John passed his driving test in October 2022 so we’ve had our car for nearly a year now. We’ve very quickly come to rely on it, like I’m sure many of us do. Something I worry about though is car safety but there are things you can do to help ease your mind.
What is a GPS tracker?
A GPS tracker, such as a PAJ GPS tracker, is a device that you can leave in your car, and can track from an app on your phone. The device can be hidden or put somewhere discreet, out of view.
What’s in the box?
With the Find & Protect GPS tracker you get the following in the box:
- Charging cable
- Instruction booklet
- GPS tracker
- M2M SIM card (already in the FINDER)
Why use a GPS tracker?
After our houses, cars are usually one of the most expensive things that we ever buy. It would be silly of us to not want to look after these things the best way that we can. Using a GPS tracker helps to give you that extra peace of mind when it comes to knowing where your car is!
Many of us don’t have driveways and have to rely on parking the car where we can. Sometimes, this might not be in front of your house. You might need to park in a multi-storey car park, you might need to park a few streets away or maybe, you need to leave it at the airport when you go on holiday. You can’t keep an eye on your car at all times but a GPS tracker allows you to see where it is.
What does it cost?
The PAJ GPS tracker does come with a monthly fee so this is something to consider when thinking about buying and using something like this. However, if you’re looking for additional peace of mind then a GPS tracker is something to seriously consider.
In terms of cost, there are a few options:
- £89.99 every 2 years
- £54.99 yearly
- £5.99 for 1 month
It’s great that there are options and that you’re able to choose depending on what you need the device for. You might be going on a shorter trip away and would like that extra bit of security, where a month will just be enough for you.
The PAJ Power Finder International
Nowadays, many of us are travelling abroad and either driving or hiring a car. It’s important to know that you can be safe no matter where you and your car are. The PAJ Power Finder International is an ideal option if want to use a tracker abroad, as this one will work in over 100 countries.
To use the tracker, you download an app on your phone and set up your account. The tracker has a sim card already inside when it arrives so set up is really minimal. The app can track where your car is at all times, and it can also show you previous routes so you also know where it has been.
One of the great features for the tracker is that you can set all kinds of alerts for it on the app. Not only can you set alerts for if your car leaves a certain area but you can also set an alert for when the battery is low… perfect if you think you might forget to charge the tracker!
It doesn’t cost too much to use the device, especially if you choose the 2 year subscription. At around £45 a year/ £3.75 a month, that’s not much to know that your car is safe and where it should be.
