does this device work while charging? if it was charging in a vehicle, could it be tracked in real time during the charging process?

    The PocketFinder personal device will provide GPS location information as long as it's not in sleep mode - regardless of whether or not it's in the charger. Some customers have purchased 12 volt vehicle chargers and plugged them into their vehicle's cigarette lighter to charge their device. While this is not a recommended course of action, the device should still locate as long as the car is in motion.

    Please note that PocketFinder devices provide "near" real time location information. The PocketFinder personal device can automatically obtain GPS locates as often as every 2 minutes, and you can manually request location information on demand.
