As kids grow up they want to move around, explore opportunities and push boundaries. So the best thing parents can gift themselves is a GPS tracking device that helps them to keep track of their kids on summer outings, in parks or keep track of their movements even when they are in school. GPS trackable devices help keep track of your child’s whereabouts without being too intrusive.
GPS trackers are trackable devices that come with dedicated mobile apps or desktop software that allows you to see the location of the tracker on a map at any time. They’re small and come in several forms, such as watches and tag-like plastic discs.
GPS tracking devices are small and tough with two main parts: a built-in GPS receiver and a cellular radio transmitter. They pinpoint their positions from the GPS satellite system then transmit location data to a server using a cellular provider’s network. This means that they require a SIM card and cellular service in order to work. Nowadays GPS receivers are also present in cars and on most smartphones.
Why Use GPS Trackable devices for Your Adventurous Kids?
Your kids are a part of you; you love them and want them to be happy and safe, wherever they are. While you can’t necessarily accompany them everywhere. Using a GPS tracker for your kids helps reassure you that they’re where they should be. In the unfortunate circumstance that your child goes missing, a tracker can help reveal where your child currently is as well as their recent travel history. Most trackers have a panic button your child can press in emergencies, and premium units even allow for two-way calls and texting.
Monitor Little Feet and Aged Parents
These trackable devices can help you monitor your children better. If you worry about your aging parents, senior citizen trackers can let you view where they are. If you have adventurous pets, pet trackers can easily be attached to their collars to let you see their current location. You can also keep tabs on your valuable possessions – like cars and recreational vehicles.

How Else Can a GPS Tracker Be Used?
These trackable devices can be used for fun too. In fact, Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. In its simplest form, a cache always contains a logbook or log sheet for you to log your find.
Larger caches may contain a logbook and any number of items. These items turn the adventure into a true treasure hunt. You never know what the cache owner or visitors to the cache may have left for you to enjoy. If you take something, leave something of equal or greater value in return. Quite often you may also find a trackable, a sort of geocaching “game piece” It’s free to play and there are geocaches EVERYWHERE! Probably there are some very close to you now.
You download the app on your phone and go search. Caches are rated by terrain and difficulty, so start with an easy one. They can be hidden in plain sight, in a cave, or up a tree. It’s great fun and makes a walk more pleasurable. Caches are in cities and countryside. Some trackables are in a race with others to travel the most miles in a year. So you get out of it what you want. I think it is where Pokemon Go got the idea from really (!).
