Best Buy has announced the release of the Little Buddy Tracker to its Insignia product line. The Little Buddy Tracker helps you keep track of your child’s location. All you need to do is drop this little device into their backpack or lunch box.

The Little Buddy Tracker then uses GPS and cellular technology to provide you with real-time location data using either your computer or smart phone. Parents just log on to the Insignia GPS Locator website and they’ll see a map of their child’s precise location.

You can also tell the device where you child is supposed to be during any given period of time and the Little Buddy Tracker will send you an SMS text message if they leave the assigned area during the specified time.

You’ll also get a warning when the device’s battery is running low. If you have more than one child, you can use multiple Little Buddy Trackers to check the locations of all of them.

The device is marketed as a “child tracker,” but you could also use it to keep track of your pet or even to find your car if it’s stolen.

Some say that the device is insulting and is equivalent to putting your children on a leash, but with sexual predators lurking around seemingly every corner, this little device along with the free Child Safety ID kit just might save your child’s life.

The Insignia Little Buddy Child Tracker is available in Blue and Green for $99.99.
