Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
Are you asking if it is legal to trace the GPS unit to its owner or is it legal to use a GPS device to track someone?
Sorry, Did Not Know How To Respond To Your Answer. If Someone Places A Gps Tracker On Your Car Can You Identify
The only way to track the GPS device itself to find out who owns it is to subpoena the records of the company that made it or where it was bought and they may have that information. There is no other way to find it.
As to whether it is legal, in VA it is not illegal to place a GPS tracking device on someone else's vehicle. There was a law they tried to pass in VA last year but it did not pass and they haven't proposed it and passed it again this year.
I would ask you to consider changing the rating you issued earlier. A "Bad Service" rating tells the website that i didn't try to assist, was rude, didn't answer your question, was unprofessional, etc. I understand that you didn't mean to us that since you weren't sure how to respond but if you change it now to a Positive Rating it erases the negative one.
