Unless it is one of those pay at dealer lots or the financial institution wants one installed, why would a dealer install a tracking device?

I would say were we used to install them with a court order; however, we needed extremely easy and fast access (usually) a dealer could install a tracker almost any place inside or outside the vehicle. They have the access and time. But again, I ask why?

There are places that can search for an active device; however, if a passive device that only signals when moving, it is a lot harder. Just find a place that sells GPS trackers, and they usually have a device to locate. They may want proof you own the vehicle so a clear title should suffice. Then again, they may not do a search in case it was installed by LE with a court order.

Not sure where the OP lives; however, in the USA, unless you own the vehicle or if the person (company) installing has a legal reason such as a lien on the vehicle it is illegal. Some companies place trackers on their vehicles and track their employees. legal since the company actually owns the vehicle In some cases, an entity that owns the vehicle will place trackers for protection of the employees using the vehicles.

If you have paid for the vehicle and it is your with no liens and you are over 18 and the tracker is not installed by your parents....if you run across a tracker, get yourself an attorney and make some money.

I have paid case for all my vehicles for the past thirty years, if I ever came across a tracker, my first call would be a particular Federal Agency and if it was a civil matter (dealer, etc.) then my second call would be an attorney.

But there are some states that have their own laws in regarding trackers and as for other countries. I have no idea.
