PocketFinder®: GPS Location Devices for Peace of Mind

Photobucket

As a mom I understand how important it is to be able to track and know where your child is at all times.

Right now my little one spends almost all of his time right by my side but what about when he starts school? or when he stays with a babysitter instead of family for the first time?

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to see in real time where your child is and set an alert when his or her location is suddenly changed using customizable zones and speed limits?

Well, I am now going to introduce you to a line of GPS location devices that allow you to keep track of your family, pets and vehicle all from your own cellphone or personal computer.  The PocketFinder® line of devices include personal, pets and vehicle GPS finders that are small and easy to carry/install.

I received both a personal and a vehicle GPS finder to try out and I found them both extremely useful.  I like that you can locate the devices at anytime from almost anywhere through the internet and how easy it is to navigate both the website and the Iphone/Ipad PocketFinder app. It is really amazing to be able to immediately see an accurate location in a map that shows you a street view right from you phone.

Here are some of my favorite features of the PocketFinder® Personal GPS locator:

-Made to last: The device is made with military-strength plastic that allows it to be child, water, impact, laundry machine, dryer, pool, dirt and heat proof.

-Alert Delivery: You can set up geographical zones and speed limits and receive alerts via text message, e-mail and mobile device when the device is out of the set zones or above the speed limit.

-Size: The device is the size of an Oreo cookie and it is very light so it is easy to carry and use, plus it charges fast.  It also comes with a  silicone case and hook for wearing it on your clothes or purse//bag.

-Low monthly fee and no contracts: Only $12.95 a month.

Here are some of my favorite features of the PocketFinder® vehicle GPS locator:

-Peace of Mind: Do you have a teenage driver or soon to be driver at home?  There is nothing like being able to locate your loved one at any time, plus having the device helps making them feel safe.

-Zone and Speed Alerts: You can receive alerts when the driver exceeds speed limits and exits/enters set geographic zones.  That helps keep young drivers safe.

-Great for businesses: Do you own a business? Identify inactivity and increase safety for your drivers plus manage multiple devices on a single account.

-Easy to Install: Mount the device to the car by connecting it to the battery in minutes.

-Low monthly fee and no contracts: Only $12.95 a month.

I have been using both units and I find them very useful and extremely easy to use. When I go for a drive with my little one in the winter I feel safe knowing that my husband can check on our location and know exactly where we are thanks to the device in the vehicle.

Using the personal device makes me feel safe as well,  I like knowing that my child is carrying the PocketFinder® in his pocket when taking him to playschool or the park.   Thanks for the peace of mind PocketFinder®!

Buy it: From $149 – Visit their website for more information on their devices or the Apple store to purchase a personal unit.

    I do not know a parent who would not want this product. Anything to help give us some peace of mind even for awhile.
