Every year across America motorcyclists will throw on their leather jackets and hit the open road for charity. Some riders will get on their bikes and travel for organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project, or other charities that support Autism awareness, cancer research or heart disease prevention. Raising money for charitable organizations is always a noble cause and riding a motorcycle to contribute to that effort is something many motorcycle riders enjoy being a part of. In fact, many of these charitable campaigns are not only using automotive technology to get from point A to point B but also social media. Facebook, twitter and microblogs are spreading the word about these motorcycle rides for good and helping them better connect with their audience with the help of GPS vehicle tracker systems.
Social networking is now commonplace in the United States and with over 150 million active Facebook users in the US and Canada alone it is likely to going to be one of the ways people connect with one another moving forward (Facebook has over one billion users worldwide). Whether the choice is Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus or any of the other trendy social networks there is no denying that people are actively calling upon digital devices and mobile technology to connect with one another and this is where GPS tracking can play a unique role. See when a GPS device is connected to a person, automobile or asset it has the ability to provide real-time updates on the locations of those items. This real-time tracking data is not only accurate and beneficial for a number of different applications such as teen safety, senior care and vehicle management, but it can also provide a way for charity motorcycle runs to expand their reach and connection.
When a motorcycle rider opts to put a GPS vehicle tracker system on their bike they have the ability to not only locate that vehicle 24/7 but also the ability to share that tracking data. This combination is actually quite significant because with the use of a motorcycle GPS system the motorcycle rider can not only protect their property from theft but share their travels on social networks to enhance awareness for their cause. "Motorcycle riders and charities that involve lengthy motorcycle rides frequently contact us regarding real-time monitoring solutions and they are always pleased to hear that we have a system in place that allows them to share tracking data with the simple copy and paste of some HTML code", explained a sales associate for Tracking System Direct. "With this easy to generate HTML code the charity can post on their website, blog or social networking channels where motorcycle riders are located. Real-time GPS technology is a really cool way to engage the audience and tool to maximize viewership."
The majority of motorcycle charity events last anywhere from a day or upwards of a week. That means the motorcycle riders or event organizers usually seek live GPS systems that are both portable and that do not require any lengthy subscription fees (real-time GPS devices send data and therefore require a monthly service obligation and occasionally an annual contract). This is the reason one of the most popular live trackers is a device called Tag. What makes Tag the GPS tracker called upon is that the device is small (roughly the size of a pack of chewing gum), affordable ($199.00) and does not require any annual commitments for real-time service. All the motorcycle rider would have to pay is the hardware cost and the monthly fees for data which run as low as $1 a day.Last Updated on Friday, 10 October 2014 03:54
Sadly, there is no way to hide the statistics when it comes to the prison population in the United States. According to one set of data gathered in 2009, it is said that for every 100,000 people in the U.S. population that 743 out of that sample size were or spent time in some form of jail or prison whether that be at the state or federal level. Although there is a lot of information and reports circulating to suggest that having a large prison population is in fact good business, let's pretend that we live in a world where we want to reduce the prison population. That we want to reduce the costs associated with maintaining that population. Clearly, there are a lot of complexities and no singular model that will remedy the over crowded jail population situation, but one piece of technology that could be as close to a singular solution as possible is the personal GPS tracking system.
Real-time GPS monitoring involves data obtained from a network of satellites orbiting the sky, a GPS receiver, cellular communication and online mapping program. That may sound pretty complicated but the application is actually rather quite user-friendly. Basically, a GPS receiver is able to determine locational data by absorbing GPS signals from satellites. This locational information includes time, date, altitude, orientation, direction and more. The GPS receiver then works with a gadget called a cellular data module that provides the mechanism to transmit the data on the GPS receiver across cellular networks. The transmitted locational data is sent to computer servers where it is integrated with mapping software where a person can literally view the data in real-time. The GPS data is formatted into a digestible version that can help a person determine the location of a vehicle, asset or individual within a couple feet! The coolest part is this GPS locational data can be viewed from a iPhone, galaxy or any cell phone with Internet connection.
Currently, a number of people convicted of crimes are able to select GPS monitoring as a alternative to time in jail. But what if in a effort to reduce the overall jail population criminals convicted of non-violent crimes were given the choice between jail or GPS? This means those arrested for drug charges and things of that nature could opt to stay outside prison walls to serve their punishment via house arrest. It is probably a safe bet to say that the significant majority would opt for the GPS personal tracking. So how would this process work and would it be effective ?
