitoring of position and geo-fence boundaries and are also equipped with emergency alerts and alarms.

A personal GPS tracking device is beneficial to many different types of people. Seniors, lone workers, hikers, and solo travelers are four types of people who could benefit from a personal GPS tracker.

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 software school bus

As part of a school assignment to develop a new business , a group of Costa Mesa students have developed a GPS tracker to aid those with Alzheimer’s and other disabilities.  Inspired by another student with a disability, the students will be presenting their company, Gotect, and their device in a contest judged by Wall Street bankers with hopes of finding investors.  As they prepare for their trip to New York City, the students are still raising the $20,000 required to attend.

GPS tracking pill bottles

As the abuse of prescription drugs, especially prescription painkillers such as Oxycontin, is on the rise, pharmacy owners and law enforcement are using GPS tracking as a deterrent and a tool for tracking pharmacy thieves. Placed inside prescription medication bottles, the mini GPS trackers inside remain inactivated until motion is detected, allowing pharmacies to stock the “dummy bottles” alongside the real thing in case of a robbery.  Upon sensing motion, the GPS tracking device–pill bottle– activates and is trackable using GPS tracking software, allowing authorities to quickly and easily locate it and possibly the suspect.  Cleverly designed, some prescription drug bottle GPS trackers are weighted and even rattle when shaken, allowing them to blend in with actual prescriptions without being noticed.

 

covert GPS semi

LandLine Magazine recently reported that a covert GPS tracking device allowed police in Florida to track and recover a tractor trailer containing clothing items.  The trailer was stolen as it sat unattended in a truck stop parking lot.   The retail shipment, abandoned by the thieves suspected to be monitoring police traffic,  was tracked to a location only 30 miles from where it was stolen.  According to the article, Florida has the highest percentage of cargo theft, clothing theft adds up to more than $300,000 per year, and  approximately 85% of thefts occur due to rigs left running and unattended by their drivers.

“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.

 Time to first fix for the Enduro Pro is 29-seconds from a cold start, and less than one second from a hot start.

If  you’ve read many posts on this blog, we often post about the benefits of GPS ankle bracelets for people at risk for wandering away or becoming the victim of exploitation or violence.  Here’s a great story about how a GPS tracking wrist bracelet aided authorities in locating a mentally disabled man who had wondered away from home.

As a part of Project Lifesaver, a program launched by the Sarasota Police Department several years ago, the disabled man is one of 75 people considered at risk for wandering provided with GPS tracking bracelets.  Participants include adults with dementia and other disabilities as well as children with autism and Down’s Syndrome.

The rescued man was safely recovered near Caspersen Beach, approximately two miles from his home.  Authorities partially credit the use of the GPS tracking device for saving the man’s life, as it allowed them to locate him before the tide came in, which the man likely would not have survived.
