Other recent articles and tips:

Did you know that mobile devices can be tracked even without having a GPS antenna in them?  Everything from a "dumb" feature phone to a "smartphone" give a location signal through triangulation of WiFi signals and cell tower signals. Even when GPS is on, your phone will use these other signals to more quickly hone in on your position. 

If you are worried about being stalked, then you must ensure that your phone or other mobile device has not been compromised by your abusive partner. Nowadays, it is very possible for a person to install a "secret" application on your phone that will send a tracking signal back to someone who wants to watch over you. Your best policy may be to turn off your phone when you are staying at your safe haven or shelter.
