How to track your vehicle pet on the cheap, using your smartphone?
#1
Quote:Lost your car and can’t remember where you parked? It happens to the best of us: wandering aimlessly through parking lots, clicking the panic button on your key chain to get your headlights to illuminate. Now there is a cheap solution to one of lifes most annoying problems.

You don’t need some high-end radio transponder to keep tabs on your car because now there is an easier, much cheaper solution.
Standalone GPS and radio triangulation units can cost hundreds. And that’s not counting the installation and (frequently hefty) activation and monthly fees associated with whatever service you do choose. For most of us, it’s overkill. The good news is that some of life’s biggest problems seem to be disappearing because of new technology. If you frequently forget where you parked your car, there is a tiny gadget and app that could be what you’re looking for.




It's the size of a quarter, a great way to keep track children or pets.

I see one disadvantage to that. The attachment is standard and any thief, or other creep, can automatically recognize it for what it is. The attachment needs to be something that is not readily identifiable. Otherwise, all the potential thief has to do is just yank it off and throw it away.

All one need do is glue it under the seat of a bicycle, or glue it somewhere on a car where it won't be easily seen such as the lower corner of a rear window. It also be useful for a family living with someone who suffers from dementia.

The way things have been going around here, that may just be me soon. Banghead

Yeah, but...

someone with dementia would probably not recall that they have a car finder!

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

About twenty years ago an elderly couple drove around a rural municipality near where I live for three weeks lost.  They stayed at motels ate at restaurants etc.
