Where Can I Put My Vehicle Tracking Device?

GPS_placement2TSD receives hundreds of phone calls every week from different businesses, police agencies and people regarding our inventory of GPS tracking devices. Although most people feel that their question may be unique, most of the time the questions we receive are very similar in nature. One of the questions that our GPS experts at TSD frequently receive is whether or not our most popular monitoring system, the GPS Tracking Key Pro, will operate smoothly and effectively in the trunk of a vehicle. TSD researches and tests many different GPS monitoring solutions on the market in a quest to find the best devices the industry has to offer, and the current inventory of GPS trackers can easily outperform the competition. However, when it comes to placement location of a car tracker, users may need to test the placement selection, depending on make and model of vehicle.

GPS Tracking System Effectiveness

The current line of GPS trackers available on the TSD website have superior antenna reception, and two systems were engineered with exterior magnetic mounts to provide outside placement. GPS vehicle management solutions often work most effectively when they have a direct line of sight to the sky, but the sophisticated monitoring devices offered at TSD are much more advanced than the GPS navigation devices most people are familiar with. TSD tracking systems can also function with a high level of accuracy near the front bumper, rear bumper, in the glove box, under the front/passenger seats or inside a speaker.

What About The Freaking Trunk!

Okay, okay! We have been dodging the question whether or not a vehicle tracking unit will work in a trunk for about two paragraphs now, but that is only because the answer is not exactly that simple. Let us first say that the trunk is not a recommended placement location, but that is only because the make and model of different vehicles will change the effectiveness of GPS monitoring devices. Many of our customers have reported that they have been very successful using their car tracking units in the trunk of a vehicle, but because the trunk in some vehicles will interfere with GPS signals, we here at TSD cannot state with confidence that a GPS tracker will work in the trunk of a vehicle.

At the end of the day the best thing to do is place a GPS monitoring system in a location and give it a trial run if possible.
