Difference between GPS Trackers and Immobilisers.

GPS trackers and immobilisers are both types of vehicle security devices, but they work in different ways.

GPS trackers are designed to locate the vehicle in the event that it is stolen. They use GPS technology to track the vehicle's location and report it back to the owner. GPS trackers can be helpful in recovering a stolen vehicle, but they do not prevent the theft from occurring in the first place.

Immobilisers, on the other hand, are designed to prevent a vehicle from being stolen. They work by disabling the engine, making it impossible for the thief to drive the vehicle away. Immobilisers are typically activated when the owner locks the vehicle or removes the key from the ignition.

The main difference between GPS trackers and immobilisersis that GPS trackers are reactive, while immobilisers are proactive. GPS trackers are useful in helping owners recover a stolen vehicle, but immobilisershelp prevent the theft from happening in the first place.

It's also worth noting that GPS trackers and immobilisers can be used together for added security. By combining the two devices, owners can both prevent theft and have a better chance of recovering their vehicle if it is stolen.
