Before I answer this I would have to know why you are trying to be elusive. Did you steal the van? Are you planning to? Are you going to drive it some place you dont want to be discovered?

GPS trackers are used for a reason. I dont want to help you disable it without first knowing why...

    I would recommend possibly trading the car in the next town, or the
    next state. What is to stop the gang members from placing one on your next car? You have to admit that this sounds a little far fetched. GPS trackers are not cheap! The cheapest I have seen to date is around $150. I can't say that any gang members would spend that kind of money to track you.

    adiemodo: You will first have to locate the antenna of the device. It most likely requires a direct view of the sky at all times. (catch my drift?) Obtain some heavy copper foil and wrinkle it up. Make sure it is grounded with common ground of the automobile... WRAP THE ANTENNA with the copper foil.

    Of course, you can always disconnect the antenna. It SURELY has a connector to facilitate removal for service/installation purposes.

The only way is on Sim type trackers - remove the sim or tracker but some trackers are a micro - implant hidden anywhere on the car, you would need a bug searcher .. .. .. to be honest all too much hassle. Just be honest and ask to borrow the car.

Company just had navman tracker fitted to van, how do i switch or disconect it?

This will depend on a lot of things regarding how it was installed. However, the most likely and easiest way that will probably work is to look for the power supply. If it's just mounted on the dash or something, it will probably be a simple case o pulling out the plug. Of course, it's far more likely that it's attached to the cars power supply proper. So, pop the bonnet, and have a look around. Check close to the battery (lazy mans intallation) or close to the vans electronics equipment, which on a car is usually near the firewall. Somewhere there, you should be able to see either the tracker or it's power connection, which will look different to the Vans power work (if not just newer). Then, it should be a simple case of pulling it out at one end or somewhere in the middle. Of course, fiddling with your vans power circuits is very dangerous, both for you and for the van. And if you do turn it off, it will be quite obvious to your company, too, so you should be careful. Of course, don't come back to me if you've broken it, your van or yourself. You asked the question, and I've never seen the thing, so be careful with what you do. Hope this helps.

How do i locate my lost tomtom gps

If your meaning can you track the GPS, no you cannot track a GPS unless it has a tracker fitted, you cannot trace it if it has been stolen,
Ironically, they work in the opposite way to a tracker, it is a locater, not a tracker

Removing vehicle locator from my dodge caravan

An easier way is to get a gps jammer. They make nice ones for cheap. Check the import sites from china. They make a small unit that plugs into cig lighter socket, and is no bigger than your thumb.
