We just discovered that Insignia is about to release a GPS child tracking device called Insignia Little Buddy. It is already up on Best Buy’s site but it has a “coming soon” status right now. However we at least know it is going to cost $100.
It seems like it supports real time GPS tracking but we have no information on what the monthly cost is going to be or which provider Best Buy decided to go with.
The Insignia GPS child tracker will have an accompanying website to keep track of your kids – and have an idea where they should be based on a weekly schedule.
Find a way to attach this to the car charger and you’ve got yourself a GPS vehicle tracking device.
You’ll have to wait until October 23rd though.
From Best Buy product page:
Keep tabs on your child at all times with this small but sophisticated device that combines GPS and cellular technology to provide you with real-time location updates. The small and lightweight Little Buddy transmitter fits easily into a backpack, lunchbox or other receptacle, making it easy for your child to carry so you can check his or her location at any time using a smartphone or computer. Customizable safety checks allow you to establish specific times and locations where your child is supposed to be — for example, in school — causing the device to alert you with a text message if your child leaves the designated area during that time. Additional real-time alerts let you know when the device’s battery is running low so you can take steps to ensure your monitoring isn’t interrupted.
