about anyone to track anyone else. In addition
almost all new cell phones have GPS tracking
capabilities built in to them. Some even have the
ability to transmit location information even with
the battery removed. All of which make you
wonder what happened to personal privacy. The
there are legal restrictions as to how and when
you can use the new tracking technology
however detecting
GPS tracking units can
sometimes be difficult.

There are basically two types of
GPS tracking
available to the public. The simplest is
called a passive or logger tracking device. This
device is also the most difficult to detect and
defend against. These
GPS tracking units can be
as small as a matchbook and can be hidden just
about anywhere. They are attached to a vehicle or
individual and after a specific amount of time they
must be retrieved. After retrieval the device is
usually attached to a personal computer and the
information is downloaded into a data base that is
provided by the
GPS tracking units manufacture.

Probably the best defense against passive/logger
GPS tracking units comes in the form of a GPS
blocker. These small units normally plug into
your automobiles cigarette lighter port and
provide protection for about 30 feet in any
direction. Small handheld units are also available
that run on batteries that also provide short range
blocking. These units can range in price from
$200 to $850.

The second type of
GPS auto tracker or personal
GPS tracking units are called real time tracking
devices. These units do just as the name implies,
provide current real time location information on
the individual or vehicle that is being tracked.
This accomplished through the use of cell phone
technology. Recent technology improvements
have greatly reduced the size and reliability of
GPS tracking units. You can purchase a
battery operated unit the size of a small cell
phone that will provide tracking information for
up to a week before the battery requires charging.
More commonly these
GPS tracking units are
attached to a vehicle and use the vehicles power
supply to provide power to the tracking unit.

Real time tracking devices generally require the
user to contract with a GPS tracking service
company. These companies frequently provide
GPS tracking units and the software
necessary to track the device on your personal
computer. Depending on the contract the
information is uploaded to you at time specific
intervals. The most common information uploads
range from 5 to 10 minutes.

Defending against this type of
GPS tracking units
is relatively easy with a combination cell
phone/GPS blocking device. These units range in
either a cell phone or a GPS blocking device may
accomplish the same affect. In addition if you feel
that you are being tracked illegally you can
contact your local law enforcement agency and
let them do a scan of the vehicle or personal
effects in question. Many small law enforcement
agencies do not have this capability and in that
case you have the option to purchase a scanning
unit and do the scan yourself.

A word to the wise if you are involved in a
criminal enterprise. Much of what we have
outlined here will not prevent US government
agencies from tracking you and your vehicles.

In most cases it is illegal to track just about
anyone without their permission. However given
the fact that is so hard to detect many tracking
devices it is likely that illegal
GPS auto tracker
and personal
GPS tracking units technology will
continue to be used.
