Important Reminder: USE CAUTION when it comes to using a GPS unit to track a vehicle.

A GPS unit is commonly used to receive communication from a tracking device for various purposes. In Michigan, however, it is illegal to install a tracking device on another individual’s vehicle pursuant to MCL 750.539l.

Legal Exception:

A LICENSED private investigator may use a GPS receiver so long as the investigator is attempting to secure evidence to be used before a court, board, officer, or investigating committee.

This would mean that, under certain circumstances, you could hire a private investigator to track your spouse or another third-party vehicle through a GPS receiver.
