Mobile Tracking Devices

So say you have a large family both immediate and extended who you dearly love. Perhaps some of them are teenagers who have just learned how to drive and perhaps some of them are older drivers you just want to keep tabs on for safety reasons. Whichever the reason, you know that being able to track your loved ones is very important to you, but you are unsure how to proceed.

There is a way to track them and it can be easier than calling them every five minutes. Assuming that everyone in your family has mobile phones, the matter remains very simple. There are numerous tracking devices that can be installed on each and every family phone as well as in every family vehicle. For the teenager, devices like this can be especially useful especially if they are borrowing your phone or if they are going out of an evening and you want to be sure of where they are. The same could be said for monitoring your other relatives.

The amount of security this brings is very reassuring. In the case of mobile phones, there are many apps that can be installed that will assist family members in tracking another’s whereabouts. One APP that might be of use is www.gpsfamilytracking.com. On this site, you can have access to the basic tracking system to install on your phone as well as options for enhanced or real time tracking. Another one that you check out is www.mapme.net where you can track all mobile devices for your business, or in case you need to track your family, go to www.whereareyougps.com. Here you can see activity reports, receive speed alerts and warning area notifications. Should you be unsure, you can always sign up for a free trial.

Other free apps that you can install should you have an Android device is Google Latitude which is good for tracking friends or family provided they also have the app and agree to be tracked. In this app, the user determines how much information they share.

Two other apps that could be of use are Family GPS Tracker and GPS Tracker. The former uses Facebook and Google technology to trace your family members. You can also configure this app so you can monitor safety in the area your family member is and allow them to check in with you whenever they make it safely to their destination.
