4 GPS Tracking Applications for Consumers

GPS Tracking is now a very common due to the fact that, thanks to mass production, it is becoming more and more affordable. This also means that it is becoming available across a wide range of applications that are not only available to businesses and the military, but also consumers.

GPS Tracking devices work by transmitting co-ordinates to a network of satellites that orbit the earth. The information is then relayed back to a central computer / service provider who makes that information available to their customers and clients. The information can be overlayed onto a mapping application, such as Google Maps, which gives customers and easy to understand, graphical representation of where the device was at its last point of transmission. As the devices transmit their position on a regular basis its possible to get a near real time position of the device, along with any asset or person that the device is currently attached to.

There are a number of different things that GPS Tracking devices can be fixed to – the list is non exhaustive! It is particularly useful for items and assets of high net value especially if they are capable of moving easily.

Here is a list of four items that consumers could (or maybe should) consider GPS Tracking devices for:

Children

GPS Tracking devices are perfect for keeping track of people, especially young children who have a tendency to explore! With some service providers you will be able to setup something called a Geo Fence which will trigger alerts if the device goes past set boundaries. This is ideal when it comes to children and making sure they don’t wander too far!

Vehicles

Vehicle Tracking devices are fast becoming an essential part of motoring. By having a device fitted to your car or van you can quickly determine the location of the vehicle if it is stolen. What’s more, some insurance companies may even lower your insurance premium if a GPS Tracking device is installed

Caravans

Own a caravan? Whilst it may be sat static in your driveway for the best part of the year it is susceptible to being whisked away by someone sniffing out an opportunity. Keep track of your caravan by installing a GPS Tracking device and it will put your mind at rest knowing that you could be alerted at any unauthorized movement.

Pets

Not to be jeered at, Pet Tracking is becoming more and more popular, especially with Dogs who might tend to wander. So if you want to keep a third eye looking over the whereabouts of your pooch or mogg then a pet tracking device could be for you!

Of course the list of uses doesn’t stop at four. If it moves, and is of monetary of sentimental value to you then it might be a good move to invest in a GPS Tracking device. It might be the difference between retrieving your asset or never seeing it again!
