Road-tripping? We found a genius gadget that’ll track your car in case of theft. It’s the Spytec GL300 GPS Tracker and right now it’s just $40, or $30 off at Amazon—that’s a 43 percent savings!

This little guy comes in handy for tracking company vehicles or those used by your kids, parents or grandparents, so you’ll always know where they are in case of an emergency. Maybe you park on the street in a busy city or you’re using a trailer to move to another state. Or perhaps you just love your car so much you want to keep tabs on it at all times. That’s ok too.

Spytec has service plans starting at $20 per month, depending on your use, with 24/7 support.

Sleek and compact

At just 3 inches tall, the Spytec GL300 GPS Tracker is a compact tracking device with a super-long 14-day battery life. “This unit is so small I hid it in one of the seat pockets and it didn't even disturb the flat look of the leather pocket. Location is precise,” wrote a satisfied Amazon shopper. “I love that I can access it in real-time.”

Real-Time

Once the GPS tracker is stashed in a backpack or under a carseat, it can give you real-time stats of its movement, even in the most remote of places — thanks to Spytec’s 4G global satellite technology. Locations are viewable on the Spytec smartphone app; you’ll see a pin on Google Maps. You can even set up boundaries, so if the vehicle leaves a certain area you’ll be instantly alerted via text message or push notification.

“Have tried GPS trackers in the past. This product is far and above others. Just like a real-time GPS tracker you see in the movies,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “The little satellite icon spins and then you see the tracker’s location on a map showing the exact location. Shows updated location and then completed routes and stores them daily. I intend to use these trackers for vehicles at work. Fast, reliable and easy to use!”

Bottom line

At 43 percent off, this Spytec GL300 GPS Tracker is a no-brainer—it’s excellent for keeping tabs on a car, truck, RV or just about anything with wheels.

“Very accurate and simple to use,” shared another five-star shopper. “Placed it inside an enclosed U-Haul trailer while on vacation; worked wonderfully. I was afraid someone would steal the trailer when I would unhook it at hotels, so this tracker gave me peace of mind.”
