Mini Global GPS Tracker


chinavasion CVPL G203 1 Mini Global GPS Tracker

The Mini Global GPS Tracker can help you find anyone or anything that you might have lost any place on Earth. If youre paranoid about your child being abducted, a grandparent with Alzheimers, or having your car stolen, spending $60 will seem mere pennies to keep what you cherish safe. Those who enjoy the outdoor sports such as mountain biking and skiing now have an electronic safety net for any emergency that could arise so that they can be located within minutes instead of hours or days.

Constant track-n-trace can be performed so precise locations can be displayed on a real-time detailed map. If you do end up having something stolen such as a car or bike, all you need do is make sure your Tracker has two charged up 3.7 V batteries and is securely attached. You will then be able to locate it within 5 minutes of it being gone. There’s even an SOS button that can be pressed in emergencies. A notification will be sent out to authorized phone numbers, along with your GPS coordinates.

    I'm on a run today – I have one of these too! I bought it last year to use as a tracker for my kids while we were off camping. The device itself works quite well and battery life is reasonable, but the responses it spits back at you aren't that helpful. The company does provide a service to get a map via a url back to you, but that isn't great either as it's a static image.

    So, not wanting to give up I made a little web-app (with the help of some cheap labor via vWorker) that takes the unreadable text message the unit spits back, loads it up to the web and provides a google map with the location of the device and your location (if you are using an iPhone) too. All a bit of a hack, but it does the job!

    If you want to give the hack a go, go to http://ping4me.co.uk/MapDemo2.htm and past the text message you get back from this device into the "Destination" field (the 1st field is filled in if you let the page see your location). When you hit go, you get a google map with a blue and a red dot representing yours and the tracker's locations.
