Posted by Videos Gone Viral Saturday, December 19, 2009

 The GPS cell phone is a nifty little devise that allows you to track where a cell phone is. It comes in handy for people who need or want to know where someone is. This kind of technology has many advantages for people and companies who need to use them.

A cell phone that has GPS can already have it on the phone or it can be put on the cell phone afterwards. It doesn`t cost too much and can be purchased anywhere cell phones and electronics are sold. The GPS works by letting someone track you via a special website. A popular website for this kind of cell phone tracking is called Ulocate. The site allows you to see exactly where the cell phone is by its location on a map, it can also tell you how long it`s been there. The only drawback is that the cell phone has been turned on and not out of batteries for it to be tracked.

People using these websites to track cell phone GPS users could be employers wondering what their staffs are up to. Many companies have traveling workers who may be out and about all day. For employers to look and see that there employees are where they are supposed to be is a great consolation. It also works for people taking sick time and not being at home or the doctor`s office. Their boss can now track them down and if there at the beach it might be hard to explain.

This devise is popular for parents keeping track of their pre-teens and teenagers. While some may do it to spy on their kids and act like a pair of extra eyes where ever there kids are going, others use it as a safety measure, knowing that if their child is unreachable for a period of time that the parents can simply find their location and scoop them up. The GPS cell phone is also an excellent feature when you lose your phone, as you can just track it and retrieve it again. This might also be popular for people suspecting that their spouses are cheating. They can just go online to see if their spouse is really at the mall or movies or in the same town as they said they were.

With the availability of this new technology and the pros to having it, it can most certainly draw on some negative and positive feedback. For example; while the boss might be happy that they busted their employee for not being sick, the employee is now out of a job, and while the husband might be thrilled to know that their spouse was cheating, their partner may not be. And what if there are reasonable explanations for the person being somewhere, but when confronted by a spouse, parent or employer that they are truly hurt for being spied on. It seems like this product could be great and not so good at the same time. It most often has to be used appropriately and before accusations is given, that the entire facts are met before and acquisitions are thrown out.

The GPS cell phone is often given out by employers who want their business phones tracked, as well as Christmas presents for loved ones. This product would serve an excellent feature in the case of a traffic accident where the car is off the road. There family member could simply track them down and help them out.
