GPS trackers for your camping adventures.

Camping trips are a lot of fun, whether you go with a group of friends or your family. Spending time in the great outdoors, learning about nature, and seeing wildlife up close are all part of the joy of camping. The best part is you can go camping across the nation in numerous state and national parks. However, if you are new to camping, there are many mistakes you might make that can turn a fun trip into a chaotic mess. So this camping season, remember to have fun and avoid these four mistakes. Tracking the World is here to help! We provide reliable GPS trackers and helpful tips on how you can make the most of your camping adventures every time. 

Mistake 1: Forgetting to Do Research

When you are preparing for a camping trip, one of the worst mistakes you can make is going in without planning. If you are taking a camping trip somewhere isolated, it is imperative to get some info about where you’ll be. Camping is fun, but it can also be dangerous if you are unprepared for the environment. You should be aware of common wildlife in the area. In addition, check out current weather conditions and other factors which might pose a hazard during your trip. 

When you begin planning your adventure, start with some basic online research on fun places to hike or set up camp nearby. This will give you an idea of how long you want to go camping and the weather during your trip. 

Next, you will want to make yourself aware of the wildlife in the area. Depending on where you are, you can find anything from deer, moose, and bears to snakes, poisonous insects, foxes, and much more. Camping is about connecting with nature. However, it is also essential to be prepared for wildlife interactions that could be dangerous.  

Mistake 2: Not Packing Properly

The second mistake you can make on any excursion is to forget to pack the essentials. Camping is enjoyable when you are prepared and have everything you need to enjoy yourself safely. Flashlights, tents, waterproof gear, reliable hiking shoes, plenty of easy-to-cook/eat food, water and water purification tablets, bug spray, and sunscreen are some of the essential items you will probably want to consider on your packing list. 

Of course, the list goes on and will depend on the weather for your camping trip, as well as where you are camping. Most importantly, you need to ensure you have reliable shelter, warmth, and sustenance. If this is your first time camping, visiting your local outdoor supply store is an excellent way to find all the items you need. A store employee can help you find essential things to pack based on your interests, camping destination, and current weather patterns.

Mistake 3: Camping Without GPS Trackers

Tracking the World provides reliable GPS trackers for all your camping trips. Forgetting to bring a GPS tracker might seem like a small mistake. However, trackers can save lives and keep everyone safe on outdoor camping trips. You can implement GPS trackers to keep track of everyone. Now you can explore local trails alone or in small groups without worrying about getting lost or losing each other.

Furthermore, your GPS tracker contains a travel log, making it easy to document your steps and sites visited. When future camping trips are in your plans, you can use your GPS log to revisit past locations that you loved. If you bring your pets along on your trip, trackers can also keep a watchful eye on wandering pets. In a nutshell, GPS trackers from Tracking the World will keep the entire family safe and informed on your next camping trip. 

Mistake 4: Keeping a Messy Camp

Another mistake is to keep a messy camp. When you are camping, tidiness is essential. Dirty camps with food left out can attract wildlife. You might get more than you bargain for with a messy camp. You could wake up to raccoons to bears ravaging your campsite with improper trash disposal. In addition, a messy camp means more work for you when you are ready to move on to another site.

Take care of elderly parents with ease.

When your parents become elderly, there are many concerns you might have. Caring for elderly parents is not an easy feat on top of your work and other family responsibilities. However, there are many things you can do to help make caring for elderly parents easier, even if you live far away from them. With GPS trackers from Tracking the World, you can put your mind at ease, keep a watchful eye on your parents, and rest assured that they are always in safe hands. 

Our GPS trackers come with essential features to make keeping track of loved ones simple. But they also have different uses and components which can come in handy for taking care of elderly family members. Here are four things we recommend you need to successfully take care of your parents. Learn even more by visiting the Tracking the World website to see how a reliable GPS tracker can help you care for your entire family. 

GPS Trackers Contain Detailed Location Logs

One of the best features of GPS trackers is their detailed travel log histories. This can come in handy daily or if there is a particular reason to be concerned about the well-being of a loved one. Either way, detailed location and travel logs allow you to access the location of your loved one at any time. 

Furthermore, they allow you to review past histories of locations. You could use this in many ways when taking care of an elderly parent. For example, say they live independently but you are concerned about them going to the doctor regularly or forgetting to drive to the store. In these instances, all you have to do is check their travel log, and you’ll know if you need to step in or if everything is fine.

GPS Trackers with Emergency Call Services

If you’re keeping track of elderly family members, anything to help you stay at ease is a bonus. Tracking the World offers GPS tracking devices that come with emergency call service features. This is helpful for parents who live on their own, live far away, or spend a great deal of time in the house on their own. 

We want to be there for our loved ones 24/7 as they age, but the reality is we have to work, care for others, and run errands. Now you no longer have to worry about your elderly parents getting injured and not receiving the help they need if you are out and about. With Tracking the World’s GPS tracking devices with emergency call services, help is always just a quick click away. Now your loved ones can go on walks or stay home independently, and you can know that their GPS tracker has their back.

Reliable Fall-Down Alerts

Another integral feature of many of Tracking the World’s GPS trackers is fall-down alerts. These work by detecting when someone falls and allowing them to call emergency services if needed. Sometimes, individuals have trouble getting back up after they fall. Plus, the elderly are more susceptible to broken bones or severely injuring themselves should they fall. Now, with Tracking the World in your pocket, you can rest assured that your parents are constantly being cared for. 

Patience and Reliability

The last thing you need to take care of your parents comes in two parts.