GPS bracelets have been employed for some time with success in monitoring criminals. Basically how the process works is that the person who was convicted of a crime wears a real-time GPS monitoring system. The tracking data is the monitored off-site where both the real-time and historical tracking information can be viewed 24/7. The real-time GPS monitoring systems are even designed to provide security alerts to notify authorities if a criminals under GPS monitoring leaves the home, city, state or country! In fact, the GPS monitoring system programs have already been found to be helpful in situations regarding domestic violence and sexual assault. This evidence can be found in the number of different independent research programs that have investigated the effectiveness of GPS as a deterrent.Last Updated on Tuesday, 30 September 2014 04:12
There are a number of different reasons why a person would choose to invest in a GPS monitoring device to observe where a car goes throughout the day. Maybe a husband suspects his wife is having an affair with another man, maybe a tow truck company wants to validate driving activity of an employee they suspect is falsifying time sheets or maybe a private investigator wants to investigate a corporate fraud case. Regardless of the reasons for wanting to use GPS car monitoring technology, people should be aware that using any form of spy gadget comes with responsibility. That means that a person using a GPS needs to make certain that they are using such monitoring technologies inside the parameters of lawful use in a way that does not violate the rights of others.
The purchase of a GPS auto tracking device that can track a car is 100% legal. However, just because a product is legal doesn't mean it can be used in any sort of fashion that the buyer chooses. Let's compare GPS for example to the purchase of a video camera (even though smart phones have essentially crippled the video camera industry). A person can walk into most electronics stores in their city and purchase a video camera without any issue, but even though that product can offer a wide range of benefits it, like a GPS unit, can be used maliciously. For example, video cameras are legal but it's not legal to place that video camera in the office bathroom. This is where it can be a little bit tricky when it comes to the application of GPS car tracking units.
GPS car tracking units are legal but the act of monitoring a vehicle has many shades of white, gray and black. For example, in many states a employer can equip auto tracking equipment on their company vehicles and not have to disclose that information to employees. Some states require that employees disclose this information. In some places it's legal to place a car tracker on the outside of a vehicle but if a person places a GPS inside the cab of the vehicle that is illegal. Therefore, it is important to understand that laws are not concrete when it comes to GPS monitoring practices. In fact, what is legal in one place might be illegal in another. That's simply the way many laws work, including laws related to GPS vehicle monitoring.
When it comes to getting sound legal advice regarding the use of GPS monitoring systems the first place a person should start is the city and state they plan on using the tracker systems. The first step would be to contact local police to see if they have any knowledge about personal or business application legalities. However, that information should also be reinforced by a attorney in the local area who understands criminal and business law. Those would be the two parties with the most knowledge about GPS vehicle monitoring laws in the region of intended use. Those wanting extra credit confirmation could even speak with a local private investigation company, as many PIs are aware of legal boundaries and what is considered acceptable with GPS.
It is important that people do the appropriate research before investing in car GPS systems so they do not cross the line where they themselves are conducting themselves in a unlawful fashion. Talking with police, local attorneys and private eyes before using any automotive tracking units is the best way to avoid doing something against the law.
This article is NOT legal advice! GPS vehicles monitoring systems should not be used to violate the rights of others. It is the responsibility of the user to learn what laws may apply in their area of intended use.Last Updated on Saturday, 13 September 2014 06:50
One of the fastest growing applications related to GPS tracking is senior safety. More and more families are trying to avoid sending their elderly loved ones to senior health care facilities and instead keep those family members at home. The only problem is that many seniors struggle with wandering, especially those with early on-set dementia or some other form of cognitive challenge. That creates a very serious personal safety situation that can lead to tragic consequences if not handled properly. This is the reason so many concerned family members are investing in senior GPS tracking bracelets or watches to help them monitor senior loved ones. The only problem is that these GPS personal tracking devices can be costly. Therefore, the first thing these family members do is try to get the cost of the senior GPS systems covered through medical insurance.
The first step that those who investigate real-time GPS tracking devices discover is that any GPS device that provides live locational data requires a monthly or annual cost. That means the customer must keep a credit card on file for monthly or annual billing to keep the senior GPS system active and functioning properly. Medical insurance companies at this time rarely if ever provide this type of service, so the best hope a person seeking to invest in a senior GPS tracking system is for reimbursement.
