What Finance Companies Should Look for in a Wireless GPS Tracker

June 2, 2021

In the past, the cost and time of hardwired GPS devices might have prevented you or the dealerships you work with from using an asset-management system. But thanks to battery-powered GPS trackers, cost and time are no longer an issue for efficient vehicle tracking and vehicle recovery. Here’s what Finance Companies and Credit Unions should look for in wireless GPS tracker.


A battery-powered GPS tracker is easy to install in seconds. Tuck it under a seat; inside the padding; or install it discreetly in the trunk, glove box or console. That’s it. No need to remove interior panels or connect wires. No need to open up the dashboard. Just quick and easy installation that makes implementing a vehicle-tracking system simple.


The right battery can make or break a battery-powered GPS tracker. You need a battery that’s reliable and long-lasting. You also need a solution with multiple modes that can go from endurance daily tracking to maximum recovery mode. Such flexibility prolongs the device’s battery life. Look for an advanced lithium battery because it has a much higher energy density and lower discharge rate than other types of batteries. Lithium batteries can last years before needing replacement.

Custom ordering portal

An easy-to-install, wireless GPS tracking system should also come with its own custom-ordering portal. This turn-key solution reduces logistics for Finance Companies and makes it simple for dealerships to comply with conditions of loans. The dealer orders the number of battery-powered GPS devices needed from the GPS device portal and the devices are shipped directly to the dealer. The dealer can easily install, activate and test each device all within minutes for maximum scalability and efficiency.
