Aug 25, 2007

Most insurance companies are now offering various discounts towards vehicles that are equipped with a GPS tracker.

Most private investigators, as well as law-enforcement authorities and agencies, are utilizing GPS tracker technology for the purposes of surveillance in keeping track of individuals from a distance.
