7 things to consider before buying a gps tracker for your car

Gps trackers used to be something you only could see in the James Bond movies, where the special agent had an full overwiev on the cars location at all times. Today the technology is both availible and affordable for everyone. So why do most people shy away from using this technology in their cars, considering the potentially huge value of some vehicles?

Would you want a GPS tracker for a car that connects directly to the cars battery? Or would you choose a portable tracker that you easily could hide inside the car?

GPS tracker for car

Installing a gps tracker directly to the cars battery can be a very complicated and costly process. You also may have to hire a profesional to do the instalation for you. This will be depending on what model or brand you own. On the positive side, if you install the tracker to your battery, you never have to charge the tracker as it constantly gets power form the car.

A gps car tracker that you can easily hide in your car, and one that does not require an instalation, will be the easiest and most affordable option. The tracker will be usable right out of the box, and no connection to the car is needed. Just place it in a safe and hidden place.

The ultimate option would be to combine these two types of car tracker. By doing so you can create a portable tracker that you can hide inside your car or other places, but you can also install the same car tracker directly into the vehicle with an additional wire kit.

This is exactly how our new Tail It + gps for cars works. The tracker is no bigger than a VISA card, and still manages 8 weeks of batterytime on a single charge. Something that is really impressive for such a small device. The tracker also has wireless charging, and comes with a multi-connection kit inside the box. This means you can place it inside the car or connect it to the car-battery. It works both ways, and is ready to be used right out of the box!

Check the software before buying!

The Tracker is basically just a hardware that you either install or place somewhere. You will rearly touch the tracker again, with the excepion of changing the object you want to track. The product that you really are using on an every day basis is the software. You are using the software to interact with your tracker, so the software should be both safe and userfriendly.
