The question you have to ask is this... is your car worth nicking?
None of mine are, so I don't need a tracker.
Suppose the car was worth nicking, or for example you just wanted to
remember where you left it. If you wanted to make a permanent wired
install connected with the power, besides the obvious place of putting it
right underneath the dash (avoiding any airbags) where else do you think
would be a good location with access to power or where you can use a
splitter on existing connector to draw power while keeping the device
undetected? And of course assuming no jammer was being used too?
I was thinking about in one of the door pockets behind a speaker but not
sure what power wires there if any and if I could use some sort of
splitter? SOmetime there may be small door lights I could use and obtain
power from? The other location I was thinking would be front or rear
bumper (if made of plastic) but it would be more likely to be discovered
there. Other thoughts would be under carpers in the boot or rear seats, or
maybe secured behind a door mirror? I know there would be power there and
if secure in place well it could be a good place. Even better if it's
surrounded by plastic. If no plastic then you could have it at an angle? I
am thinking dash may be the best place but not easiest to put in so I am
thinking for a permanent install where would be easy to install and still
a good place that is completely hidden.
Having worked on afew cars with trackers fitted, I can assure you that
behind the dash or boot or bumpers is NOT where they are fitted. I'm also
not going to divulge where they tend to be fitted on an open forum either.
They only require a very small and switched power supply as they contain
their own battery and charging equipment.
