How to Block GPS Tracking

by Michael Jones

A GPS tracker is a device used to track the location of a vehicle. There are two types of trackers available to the public: a logger tracking system and a real-time tracking system. A logger tracking system remembers all the locations a vehicle has been and stores them on a hard drive. The tracker then must be connected to a computer to retrieve the information. A real-time tracker sends signals to a GPS receiving system every 5 to 10 minutes. This will track a vehicle's real-time movements. If you believe you are being tracked, you can buy a product to block the signal.

Step 1

Shop around and find a GPS blocker. The blocker can cost anywhere from $50 to $1,000. It will stop most GPS tracking devices from sending signals to a GPS receiver. The more expensive ones will block signals up to hundreds of feet away, while the cheaper ones will block signals only up to a few meters.

Step 2

Plug the GPS blocker into your car's cigarette lighter. Plugging it in will activate the blocker, and you will essentially be invisible to any GPS monitoring systems.

Step 3

Deactivate your GPS blocker when you don't need to use it. Do this by simply unplugging it.
