CareTracker from Tracking Central

The CareTracker from Tracking Central is a personal tracking device that uses GPS and the cellular phone network to let you follow the location of an individual who may be carrying the device with them.

This is the sort of device that you can use if you have an elderly family member who may be inclined to wander off without telling you where they’re off to, or perhaps you’re concerned about the whereabouts of your kids.

As well as mapping the locations that the device (and therefore the person carrying it) has visited, you can call the device on its own mobile phone number, and it will respond by sending you an SMS message with its current location.

There’s lots of possibilities for this sort of technology, and I currently have one of these on me so that I may review its capabilities.

I’ll let you know more about this as the review progresses, but right now, I can tell you that it’s mapping my location as I go about my daily business in and around Sydney.
