GPS (Global Positioning System) is a worldwide navigation system that locates the position of a person, vehicle, or any other object. GPS tracker is most commonly used in vehicles as a reliable security solution. Car snatching or car theft is increasing in Pakistan and every year thousands of citizens lose their cars without a trace.
A few companies offer comprehensive car insurance to cover all the risks a car can have but its premium costs are very high and not everyone can afford it. Further, a claim usually involves a long list of formalities before getting the compensation.
In short, a GPS tracker is a simple and cost-effective solution to monitor the location of the car and increase the chances of recovery in case of theft.
In this article, we have listed down the best GPS trackers for cars and bikes in Pakistan which you can choose to keep your vehicle safe.
How Does A GPS Tracker Works?
Before proceeding, it is important to understand how a GPS tracker works.
A GPS tracker uses the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) to determine the location of a vehicle. For this purpose, a GPS tracker must be installed in the vehicle in a hidden place and the GNSS network communicates with a GPS tracker to track the location of a vehicle with 95% accuracy.
