This is a Andriod devcie for my kid but I don't have his gmail account. However, I can access his mobile and install apps if needed.

If you are able to install apps in your kid's smartphone, you will be using your Google account, right?

There are a number of GPS tacking options below.

Prey

I have tried it amd the free version allows you to track three devices under the same Google account if you are using the Android version.

Glympse

Google+ is more or less personal in nature, not my cup of tea.

Glympse is easy to use and it is a social platform among friends.

Life360 Family Locator is targeted for small families but only the paid version is OK.

Afterall, you need to have consent from your kid before you track their locations by GPS.
