SOURCE: I have a GPS Tracking device I want to add.

Go below steering columb. Remove knee panel and catch a heavy guage red wire with test light. Should be hot with key off. Use a ground in that area directly to metal. Also a good place to hide the unit.

Check out LoJack to see if it can be installed on the computer. If it ever gets lost that can locate it and shut it down and even erase the hard drive if necessary

How do I track and get gps location on a cell phone for free when all I know is the number?


On an iPhone you have a Free App to download called Find iPhone.
Generally this is used for locating a lost or stolen iPhone, using another iPhone or Computer and with the ability to remotely play a sound to help locate the device or Delete all the Data on that iPhone remotely.
If you have 2 iPhones or more in a family and they share the same Apple ID Account that you use to purchase Apps (through iTunes) and to Manage & Backup your data & Apps. If both iPhones use the same Apple ID & Password then the "Find iPhone" App can be used to check and see the GPS position of the other iPhone on a map.
The tracking is not saveable as a file. Also www.icloud.com can be used to log in and see the location of all devices in the family (on the same Apple Account).
There is also an App called Find Friends that allows you to track friends current location but it does require & request their permission when first used.
You could also get a free App and install it on the other persons iPhone and simply have it running in the background to remember all GPS location data during a period of time. e.g. a "Pedometer" to track a persons movements. You would require access to the iPhone at some point to recover that data by plugging in to a computer using iTunes to recover the location data. Running some GPS Apps in the background will noticeably reduce the battery as all GPS tracking devices do.
Figure out the details by installing the Pedometer or iTrack App on your own phone first.

Is it possible to get the location of the GPS device by any means?


There are units on the market that track gps units. We have them here in trucks and they report the position and other data directly back to the home base.

My boat is pointed in the wrong direction on my Raymarine C80 chartplotter?


I'm not sure where you would locate "reset to factory specifications". Look for it in the GPS menus (may be in the System) and reset, it is no big deal to reset a GPS, it will not hurt anything. I the GPS is set to back Track. To check this turn your boat around and follow the track on the lake chart. If you and your boat are now going in the same direction the GPS was set on Back Track.

How do i locate my lost tomtom gps


Hi,
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

Hello 1234567i,

Most GPS receivers are not designed to be used for tracking. The GPS receives signals from Global Positioning Satellites and then uses those signals to calculate its current location, which it displays on the screen. However that data is not normally sent anywhere externally so there is no way for a remote user to determine where the GPS is.. Thus you cannot use a computer or any other device to track the GPS.

The Navigon 5100 appears to be no exception.

Without pairing the GPS with an external communications device (cell phone, two-way radio, laptop with a WiFi connection, etc.) the GPS lacks the ability to transmit its location reports to any external source. There certainly are ways that a GPS can be used with an external communications device as a tracker, but most GPS receivers do not have this capability out of the box.

Best Regards,
Ken

Can a car gps system be tracked by its location ( a single unit) if it was stolen and then used by the suspect?


Hello bulldog6895,

No, you cannot typically track most GPS devices. A GPS receives signals from orbiting Global Positioning Satellites and then uses the information from those signals to calculate its position on the earth. That information is reports on the screen of the GPS but that's it. The information isn't sent anywhere and can't be received by outside devices.

There are tracking devices that use a GPS receiver combined with a radio transmitter or cellular phone transmit to send the location reports in a way that can be received by outside parties, which enables tracking. However, most GPS units do not have this capability.

Best Regards
