Our Background With Electronic Tracking
In 1996, our firm was the first in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area to offer doppler-based vehicle tracking. This was prior to electronic tracking laws and before the mainstream public had heard of GPS. We designed Doppler tracking transmitters along with a matching 360 degree direction finding receiving system. Soon thereafter we were the first agency in the area to develop a remote GPS-based vehicle tracking device by harnessing the power of the GPS system and pairing it to the new analog cellular network. Since 1996 the laws have changed as well as the technology and we have kept up with both.
In short, the Virginia law concerning electronic vehicle tracking is that the person having the tracking device placed on a vehicle must be a registered (not marital asset) owner of the vehicle and listed on the current. If someone other than them is driving the vehicle, the tracking device can only be placed by a licensed (DCJS) private investigator in Virginia.
