Sharing is caring!

Car tracking devices are invaluable tools for monitoring either a single car or an entire fleet of vehicles. A real time car tracking device gives you up to the minute speed and location updates, including text or email alert based on parameters you set in advance.

For any company or person that runs a fleet of business vehicles, a tracking system will really take out the hassle associated with managing them, as well as improving efficiency and saving your money. All must note that tracking device is easier and cheaper to install than you think.

A car tracking device mainly works via GPS satellite navigation, although in some cases a radio frequency or cellular can be used if GPS coverage is poor. The actual setup is really simple, each vehicle transmits a signal to orbiting satellite computer. The vehicle information is displayed on maps, allowing you to monitor speed and exact where about.


There are several reasons you might want to know the exact where about and travelling conditions of your vehicle. Maybe you are keeping very tidy maintenance records and you want to be able to reference the performance history.Vehicle Tracking Device

If you live in an area where car theft is high, you might install one on one of your vehicles, so you can track it to its exact location. Far and away the most popular reason for investing in a GPS car tracking device is that you are the parent of a freshly – minded driver.

So how do you install a car tracking device?

#1. One must connect the supply line of the tracking device to the vehicle battery. Connect the ignition wire of the device to the second ignition of the car.

#2. Now place the device in such a way that is not covered by a metal surface. In many at times, the place under the dashboard is perfect. This is because, the dashboard being made of fiber does not block the signal like metal. On the board antenna or external antenna should be facing the sky.

#3: Every GPS tracking device will have its own way of being appropriately installed on a car. Those appropriate methods have to do with positioning of its power supply and the potential of being discovered. An additional reason has to do with you also want to collect car engine performance data along with the location.

#4: Depending on your objectives of installing the GPS tracking device, you may want to note all the four carefully.

  1. Are you trying to track the vehicle without the knowledge of the owner/driver?
  2. Are you trying to collect the engine performance date as well along with location of the car?
  3. Are you installing the GPS tracking device to protect the car from theft? Try to install the device so the GPS antenna is in full view of the sky and that no metal is shielding it or you won’t get proper GPS signal
