GPS tracking from any device using SMS! observer is the perfect solution for those who need more than just an alarm and want to track their cars location, or finding a lost/stolen Android.
Are you the victim of grand theft auto? If so, get observer and turn any Android device into an affordable asset GPS tracker. observer is an affordable alternative to LoJack and can be used to track and locate your car, fleet vehicles, boats, RVs, motorcycles, and anything else. You can also set a geo-fence to receive an alert when your asset exits a predefined area.
How it works: Say you want to track your car. Hide your Android phone in the car with observer installed. Then use any other phone to send a text message command to observer. You will receive your cars location as a Google maps link.
Now lets say you parked your car and won't be back for a while, you can send another SMS message command to set a geo-fence around its current location. If someone takes off with your car, you will receive a text message alerting you with it's current location as a Google maps link. It will then continue to update you of it's whereabouts until you turn the alarm off via a text message.
