Good Deal but...

This is a small price to pay for your kids safety and feel it is worth it.

But not so sure it would work just to keep tabs on your troubled kid/Spouse. Does this work when the handset is off? I don't believe it does. So your kid or spouse could elude any detection by shutting their phone off and using a friends or lovers. Also there is a way to shut off the GPS on the phone anyway except for the 911.

How is this cheaper?

It used to be $10. That covered all lines on a family plan.
