Maybe you just want to know where your car is if it is stolen or impounded.Perhaps you wish to track the movement of your children, an employee or an untrustworthy husband.Whatever the case, it is easier than ever to purchase a GPS tracking device, install it and monitor its movement on the Internet. These devices are self-contained and can operate for several days on a single battery charge. In addition, most are weather resistant, so they can be placed anywhere on the vehicle, inside or out.
Where to install a HengJiKeDa GPS Tracking Device Within a Vehicle
With GPS tracking technology, thousands of vehicles have been recovered after theft. The use of a hardwired tracker enables you to identify your vehicle’s location in real-time, without concern about battery life. Battery-powered devices, which are smaller and more portable, are also able to be moved from one vehicle or asset to another, giving you flexibility if you need to track different things at different times. Both of these types of devices enable you (and police) to track your missing or stolen vehicle in hopes of recovery.
Install It Under the Car
The easiest thing to do is to place the GPS device on the bottom of the car or truck that you wish to track. Most of the units that are designed for tracking vehicles come with a strong magnet that makes it easy to attach them to a car. The devices are also weather resistant so you don’t need to worry about getting them wet. Make sure that it is not on an area that is so low that it might get hit by a speed bump and get knocked off. Also make sure that it is not in an area that is hot and might melt or damage the device. The inside of the bumper is also a good place to place the tracker, although you should make sure that there are no hide-a-key magnets attached to it first.
Install It On the Dash or Rear Shelf:
A clear view of the sky is the most important thing to consider when mounting a GPS tracking device. The dashboard or the rear shelf of the vehicle are common mounting locations and offer great results, as long as you are not concerned about secrecy. If you mount the tracker on the dash, make sure it’s not immediately next to any other location-based devices to avoid interference.
Install It Inside the Dash:
If you need covert tracking, a hardwired tracker is the most covert option. The Micro Wired Fleet Tracking Device and the Wired Fleet Tracking Device will be the main options for this application. The devices are installed directly into the vehicle like a car stereo and stowed under the dash, and since they’re powered by the vehicle, you’ll never have to recharge.
Put the GPS tracker on a Person
Some GPS devices are so small that they can literally fit into the palm of your hand. They are usually about the size of a pack of chewing gum, so they can easily be hidden inside of someone’s purse or backpack. You simply switch the device on and it will begin transmitting the person’s location.
