No teenager wants to be on the business end of StreetEagle GPS Tracker, but beware — this technology is here and it's becoming more mainstream. Once the StreetEagle tracker is installed in your vehicle, it can easily be set to send an e-mail or text alerts about the car's travels in 2-minute intervals. These alerts will let your parents know whenever the vehicle moves and if it's going too fast. How thoughtful of it.
Three levels of service are available, creating complete charts of exact speed, routes and parking time. You can also set the tracker to send an alert if the car enters a specific area — like, say, someone's boyfriend's house or the mall. The system even lets parents lock or unlock doors remotely, and the ignition can be immobilized, effectively grounding you. The Big Brother tech has a small-business application as well: keeping delivery drivers on their routes and on time.
