Different Types Of GPS Trackers

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a useful technology that comes in handy in various ways. It can be used to find out exactly where you are in the world, it can be used to get you to point A to point B, it can be used to track someone and find out where they are, and GPS is also a useful tool to keep your valuable possessions in your possession in case they are ever stolen.

Just as there are several uses for GPS, there are also several kinds of GPS trackers for different circumstances, devices and even pets such as dogs and cats.

What is GPS?

For any who are wondering, GPS stands for Global Positioning Satellite. Its a satellite-based system of navigation that utilizes a network of 24 satellites in the Earths orbit placed by the U.S. Department of Defense. Originally it was conceived for military use only, but in the 1980s it was made available for civilian use. GPS works 24 hours a day and in any kind of weather conditions.

 

GPS Trackers for Dogs, Cats and Other Pets

Sometimes our pets like to go off on their own rather than waiting for us to take them out for a walk to explore the neighborhood and stretch their legs. GPS trackers for pets can be attached to their collars. While all pet GPS trackers can find your pet, there are some that even show their velocity so that you know how fast they are moving and in what direction. One of the problems with this kind of tracker is that if the pets collar is ever removed or damaged, the purpose of the tracker is rendered useless.

GPS Trackers for Cars

GPS trackers for cars are useful for those who live in a high crime area or for law enforcement and private investigators who want to track someone without having to physically tail them and run the risk of being spotted. These kinds of GPS trackers can be attached to bumpers, on the underside of the car, slipped discreetly into the glove department or under the seat. There are certain difficulties associated with these kinds of trackers in the event that they fall from the bumper or from underneath the car.
