Life without GPS trackers cannot be imagined. No longer do we need to worry about vehicles whereabouts. With real time monitoring you can easily find out their location. Moreover, apart from real time tracking, the latest models come with several other useful features. Like for instance, maintenance alerts are a feature that will help you improve the efficiency of your vehicle.

Keeping in view the installation in mind, make sure that you follow these simple tips when actually purchasing the GPS tracking device.

  • Make sure that you buy a device that is compact in size. This way it can be easily installed in any part of the car.
  • Go in for a device whose colour matches that of your car. Once it blends, it would be difficult for others to find out the presence of the device.
  • Another important thing to notice is the battery life. It is always preferable to go in for a battery with a long battery life. This is to ensure that they don’t run out of charge during long drives.
  • Motion sensitive trackers are an excellent choice. This energy-saving feature will ensure that the tracker is active only when the vehicle moves.

Now that you chose your GPS device, next comes the step of installing it in the right place. The place which you choose should be such that it should not interrupt the signal. Remember, the GPS tracking software will not work if there is no signal.

Beneath the dashboard
One of the best places for installing the device is beneath the dashboard. If you know how to open the dashboard it is suggested that you place the GPS beneath. The driver won’t be able to find out the presence of the device. The device however can pick up clear signals. So, remember, that when it comes to one of the best places to conceal the device, there is nothing to beat the dashboard.

Inside the brake lights
This is one place where no one will doubt that there is something inside. The process is again not that complicated. All that you need to do is to remove the light cover and then place the device inside. Needless to say, in this case you will need to go in for a device that is small in size, for otherwise it won’t fit inside the light.

Inside the car cushion
Another top-secret place to place the vehicle tracking system is inside the car’s cushion. This way you can ensure that there is no blockage of signal too. The chances of any other person finding out the presence of the device are also slim. In fact, this is one of the most preferred choices for placing these devices nowadays.

No to certain places
There are a few places which are best avoided when placing the GPS device. For example, the place where your driver places his cellphone is best avoided. This is because all vehicle tracking solutions are known to have issues whenever they are placed near a cellphone. There are also chances that this could lead to the data inside the device getting corrupt. It is something that you must always keep in mind when selecting a site for the device.
