When the subject of car trackers is mentioned, most individuals think of fleet tracking devices that are used to monitor movements of taxi cabs, trucks and local authority vehicle fleets.
These GPS car trackers are hard-wired units that are tucked away behind the dash and of course they have the benefit of drawing power from the vehicle battery. However, sometimes a more flexible vehicle tracking solution is required where several vehicles need to be monitored accurately at different times or where it is difficult to get a hard-wired GPS device put in place because of alerting attention to the user or users of the vehicle(s) in question. This is where the micro car tracker comes into its own.
A covert car tracker used to be the preserve of Police services and security services. In years gone by they used to consist of a radio frequency transmitting beacon that was tied to the underneath of a vehicle and could only be tracked at relatively close range using a radio frequency receiver designed for the purpose. When GPS tracking came about, the technology was too weak to enable a device to be placed under a vehicle because the Antenna needed line of sight to update its current location. From 2006 onwards GPS advances meant that for the first time GPS tracking devices for cars could be placed on the underside of a vehicle.
The GPS trackers of 2006 were bulky and unsophisticated with very high power draw resulting in very short battery life. The latest generation of vehicle trackers are a world away from even those available in 2006. These days the GPS vehicle trackers are compact and packed with sophisticated power saving technology ensuring that they are up to the expectations of today discerning purchaser
