I mean this style that goes under cars.
The way it works is, it logs its location via GPS, every <insert time interval here> and stores that data on a hard drive.
After you retrieve the device and plug the hard drive in the computer you get the list of all locations logged.
The entire device is in a plastic box, that connects to the undersize of a car via strong magnet.
Can you make one yourself?

Yes, a Raspberry Pi Zero with a GPS hat on it. Depending on the hat, you may have to get direct sight to the sky, and you'll have to provide a power source

>> No.1593424


Making a gps tracker when you have line of sight to the sky is easy. Im wondering about the kind that doesnt need that.

>> No.1593442

You can buy countless gps units that output serial data. You do not need a raspi or sbc to interface with it, a microcontroller can write to sd card without usb required, also GREATLY reduce power consumption.
Under a car is the ideal place for gps, other than on the roof. Maybe just don't put it right in the middle and try to keep away from exhaust or anything moving.
But signal is better reflected from the road than inside the cabin generally...

Can you give some links? Im totally new to this.

Its just going to degrade in accuracy but it will fix mostly, the neo6mv2 I have works inside a building, just with terrible (~40m) accuracy. If you literally would like to have that thing under a car, well, it will fix.

This isn't to go on a girls car, who you aren't married to, is it?

Im a student of electrical engineering intrested in spy toys and millitary tech.
I will probably sell it after im done making it.

Im white, you spazing pickle brain.

OP, you are obviously severely retarded and do not posses the capacity to construct the device in question.

Otherwise it's trivial and there are many similar hobby projects online, especially for APRS.
