The location of your car can be pinpointed and tracked through a GPS tracking system.
Some insurance companies have taken to reducing the car insurance rates for people who either buy a motor vehicle with a GPS tracking system pre-installed or who take the time to install a GPS tracking system after the purchase of a car.
