A few years back, I bought a car. It was the apple of my eye, and the envy of all my friends. It ran smooth and fast and looked worth a million bucks. So be it, as I I had spent a fortune on it, saving every penny I could day after day, just for that car.

Unfortunately, one fine Wednesday evening, I went to the parking lot to find my precious vehicle missing. Some very capable car-jackers had managed to break through the state-of-the-art security system of the car and managed to drive off with it. I registered a complaint with the police department, and hired a private investigator. They tried their best, but the car just couldn t be recovered.

That s when a friend of mine asked me why didn’t I install GPS in my car. In retrospect, I should have done that. But then, nothing good ever comes of crying over spilt milk.

GPS tracking devices are certainly a boon for those who want to protect what s precious to them. GPS tracking devices implement the system of global positioning to track and find living things or an object’s exact location. The GPS tracking element can be fixed to anything – a person, a vehicle, an object, an animal, the possibilities are endless.

How does it help?, you may ask.

Well, imagine that one day, just like me, you lose your car to a bunch of car thieves. The advantage that having a GPS tracking device installed in your vehicle provides is that with a click of a button you can locate exactly where your car has been taken. That s true, it gives you the exact pin point location of your stolen object. All that is to be then done is to inform the authorities, and they can take the necessary steps to recover your car and nab the culprits. As easy as A, B and C!

The magic of GPS doesn t end just there.

When it comes to relationships, marriage and morals, our generation won t rank too high on the charts. Instances of cheating spouses, swindling employees are a dime a dozen.

What do you do when you suspect that you could be a victim of one of the above? Hire a private detective to tail the suspicious character? You could do that, but that is sure to burn a huge hole in your pocket.

The easier and safer route is to put your suspicions to rest by ascertaining the facts yourself. Do it like the professionals. GPS tracking devices can be easily planted on clothes, bags, shoes and the like. The small size of the device also ensures that it goes by discreet and unnoticed. Sitting before a computer screen, you can then track the suspicious party and confront them. Also, they can t lie to you, the evidence is in plain sight for all to see.

And then there s the issue of pesky pets. We love them, we care for them but now and again they always go missing. These missing pet woes can now be easily guarded again by installing a GPS device in your pet s collar.
