What is a GPS tracker for classic cars?

GPS tracking systems for cars and classic cars are used to determine and transmit the exact meter location of the vehicle. For this purpose, the GPS device must be placed at the desired object, in our case in a vintage car. After a short installation and configuration, precise localization is possible. Unlike with normal cars, we recommend a rechargeable battery model for classic cars, as they can often have a longer service life. We have written a detailed blog post about this. You can read it here.

Permanent connection to the vehicle battery

Devices with a fixed connection are dependent on an external power source (e.g. car battery), but do not need to be charged.


GPS trackers that have an internal battery are independent of an external power source. They can be used flexibly and on the move.

Live localization

Live tracking enables GPS trackers to be located in real time. This means that you receive information about the current location at defined intervals.

Why is a GPS tracker recommended for classic cars?

The number of permanently stolen cars in Germany is just under 20,000. What is particularly annoying here is that the damage covered by insurance often does not match the individual value for the victim. Especially as insurance companies often only cover the current value of your vehicle.

However, with a GPS tracker for classic cars, you can act immediately if someone tampers with your vehicle. There is a whole range of alarm functions for this.

  • Vibration alarm
  • Geo fence alarm
  • Ignition alarm
  • Power interruption alarm
