The issue with trackr is it isn't practical to use on items that could get stolen since its sole purpose is to just find items that you may possibly misplace and acts as a pager. It still has to connect through bluetooth for you to use it. Even with its GPS crowd feature, you're still hoping that someone else is using trackr in order for you to get an idea of where the item is, and even then they still have to be within 100ft. Let's say somebody does come within 100ft of your stolen OW, they could be gone from the location by the time you actually arrive there. Trackimo uses real-time gps tracking using a GSM network

OW 3G GPS-GSM Tracking device
I know everyone wants to protect their investment and are looking of ways to do that such as locking the wheel at high speeds if stolen hahaha but then there's this too...
I haven't opened up the OW yet but what do you guys think of this? Think it'll fit under the foot pads? Free GPS service for the first year then $5/mo after. My only concern is how long it lasts so you don't have to keep opening up the OW to charge it.
$140 GPS Tracker, Free shipping, 1 year GSM service included
$110+$3 shipping on Massdrop w/o GSM service
RE: Places in NJ/NYC where banned
@Roy Yeah, I've only been told that one time that I couldn't ride it there so I just left to see if it was true of the other county park but I haven't been asked to leave yet or given any trouble.
Every time someone stops me to ask what it is, I explain it and offer to let them try. Not having even owned the OW for a month, I've easily taught 100% of the 40+ people how to ride it comfortably and so far got 4-6 people to buy one with a handful of people still seriously considering buying one. I'd say I've been doing a pretty good job as an ambassador so far :D
Places in NJ/NYC where banned
Where have you guys been told that you're not allowed to ride your onewheels? I'm from Northern NJ and I was stopped at Overpeck County Park and told that "hoverboards" are banned in all county parks and that it even says so on the signs before entering. I didn't confirm that with their park but the guy was nice and polite enough to just explain that the reason is because there have been people going there to practice and ended up having an accident and then the usual cracking of the skulls spiel.
Immediately after leaving, I went to Saddle Brook County Park and I didn't see any signs about "hoverboards" and I've been going there for about two weeks now without being stopped, except by people wondering what I was riding and you know, the usual.
My questions to you guys in the area:
Where have you been told you're not allowed to ride it
With the article that talks about how hoverboards and onewheels are banned in NYC, have you guys who participate in NYC meetups ever been stopped/fined? I have to go visit my company's HQ in NYC and was wondering if I could just ride my onewheel partly to there after parking my car somewhere.
Is it possible to fill out your own waiver and release of liability to give to a park or anyone who tells you that it's not allowed because it's a safety issue and they're simply trying to look out for you and for themselves legally?
RE: NYC riders? (But open to all looking to ride and have a good time)
@RLY I'd be down to ride sometime in October. I got mine 2 weeks ago but I need to save up this month for TwitchCon and that toll coming from NJ is a killer lol
