Michael Strahan Installs GPS Device in Girlfriend's Car to Spy on Her

Geek Out: Would You Use GPS to Keep Tabs on Your Partner?

Well here's a bummer use for GPS: NFL Player Michael Strahan installed a GPS device in girlfriend Nicole Murphy's car, which then text-messaged him her location. Seem a little controlling? Apparently he had reason to be suspicious, because she was cheating on him.

With all the GPS-based devices and cell phones available to us now, along with the willingness of people to participate in up-to-the-minute personal status updates, it's not hard to know what your significant other is doing at all times. In fact, if you have a well-connected partner, an error or lack of updates could tip you off that something's amiss without you even trying to keep track of them. However, I've asked before if you've spied on your S.O. and shown you new tech to spy with — but have you or would you use GPS in any way to find where your partner was?

stalking is never okay. if you have to do all that you need to end the relationship because you obviously have no trust.

i don't think so, but sometimes we all get driven to do things we don't think we'd do... and matters of the heart make us all crazy ;)

I would never use GPS to monitor anyone.

If you feel like you have to GPS track your SO then your relationship is already over, regardless to whether the other person is cheating or not.

I guess I'd consider it if I thought he was cheating but I'm not in that situation, so I really don't know.

Isn't that called stalking, albeit high-tech stalking?

Um no. We even use Loopt and I still forget that I have access to where he is. Then again I have no reason to be suspicious or worry.

my parents used to threaten me with that when i was in high school, but that was years ago so who knows if the technology was accessible back then hahah

No way. Why even be in a relationship if you can't trust the other person?

My friend ended up doing that with his wife after he noticed some suspicious text messages to a new number. She was cheating on him too.
