How do I choose GPS tracking equipment for my car?

GPS stands for Global Positioning System, which uses geolocation and timing signals from satellites to determine the coordinates of a specific tracked object anywhere in the world, regardless of weather conditions.

Today, GPS is useful both in everyday life and in the world of work — for example, to ensure the safety of people, animals, valuable home or business assets, or to protect work tools and cars.


GPS trackers mounted on various vehicles (not only cars, but also motorbikes, ATVs, bicycles, motorboats, tractors, and so on) are no longer a rarity, and their function is very simple - they allow you to record the exact location of the tracked objects and/or monitor their movements in real time 24/7, either by using a mobile app on a smartphone, or by logging on to a dedicated website, where you can find the information about the tracking object's location and the trajectory of its movement.


GPS tracking equipment for vehicles is often used by logistics companies that need to monitor the location and movement of their goods. GPS trackers help to locate the vehicle, track its speed, trace its trajectory and route history, facilitate mileage calculation, and protect your property in case your vehicle is stolen.

GPS trackers are also useful for companies whose employees use company-owned cars. This smart tracker allows you to see and assess whether an employee is using the company car conscientiously, i.e., for the purpose of the job, whether the time spent travelling for work is being used productively, whether the route is being followed in accordance with the work plan, etc.


When choosing a GPS tracker, the first thing to do is to assess your individual needs and know a few important things.

First, decide what is important to you — whether it is just to know the exact location of the object you are tracking, or to keep track of the location and trajectory of the object.

Secondly, assess which model of vehicle tracking equipment you need. GPS tracking equipment for the car may come with:

  • a built-in battery that will need to be recharged or replaced from time to time. Therefore, make sure you have regular access to your car, as the GPS tracker will need to be removed from the vehicle to recharge the battery and reinserted once it is charged. If you know that this will be a possibility, we recommend that you choose a GPS tracker with a shorter standby time. Such tracking equipment for cars is usually smaller and less expensive.

If you have limited ability to charge the GPS tracker's battery regularly, then it is advisable to choose a device with a long standby mode. These trackers are equipped with a powerful magnet that allows the device to be securely attached to the bottom of the vehicle, so you don't have to go inside the car to recharge the device's battery. The new generation of GPS trackers can have very long standby times — even months! And of course, these technical possibilities are reflected in the price of the device.

  • a connection to a power source (the car's electrical system). These types of GPS trackers are usually designed for the safety of your own vehicle. The tracker is mounted directly on the car's battery under the bonnet using special clip connectors.

In our online shop you will find both time-tested and state-of-the-art GPS tracking equipment for cars. All GPS trackers have excellent technical performance, ensuring highly accurate object tracking and security. Signals and information from satellites to GPS trackers are stored on servers, allowing real-time tracking of the object being tracked, as well as the ability to review previously collected data.
