Locating the GPS on Electric Scooters: A Comprehensive Guide

Electric scooters have been on the rise in recent years, offering a convenient and environmentally friendly mode of transportation for city dwellers and commuters alike. One widespread feature – particularly on rentable dockless scooters One widespread feature – particularly on rentable dockless scooters – is the inclusion of GPS tracking. But where is the GPS on the electric scooters, and how does it function? In this article, we'll dive into the details and explain how to locate the GPS on electric scooters.


The GPS (Global Positioning System) on electric scooters is an essential component for safety, security, and convenience. It ensures users can find and rent available scooters, helps law enforcement track down stolen scooters, and allows the scooter company to monitor their fleet efficiently.


Typically, the GPS tracker is discreetly installed inside the scooter, hidden away from plain sight to avoid tampering or removal. The most common locations for the GPS tracker are:



  1. Under the scooter deck: In many cases, the GPS tracker is located beneath the scooter deck – the flat part where you place your feet while riding. This location offers some protection from external factors and keeps the GPS safe from theft or intentional damage.

  2. Inside the handlebar stem: Another popular location is within the handlebar stem – the vertical part connecting the handlebars to the front wheel. This location keeps the GPS tracker close to the controller and provides an unobtrusive appearance. Some scooter designs may include a more visible GPS housing on the stem, but this is less common.

  3. Integrated into the scooter's hardware: In some higher-end scooter models, the GPS module is built directly into the scooter's hardware. This seamless integration may enhance overall performance, provide a sleeker appearance, and further protect the GPS tracker from potential harm.


To locate the GPS tracker on an electric scooter, it's essential to understand the specific model you own or rent. Check the user manual or consult the scooter company's support team for information regarding the GPS tracker's location in your scooter. In some cases, you may find markings or labels on the scooter itself indicating the presence of a GPS device.


With an ever-growing number of electric scooters on the market, GPS tracking becomes increasingly important for user convenience and fleet management. By understanding where the GPS is located, you'll be better equipped to take advantage of its benefits and maintain your scooter's security.
