Every parent will have a mixture of feelings when their teenage child passes their driving test. It is a time to be very proud of their accomplishment, but having a teen on the road also brings about a whole new set of concerns and fears for parents.
A majority of the fears are a result of waving their children off the driveway, and then having no way of helping or guiding them once out of sight- a GPS car tracker can help you to help them become a better driver.
Being able to monitor their driving behaviour helps to further educate them, as well as ensure they are not damaging the vehicle through improper use. A car tracker also provides a higher level of security for the vehicle itself (and may ensure a discount on your car insurance, and even a reduction on your theft excess.) .
A prominent example is a new driver's first long drive to university- as well as how the car is stored whilst away from home.
Being able to easily see the location, speed and general use of a vehicle is making a simple tracking device an important tool in parenting.
Your tracker comes with a free tracking app for you to view any of your trackers info, and control your device remotely. You also have full access through www.login.trackershop.com
A live tracker for your car will allow you to check all locations visited. If you have set specific rules as to where a teen is allowed to travel to, or not allowed to travel to, you are able to set instant alerts if any of these areas are breached.
TYPES OF CAR TRACKER
There are 2 main types of tracking devices for cars that parents tend to purchase.
They are 'magnetic' and 'hardwired'
Hardwired Trackers such as the ProFleetman attach to the vehicles battery, and sit covertly under the dashboard of the vehicle.
They are easy to install and are tucked out of site, meaning they cannot be tampered with and are hard to detect.
Trackershop have seen a significant growth in the amount of magnetic car trackers purchased by parents in line with their teen drivers passing their driving test.
Attaching a tracker magnetically to a vehicle is incredibly simple and offers numerous positives.
Some of the benefits for a magnetic tracker include:
- No installation
- Ready to use straight away
- Extra long life batteries available
- Free tracking app
- Safety alerts/zones
- Cheap tracking costs
All the magnetic car trackers that Trackershop provide are ready to use as soon as they arrive with you.
We know our customers have busy lives, and having a GPS tracker that you can simply take out the box, charge and place straight on the vehicle is a big comfort and a major positive.
With the tracker being positioned on the exterior of the vehicle, it also means that the signal strength and accuracy will be far greater.
Even so, all of our vehicle trackers have a-GPS, which helps improve their signal, even if you place them inside the vehicle itself.
This means that the tracker will not need to worry about the device being charged at all, whilst a uni student is away for a term at a time.
Driving a car is a huge responsibility and for an inexperienced driver there is a lot of pressure to uphold their own safety, those of passengers as well as other road users.
Providing added help for them is a relief and can also allow additional freedom- opposed to being restrictive.
