My neighbor's brother recently moved in with him.  He lets his brother use his Jeep.  He wants to know if there's a way to track the location of his jeep using his smartphone. I told him I'd ask.

how much does he want to spend is the question... it's possible from $200 to $10000. Accuracy and intent is everything.

Hi Toddlynn

     I am not sure if your neighbor is looking to track where his brother goes or where his brother goes in his jeep,if he is just concerned about where he is taking his jeep ....wouldn't it be easier to get like " Pocket Finder" he can hide anyplace in the vehicle?Best Buy sells many different tracking devices for vehicles(or assets)that he can monitor from his computer or android phone for under $100.00

     There are even many devices for under $50.00 but not as good.........................LOL,he can get a tracking collar & leave it in the jeep also & spend less than $20.00....................Tell him to get creative!

      Just a suggestion                                                                                                                         Best Regards,Kwik

Just an outsiders perspective. If one brother doesn't trust another brother enough to use the jeep without considering a tracker. Why is he even allowing it to be used in the first place? If I was the brother using the jeep and I found out I wasn't trusted enough and was tracked without my knowledge. I would be more upset and annoyed than if I was told "No you can't use the jeep" from the very beginning.

Hi Animal!

    I agree,I would be highly offended also but this guy had to have  given the brother good reason to be so suspicious,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,who knows,maybe he is an ex-drug addict who has burned his own brother in the past many times and the brother wants to give him an opportunity to prove he is trustworthy now & does not want to discourage him but is not going to take any chances?There could be a million reasons................'

     I would just say "forget it" rather than be deceptive                                                                               

                                                                                                                      Have a great weekend-Kwiik

Try using Viper SmartStart. I don’t use it but I’ve read quite good reviews of it online.

if its a windows phone, that comes standard.  Under the find my phone option.  Its not real time, but you just update it each time.  Search antivirus programs for smart phones, most offer family options that include some type of "where are you software".  F secure had it, dont know if they still do