Medical insurance providers have been known to reimburse their clients for certain expenses at times depending on the coverage plan in place. Therefore, the very first thing a person who wants to get medical insurance coverage or reimbursement for a GPS should do is speak with both their doctor and healthcare insurance provider. Naturally, each circumstance and insurance policy is different. This can't be over stated so please do not take this article as the absolute answer to the medical insurance question. The only party that can tell a person if they qualify for any type of reimbursement for the cost of a GPS tracking system or if their insurance coverage will cover the product cost is that insurance company themselves. This includes insurance providers such as Medicare, Medicaid or private medical insurers.
"Our sales staff receives hundreds of customer inquiries about our senior GPS tracking systems every single day and one of the first questions that those inquiring customers ask is whether or not their medical insurance will cover or reimburse them for the costs of senior GPS devices", explained Vice President of Sales for online retailer Tracking System Direct. "As much as our trained staff would love to be able to provide these customers accurate information they really are only qualified to provide product support. We understand that this might be frustrating but the best party to ask about medical insurance coverage of senior GPS systems is that insurance provider themselves."
The costs associated with Senior GPS devices really should be covered by insurance companies and hopefully in the near future that will be the standard practice across all insurance agencies and providers. Until those modifications are made across the health care system the only choice is for senior citizens and their families to discuss in detail what options are available to them through their insurance plans. Senior safety is obviously a very serious issue for many all across the world and with elderly tracking technologies available it seems as though finding an avenue to cover those costs should be a priority.Last Updated on Tuesday, 26 August 2014 17:15
By now you have probably seen the videos of celebrities, athletes and likely most of your friends on Facebook dumping a large bucket of ice water over their heads. The Ice Bucket Challenge has gone totally viral and brought more attention to ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, than any other awareness campaign in recent memory. Unfortunately, with that success has come significant criticism. Social media now has people talking about how only 7 cents on every dollar donated to ALS actually goes toward research and a cure, while others point out wasting water in the midst of some of the driest conditions on record sets a poor precedent. The world we live in will always have it's share of doubters, haters or negative thinkers even when the message being sent is truly one of inspiration and positivity. A Temecula, California resident and man suffering from ALS eloquently made this point in his very moving and personal Ice Bucket Challenge. The man is Anthony Carbajal and I wanted to tell you a little bit about the man behind the powerful video clip that has since gone viral with over 6 million views in just a few days.
Anthony Carbajal is unfortunately all too familiar with ALS because his grandmother lost her life to the disease and his mother is near the end of her battle with the disease as well. Knowing that he would need to care for his mother with ALS, Carbajal began to peruse a career as a wedding photographer about 5 years ago. Carbajal always enjoyed photography and saw a career as a wedding photographer as the perfect occupation because it would allow him to both generate an income and stay at home as much as possible to care for his mother. Fueled by passion for photography and the love of his mother, Carbajal quickly became one of the most in demand Temecula wedding photographers, booking over 50 weddings per year. His work became featured in wedding blogs and the awards began to pile up. Everything was going perfectly as planned, but that was when Carbajal began to notice weakness in his hands. Weakness in the hands is an early sign of ALS that Carbajal was quite aware of and that terrified him to think about. That was when we met for dinner at a local Mexican restaurant.
At dinner, Carbajal told me about his fear of what an ALS diagnosis would do. Not only would it put an immediate stop to his photography dreams but it also would force him to focus more on his personal health which meant taking care of his mother would be that much more difficult. This emotionally taxing thinking doesn't even factor in the loss of income and struggles that would surely come as ALS care can be quite costly. I spoke with my friend in hopes to reassure him everything was okay and to tell him that he was probably being hyper-sensitive to everything since he was so entrenched in the ALS stuff. See what made Carbajal's situation slightly different was that his family had a genetic form of ALS that came on at a atypical young age. His mother was diagnosed in her late twenties and so too was his grandmother. Therefore, at 25-years old Carbajal was in the rare position where ALS could be a real possibility. We continued to drink a couple more margaritas, Carbajal decided to see the doctor soon and then later we parted ways.Last Updated on Friday, 22 August 2014 04:16
