GPS Tracking Devices

What is it?


The Smith Investigation Agency can supply highly accurate and GPS tracking devices on a rental or for-sale basis. These powerful and discreet little devices are useful for identifying routing patterns of specific vehicles, enabling for you to definitively ascertain the activities of a specific individual or group. We are one of few agencies in the area that provide such sophisticated technology, which is intended only for legal use.

Are you concerned for a loved one’s safety behind the wheel due to an addiction? Or, perhaps you live in a rough neighbourhood and want to keep an eye on your vehicle — a valuable and necessary tool — at all costs? Regardless, our GPS tracking devices can legally and efficiently lend a hand in regards to protecting yourself and others.


What is a GPS Tracking Device?


GPS trackers are small and computerized devices that can be affixed to a vehicle. They utilize real-time location tracking technology to efficiently collect information about where a specific vehicle goes. These are useful for individuals seeking to install a more affordable means of surveillance to protect themselves, others, and their property. Legal examples include businesses installing them to monitor employee usage of company vehicles, as well as new car owners seeking to protect their vehicle from theft in a less-than-desirable area. With consent, they are also great and affordable alternatives to performing activity checks on individuals such as ex-spouses with shared child custody.

Advantages of GPS Tracking


A great deal of valuable information can be obtained from our GPS tracking devices, including a vehicle’s speeds, specific location, idling time, braking, and manoeuvring when in operation. This can help to protect against inebriated vehicle operation, abduction, and thefts as well as mishandling and speeding.

If private investigation services are not in your budget at this time, renting or buying a GPS tracking device can get you the information you need. Likewise, if you suspect a spouse, teenager, or employee of untoward activity, renting or buying a GPS tracking device can be a good precursor to hiring a private investigator.

The Smith Investigation Agency supplies GPS tracking devices for rental or purchase to corporate and private clients throughout the province of Ontario, including Toronto, Ottawa, Sudbury, Niagara, Barrie, and more.

The Smith Investigation Agency is proud to offer such reliable and highly accurate devices for legal use (always with vehicle owner consent), and we encourage you to reach out to us today to secure a rental or purchase one to help ease your worries.
