GPS locator can be divided into many types, and the most common types of vehicle gps are OBD interface, wiring type, and magnetic free installation type.
1. OBD interface car locator:
The biggest feature of the OBD interface car locator is the easy installation and plugging directly into the OBD interface. He also has the extra function of reading some basic parameters of the car, such as fuel consumption and mileage. However, its safety factor is low. It can be easily removed without any technology. It is not suitable for mortgage rental vehicles and is suitable for private car management.
Different car models have different requirements for the OBD locator, and it is necessary to determine in advance whether they are vehicles or locators that meet the requirements.
2. Wiring type vehicle GPS:
This kind of equipment uses a power cord to connect the car battery power. It does not carry a large-capacity battery. Once it is removed or the battery is powered off, it will lose its ability to locate in a short time (0.5-8 hours). However, traditional wired GPS devices with real-time GPS vehicle tracking system can record vehicle travel information, historical travel trajectories, real-time alarm status, parking information, etc. which is very important for customers. After the vehicle GPS is connected to the ACC line, it is very convenient to manage the fleet.
This type of GPS can also be used as a motor vehicle GPS tracking device on a motorcycle or electric bike.
The wiring type car positioner also has its drawbacks. Compared with the OBD interface type car positioner, its installation complexity has improved several levels.
3. Portable car locator:
The most obvious thing about this type of positioner is that it is simple and portable. It carries a large-capacity battery and can be placed anywhere in the car. Don’t worry about the installation problem. At the same time, we also have a portable car positioner that can support three years of long standby. Generally used in conjunction with wiring type car locators, commonly used in the car loan, leasing industry.
This kind of locator can also be used as a personal vehicle GPS tracker because it does not need to be connected and is easy to carry. For personal terminal buyers who have no installation experience, this type of product can save installation effort and time.
The disadvantage is that you need to check the battery regularly for power, and when the device is turned on for real-time positioning, the power consumption is faster.
