AD| GPS was something that was once used only in Sat-Navs. Now that technology has grown so much over the past 10-15 years, it’s become something we use every day to help make our lives easier.
PAJ-GPS is a leading European brand in this technology, bringing quality and functional products that will be useful every single day.
Here’s some ways you can use a GPS:
Never lose your car again!
You can use GPS to track where your car’s location. There’s nothing worse than parking your car then forgetting where it is! I wish I had this when I went to see the Spice Girls in 2019. I drove to Manchester alone and my friends got a coach from a different city. After the concert, I tried to find my car but I was completely lost, I must have walked around the stadium about three times before I found where my car was parked! It was very stressful.
A GPS tracker would have been handy.
Car Theft Prevention
A handy GPS device can help you to track and trace your vehicle if it gets stolen. They’re also fantastic if you are leaving your car alone for while on holiday or for a few days when you won’t be able to check on it. You can make sure it’s still in the same place by using Geo Fencing – which lets you set a boundary and it will alert you if the tracker leaves the boundary.
There are always posts on my local community page all the time about lost cats. They stay out for days without returning home. They do seem to return eventually. But having a GPS collar on them would put your mind at ease knowing they were in the area and still moving around!
Simply popping a GPS tracker in your luggage is a great way to ensure you don’t lose your suitcase. There’s nothing worse than that feeling of waiting for your case to appear at the airport and it being one of the last!
Locating Your Child
There may be times when you want to track your child’s location. If you have a younger child, it might be a good idea for them to have a GPS device on them if you are going to be somewhere where they could get lost, like a theme park, or if they’re going on a school trip. Children often run off in the blink of an eye! They may also be useful for older children when they begin walking to school alone or want to be more independent.
It’s awful hearing horror stories of solo travellers, or even small groups of people getting attacked, kidnapped or even worse. Having a trusted person track you via GPS could actually be life-saving!
This is another one useful for personal safety! Using GPS you can let someone know where you are if you are lost, but also allow you to find your location and get back on the right track.
This one is useful for us! My husband is a cyclist. When he goes out, he shares his GPS location with me so if something happens or he has an accident, I’d be able to find him and drive to him. It’s also handy when he has a flat tyre and I have to rescue him!
