Q:

How can you make a homemade tracking device?

A:

Users can create a homemade tracking device by using a prepaid phone, getting a data plan for the phone, creating an Insta-Mapper account and accessing the Internet. The overall price can vary depending on whether the user already has a prepaid phone to use.

Make sure the prepaid phone has GPS because that is vital to the tracking function. Turn on the phone's Internet function, and turn the volume on everything to zero. Next, register an Insta-Mapper account, download the Insta-Mapper app to the phone, and launch the application. Input the device ID that the registration gave and give the phone permission to access GPS. Hide the phone if necessary, and use the Insta-Mapper website to track it as needed.
