How does it work?
The GPS Car Tracker is VERY TINY covert device that tracks precise movements with a few meters using some of the 24 satellites that make up the Global Positioning System. This is the exact same system the US Military uses. To use the device all you do is place the unit inside the target vehicle (under the seat, in the glovebox, in the backglass, or even directly on the target like in a purse or a gym bag). The unit collects and stores data to be retrieved and reviewed later. Using the supplied software, you simply download the collected data (very simple) which can then be uploaded and viewed using Google Earth (satellite photos and maps).
As you can see in the screenshot on the left, Google Earth can provide detailed mapping and actual satellite photos. The satellite imaging used is so detailed you can even zoom in and see which parking lot was used by your target at their daily stop into McDonald's.
Using this GPS tracker is very simple and since the unit has a built in antenna and is powered by a rechargeable lithium ion battery, there are no wires to worry about.
The unit comes complete with AC Charger, car charger, USB cable, and installation CD. You have everything you need to get started right away.
The GPS Car Tracker is so simple to use ANYONE CAN DO IT!

Can I install the unit under the car or under the seat?
Yes. The unit can be obstructed by too much metal, but we have successfully tested the unit placed inside a glovebox, under the seat, inside the upholstery of a car, under the carpet of the floorboard, inside a speaker compartment, under the backglass, under the windshield, magnetically under the bumper, in the grill, in a brake light compartment, and virtually ANYWHERE you can imagine placing the unit. Because all cars are made differently, the unit may not work in all areas. Just test the unit before deciding where to place it permanently. You'll also want to consider accessibility ... if you're planning to retrieve the unit later, be sure you have access to do so. If you utilize the Bluetooth capability of the unit and hardwire the unit in, you can pretty much place the unit anywhere on the target vehicle and wirelessly retrieve the stored data just be getting near the vehicle with your Bluetooth enabled PDA, laptop, or smartphone.
Is the device waterproof?
The GPS Car Tracker is water-resistant. It's very well made and will resist most elements of the weather. We do not recommend soaking / submerging the device.
UPDATE!! : We now include materials to make the device fully waterproof as an add-on feature, free of charge.
How precise is the tracking? And will it work anywhere in the world?
The precision tracking of this unit is to within a few meters and YES, it will work anywhere in the world (anywhere there is a clear view to the sky). The unit provides exact longitude and latitude information within a few meters. Street numbers may be available in Google Earth for your particular location. Typically they are available for almost all well known public locations (like the local restaurants and department stores). Google Earth nearly ALWAYS shows the street name so it's very easy to determine what the street address is and mark it using the 'edit', 'properties' function in Google Earth. If you want to try Google Earth (and actually look at the amazing detail it provides) or to just see the amazing features, go to earth.google.com
Google Earth from Google is FREE.
Can I hardwire the unit into my target vehicle?
Yes. While we do not actively support this feature, you can hardwire the unit in for continuous use. This is especially cool when combined with the Bluetooth functionality, giving you the ability to retrieve the collected data whenever you need to simply by getting near the vehicle. To hardwire the unit to your target vehicle, we recommend purchasing a cigarette lighter outlet from your local auto parts store (a few dollars) and wiring the outlet to the fuse box for the cigarette lighter. Then simply connect the provided FREE car charger to your hardwired outlet. This will ensure the unit is properly powered and will provide continuous hardwired power.
