Nice to know I am not the only one concerned about kids and motor bikes, the first bike lasted six months before I finally took it back and sold it, he was refusing to wear crash helmet all the time, removing mirrors, disconnecting mile meter so could not monitor and going outside agreed set limits

 

At the same time he was banished to temple for two years

 

When he came back he went to hotel school, on a push bike, for the first year, recently got him a nice motor bike again and so far so good, he is respecting the rules most of the time

 

We do not want him killed like many other young kids

 

I still think about a GPS, or maybe just tell him one is fitted and well hidden !

You can track his phone via https://www.google.com/android/find or even see his movement history. You could also track a GPS enabled android device installed on his motorbike for only the cost of the sim card and data plan.

My son has a gmail account - I have the password, as he can't remember it if he gets signed out.

 

I'm not sure how this is supposed to work.

I tried to "Find My Device" by first only entering his email address:

It said "Couldn't send a Google prompt because your phone can't be reached"

That seems to suggest it will send him a message, which is obviously not what I want?

Hmm, I think weakness there would be him wanting proof by asking where he'd just been.

Find my device need the phone to be reachable via the internet and it does send a notification that the phone is being tracked. For the map history the information is here: https://support.google.com/maps/answer/6258979?co=GENIE.Platform%3DAndroid&hl=en or here if checking from a pc: https://support.google.com/maps/answer/6258979?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en&oco=0

Right, thanks. In that case we definitely don't want that option.

I tried "gps one C1 mag tracker" on Lazada as you said, but there was no result.

Could you be more specific?

Problem with these trackers is limited range and battery life. Looking for one with country wide range which connects to the vehicle battery.

any tracker that can work as a mobile, not SMS but DATA sim card ? I use mobiles but they use a lot of battery and even on powerbank it needs to be often refilled.

 

any help ?
