Birds Eye Global Tracking, Clearwater, Florida, takes top spot in GPS tracking device comparison test for tracking children and adults with special needs, due to its superior indoor tracking capabilities.
In two independent online product comparison tests, the Birds Eye GPS Tracking Device scored consistently at the top of its mini-size tracker class. Out of 11 personal GPS tracking devices rated in one test, only 4 were shown to be effective in pin-pointing a target indoors.
Called “the ultimate child/teen/adult/vehicle tracking device” by one reviewer, who went on to applaud the Birds Eye Tracker as a “durable, lightweight, water-resistant, assisted GPS tracking device that works spectacularly well both indoors and out”. The device, which is smaller than a set of keys, can locate a person suffering from Alzheimer’s or Dementia or a missing child anywhere in less than 60 seconds with amazing pin-point accuracy.
According to national statistics, each day in the United States, over 2,000 children are reported missing, and out of that group, 46 go unrecovered. Every year, hundreds of patients suffering from Dementia and Alzheimer’s wander away from home or their caretaker’s residence. According to statistics from the Alzheimer’s Association, up to 60% of all Alzheimer’s patients will wander. The report also goes on to state that 50% of those patients that are not found within 8 hours will suffer serious injury or death. According to Birds Eye President and Founder, Jimmy Bitzas, “a miniature GPS tracking device could prevent harm or death for every special needs person who wears one”.
What makes the Birds Eye Tracker perform so well in recent testing is its capability to combine two 21st century location technologies: the GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) system used by the US military and vehicle navigation systems and cell phone tower position plotting. Unlike the common vehicle navigation system, which must use line of sight from the satellites looking down at the vehicle, this new GRPS technology can now locate a subject inside a building and other structures. In a recent product test, the Birds Eye “Safe Tracker” device was able to pinpoint the location of a subject on the 30th floor of a high-rise office building, in downtown Tampa.
“In addition to the Birds Eye Tracker’s superior accuracy, its ability to provide continuous tracking without hidden “pay-per-click” overcharges and a 30 year historical tracking archive put this unit in a class all by itself,” said Bitzas. “And since national statistics show that children spend on average 85% of their time indoors each day, it makes sense that parents will choose a GPS tracking device that can locate a child indoors.”
