Are car trackers reliable?
So, is GPS accurate? The answer is yes – but just how accurate is it? Well, the vast majority of vehicle trackers can pinpoint the location of a car or van to a three-metre radius. That's impressive enough, though some systems are even more accurate and can track a vehicle to within a one-metre radius.
