At some point it is inevitable that parents will struggle with the dilemma of how much free reign to give their teenagers. Today’s challenges are unlike any before. With the internet, texting and various forms of social media, the odds of teens landing in compromising situations are pretty good. It isn’t possible to hold their hand and guide them in every situation. Many parents feel they need some extra help keeping tabs on their kids, so they’re turning to technical gadgets to help them read text messages, monitor internet activity and even track driving behaviors.

Scenario: Sally tells Mom and Dad she is going to Jane’s house to study. But she’s really driving 10+ miles past Jane’s house to her boyfriend’s house (whose parents happen to be out of town). Sounds very familiar to many of us, right? Heck – WE DID IT!! 

In the past, there was really nothing parents could do but hope for the truth. Today, many parents who choose to monitor their teen’s driving behavior, choose DashTrac. 

DashTrac is a discreet GPS tracking device for vehicles. It easily plugs into a vehicle’s OBD II port (located under steering wheel) and monitors true speed, hard stops, GPS location (with bread crumb trails) and has geofence capabilities (think of drawing an invisible fence around an area you want your teen to stay out of) which trigger alerts. It even has a maintenance alert feature to manage common periodic vehicle maintenance requirements. 

Basically, DashTrac offers parents peace of mind when their teenage drivers hit the road.
