How to Detect If Someone Put a GPS Tracking Device on My Car?
If you're like many people, you may be wondering how to detect if someone has placed a GPS tracking device on your vehicle.
GPS Tracking devices have gotten so small, they are commonly the size of a pack of cigarettes, and some are even as small as a quarter! . You can navigate here www.trackmategps.com/ to know more about GPS tracking device.
The first thing you need to know is that there are two different types GPS tracking devices:
A GPS Logger is a passive device, meaning that it doesn't actively transmit your GPS location. This means whoever put a GPS logger on your car will have to place it on your car, and then retrieve it later in order to view the driving data, which is stored on the device. A popular example of this is the Sleuthgear iTrail GPS Logger, which is only 1.5"X1.5" big.
A GPS Tracker is an active device, meaning that it actively transmits your location "live", usually to a secure website, where the person who placed it there can view your location and driving information via a web browser or special program. Once they put it on there, they do not have to retrieve it, they can just view the information online. They will likely come back later though, because the battery life on active tracker is usually less than 30 days.
