When your teenager says he is just driving to Jimmy’s house, is that all he is doing?

Does your teen have a lead foot?

Did someone just steal your car?

Maybe, most important of all, who keeps stealing your lunch?

All of these questions can now be answered thanks to the eZoom GPS Tracker.  The eZoom is a tiny box that you can place in your car, bike, bag, pocket or even lunch box.  Using an app or web browser you can track the eZoom and get instant alerts based on its location and speed…at least those are the claims in the press release.

Of course here at Dad Does we review products, not press releases!  Please take a few moments to watch our hands-on video review of the eZoom GPS Tracker -
