GPS Tracking System as an Anti-Theft Device
by: Shawn Davis

What happens when your car is stolen? Likely it is gone for good. Even if it is eventually located, it is usually no longer in driving condition. But what if there was no need for a lengthy and uncertain search for your stolen car? With a GPS tracking system, you can exactly where your car is at all times. These systems are known as ďGlobal Positioning SystemsĒ and they can provide a visual representation of where your vehicle is at any given time. The important thing to do with the GPS tracking system is make sure you have it properly installed in your car. And once that is taken care of, you can find your car no matter where it goes.

A GPS tracking system in a car consists of very few components, and it is very easy to install. A GPS receiver is needed, as this is what connects the vehicle to the satellite (and then the satellite relays the information to your location). Additionally, it is necessary to have to antennae: a GPS antenna that attaches to the underside of the carís bumper cover, and a cellular antenna fastened to the carís frame. You can directly power these items by hooking into the carís power, or you can make use of a replaceable battery pack.

The only other things one needs for a GPS tracking system for the car is the proper software and some sort of device for receiving the information. This is most often a computer or laptop. It is even possible to receive the information on your carís whereabouts on a pocket PC. A map appears, and your vehicle is represented on the map in a readable format. It is also possible to get an address of the carís location. This makes tracking a stolen car rather easy, and makes it possible that the likelihood that you recover your car increases.

Many people are using a GPS tracking system to better protect their cars. Additionally, there are even companies that use this technology to offer services to their customers. OnStar is one of the main companies that make use of GPS tracking system technology on behalf of customers. But you can have that ability yourself if you choose the added vehicle protection of a GPS vehicle device.
