OBD Locator VS Strong magnetic GPS locator, which you prefer?

The strong magnetic GPS locator is a wireless GPS locator that uses a powerful magnet to mount the GPS locator.

OBD Locator: Similar to the cable locator, it only has an OBD port connection cable that can be directly connected to the car OBD interface.


So what is OBD?

OBD (On-Board Diagnostic System), also known as on-board diagnostic system, is also called on-board diagnostics, which is the input and output interface for automotive digital information. This makes the car no longer a purely mechanical device, but an information device that generates data at all times. And intelligence and information are inseparable, so the real car network or smart car will inevitably use the OBD interface.

From 2007 to the present, cars have generally owned OBD interfaces, and relevant departments will use OBD to monitor vehicles for high emissions, and now they are the key information exporters for automotive intelligence. The popular OBD interface breaks the information barrier of the car, turns the icy car indicator data into usable information, and even writes some information to influence the car’s movements.

OBD can collect the basic data and positioning data of the car, analyze the data to formulate a plan to maintain the car, or change the way the car insurance is quoted. The strong magnetic GPS locator seems to have only changed the way it is installed. It seems that the OBD locator is slightly better.


However, most car owners or car loan industries install GPS locators to protect the safety of vehicles. Now, illegal elements are rampant, they need anti-shielding and anti-detection functions, and OBD locators are connected to the OBD interface of the car. It is not easy to hide, it is easy to be detected and destroyed, and normal positioning function cannot be realized. The strong magnetic GPS locator itself has anti-shield and anti-detection, small size, easy to hide, and not easy to be found. The strong magnetic locator wins with one stroke.

Therefore, strong magnetic GPS positioning is still the trend of the current GPS positioning industry.
