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
The geo-political conflict in the Middle East between Israel and terrorist organization Hamas has been dominating the recent news headlines. In short, after constant bombardment from rockets fired by Hamas terrorists into Israel, the Israeli intelligence found that the terrorist group was using a network of sophisticated tunnels to move weapons and assist in attacks. These tunnels became the strategic advantage Hamas had in attacking innocent Israeli citizens, and therefore the Israeli government felt it was necessary to develop a plan to both find and destroy these tunnels. After sending ground troops into Gaza to locate and eradicate the tunnel networks, it now appears that the conflict is nearing its temporary end, which is something Israel, the Palestinian people and governments across the world can feel relieved about. However, Israel is sadly no stranger to conflict and attack by Muslim extremists and it is likely not if, but when Hamas will regroup to continue its assault on the Israeli people. Although the conflict in the Middle East is complicated and deep, Israel may find an ally in a technology commonly used in the United States to help improve fleet management strategy. This technology is GPS tracking system technology and it could play a key role in reducing terrorist attacks.
GPS tracking systems are small devices that report locational data in a comprehensive and detailed fashion. This real-time tracking technology is commonly used for surveillance applications such as car tracking. When placed on a car, a GPS tracking system will document every spot a driver goes, the length of time the driver was at that spot and more. The GPS tracking systems also are engineered with the ability to communicate via alert (geo-fence & speed).
Israel is nation roughly the size of the state of New Jersey, but it faces a number of very unique challenges due to its proximity to countries such as Syria, Iran and Egypt, countries that have publicly announced their refusal to accept a Jewish state. What this results in is numerous terrorist plots and attacks being inflicted upon the Jewish nation. Therefore, Israel has to allocate numerous resources to defend itself, making GPS tracking technology advantageous in this very critical area of national security.
GPS tracking systems are designed with covert monitoring applications in mind, which is exactly how Israel could benefit from the technology. How law enforcement and military could use GPS is by tracking the vehicles of people they suspect are engaging in terrorist activities. Through the process of car tracking the Israelis would be able to determine who a potential terrorist is associating with, what locations they travel and more. This information may even be helpful in finding terrorist training camps or high ranking Hamas officials wanted by Israel.
Government use of surveillance technology is certainly intended to enhance national security and there are not many other nations in the world more concerned with national security than Israel. Therefore, employing a strategy that utilizes GPS vehicle tracking could be significantly influential in boosting security as well as helping the government bring terrorists to justice.Last Updated on Thursday, 07 August 2014 02:43
Student safety is always a top concern of school districts all across the United States. Another concern for school districts is bus fleet management, especially considering the recent rise in fuel costs. Looking at the different options to not only increase student safety and school bus management, school officials have chosen to move forward with a plan to equip several buses in Monroe County Tennessee with GPS vehicle tracking systems .
GPS tracking system technology for bus fleet management has become easier to use and more affordable over the past decade, making the real-time monitoring a feasible solution for school districts walking a tight rope of budgetary flexibility. What bus GPS tracking systems provide is a comprehensive amount of measurements and reports related to bus driving activity. This can include total mileage driven, data regarding vehicle idling and alerts if a bus driver is engaging in dangerous driving practices. Not to mention, the real-time tracking data can be accessed 24-7, giving school bus officials the ability to instantly view where students are being picked up and dropped off throughout the day.
Currently, Monroe is going through a testing process of the bus tracking systems in 10 district buses. The GPS tracking systems will even have the capability to transmit an alert if a bus is experiencing any mechanical issues. The GPS tracking initiative something that school officials believe will instantly benefit both students and the school district.
When asked about the new program that will equip school buses with GPS tracking systems, Charles Underwood, a representative for Monroe County schools, stated the safety aspect alone makes the vehicle management technology a noble investment. Knowing where buses are moving, if they are operating without mechanical issues and where they are traveling at all times of the day is important in asset management.
Do you think the investment in GPS tracking systems is a good or bad decision among the Monroe County schools?
Should all school districts employ bus tracking devices to improve student safety?Last Updated on Tuesday, 05 August 2014 23:14
