You only think you know where your teenage driver goes. Now you can know for sure! If you have a really nice car that is your pride and joy or just a very expensive vehicle then you should consider a Super Trackstick GPS Data Logger or another type of GPS device. This type of device allows you to learn exactly where your children have been taking the vehicle and how many miles are really being put on it. You can even tell if they have been speeding! There is nothing like loaning your teenager the car and not knowing where they have been all day long. They might tell you one thing but it seemed as if they were gone way too long to only have been right down the street. When you use a device like the Super Trackstick then you can have the capability to pull the device off of the car and connect it to your computer. It will download all of the driving history so you can learn if your child is telling the truth or if they are adding hundreds of unnecessary miles. They may even be taking your new truck for a little off road fun in some terrain that is very hard on the shocks and the rest of the vehicle. Wouldn’t you like to know? You may also be wondering where your teenager is going all of the time. He or she may leave at the same time every day and they don’t want you to know where it is that they are headed. Even though they are growing up and teenagers you still have a right to know. It is your job to protect them. The best way to find out where they have been to ensure they are safe is by using a Super Trackstick GPS Data Logger. This will allow you to see the driving history through online mapping locations once you download the information to your computer. Using a Super Trackstick GPS Data Logger is not “snooping” on your teenager. As a parent it is your right, and duty, to know where your teenager is. That is just good parenting. Sure, we want to start giving our teenager some freedom. Let them “spread their wings” a little but it is up to us, as parents, to help guide them through their tricky teenage years. We can all remember what WE did when we were teenagers and sometimes we might look back and wonder how we made it through that time in our life. When you use the Super Trackstick you are just helping to make sure that they come out of their teenage years in one piece. The great thing about the Super Trackstick is that it is a device designed to secure to the underside of the vehicle or some other location that is very safe and weatherproof. You don’t have to worry about your teenager finding it and thinking you don’t trust them when all you want to do is make sure they are being safe and making good decisions. It is tiny, covert, and will fit anywhere inside or out. It is also barely noticeable. All you have to do is pull the device from the car when they return and download the data on the computer.
