1 Vehicle voltage types
Mainly, vehicle has 2 voltage working types: 12V and 24V. Although in market GPS tracker claims to work from 9V to 36V it is always wise to choose the most suitable tracker for your vehicle. According to our experiences, we suggest mini GPS tracker for cars or motorbikes and other trackers for trucks.
2 Good installation places

3 Stable voltage supply
It is known to all that when vehicle engine starts to run there will be power surge, which is harmful to GPS tracker or any other car electronics. The power surge will not kill GPS tracker at one time, but it will kill utmost after many times. It is a fact that vehicle’s battery acts like a voltage stabilizer which decrease the power surge effect to electrical devices. This is why we always suggest connect GPS tracker power lines to car battery. However, if there is problem to connect to car battery directly, we suggest connect a car converter/ voltage or current stabilizer between GPS tracker and vehicle. Below is a picture of this kind of device.

Correct installation at suitable places will ensure your GPS tracker excellent performance and long time endurance. Protect GPS Tracker.
