Are GPS Car Trackers Legal?

plug and play GPS car tracker

In the United States, GPS car trackers are legal to install in a vehicle you own. So if you own a car (or your business owns a vehicle), you can track it. However, some states have additional laws about tracking. For example California requires employers tell employees if they are being tracked. GoTrack always recommends our customers tell anyone driving their vehicles they have installed GPS car trackers. It really is in the best interest of employees to be tracked. It increases security andĀ  leads to more efficient fleet management. Those same benefits, added safety and security, apply to family cars as well. We think our customers should explain these benefits to drivers.

Sometimes we are asked how to covertly track spouses, boyfriends and girlfriends (usually because of suspected cheating). That really is not what GoTrack GPS car trackers are designed to do and honestly, we really aren’t interested in that kind of business. GoTrack vehicle trackers are for helping businesses and families keep their drivers and vehicles safe, secure and running efficiently.
