Toss one of these tracksticks in your child’s/spouse’s/neighbor’s/colleagues car/luggage/lunchbox and record a precise record of everywhere they go:

The Track Stick records its own location, time, date, speed, heading and altitude at preset intervals. With over 1Mb of memory, it can store months of travel information. All recorded history can be outputted to the following formats:

RTF (Detailed text file with .html map links)
XLS (Microsoft Excel spread sheets)
HTML (Webpage with graphics and maps)
KML (Proprietary Google Earth file)

The Track Stick receives signals from twenty four satellites orbiting the earth. With this information, the Track Stick can precisely calculate its own position anywhere on the planet to within fifteen meters.
