Which Tracker is best for your Vehicle

The type of tracker you require for your vehicle depends on two factors, one a physical one the other based on your intended use for the tracker.

.

Every car or truck manufactured after 1996 is installed with an OBD port which is normally located somewhere in the foot well under the steering column. This port is mainly used by the workshops to diagnose any faults with the vehicle and a mechanic can plug the car into a diagnostics machine and a report is produced.

.

In the majority of cases the location of this port is in a position whereby a small tracker can be plugged into it without it interfering at all with the operating of the vehicle. However in a few minor instances the location of this port has been found to be in a difficult position whereby it is either knocked every time the car is entered or interferes with the foot pedals. Accordingly check the location of your OBD port and if it appears to be in such a position then order the ' under hood ' tracker.

.

The OBD tracker is in a very visual location and a driver is very aware that the vehicle they are driving is being monitored. In some instances such as vehicle hire or staff monitoring it is preferred that the driver is not made so aware of the fact that the vehicle is being tracked and in these instances again we recommend the ' under hood' tracker which is in a far less obvious location.
