Question about GPS Devices
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.
