3. OBD GPS TRACKER

You can install a GPS tracking device nearly anywhere on a car or fleet vehicle- in the front or rear bumper, wheel wells, under floor mats or seats, or in the glove compartment. However, for fleet tracking purposes, GPS trackers are almost always installed on the dashboard through an on board diagnostics (OBD) port.

Originally, mechanics used OBD ports to run diagnostic reports and interface with the vehicle’s on board computer. These same ports can also be used to give drivers real-time information on vehicle performance including fuel efficiency, temperature, airflow, speed, and more.

OBD tracking devices are now so common that even insurance companies are using them to provide discounts to safe drivers. However, not all OBD devices are the same, and fleet managers should carefully consider the additional features before they choose a GPS fleet system.

As for determining whether there is a GPS tracker on the car, the most direct way is of course to use a GPS model detector. Because the GPS tracker is just like a mobile phone, it needs a SIM card to receive and send information, so it has a certain frequency in the working state. At this time, we can hold the detector and search around the car slowly, and we can quickly find the position of the GPS tracker. Then if you are still not assured, we can buy a GPS shield directly to interfere with the signal. But at the same time, the mobile phone signal will be interfered, so it is better to rule it out completely.
