By now well aware of the perils of losing a child thanks to shows such as Nancy Grace.  Well, hopefully no more will that tail make headlines thanks to the Amber Alert GPS 2G.

It’s a small GPS infused tracker that you attach to your child and simply by sending the text message “WHERE” to the device will provide the child’s location. Parents can even set it to show a ‘bread crumb’ of their child’s movement as well as set a safety zone, voice monitoring, temperature alert, destination reached notification and the ability to monitor the speed of a vehicle the child is riding in.  If the child finds themselves in an unsavory situation they can hit a special button to alert their parents.

Much like the NuM8 that we saw this year – they offer a comparable feature set but in a watch format – the Amber Alert GPS 2G requires a $10/month subscription and an initial investment of $379.99.
