Understanding The Different Child Locator Devices
There are several types of child locator devices on the market but parents need to truly understand the one they are purchasing in order to utilize it correctly and know what they can expect from the device. Many of the units available use radio frequencies to locate the tag, which your child is carrying on them. This gives a limited range on how far the unit can accurately locate and track your child. The Amber Alert GPS child locator uses GPS technology, which gives it almost unlimited range for finding a missing child. The only limitations on this system is the cell phone coverage your mobile carrier provides and whether the GPS unit has access to the GPS signals from satellites in the sky. Both systems have their good and bad sides and parents need to decide which is the best for them.
