There are several reasons you may want to purchase and install a GPS tracking device on a vehicle, whether it is for insurance reasons, security, peace of mind, simply being able to keep track of your fleet vehicles, or even for other personal reasons.

Before purchasing a GPS tracking device, it’s worth doing some research to see which one(s) best suit your needs. Where to install a GPS tracking device on a car depends on if you’re wanting overt or covert tracking and if your GPS tracking unit is battery-powered, hardwired, or plug-and-play. Also, deciding the location of the tracker is important because if you install the device in a spot where there are obstacles or interferences that block satellite signals, the accuracy of the vehicle tracking device will be reduced.

Types of GPS Tracking Devices

Covert GPS Trackers

Covert GPS tracking devices for cars are devices that the user can place on a vehicle that allows them to monitor the location of the vehicle without the driver’s knowledge. There are countless reasons that you might want to use a covert GPS tracking device: one big reason is for surveillance by private detectives, law enforcement, or even individuals like suspicious spouses.

Another reason people may choose to use a covert GPS tracking device is for fleet tracking. By tracking vehicles in their fleet, employers can be sure whether or not their employees are using their vehicles for only business-related ventures. Covert tracking can also be used to monitor delivery times and routes for your business.
