GPS Trackers and Their Misconceptions

GPS Trackers and Their Misconceptions

There are quite a few myths out there about what GPS trackers can and can’t do. If you don’t own one, you might expect them to be capable of things they are not. We’ve broken down the top myths about GPS trackers and what they can do for you. 

Shop GPS trackers at EyeSpySupply today.

Myth #1: GPS trackers are expensive

Perhaps this was true in the early days of GPS trackers. However, as technology has become more common, costs of trackers have decreased. The peace of mind of knowing where your precious pet or belongings are is worth the money. Many people are comparing the cost of Bluetooth trackers to GPS trackers, which are not the same. Bluetooth trackers can only track when in range of compatible devices, while good GPS trackers use a global network. The AirBolt GPS uses LTE-M & NB-IoT to be able to track almost anywhere in the world. 

Myth #2: the monthly expenses are not worth the cost

This is not the case with all trackers. The AirBolt GPS is only a subscription fee that has no lock-in contracts. You can cancel whenever you want.You can also look for GPS trackers with a handy “pause subscription”, so you can pause your tracking subscription if you don’t need it instead of the hassle of cancelling.

Myth #3: the battery life isn’t really worth it

Not all GPS trackers are created the same. While many trackers need to be recharged frequently or even daily, the trackers such as the AirBolt GPS can go up to a year on a single charge. When it is time to charge, use the USB-C cable.

Myth #4: Big Brother is tracking me

Many people are afraid that anyone can hack into their GPS and find them or their belongings. This is generally a misunderstanding of the technology. GPS is not designed to transmit signals. The network is intended to receive them. The only one that should access your GPS is you. This myth probably comes from spy movies, with people having to type furiously to pinpoint a hero’s location always in the nick of time.
