Real-time GPS trackers require 3 main things. Some type of service/app/server, some type of way to communicate (usually cellular) and lots of power. Replacing or recharging batteries is a hassle though. Many things you might want to track have their own power in which you can tap into and charge up a GPS tracker automatically. Most cars built after 1996 have an OBD port in which a device like the Carlock can be plugged into to drawn power without a need to cut and solder wires together. It's quick and easy to install. Let's check it out.
PROs - Has a built-in battery so it can continue to track even when the car is off, carlock tag accessory removes the need for a manual, timed, or schedule enabling and disabling the alarm, service fees are reasonable,
CONs - bulky (but an extension wire can move the bulk to a better location), Lots of false alerts without the use of Carlock tag, Delayed alerts,
