These days, there’s no reason to ever “lose” your child, especially with the number of GPS tracking devices out there today.
I was doing more research for my Palm Pre’s GPS tracking system on Twitter and found out that AmberAlert has just launched its hand-sized GPS tracking system GPS 2G, specifically for tracking your kids.
It’s rather pricey at $379.99 for one of these devices and $9.99/month for the most basic tracking but I think this could be the best investment for your kids, especially if you are always working and have no time to look over your child.
Let me put it bluntly, if your child goes on missing or gets kidnapped, you will have lost someone very valuable in your life.
If you can afford it, I highly suggest you to get one of these as insurance for your kids.
On top of tracking, you can also set “safe” zones so you will be alerted if your kids go out of the safe zone. Another great feature is that you can also monitor how fast your teenager is driving their car right after they get their license.
I know this might cause some privacy issues with your growing kids but until they are legal age of 18, you are still the one in charge.
Here’s some screenshots I took from their informational PDF.
