GPS Tracking - Why you shouldnt leave home without one!

By: Beth Gabriel

What is GPS?
GPS stands for Global Positioning System. High above us, there are a group of 24 satellites orbiting the earth constantly providing information to tell us the map location (latitude and longitude) of a car or other vehicle. It also tells us how fast the vehicle is traveling and in what direction.

How is GPS Tracking Information Helpful?
• For parents, it takes some of the worry out of your kids driving long distances home from college. You know where they are and when to expect them home.

• For parents of teenagers, you never have to wonder if your son or daughter is where they say they are. No more late night phone calls asking – “Where are you?"
• For baby-boomers, the shoe is on the other foot - it helps to take some of the worry out of your elderly parents driving home from vacation or just driving around town.

You know where they are and this allows them to be more independent.
