It would appear I once vowed to give my boy a vehicle as soon as he turned 18, which he just did and would not let me off the hook. I did not wish to break a promise although I was unsure of this one.
I discovered the SleuthGear iTrail GPS Logger while scouring the internet for a means to keep tabs on the locations of his newly scored vehicle. Wherever his car had gone, the time and speed of travel would be know to me via the vehicle tracker.
Unlike a GPS tracker that monitors vehicles in real time, a passive GPS logger like this one documents travel trails after the fact, be it a day or week later. I never intended to spy on my son every 5 minutes so this was perfect.
With the SleuthGear iTrail GPS Logger, I incur no monthly fees like I would with a GPS logging subscription that I eyed at first. Now, that is one smart but cost-efficient vehicle tracker.
I elected to buy the optional waterproof, magnetic box with which I popped the little GPS logger covertly onto the car frame. Simple. The SleuthGear iTrail GPS Logger is placed in sleep mode by an on-board motion sensor when the auto is stationary.
After two nights, I unmounted the vehicle tracker while my son was asleep and plugged the provided charging cable into the USB port on my computer. I logged into a secure IP address on the internet to look at the results so far.
Presented on the popularly simple interface of Google Maps and Google Earth, the information was not difficult to comprehend. By downloading the print-friendly version of the data, I could also alleviate my wife’s concerns.
Up to 120 hours of data can be documented constantly by the SleuthGear iTrail GPS Logger. And if I had any problem with my son attending classes, browsing skateboards, visiting his girlfriend and his granny, well, here was proof.
