Methods of Installing GPS


In any GPS Tracking installation, one of the most important part is it’s installation. It can either be installed by a professional or may be self installed, both of which has it’s own pros & cons.

Typically, all GPS providers would speak in favor of a Professional installation however, depending upon your requirement a self installation may be right way ahead.

In case of Professional installations:

Expertise in GPS installation is a given. That ensures that the installation is done in the right manner. Installations vary not only by the device model but also on the vehicle type, model & make year. All devices need to be connected correctly, & requires a level of knowledge of the vehicle it is being installed in. Based on the expertise of the in-house or the professional installation, its usually the professional installation which is better.

As it’s the routine work of the professional, it gets done sooner than expected & is done correctly However, point to note is that it requires a basic number of installations before it becomes viable for the professional to do the job as well as all professionals work as per their own schedules & priorities.

As for all future service issues, even minor ones requires that the one who installed be present to resolve the issue, the professional takes time to schedule service visits.

Whereas in case of Self Installations, if the technician understands what he needs to do, he overcomes a lot of the points in case of the professionals. Your own technician although may take some more time but future minor services can be handled by them without the need to schedule a full service call from the professional. You control when & where of the installation. As it’s an in house job, the cost reduces for each installation so does the schedule.

However, self installs often make you lose your warranty if not done correctly. It also increases the chances of in house tampering with the devices.
