GPS tracker for a child
« on: November 20, 2020, 10:11:14 AM »
my 5yr old son's bus driver for the way home from school is very inconsistent. i want to put a tracker in his bag so as to know when to come outside to wait from him. are there any suggestions for a realtime tracker without monthly fees. has anyone actualy done this?
thanks

I would be be willing to use my own sim card with a low cost data only plan.

Many schools have and provide GPS location of their buses, in NYC they're required by law to provide it to the parents

Any smartphone can do it. Keep it in a waterproof zip lock bag on silent. Use the find my phone option.

Charging it will be annoying though.

If you want to get fancy you can get a geofencing app that will notify you when it gets in a certain area
