The ability to keep all water and moisture outside of the internal workings of a device. In order to ensure complete water protection for those intending on using a GPS tracker outside of a vehicle, most GPS tracking companies will recommend consumers invest in a waterproof casing accessory.
Devices or products that are classified as "water-resistant" often can continue to operate without interruption when faced with a very light splashing or misting of water. Although products such as GPS tracking devices are often described as having water-resistant capabilities, the limited ability to keep moisture out of the device should be something users pay close attention too. That is because using a GPS vehicle tracker outside of a automobile exposes the device to a wide range of elemental conditions, and can cause damage to the product. Most companies do not offer warranty protection to devices that are water damaged.
