How to detect if someone place a GPS tracking My Car?

If you're like many people, you may be wondering how to recognize when someone placed a GPS tracking device in the vehicle. GPS tracking devices have gotten so small, they are usually the size of a pack of cigarettes, and some even as small as a quarter! It means that small that it can be difficult to detect, especially if you have a large vehicle.

The first thing you need to know that there are two different types of GPS tracking devices

GPS "loggers"

The GPS Logger is a passive device, which means that it does not actively transmit the GPS location. This means that he will make a GPS logger car will be to the car and then later re-used to be seen driving data, which is stored on the device. A popular example is the Sleuthgear iTrail GPS Logger, which is only 1.5 "x 1.5" high.

GPS "Tracker"

The GPS Tracker is an active device, which means that actively transmit the location to "live", usually a secure website where the person who placed it there to see the location and driving information via a web browser or special software. As you put it there, you do not need to download it, you can only view the information on the Internet. They will probably come back later, though, because the battery life of active trackers are generally less than 30 days.

Here, where we know the difference between the two types of tracking devices is important. The GPS Logger (like iTrail GPS) can only be detected by hand – that is, you have to physically locate. The reason for this is because, since no active signal (they just store the data on the device), a sensor error or a bug sweeper will not be able to pick up any transmission or signal. If you think that you might be a GPS logger to the vehicle in the first place to look for it under the vehicle. This is the most popular place to hide a GPS tracking device and is performed by a magnetic device inside the case, which safely holds the metal on the bottom of the vehicle. Other places to look in the glove box, center console, and trucks (including the spare tire).

If you think that you might have an active GPS Tracker car, a manual search is always the first step. Look under the vehicle, the glove compartment and in the trunk. These types of units are generally larger than the GPS loggers, because they need a large battery to actively transmit a signal. If you do not have time to do a manual search, you're in luck, because the active GPS Tracker is easily detected by GPS detector.

The GPS Detector is a handheld device that is usually battery powered which allows you to "sweep" of the vehicle (or anywhere else you want to find a GPS Tracker) and alerts you if it detects give tax GPS signal out of the place. There is a sensitivity adjustment knob that allows you to arm the exact location of the tracker, so you can remove the vehicle.

The GPS sensor device can detect cell phone signals, because mobile phones are commonly used in improvised GPS tracking devices, because the owners of mobile phones are also often used as a "visit" from the phone to find out where he is.

So if you want to find out if someone is placed GPS tracking device on the car for the first time to conduct a manual search and uses the GPS detector for quicker and easier to search.

The Eiger to the Matterhorn – an Alpine Adventure

If you want to do one long-distance hiking trail in the Alps next summer, it is a little-known routes that can be done in just over a week visiting while on vacation a few The most spectacular mountain scenery in Europe.

pedestrian path that the two best-known Swiss mountains, the Eiger and the Matterhorn is not yet an official long-distance trail, but when I hiked the route myself, I found a good, well-marked roads most of the way, and fewer, than what meets the established tracks like the Haute Route Chamonix Zermatt or the Tour du Mont Blanc.

the way of the Eiger to the Matterhorn is not, I assure you, does not involve the ascent or the two peaks – one of which is not known for easy increases – but begins and ends with walking trails associated with each mountain – the Eiger Trail above Grindelwald and connecting the Matterhorn Trail Zermatt to the Schwarzsee tarn at the foot of the Matterhorn. Although not a family walk, the road is suitable for hikers moderate ability – because there is no rough terrain or glacier crossings – and it goes a little visited areas in Switzerland and cross the high passes close to reaching the maximum height of 10 000 feet.

alternative route is suitable for both short some long alpine tours where time may be limited, or a good introduction to multi-day hiking in the Alps.

own idyllic alpine adventure began in Switzerland Jungfrau Region the path directly below the North Face of the Eiger. The Eiger Trail footpath high above the village of Grindelwald as a good start for a walk I can think of anywhere in Switzerland.

The next few days saw through the villages of Wengen and Murren – better known for skiing enthusiasts of winter activities – and so the snowy peaks of the Jungfrau region pass through the high country is much farther to the west Mürren. My route follows part of the Alpine Pass Route, which runs along the length of the Bernese Oberland Gsteig in the West, but I left it over the crest of long-distance road south of the Alps, the old crossing of the Gemmi Pass Kandersteg reached.

Le vineyards of the Rhone valley in Valais canton – Switzerland is divided into cantons or regions – and back in time than my road to the Turtmanntal that Switzerland is one of the least populated and most pristine areas. The idyllic upper reaches of this remote valley, the road joins another long-distance hiking down the road – the Haute Route – which also goes to Zermatt, at the foot of Mont Blanc de Chamonix in France.

above the heights above Turtmanntal and Augstbordpass to 2871 meters on the highest peak of the Matterhorn Eiger route, a return to civilization is in St. Niklaus valley of the mattertal. From now on our journey continues to the next mattertal valley to the south all the way to the snow and ice in the Pennine Alps – the highest mountains in Switzerland.

The 4000-meter Breithorn drive forward followed the sleepy villages of the valley road and next to the cool forests, rushing rivers Mattervispa. After an easy day, the climb begins again as the route leaves the valley to ascend through the woods, where the first view of the Matterhorn can be seen in the trees, road end in sight.

The Europaweg a spectacular two days of high-level routes in the lower mattertal Zermatt, and arguably the best route to Zermatt. The last part of our route joins this road just after the midpoint, and follows the road to the big Alp hamlet of Findeln before the last stretch through the woods back to Zermatt.

The most important part of the route actually do when reached Zermatt but since I started the Eiger Trail in Grindelwald, the Matterhorn Trail was a worthy end of walk. The Matterhorn Trail signposted Schwarzsee – Zermatt accessible by cable car and an easy downhill walk back to town with magnificent views all the way.

So – if you are heading to Switzerland this summer with hiking boots, here is a possible alternative to some of the better-known alpine tours – especially when time is short. You'll be missing out on anything in the Alps offer up – well only the crowd!
