What is the difference between the gps tracker wireless and the battery GPS tracker connected to the car?

Hello everyone! My name is Nube and I work at iStartek Technology Co., Ltd. in Shenzhen, China. iStartek company is a professional manufacturer of 4G/3G/2G/NB/Lora GPS tracker and 4G wireless routers since 2015 in China. Today I will explain to you the benefits or inconveniences of mobile wireless GPS tracker and GPS trackers connected to the vehicle battery.

Generally, experienced customers know that, under normal circumstances, most GPS vehicle trackers need to be connected to an external power source, which can hide the device at a high level, and there is no need to worry about when the power of the device will run out. As long as the vehicle battery is still charged, it can always be tracked.

Of course, the wireless vehicle GPS tracker will definitely have a relatively large battery capacity, which can be used for a relatively long time.

For some goods that want to track vehicles, products, suitcases, safes, etc., this will be a good choice. It is also very convenient to install, just put it in a fixed place.

For example, the PT60 model of our iStartek has a relatively large battery capacity, a long standby time, can be recharged and used, and has a magnet, which is very convenient to install.

PT60 with 4G tracker 5000mah battery has:

  • 1-year standby with 5000mah inbuilt battery.

2) Support 4G LTE network


4) Tamper Alarm. Over speed alarm. Low battery alarm

5) Geo-fence

6) With inbuilt magnet for easy installation

iStartek is an ISO9000 approved factory, offering a 1~3 years quality warranty, with a 1% lower defective rate and rich government project experience, such as NBTC, LTFRB, AIS140, etc.

But the disadvantages of wireless GPS tracker are:

  1. It is easy to be disassembled.
  2. In addition to positioning, can not achieve control of the vehicle
  3. It must be disassembled if it needs to be charged, then the vehicle cannot be tracked during this period.

Most GPS trackers nowadays are multi-functional and can be connected to multiple accessories, enabling one machine to monitor and detect multiple directions of the vehicle.

For example, iStartek’s VT200 series, multi-function devices:

VT200-L 4G internal antenna GPS tracker has the below functions:

》Support 4G/3G/2G network


》3IN + 2OUT+1AD+1RS232+1- Wire
