I figured somebody on here has already done the research so hoping you can give me some input here.

Has anybody found a reliable battery powered GPS tracker to put in race trailers, race cars, etc in the event it gets stolen? And are there any available that do not have a monthly fee? And are the ones without monthly fees reliable?

Americaloc gps tracker
this one has a monthly subscription service for $25/mo

Spy Tec tracker
This one also has a monthly fee of $25

Trailer tracker
no monthly fee on this one. Has anybody used it?

thanks so much!

Assuming this is racing related and not for vehicle asset tracking around town.

The low cost trackers rely on cell phone coverage. That coverage on race day is either oversaturated or you race in areas sin coverage.
Also look for frequency of updates. The ones used by race providers update all day long every 30sec-3mins or so and communicate directly with a satellite above hence work anywhere on surface earth.

No, this would be for asset tracking and recovery in case of theft.

Spot trace. Works great. Sat based so it doesn’t depend on cell coverage.
