Optimizing Asset Monitoring: Where to Place a GPS Tracker on Your Car

Protecting high-value assets, especially classic cars, luxury automobiles, and other valuable vehicles, is a must for all owners. These are your prized possessions, and you want to know they’re properly cared for. GPS trackers have become an essential tool in asset monitoring, providing owners with real-time data and peace of mind. However, not all of them are created equal, and finding the best place to position a GPS tracker for optimal security and monitoring can be tricky.

ASSURIoT’s GPS tracker offers unparalleled flexibility in positioning while assuring your prized vehicle remains protected without compromising security. It stands out from other options thanks to its small size, shape, and industry-leading battery life of up to four years.

 

Understanding GPS Technology in Asset Tracking


GPS, short for Global Positioning System, operates by transmitting signals to and from satellites, which allows the integrated technology to pinpoint its location accurately. This information is then sent to asset tracking software, enabling owners to view location history, receive real-time alerts, and set up geofencing capabilities. “Geofencing” refers to the ability to draw a “virtual fence” around the storage location of an asset and be alerted if the asset should leave the “fence” around the object’s location. For collectors and owners of luxury cars, the assurance that comes with GPS tracking provides significant security and peace of mind.

ASSURIoT utilizes the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), which enables higher accuracy and reliability in location determination by tapping into a broad network of satellite constellations, including the GPS satellite network, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou. These satellites orbit the Earth and send continuous radio signals containing data about their position and the current time. By employing a GNSS receiver module, our devices can capture these signals from any available satellite constellation within range — not just GPS — ensuring broader global coverage. The receiver calculates its distance from each satellite based on the time delay of these signals. By processing data from at least four different satellites, the receiver can pinpoint its exact location with enhanced precision.

This capacity to connect with multiple satellite systems allows GNSS to offer significant improvements in accuracy, redundancy, and availability of positioning data, providing dependable location-tracking capabilities under various global conditions.

ASSURIoT’s innovative asset monitoring and tracking device adds additional layers of industry-leading technology to its GPS functionality, providing further monitoring and location assurance. This includes cellular, wifi and Bluetooth communications capabilities, along with industry-leading battery life, secure asset documentation, and intuitive mobile interfaces. It’s the ultimate choice for individuals seeking to assure the security of their high-value assets.

 

Understanding the Need: Car Theft Trends and GPS Tracking Benefits


Car theft is at epidemic levels, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau. Luxury vehicles and vintage cars are particularly targeted due to their high value and desirability. GPS tracking is a deterrent to thieves while providing owners with actionable data in the event of a theft.


ASSURIoT’s geofencing capabilities, real-time alerts, and global connectivity assure immediate action can be taken if a vehicle is moved without authorization. By leveraging this state-of-the-art technology, individuals with beloved vehicles and prized collections can protect their valuable automobiles with unparalleled security, removing the uncertainty around the best way to monitor luxury assets.

 

Best Locations for GPS Trackers on Your Vehicle


ASSURIoT GPS trackers are unique due to their small size and lightweight compared to other trackers on the market. They don’t require cutting the wiring of the vehicle to install and can be easily mounted with the included non-marring, two-sided tape, velcro, and magnet mounting options. Due to their small size, they don’t require mounting screws or other invasive mounting options. Unlike ASSURIoT, other options also have limited battery life, requiring frequent recharging or replacement, which can compromise long-term monitoring, especially for offsite collections or vehicles in storage facilities.

Here are some of the best places to install GPS trackers:
 

    • Under the Dashboard: Concealed behind the dashboard, it remains out of sight while providing an excellent vantage point for monitoring.
    • In the Trunk: This out-of-sight option provides secure placement without compromising effectiveness.
    • Within the Engine Bay: For high-security tracking, placing the GPS tracker in the engine bay makes it difficult for thieves to find.
    • Under the Seats or Carpet: Hidden yet accessible, this location provides easy access for maintenance while remaining undetectable.
    • In Wheel Wells or Rear Bumpers: These innovative and difficult-to-find placements provide additional security while deterring detection.

 

Who Can Benefit from GPS Tracking in Their Car?


Individual owners, insurance companies, leasing agents, and financial institutions can all benefit from GPS tracking on vehicles. By providing additional security measures for high-value vehicles, they can reduce risks and better protect their investments.

Transportation, storage, and auction companies also find GPS tracking invaluable as a risk reduction strategy. With ASSURIoT’s intuitive mobile interface, organizations can monitor the movement and status of high-value assets seamlessly, assuring our customers’ peace of mind with the use of top-tier asset tracking software.
