Does anyone know of anyone in Florida that can look for a tracker on my car. Pretty positive my ex has one on my car. I moved to another STATE and he just happened to run into me. Someone please please help! I am very afraid for my life and my daughter's. I have contacted the police and the Sheriff, and no help! I had to get a retraining order against him where we use to live, and tried to get one where I live now, but they said I don't have enough evidence. As soon as the restraining order expired he called me. I even changed my number. I then moved far away so he couldn't find me and he did. I'm really scared!!!! Did I mention he was in the special forces and worked for another company that spys and kills the "enemy".

Also, document things (dates and times), get pictures. They may have a tough time explaining things later on.

If you have a GPS enabled phone and have location services running the cops can track your phone, although they legally need a court order to do so. Turn off your location services when you don't need them and see what happens.

I know I'm being tracked. Cops show up wherever I go and I have done nothing wrong. A while back, I was in Iowa. I noticed two cruisers following me. I pulled off the side of the road and hid behind a building and watched them pass-bye. They went about a half a mile down the road and turned back around. Later that night I was in a truck-stop and I man came up and started asking me questions. I answered a few before i got suspicious, then i walked away. When i was getting ready to leave, I heard say to another man, that him. There have been countless similar incidences in the past. Don't I have a right to my privacy. This has been going on for years. I just feel as though they have wasted a lot of money on someone that has done absolutely nothing wrong. All I really want to do is to see if I'm right about my suspicions or am I just

I thought I should be typing an question and just decided I knew the answer. I am in my second marriage and again..... again... cannot trust my husband and have many reasons such as texts, calls, etc... You know what? I don't need to spend any more money.

You don't either... Again, this is just my simple awakening at this moment. I knew in the first 15 years of my marriage and now in my second marriage I know now as well. It's a feeling and a shift in character. It's the knowledge that what you explained that you "never wanted to happen" happens. Ladies and men.... we know, we know it and feel it when it happens.......................

I must keep making the same mistakes in my marriages as I keep having the very same results. I blame myself for this time, as I am repeating my insecurity patterns. I hope this helps one person and if it does.... God Bless You!

Did you have any luck finding a device? My ex has started telling me where I am all the time. I believe he has put something on my car and it scares me, at best (why would someone do that?). I would like to find it and have it removed.

If a clown installs it, look udner the car. If a stereo shop installs, then you have your hands full.

These GPS trackers are becoming as popular as radar detectors. Whoever designs a tool to find these things will make big money. If you go to a stereo shop ($65) to find it, then your tracker (local private detective) is paying the guy $250 to play dumb.

These things are a bitch to find, short of having super sophisticated equip.

Maybe Rob will come up with something

Here is the real answer. I am familiar with all devices. The quickest installs are the easiest to find. Just go to a secure mechanic and have you car put on a lift. Have him look for any little extra wires he doesn't understand or any little boxes. Tell him what you are looking for. Then start at the battery area, all under the hood and then inside including the trunk. You cannot hide the wires and the unit very well. They are all easy to detect when you have the time go really go over the car with a mechanic, or better yet, an automotive elec shop (not stereo shop).

The police do not have the detection equipment to locate a tracker or listening device. Here in NY they send people to us to do the service. you may call me and I'll try to help you.

why don't you just go to the police ?

If you have a restraining order set up against your ex - then one would think your suspicions would be justified?!

What would you do if you where being tracked?

The best way to locate a unit that transmits is to have a professional sweep done..They will locate the unit when it transmits...we do here in NY

Depending on the type; as small as a pack of smokes, to as large as a lunch box - just depends on battery life, etc.

If it has an external antenna - it can go anywhere, and then just an antenna - from the size of a grain of rice, to a quarter - would need to be visible towards the sky (for good signal), or it could be burried for less than good signal.

Wheel wells are fair game; trunk, bumper, we have even done them INSIDE the tire... So yes, they can be tough.

If your being tracked, there are usually outward signs - people knowing where you are/have been, calling to check in when your somewhere your not supposed to be, seeing someone you would not normally see there...

Thank you, Eric. That is helpful. Looks like some of these devices are pretty small! Are they usually inside the car, or can they be in wheel well, under hood, etc?
