Gadget Pr0n: GPS Snitch »

We’re living in a tech obsessed world. To not be aware of the latest technology is to welcome ridicule from your friends and peers. Is that what you want? Keep checking back here for new tech reviews three times a week and save yourself from ridicule.

GPS Snitch

What You Need to Know

  • It uses GPS technology along with GSM cell networks to gather all the data like location and speed, so this means you have to be in GSM cell phone coverage
  • You can also "arm" the Snitch so it has motion detection or a perimeter alert, and it will send emails or text messages when it moves
  • Send commands via your cell phone like turning it on or arming it
  • Everything is easily laid out and all the most used features are really simple
  • You can set up schedules to track, continuously get locations and set up alerts for your cell phone
  • It saves all your previous locations and alerts
  • It's a fun gadget, but it's also a great car theft solution


  • $400 plus $30 activation fee, plus a monthly fee which can be up to $25 a month
  • At the end of the day, you're gonna pay about $450 to start, and about $700 after the first year
  • At it's cheapest, LoJack is about $900 a year
  • The Snitch is cheaper, but it doesn't necessarily always have coverage, and it might not repel thieves.
  • It's expensive for a toy, but it's an excellent tool.
  • If you're looking for an anti-theft device that's portable and easy to use, buy this. You won't be disappointed

    saw the show last night and thought that was an expensive gadget with who knows what use. well, i wish i had one right now!!!
    my girlfriend just picked up her parents (visiting for the first time) from the airport and they are all in the car lost god knows where!
    she has no sense of orientation and right now all three of them are yelling on the cellphone not knowing where they are and poiting in three different directions to the south.
    i am on the phone for the fouth time giving them the directions and it is "my fault" they are lost. GREAT!!!
