GPS cell phone tracking and theft prevention and recovery services

3 posts in this topic

I'm about fed up with all the sporting thefts in recent about you? has a new answer and it's GPS tracking modules. There are several types out now, and services to accompany a Google and you will locate them.

The basic way they work is this. Attach the GPS tag to the item you want to track...and they will notify you when it moves, or where it is going, or where it is now. They do this by cell phone and by e-mail, so you set up the system to fit the need.

An enterprising sporting web site may wish to look into this further...(HINT) it most certainly has great value to sportsman in this day and age.

A friend of mine has a T-Mobile phone that he can track. I thought that was pretty cool.

Now if the come up with an APP that can find my phone in my Car, Bedroom, or anywhere in my house when I really need it. I'll buy it the at the first chance I get!

FYI: All cell phones are now easily track-able, as long as they are turned on. Even if the 911 track feature is turned off or disabled, your still traceable as long at it is powered on. The government has the ability to access this as does most law enforcement agencies, but not the end user unless they are specifically enrolled in a track program with there provider.

The big difference with the GPS track tags is you have the ability to place them where you wish, to secure what you wish, and at any time 24/7/365 monitor it by logging on a secure web site or on your cell phone and you can determine notification and alert status parameters.

An example would be once your ice house was set at a known location, you tell the system to note that present location, and if it moves, it is tracked and recorded and you are informed and also the police are informed of this if that security feature is also activated. You gain theft protection and documentation, and recovery is nearly guaranteed.

    • The walleye have been MIA on the Iowa River around Coralville this fall. It is not the high water, I don't think--high water spots that have worked great in the past have not produced any walleye for me this year. Not much luck for white bass and wiper, either.   What I have gotten in to the last couple weeks is a nice smallmouth and spotted bass bite, of all things. This is in one of my spots that seldom produced black bass in the past with water levels where they are now. No huge fish, but lots of smallies and spots up to 15" or so. Also a lot of the 6" black crappies that seem to be everywhere on Lake Macbride and the Iowa River this fall.
    • I was thinking they were after the Smallys and that it must have been a tourney with all the boat traffic.
    • Caught some decent fish but never dialed them in.    Thursday I only got 5 in the boat and nothing over 4lbs. Caught about a dozen eyes though. I did loose one at the boat that I think was pushing 6lbs. It was one of those fish that was too fat to fight. Only head shakes. Had my net in hand and was reaching for it to net and the hook popped out. That one dropped me to my knees.    Friday Todd S came out with me and it was a struggle the first 6 hours. We had one fish in the boat. We tried deep, shallow, and everything in between. Finally went back to one of my favorite shallow spots in the fall and got into them good. We probably caught 18-20 fish with biggest 5 going 26.15lbs. Todd S got big fish at 5lbs 10oz. I had 3 over 5 too.    Saturday was one of those days that you love being on the wise haha. I just could not figure them out. I think I spent too much time in the shallow spot from the previous day. Should have just searched deep. Only ended up with 4 with two over 4lbs. 
    • It's hard to tell, he either thinks everyone is living off the government or calling them #hypocritesandfrauds. I assume at some point he will accuse the forums will be rigged with #hypocritesandfrauds living off the gov, while at the same time being mad at their bro's.
    • Super nice calm fall day somewhat shortly after monster smallmouth tourney results within 2 hours drive of a major population base.  Nope, no idea what was going on.
    • I picked up a used BAR the other day in 300 mag. Anyone shooting a BAR or anything with a BOSS? I still plan to use my 270 for deer but it was a deal I couldn't pass up and for some reason I wanted a 300.  I tore it down when I got it home a cleaned it up and finally got to put some rounds through it the other day. It shoots well and the semi auto action helps with the recoil as does the BOSS. I picked up the CR for it so if I do use it hunting I don't have to worry about hearing protection. I didn't play around too much with groups but did get the BOSS set to 8.5 and I'm getting groups around 1.5". 
    • Farmers are still contemplating their corn's moisture content around Center MN.  Debating if they want to dry it after harvest or continue to let it stand.  Of course some fields are out.   So I guess the prediction on whether the corn will be out by gun opener will hinge on your areas soil type and field drainage characteristics.  
    • Not sure what was going on up there last Sat when I went by but most of the landings were pretty busy on the west side? 
    • Note, we already had that covered....
    • Has D2E claimed the forum is rigged yet?  I haven't been paying close attention.
