I found this looking at cool gadgets online, and thought it might be perfect for us: 

 

http://www.trakdot.com

 

Battery operated, GPS enabled and a cellular signal to transmit the device's location at any time. I figure it's pretty great for cases when working in town or traveling. I'll probably order one to give it a try and see if it sucks.

 

Anyone else find a product similar to this, comparable price, etc? 

 

EDIT: then I realized it's sold out. Well, hopefully when it gets back in inventory, I'll order one. 

 

EDIT 2: you can find the device in other sites, like Amazon:

Nice, that seems like a great alternative. I'm trying to find out if the Spot trackers do multiple devices under the same subscription, because $99/year per device seems a bit steep considering the competition. Then again, Trakdot may not do movement notification and be as security minded.

Alan....... if they want to be in touch with you, they'll get in touch with you. Making them wear a tracking device won't help the family dynamics.
