Tracking people, such as your children, spouse, or employees sounds easier, but ask anyone who has done it and it has never been easier. These GPS tracking devices gather data regarding your location which you can either view in real-time or to be downloaded later.
However, in order to be completely effective, they need to stay out of sight. You also need to effectively conceal it because it can cause commotion when the person mistakes it for something else.
Some of the most common places to hide it is under the dashboard, the trunk, the glove compartment, pedals, or the car exteriors. The problem with these places is that they can be easily detected. In some cases, like under the car pedal, it can lead to a serious injury.
Thus, the best places to hide it are those which are very accessible and safe yet not ordinary. That means you have to think outside the box, such as in a window scraper, under a floor mat in the back of the car, or any place that corresponds to the driving habits of the person you are tracking.
You should also consider that the person you’re tracking does not only drive, but also walk; thus, you have to think how the GPS device can stay with them for the rest of the day. Some of the best tracking devices are small and fit perfectly inside jacket or coat linings, under bike seats, or inside the pockets.
You can also put it inside a woman’s purse which can come in handy in the absence of a mobile phone. For your children, what better way than to attach it in your children’s backpack to easily locate them quickly.
If you are the owner of a business retail, placing GPS trackers in important packages can save you a lot of money because it is easier to locate stolen goods and prevent theft through them. Other places where you can hide them is in a boat or motorcycle. It can also be placed inside a construction site to protect heavy equipment or items from getting stolen.
