an electronic security device which allows you to monitor the location of a person or object.
GPS trackers are becoming more and more common for keeping an eye on family members, pets, vehicles, and belongings.
These trackers send signals to a smartphone app or web-based dashboard at specific times. The moment you get those location alerts depends on the device:
Predetermined intervals (every minute, every hour, etc.)
When requested through the smartphone app
When sent by the wearer
When crossing a geofence
The tracker’s current location (and, if the device allows it, location history) is then shown on a map within the smartphone application.
