OBD GPS TRACKERS for cars / kids / security

Most cars after the year 1994 have an OBD port. The obd port looks like the picture below

This port is located somewhere under your drivers dash, lay on the floor and look up. In some cars, it may be behind a panel, but almost all cars will have this port. From this port, information such as fuel, mileage, and other information comes out via data. Most importantly, it has power and ground. So from this port, you can PLUG IN A SELF CONTAINED device and have GPS in less than FIVE SECONDS.

Do you have a new teen driver in your family, do you want to track your car for security or other reasons? Most people will not know to check the OBD port for a device, you after you plug an OBD GPS tracker in your car, no one will usually know but you!

Track where your kids are, when they drive and if they are going too fast. See where your wife is and if she is stuck in traffic. If your car gets stolen, call the police with the exact location.

Below are some devices we recommend after going through a few products.

We recommend the VYNCS because it includes the DEVICE –AND– the monthly subscription in the price. No extra fees for one year! And renewal is the same price as of this writing. All devices have 3G cell service, so there will be NO FREE GPS tracking device on the market. Be advised of that.

See the VYNCS here for the device and INCLUDED service

The motosafety GPS OBD tracker lets you know when your car needs service. It also has driving reports and much more

An more upgraded unit is the MASTRACK which has a BATTERY BACKUP!

Contains an internal backup battery that automatically charges while connected to the vehicle. Track this device even if it is unplugged
Unlimited email and text message alerts for tampering, speeding, geofence, etc.
Real-time GPS updates up to every 1 minute. Nationwide coverage (USA & Canada). Required monthly subscription as low as $10.99
No installation. Simply plugs into OBD-II port available on every vehicle manufactured since 1996. 1 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty
Use any internet enabled device. No software required. Android and iOS app available

If you want an unit which you can hide away, check out the SCOUT. This will have a built in battery for 24 hours, anything longer and it will need to be recharged or connected to a wire for charging.

This is a low cost investment, and your insurance company may offer you a discount (ask them!)

Remote start season coming

Remote start season is coming, and you should start preparing for the installation now before it ices up and gets too cold.
Here are some basic remote starts which will get the job done. Remote start will heat up your car before you get into it. Remote starts will melt the ice off your windows, no more scraping the ice!

The avital 4103 is a good remote start with a lot of feature, which will work in almost every car. It is compact and very easy to install and comes with instructions.

An upgrade to this unit is a 2 way remote start with security and paging. A little fancier and offers page back when the car is started. It also has a car alarm package with siren and flashing lights

A basic unit from Compustar is the CS800 with keyless entry. Compact and small, this unit will be a good pair for any car.

You will need a bypass kit to go with either of these, to work through data – to bypass the immobilizer in your vehicle

See the EVOALL for an universal immobilizer bypass module

Compustar Remote Starts

You want to pick a company that produces reliable products when you pick you remote start. Something that will work reliably over time, and you won’t have to troubleshoot or even have to rip it out and do the entire installation over. A brand we recommend is Compustar. Below are some products.

Remember that most modern cars required a Data Interface and an Immobilizer bypass module

In Car DVR Camera Systems

DVR in car camera recorders:

By now, you have probably seen some pretty crazy accidents on youtube, filmed on in car DVRs. Without the in car DVR systems, it would have been your word against the other driver’s word on what really happened. For drivers who commute a lot, taxi cab or uber drivers, or people driving around areas with a lot of pedestrians – and in car dvr system is an almost required item to cover your liability.

Some main things you need to pay attention to is if an unit will record by itself, when it senses motion, how does it record, does it have a screen so you can review footage.

It is also important to note if the storage is internal or it will require an sd card (at an extra expense). You also need to take note of recording times, and how much you drive to pick an unit.


Not all units are created equal, more expensive units will have a better sensor , so it will pick up objects in more detail and may work better at nighttime.

another important thing is if the unit will record in 720p, 1080p or in standard definition.

Sometimes, you want multiple cameras to record all around a vehicle
