Parents who want to keep tabs on where their charges are at all times will definitely be interested in the u-blox 5 chip that is capable of tracking GPS-enabled cellphones as well as other battery operated devices within indoor environments that often pose a challenge to any GPS system. The u-blox 5 is so sensitive that is can pick up signals as weak as -160 dBm from either the Galileo satellite network or GPS. The beauty of this device is it does not require much power to run, making it a viable chip to include in other mobile devices. Kids can heave a sigh of relief for now as no major handset manufacturers have plan of incorporating the u-blox 5 at the moment.
