How do I GPS track someone?
You install Chirp, and they install Chirp - pair together and track away in real time, with place alerts, messages and more!
Once you install the Chirp GPS app, you simply connect with your friends, family, and others by “pairing”, or by sending them an invite using any method you like. Pairing, or inviting takes just seconds, and once you are paired with someone, you can track them, send them messages, get directions to them, and all of the other benefits Chirp GPS has become famous for.
Do I need any other hardware to GPS track someone?
No. That is the best part about Chirp GPS. Additional hardware requires just “one more thing” to keep track of itself. Battery life, recharging, losing it, or having another device that requires it’s own service is just too much of a pain! Everyone has their cell phone with them 24/7 -so why not just use that to keep track of them too! Chirp GPS doesn’t need any additional hardware to let you keep up with your friends, family, and co-workers.
Is GPS tracking really free?
Yes, Chirp is free to try with all of the features for an entire week. If you like it, the monthly subscription starts after 7 days. If you don’t like it, cancel the subscription from within the app and you can keep using the free features within Chirp - forever! (yes, really).
What is included in the premium version?
The premium (paid subscription) version of Chirp GPS has several benefits over the free version.
Advanced location sharing including speed alerts, route reports, messaging, panic functions, broadcasting, automatic distance measurements, track by cell phone number, and so much more.
How long do you retain location information?
We store all records for 365 days from the time of entry. They are automatically deleted at that time, but you can download each year's worth of GPS tracking into Excel format to archive for your records.
How accurate is Chirp GPS?
Chirp GPS uses the GPS hardware already built into your device to track. Manufactures differ, but location results are usually within 3-5 feet of someones actual location. Buildings, trees, indoor locations, and other outside interference call all effect the GPS accuracy.
