While GPS is not yet mandatory in India, it has proven itself to be valuable enough for law enforcement to consider making it so. Automobile theft is commonplace in India, both for bikes and cars. Tracking down thieves often proves to be something of an impossible task. With GPS tracking available in mobile devices, notepads and laptops, law enforcement officials have found it much easier to trace the stolen gadgets and hence catch the culprits. Seeing the usefulness of this technology, they are considering making GPS a compulsory requirement in all cars.
With vehicle locators now being an option, police officers are suggesting that people use them in order to keep their cars safe. GPS systems enable your vehicle to be located remotely, thereby letting you find out where you car is no matter where you are. Also, now that thieves are becoming aware of the presence of such a device, it is serving as a strong deterrent.
As they become more technologically advanced, GPS devices too are becoming more affordable. Some companies have weekly discounts on state-of-the-art devices, making GPS accessible to people of all economic backgrounds. And while we know that GPS holds myriad advantages to everyone, law enforcement officials are finding them increasingly beneficial to help make their jobs a lot easier.
