Most of us believe that GPS is only for navigation. However, using various devices and applications based on GPS, you can use this technology to locate things and people. ET shows how you can follow everything that is important to you.

Tied To The Family

There would be times when you would like to accompany family members or let them know where you are. The easiest way is to use the integrated GPS of your phone combined with the function Find my phone (Find my iPhone for iOS users, Find your phone on Android) to locate a person on a map. Remember that you would need the Google ID / Apple ID to access these details.

If you do not want to share your Apple / Google ID, you can use other free applications. Family Locator by Life 360 is a free application for Android and iOS that allows you to see where each member of the family is in the application. You make a particular circle in the application with yourself and with other members of the family, and you can even put the local share in the automatic for constant use. The application allows you to converse with other people in the circle individually or in a group. Another application without costumes that you can experience is the Glympse (free for Android and iOS). It allows you to send a “Gore” through the application and how long the person can track using the application.

For Your Pets

There are dedicated GPS trackers available for your pets. The Tracksafe Buddy dog collar (Rs 9,000) uses GPS and GPRS to track your pet and even allows you to create green. There is also the option of a way to connect so that you can hear the surrounding noise, if necessary. The price includes the first 12 months of the subscription service.

You can also look at the GPS Tagg pet tracker on Amazon for Rs 9,500. It can work for most pets, as it connects to the collar and allows you to see your pet’s location in real time on a map. It even tracks the activity of your pets and rests to get an overview of your health.

An Eye On Young And Old

If you do not feel comfortable giving a phone to children or tracing very elderly people through applications, you can get a small GPS tracker, such as TrackID or LetsTrack Personal, to keep an eye on them. With a price of Rs 6,000 and above, these are GPS + GSM compact trackers and ready for use that can be placed in a bag or imprisoned in clothes.

You can monitor the location of the tracker in any browser, configure geo-fences (security zones) and be alerted via SMS when it is violated. Keep in mind that there is a monthly subscription fee also involved that differs from device to device.

Find Stolen Vehicles
The LetsTrack Bike Series is designed exclusively for two-wheelers and the price includes a one-year signature. You can get real-time information about the details of your vehicles, plus parking notification, speeding alarm, mileage details and location history in 24 hours. You can define a geofence so that, if your vehicle leaves the authorized area, you are notified.

There is also an internal battery that allows the device to track the location for up to three hours, even if the vehicle is not connected. After the first year, the annual signature is Rs 1,200.

Look For These Keys

Most of us have already been in situations where we can not find keys, glasses, wallets, pen drives and other items of daily need in the house. Instead of searching the entire house, you can use a compact Bluetooth tag tracker. These trackers are usually small (as large as a coin) and can easily be trapped or trapped in most objects.

You can use an application on your smartphone to locate the label at home. We recommend that you see the Portronics Tring (Rs 579), the Nut mini (Rs 1.340) or the Find by SenseGiz (Rs 1.899),
