Advanced technology such as Global Positioning Systems (GPS) allows a person, vehicle or goods to be tracked using a tiny and discreet tracking device. Some of the smallest tracking devices offer real-time updates and fits in the palm of a hand. Most devices allow objects to be tracked inside buildings.

Spark Nano

About the size of a small 9-volt battery, the Spark Nano offers real-time tracking without the need to download any additional software. The tracker is discrete enough to track any object, whether it's a person, vehicle or container of goods. All real-time tracking information is available via the website.

When fully charged, the battery life gives five days of continuous tracking. An emergency panic button is located on the Spark Nano. It will allow the user to alert others of their whereabouts.

The Spark Nano is lightweight and small enough to fit in the palm of the hand. Both the antenna and the SIM card are internal. The use of external tracking devices with the Spark Nano is not necessary. The tracker has the ability to record the speed of a moving vehicle. It has an optional feature to alert others when the GPS tracker goes outside of a designated area.

Telic Picotrack

Measuring not much larger than a match stick, the Picotrack is small enough to be hidden nearly everywhere. The alarm feature is useful for anyone who works or lives alone. The device is ideal for workers such as lumber jacks, hunters, the elderly and the handicapped.

The Picotrack is rechargeable via the USB port. The software's enhanced sensitivity allows the tracker to be followed even while in buildings. The tracker must be close to a window.

PT-200

Only inches in size, the Rocky Mountain PT-200 GPS tracking unit offers real-time tracking with full-location information. With each recording, the PT-200 records the complete address. The recording is also given a date and time stamp.

The built-in low battery indicator alerts the user when the battery needs to be recharged. After fully charged, the battery life offers three weeks of continuous tracking.

The sensitivity allows the PT-200 tracker to be tracked inside most closed areas, including trailers and closed packages. External antennas are not needed. The logged locations are colour coded. The PT-200 uses Qualcomm's CDMA GPS technology.

GoTrek7 GPS Tracker

Waterproof with an excellent receiving ability, the Gotrek7 GPS tracker is smaller than a credit card. The weatherproof quad band tracker gives the user updates every 10 seconds. Fully charged batteries provide up to 10 days of continuous use.
