Vehicle Tracking Using Private Investigator

Updated: Nov 25, 2021



You’ve probably seen vehicle trackers in the bond films and action movies, or read about them in your favourite novels, but what are they really and how do we use them in the real world?


Lets find out…




Vehicle trackers are one of the most useful tools in the arsenal of a private investigator. They can be used as a stand-alone piece of equipment to track an asset over time, or as an extra aid when operatives are conducting mobile surveillance.


How do vehicle trackers work?


A vehicle tracker is a small, covert, reliable device, small enough to fit into the palm of your hand. They use magnets which allow them to be fitted to any magnetic part of a vehicle. They relay information to the user who will be able to see: the location of the vehicle, historic journey’s, travel speeds, and much more.


The vehicle trackers that we deploy use GPS and a data sim. This makes them extremely accurate and trustworthy. This information is then passed onto end user, who can access the information from anywhere in the world.


How do you fit them without getting noticed?


9 times out of 10 our private investigators will fit vehicle trackers during the night/early morning. The cover of darkness is a private investigators friend. Our investigators research the area they will be going into, usually getting a good feel for the area by using Google Maps. They will plan their insertion route and exit route before visiting the site they will be operating on. When they have arrived, they will do further research to ensure that they will not be compromised by the subject or neighbours nearby. When all the necessary checks are complete the operatives will move in, fit the tracker and disappear as if they were never there!


How do I see what the tracker is showing?


Each of our vehicle trackers have their own unique ID number and password. These are used to login to our preferred tracker app, Trackserver. This tracking panel is absolutely fantastic. It allows the user to instantly see the current location of the device. It’s very easy to navigate and intuitive to use. It allows you to see the vehicle history on a day-to-day basis, the duration of stops, travel speeds and much, much more. Perfect, especially for catching cheating partners and employees.


All in all trackers are a fantastic tool and can provide tons of evidence without operatives having to be unnecessarily intrusive.
