Driving Activity Reporter - Track Your Car Wherever It Goes
Wondering how does it work? The Driving Activity Reporter integrates a 16-channel GPS receiver that collects transmissions from 24 Department of Defense satellites in order to track the movements of the vehicle.
The best thing? It is extremely small, about the size of a pack of gum, Hammacher Schlemmer says. This basically allows you, the parent, to hide it wherever you want inside the car.
There are a few things to know before using it. The device only works in temperatures between -15 degrees F (-26 degrees Celsius) and 185 degrees F (85 degrees Celsius) so you shouldn't encounter any problem unless you're living at the North Pole.
Batteries have always been a problem for such devices but Hammacher Schlemmer says the device saves battery whenever it's possible. For instance, it automatically enters sleep mode when the car is stationary for more than two minutes. However, two regular AAA batteries should be enough for 100 hours of driving activity, the company said. Pricing starts at $229.95.

The activity reporter has a global footprint so it works anywhere in the world. Since the device does not transmit data it is not a slave to cellular coverage. I know of people who have successfully used the device in Australia, central America, South Africa and more. You can even save money on the device by purchasing through a wholesaler such as Tracking System Direct at http://www.tracking-system.com/ . If you have any more questions on the Driving Activity Reporter please feel free to post something. ;)
