I want to prove to my parents that I know and can prove that my sister is going out and buying drugs with her looser boyfriend and not taking care of there kid. Anyone heard of a company that makes a unit that works? It may seem like a **** move on my part, but she needs to grow up and take care of her kid; because shes too busy getting high. Thanks guys.

There are various ways you can do this but theyre not necessarily legal. Invasion of privacy and what not. Just get an iphone or an android enabled phone and download a tracking app and drop it in the car for a bit.

If you already have one it shouldnt be too hard to do.

Otherwise you can try a company dedicated to it but this should save you some effort...

^ Ouch. Sorry to hear your sister is going downhill.

Sounds like a lose-lose scenario. If your parents don't believe you, they'll probably figure out a way to not believe whatever "proof" you come up with.

ehhh from what i understand you have 2 options, a hardwired setup that you have to wire into the car and gives live data feeds every 30sec-2min or the other options is simply a gps route tracker. what i mean by route tracker is it is small, about the size of a deck of card or half that size and has a magnet to be thrown at a vehicle or put on the otherside. otherone has no magnet. now these types you put on or in teh vehicle, let them go out and get in trouble, then return home. upon return you have to go and grab teh device plug it into your computer via usb and it maps out the destinations and paths usually on google earth.

both are fairly expensive due to concealability. but what it coems down to is do you need live data and live tracking or do you just want the info at some point and not need it live....

used to sell the land air sea one at pepboys as well as the zoomback

Not sure where you think you will use this data but as was already mentioned it is illegal for you to do this, even to your sister. I am fairly certain it will not be admissable in a court if that is what your after?

You could always higher a Private Investigator for a couple days and have him/her track your sister. Not only will the info be 3rd party (not coming from you), he/she will be able to find out what exactly she is doing, not just where she is going...

Also, legal!

Thanks guys. Im not wanting to take it to court, just throw her in jail. Make her get a wake up call and clean up. Or just stay in jail. Either way her looser bf and her need to both grow up and stop having my parents pay for it all. It really makes me mad to see them both use my parents. Either of them have jobs or try to get them. They dont even take care of there kid. Sorry, I had to vent a little there.

Ehhh if you're wanting to use it to get her in jail and get the police involved I might suggest not doing teh tracker and get the PI like someone else said. the gps tracker is illegal and won't hold up with the cops or court

If you think the kids are not being adequately cared for you should be able to contact Child Protective Services and file a complaint. They can then investigate the complaint and determine whether the kids should stay in that situation.

http://chfs.ky.gov/dcbs/dpp/childsafety.htm -
The Department for Community Based Services performs child protective services functions for the state. Regional staff receives child abuse allegations, conducts investigations and consults with central office specialists as necessary. Central office specialists provide technical assistance on policy issues, conduct case reviews in local offices and track child fatalities.

If you believe a child is being abused, neglected or is dependent, you should call the Child Protection Hot Line number below or the Protection and Permanency office in your county.​

Child Protection Hot Line: 1-877-KYSAFE1 or 1-877-597-2331

http://chfs.ky.gov/dcbs/dpp/faqchildabuse.htm

If Child Protective Services would find evidence of drug use in the house, then they can bring in law enforcement as needed.

The best bet would be the PI like stated, otherwise, Zoomback is a nice little unit. Most of my friends have this on their bikes to prevent theft.

just get a voice recorder or something. you'll find out way more usable dirt then with a gps tracker. It'll be cheaper and better. Just look for one that has really long battery life so you can leave it in there. You can call me james bond kthx.

That's a tough one there, you shouldn't expect to get the same results from a voice recorder as a gps tracker because all you get from a voice recorder is a VOICE but no location and if shes doing something bad you won't know if she is lying or not. It's arguable and another thing is, you can't expect her "say" her exact location every time. SO I think it's best to put 2 devices in the car?

Own an iphone?

Setup mobile me on the phone Apple - iPhone - How to set up Find My iPhone

and go to this website and log in. http://www.me.com

You can locate a lost iphone using this. Its free.

Make sure its password locked, muted and vibrate is off and hide it in the car somewhere. You may not even have to hide it very well. No one will suspect the phone is tracking them. You only have so many hours of standby time on these phones as well so remember that.

Better yet, does SHE have an iphone? If your really slick you can setup tracking on that without her knowing. Real james bond stuff.

Example screenshot.
