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 years...how about you?

Well..technology has a new answer and it's GPS tracking modules. There are several types out now, and services to accompany them..do 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)...as 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.

    • LOL Then YOU my friend are the one who jumped to conclusions in your last post because that was a direct quote from the post you were replying to. You did say it was NOT a joke, right?
    • Finally saw a few divers myself today.  In town.    Yah, I don't think it would make much of a difference if they let us just keep going.  
    • Whoooaaa...slow down big fella. Of course I do not think one party is any more "evil" than the other.  I don't think ANY of them are evil, they just have, more or less, different basic principles. You my friend,  have some serious attitude problems and seem to be very prone to jumping to conclusions and letting your paranoid tendency's run away with you. I have many friends on both sides of the two MAJOR parties and have worked with a couple of genuine Libertarians too. I can only recall a couple individuals I would consider might be "evil" in your sense of the word. Shucks,   I don't even think YOU are evil.   Ha Ha HA!
    • Salami ready to eat. 1/2 goose.....1/2 beef. Much firmer than using pork.Love this seasoning. Garlic, smoke and peppercorns. I always add extra garlic to it. Lately I have gone to using powdered smoke. 1 tsp. per pound of meat. Gives me a consistent flavor every time. No guessing how much smoke to have. Also allows to use the oven inside instead of out in the cold.   Summer sausage in the oven now while I watch football.  
    • --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------             You might want to read what was actually typed:     Do you really believe your side is good and the other is evil? If you do, that's the part that is a big joke.
    • below is a link for doing pork loin jerky. you can use any whole meat for this.       click here :)
    • Nice conspiracy theory.  So how come after they tested additional thousands of deer they didn't find any more, if they were looking for an excuse?      What were you expecting as far as policing the borders?  How many folks would be necessary, and how on earth would they do it?   But whatever.  You sound just like those guys back in the day over by Madison Wisconsin that had big money in their deer hunting land and raising trophy bucks.  No way were they going to kill a bunch of their deer.    And look at it now.  30 percent infection levels.     It's like AIS.   They are doing what they can within the limits of budget, manpower, and politics.     Look at the map of cwd infested counties in Wisconsin... I posted it up above.   Do you want Minnesota to look like that?  Do you want to eat deer with CWD?
