GPS Tracker for car

GPS tracking devices for cars are becoming more popular and valuable. They give you peace of mind, and as technology advances, users can enjoy newer and better benefits.

Here is an overview of the benefits of using GPS for cars:

  • Vehicle Security: Car tracking devices offer owners real time GPS location data. This is exceptionally valuable in the event of a vehicle theft, as it can enable authorities to recover the missing vehicle quickly. Additional features of vehicle trackers can also offer a range of other benefits. 
  • Fleet Management: Business owners who wish to monitor their employees and business assets consider a Car tracker device an indispensable tool. The data insights provided can also help managers monitor driver behaviour for better team management. 
  • Maintenance Monitoring: Vehicle tracking devices provide deep insights into vehicle needs, such as maintenance schedules or upcoming maintenance requirements due to driver behaviour. This tool is great for fleet managers who want to prioritise maintenance scheduling to reduce unexpected downtime. 
  • Asset Tracking: GPS trackers can also be used beyond vehicles to monitor the location and movement of valuable assets and minimise loss and theft. 
  • Insurance Benefits: Some insurance companies offer discounts and rebates for drivers who install GPS tracking tools in their vehicles, assuring them of safe driving habits.  
  • Emergency Response: In case of accidents or emergencies, GPS tracking can be crucial in quickly locating the vehicle and dispatching emergency services to the location of the incident, potentially saving lives. 

Understanding Car GPS Trackers

A GPS tracker is a device that utilizes the Global Positioning System (GPS) to determine and record its precise location accurately and provide GPS navigation. It works by receiving signals from satellites orbiting the Earth and triangulating the device’s relative position. 

GPS trackers come in various forms, including standalone units that can be attached to vehicles, assets, or individuals or integrated systems that are used in conjunction with other electronic devices, like smartphones. 

The location data collected can then be accessed through an app or website. GPS trackers are widely used for vehicle tracking, fleet management, personal safety, asset tracking, outdoor recreation, pet monitoring, and more. 

Some key features of GPS trackers include: 

  • Real Time Tracking Information
  • Geofencing
  • Historical Route Playback
  • SOS Button
  • Versatile Mounting Options
  • Battery Life
  • Compatibility with Integrated Systems
  • User-Friendly Apps and Interfaces

There are many benefits to using GPS trackers for various personal and business applications. Some of these may be:

Personal Safety for Families:

  • Teen Safety and Monitor: Parents can monitor their teen drivers' locations in reliable real time tracking and receive alerts if they wander beyond predetermined boundaries, called geofences.
  • Elderly Safety and Monitor: GPS trackers can help families keep track of elderly drivers, especially if they struggle with health issues like dementia which can affect their safety and well-being. 

GPS tracking for Businesses: 

  • Fleet Management: Fleet managers can use GPS tracking to optimize routing, monitor driver behaviour, improve fuel efficiency, and more, leading to cost savings and increased productivity. 
  • Asset Tracking: Companies can use tracking tools to monitor the locations of assets and valuable equipment in the field and on the move. 
  • Employee Safety: Workers in the field, especially those who operate solo, can be monitored by dispatch for quick deployment of assistance in cases of emergency. 

Choosing the Best GPS Tracker for Car

When choosing the best GPS tracker for your vehicle, there are so many styles on the market that it can become challenging to weigh your options. One of the biggest differentiators is whether or not there are monthly subscription fees. Some brands charge fees, but the hardware is often more affordable, whereas trackers that do not include subscription fees usually have a higher up-front cost at purchase. 

Subscription Services

Why choose a device that includes a monthly fee subscription service? Often, these devices have better functionality because the user is paying for the service, network upkeep, and ongoing customer support. 

Applications for GPS Tracking 

Choosing the right GPS tracker depends on your specific needs. You may select different trackers depending on whether you are using them to monitor teen drivers, or elderly drivers or protect and maintain a fleet of delivery vehicles. 

Technical Considerations

When choosing the right tracker for your needs, consider the technical specifications that are indispensable for your application instead of those that would be unnecessary. 

For example, if you are using a tracker to monitor an elderly relative, you would want to purchase a device that offers an SOS button that can be pressed in the event of a fall.

However, that same feature would not be needed for pet tracking as your pet would not be able to push a button to alert you of a need. Instead, if you have an elderly pet, for example, that is prone to wander, you may want a tracker that monitors their vitals and sends you updates about emergencies.

Other technical specs you might want to assess are: 

  • Real time tracking
  • Geofencing
  • App integration
  • 4G LTE capabilities
  • Obd ii port (If You need)

Advanced Features of GPS Trackers

GPS vehicle trackers come in a variety of form factors to ensure that you get the right tool for the job.

You may need to select a hidden and discreet tracker to ensure that it isn’t tampered with in the event of a theft, purchasing one of the more compact powerful trackers on the market like BrickHouse Security’s Spark Nano 7. For tracking that takes you out into the wild, you may want to select a waterproof device or magnetic mount to ensure that your tracker stays put, even in inclement weather.

Additional features of GPS trackers that can benefit you include functions like geofences and real-time alerts. These features allow you to monitor the tracker's whereabouts and movements without requiring you to sit in front of your computer or phone, watching in reliable real time location tracking. You can also program the mobile app to notify you when certain events take place. 

Installation and Maintenance

While installing a GPS vehicle tracker will be slightly different based on the vehicle and the tracker, these are the primary steps to follow: 

  • Select the location of the tracker. This should be near enough to the power source, if necessary, hidden from view if discretion is your goal, and positioned so that the device does not need to operate through multiple materials to obtain a signal. 
  • Prepare the area by ensuring you have a mounting location where the device fits and can run the necessary wiring. 
  • Complete the installation by attaching the mount and hardwiring the device according to the manufacturer’s instructions, if applicable. 
  • Test the device to ensure you get a good signal and that location reporting is functional and accurate. 
  • Secure any remaining loose ends, such as wires, once you have verified that the device is functioning in its new home. 

Not comfortable installing the device yourself? You can also hire a professional to do the installation for you. We recommend contacting a local mechanic or checking with the manufacturer of your device for recommended installers. 

Once your device is installed properly, maintenance may include periodic diagnostics to ensure that it is functioning optimally, checking for loose wires or poor connections, and making sure that the device’s mount is secure. 

Maximizing Benefits 

Are you wondering how to maximize your benefits with GPS tracking? Equipping your car with GPS can help reduce insurance costs by providing real-time data on vehicle location, enabling insurers to assess risk more accurately. GPS tracking also facilitates theft prevention and recovery by allowing owners and authorities to track stolen vehicles, increasing the likelihood of swift recovery and reducing loss for insurers. 


Choosing the right GPS tracker is crucial. To maximize its benefits, consider your vehicle’s specific needs and which features will provide the most benefits. Take the time to carefully evaluate your options, and if you have questions or would like guidance, our team is always available to help with your investment decisions.
