Trackers, like the cars they protect, are incredible pieces of equipment packed with technology. Unlike the vehicles themselves, the trackers pack a lot of advanced tech into a small footprint.
One piece of tech that often gets overlooked amongst all the other ‘bangs and whistles that come with trackers is GPS. The Global Positioning System is the cornerstone of almost all tracking systems. With that in mind, we wanted to take a look at the 3 best GPS trackers currently available.
ScorpionTrack S5 VTS
No list of the best GPS trackers would be complete without including the S5 VTS from ScorpionTrack. It is simply one of the best GPS systems you can buy.
Being an S5 tracker, Thatcham’s highest rating for car security, you can be assured that you’re getting a device that actively protects your vehicle when you’re not around. In addition to Thatcham’s seal of approval, this tracker is also designed and manufactured in the UK to the Police’s Preferred Specification. That is further enhanced with the inclusion of Automatic Driver Recognition tags. These pocket-sized devices act like a failsafe for the car. If they’re not in the proximity of the car and the car is moved, alerts are raised with the 24/7 control room and to the app on your phone.
Not only does the S5 VTS utilise the GPS network, it also incorporates GLONASS, Galileo and GSM technology. Having these additional tracking technologies within it means that its location can be more precisely tracked if stolen, whether it’s stored underground or locked in a shipping container. There’s nowhere for it hide.
Meta Trak S5 VTS
Another fantastic S5 system that easily makes the best GPS tracker list is the S5 VTS, but this time the model from Meta Trak. Like the ScorpionTrack we mentioned above, it also includes Driver ID tags. The similarities don’t stop there.
You get a dedicated smartphone app to monitor your journey history, motion alerts, not to mention low-battery and tamper alerts all at the tip of your fingers. Even if you change your vehicle, the tracker is easily transferable to another car. It’s worth mentioning that if you have a Škoda, SEAT or Volkswagen, then this device is approved by those car manufacturing giants, so you know you’re in safe hands.
SmarTrack Protector Pro Global
SmarTrack Protector Pro Global from SmarTrack not only makes the list of the best GPS trackers, but also the list of our best-selling systems and most cost-effective. This triple threat utilises the latest in GPS tracking technology making it surprisingly small and covert, but don’t let its size fool you, it’s packed with features.
The case itself is IP67-rated as waterproof, but its real power comes from the dedicated smartphone app that comes with it. You get alerts for everything from low battery, motion and battery disconnection. It’s internal battery means that even if the car’s battery is disconnected or removed, it can still send its location.

You can be assured of professional installation coupled with fantastic customer service thanks to our team of fully-trained and qualified engineers. GPS or not, there’s no getting away from that.