Memphis Police Using GPS Tracking to Fight Domestic Violence

Memphis is in investing $900-thousand dollars in the fight against domestic violence. The funds will be used to purchase around 800 tracking devices to help the police track offenders and protect would-be or former victims. With around 18-percent of the city’s murders attributed to domestic violence, the hope is that the use of GPS tracking devices will reduce the overall number of homicides in the city.

GPS Tracking Reveals Seagull Habits

Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 3.19.13 PM

We’re always looking for unusual and creative use of GPS tracking devices, and happened across this.  A British study utilized GPS trackers and GPS tracking software to monitor the movement of seagulls in St. Ives resort.  What’s interesting is that the results showed that all 4 seagulls tracked had very different habits– with some flying out to sea, and others foraging for food on nearby farmland.  The tracking devices tracked the seagulls for a combined total of more than 20,000 miles.

Next year, and the launch of the first of more than 30 GPS III satellites marks the beginning of GPS III.  The new satellites boast increased security and better tracking. Perhaps one of the most impressive features is “spot beaming”, a way of creating a localized area of increased power for military use.

OBD GPS Tracking Device

 

 

Information on the WorldTracker OBD

Ideal for both beginners and GPS tracking pros, the WorldTracker OBD offers our most convenient GPS tracking device for added family vacation safety, and monitoring teen drivers on summer vacation and even year-round. With a limited time price of just $119*, the WorldTracker OBD is both an affordable and smart option–with professional-grade results.

 GPS Tracking Software Dashboard

As car accidents remain the leading cause of death for U.S. teens, TrackingTheWorld is reminding parents of the benefits of GPS tracking devices to monitor teenage driving habits for both safety and peace of mind during prom and graduation season.

“Real time vehicle trackers allow parents to know where their teen’s vehicle is at all times, how fast it is moving, and even alert them to harsh driving such as sudden braking,” said Gilbert Walz, CEO of TrackingTheWorld, a firm exclusively specializing in tracking devices and GPS tracking software for more than 11-years.

For monitoring teenage drivers, TrackingTheWorld recommends its EnduroPro tracker, a compact real time tracking device which is easy to install and operate. The device can simply be placed in the vehicle’s glove compartment or under a seat, and can be magnetically mounted using TrackingTheWorld’s affordable MiniMag case.

With GPS tracking software services and an Internet connection, the EnduroPro also allows parents to create geo-fences, a set of pre-determined boundaries, for their teen.  If the vehicle moves outside of the boundary, the tracker will immediately transmit an alert notifying the parents via programmed cell phone numbers.  As added safety feature, the EnduroPro also comes equipped with a panic button which, when pressed, will automatically alert parents or other family members through a rapid series of location alerts, indicating that the teen needs emergency assistance.

Founded in 2003, TrackingTheWorld is based in Burlingame, California, and offers a broad selection of GPS tracking devices and accessories and tracking services.  For more information about GPS tracking systems for teenage drivers, or to purchase GPS trackers directly from TrackingTheWorld distributors, visit www.trackingtheworld.com.

 

GPS Tracking Software Dashboard

If you’re a business owner with even a small fleet of vehicles, you’re certainly aware of how much time and energy is invested into tracking the mileage on your company vehicles.  Manual mileage logging and then data entry of the information required to create a useable report is inefficient, frustrating and time consuming, and you still have no way of knowing whether your company vehicles are being misused by employees.

As a solution for tedious mileage reporting, TrackingTheWorld GPS tracking software offers automated reporting options, eliminating the need for manual logging, plus other features to assure the proper use of your company vehicles.  For example, our tracking software offers geo-fencing which automatically sends alerts via cell phone or email to let you know when a company vehicle leaves a predetermined area.  With the use of real time GPS tracking devices for company vehicles you’ll also be alerted to harsh driving patterns.  GPS trackers are also ideal for providing an additional level of security for employees, with some models offering a panic alert button, which automatically launches a rapid series of location alerts to preset phone numbers and email addresses.

If you’re considering purchasing GPS tracking devices for your company vehicles, check out TrackingTheWorld’s broad range of GPS tracking devices for vehicle tracking and optional accessories on our products page at http://www.trackingtheworld.com/products/ or  buy GPS devices now through our distributors listed here:  www.trackingtheworld.com/distributors/.

GPS tracking law enforcement

According to a 2014 study released by the Yale Law Journal, using GPS tracking for covert tracking operations for law enforcement departments is incredibly less expensive than utilizing officers for covert tracking operations.  In fact, the study estimated the cost of GPS tracking to be 1000 times more affordable than tracking vehicles the old fashioned way, with officers trailing behind their target in unmarked vehicles.

In the study, the cost comparisons are dramatic– covert tracking using the standard 5 car surveillance box strategy is estimated to cost $275 dollars per hour, yet the cost of GPS tracking for law enforcement covert tracking can range from just 36-cents to around $5 per hour.

GPS tracking for law enforcement has been described as a “game changer” in the law enforcement community for both its cost effectiveness and the number of vehicles that can be tracked simultaneously.

The study included both cell phone GPS tracking units, and GPS tracking systems mounted to target vehicles.

GPS tracking software school bus

Portage Township Schools on the southeast side of Lake Michigan  recently installed GPS trackers on all 110 buses in the school’s fleet.  Added as a measure of convenience for both parents and administration, the program was given a “test drive” during summer school to prepare for the beginning of the 2014 school year.

Using GPS tracking software on computers or smart phones, parents and faculty are able to see the exact location of any bus at any time–even on field trip days–  While the new GPS tracking system will most assuredly offer parents peace of mind that their child made it to school safely, officials also hope it will be an added convenience for parents of children whose buses are running late.  With tracking software, parents will have detailed information on when the bus can be expected, hopefully eliminating the need to call the school officials.

School administration also hopes to use the system to conserve fuel and maintain efficiency by rerouting buses when traffic incidents occur.
