GPS Data Loggers help you Keep an Eye on the New Drivers in the Family
Parents are keenly aware of the big milestones that their children will experience. Usually, what is exciting for the child is terrifying for the parent. And one of those terrifying moments has to be the first time the parent hands their child the car keys.
One way to relieve this stress is by installing a GPS Data Logger in your car. GPS Data Loggers are small devices, usually magnetic and waterproof, that attach to your car and record data while the vehicle is in motion. They can track exactly where the car travels, how fast it’s moving, and even how long the car is stopped at a certain place. Then, when the trip is over, you can transfer that data to your computer and use Google Maps to see what’s been recorded.
No, it’s not quite as good as sitting in the passenger seat, reminding your teenager that they aren’t going to that big party tonight, but it is the next best thing.
Rather than try to hide this from your child, you tell the new driver that there’s a GPS car tracker installed in the car – don’t tell them where, of course. Be upfront and honest, and explain why you want to track their car usage.
New drivers need to learn good driving habits and, often, having that little voice in their ear reminding them to slow down and drive carefully might just be the best thing for them. Knowing that you’re going to be looking over their driving history, seeing what they’re doing, will help them be more careful behind the wheel.
So if you’re looking for some peace of mind, come and check out Spy Store’s collection of GPS tracking devices. From big to small, with up to 120 hours of recording, we can find the perfect device for you to know exactly how good of a driver your teenager is.
