GPS trackers: How Effective; How Legal?
Like much of our technology, GPS devices used to track vehicles have come a long way in the past five years. They have gotten more accurate, smaller (more easily concealed) and their effective battery life has tripled. The professional-grade units that we lease to our clients can be set-up to supply location updates as frequently as every 10 seconds and can be queried (pinged) by the client 24/7 from any Smartphone, computer or tablet. They can pinpoint the whereabouts of the target vehicle to within 100 feet or less. In most states, to be used legally, the client’s name must appear on the vehicle’s registration.
