Since the day our children are born we take responsibility for them, worry about them and nurture them in the hopes that they will survive childhood and go on to lead successful and rewarding lives. This is the job of everyone who accepts the mantle of being a parent. When your kids are small and you have total control over most of the things they do and the places they go. Once they have a driver’s license in hand that element of control is gone and in its place it a feeling of nothing but pure worry as you are left to wonder where they are going, where they have been and if they are safe. The GPS Vehicle Tracker is designed to alleviate some of this worry.
There is a very definite feeling of freedom for any teen that gets there license and can finally get in the car without having to deal with mom or dad sitting in the passenger seat watching their every move. Some teenagers take this freedom with a large dose of responsibility, others tend to take it as sign that they are now free to act like they are driving at Talladega instead of on the public highways. The problem for most parents is that you have no idea which type of teenage driver you have unless you are using some form of vehicle tracking that will let you keep a close eye on what they are doing.
You can’t always be in the passenger seat with your teenage driver and you certainly can’t always follow behind them either. At the same time you really don’t want to find out that your 17 year old son was doing 110 mph in a 35mph zone when he was pulled over when he calls you from jail or that your teenage daughter has wrapped the car around a phone pole because she was speeding and speed texting at the same time when the hospital calls you. While a GPS vehicle tracking device you may be able to prevent these and many other accidents.
How does the GPS Vehicle Tracker from Go Tracker work? This has to be one of the easiest safety devices on the road today. Once you sign up for the service, you will receive a GPS tracking device in the mail. This small device is plugged into the OBD II diagnostics connector that is located under the dashboard on the driver’s side of any vehicle manufactured from the 1990s on. The connector is where the technicians plug the diagnostic computer into your car when the check engine light comes on to see what the problem is.
Once the vehicle tracking device is plugged in, it is active and will remain so for as long as it is plugged in unless the battery in the car is dead. You will be required to set up an online account that will then establish a link to the GPS vehicle tracking unit. After you have done this, you will be able to see, in real time, where the vehicle is. Not only this, but because this is a live satellite feed, you will be able to see if the car is moving, how fast it is going and where it is going.
Now you will always be able to keep an eye on your teen when they are out in the car. To make it even better, you can use the online software and map to create an electronic boundary so that you are notified by text or email when your teen drives into areas of town that you do not want him in. Imagine his shock when you call him on his cell phone to tell him that you know where he is and that he has not been obeying the speed limits.
While using a GPS tracking device might seem like an invasion of privacy to some, when you stop and look at the ever increasing number of teens who are seriously injured or killed in automobile accidents every year, this small invasion can easily prove to be one of the best investments you have ever made.
While your teen might not completely appreciate the fact that you can see where they are, where they have been and how they are driving, you are likely to find that the peace of mind that goes with a GPS vehicle tracking device can give you is well worth it. At Go Track Inc. our GPS tracking device can help take some of the worry out of being the parent of a teenager who is finally out on his own in the family car or even in his own car.
