When you’re looking to protect your asset and have the best chance of recovery if stolen, there are three key things you should look for in a tracker.
- Long lasting battery – thieves will generally disconnect the vehicle battery to try to disable any tracker that is installed. If you have a hardwired tracker, ensure it has a high capacity backup battery to give you a chance of locating the vehicle if stolen
- Hide anywhere – you want to make the thieves hunt for the tracker as difficult as possible. Choose a tracker that has a high IP rating and install it somewhere un-expected, such as under the vehicle, behind the bumper or behind a light.
- Immune to scanners – thieves often scan a vehicle they have stolen within a mile or so of where it was taken from to try to locate a tracker. Ideally pick a tracker with long gaps between updates – although you won’t see in realtime where the vehicle is, the thieves won’t be able to sniff out your tracker.
