Seems like a DIY lojack type thing.
If the voltage is the same (which I don't think it will be) you may be able to wire it directly to the car battery and then run the wires into the cabin like someone would run a power wire for a aftermarket amp.

I have a CompuStar security system which also includes a GPS tracker. It runs off its own battery back-up in case a would be thief cuts the main battery. It's also located behind the covering panels in the trunk which is also always kept locked. Only way a thief could get to it is to have a flatbed drag my car to a discrete location to cut into the trunk. By then I could have police at their location to make the bust since I can track in real time where my vehicle is headed via computer or my iPhone App. Oh and they would have to flatbed because the alarm part is also locked in the trunk behind the panels and battery backed up, ...and the starter kill function is hooked up to the ECU's ground, the starter, and the fuel pump. So set the alarm off and those won't come on.

GPS jammer is a widely used gadget today by those who don’t want someone else to track their position wherever they go. Do you have the same concerns? It is easy to prove and prevent the situation simply with a GPS jammer to disable all the gps enable tracking gadgets. Here we got an even more convenient gadget for all, mini portable double frequency GPS jammer with built-in antenna light brown. Details found

Has anybody ever purchased one of these GPS/GPRS tracking devices?

https://www.gearhunder.com/best-gps-tracker-for-car/

I'm interested in buying one and hiding it somewhere in the dash.

I would buy this addon also

Hardwired Car Charger For TK-102 GPS Tracker | eBay

to hardwire it to the car battery instead of using AA batteries. However I do not know much car electronics. How would I connect the wire to a power source?
No no no, if you really want a hidden GPS, don't consider the device hidden somewhere in the dashboard, it is easy to find. Using battery-powered GPS is the right direction, you can place them in a more secret place, only you know. What you need to do is take them out regularly to replace the battery.

I was trained by DEI and started selling them back in 2001. Used to go full tilt on alarms. Been relying more on GPRS tracking since 2007 when my pretty rare track ready black 06 Honda RC51 got stolen with Low Jack. I found out that if you can't call the police and tell them that you are on your way to go recover the item yourself then they are not going to out any priority into it.

That is where GPRS comes in. First off you can't jam a cell phone with a GPS jammer. Also you can't jam cell phones reliably at all. So when you see GPRS then it can get it's location without seeing GPS signals.

Also as far as flatbeds go. That is the main way they steal high end cars if they don't have access to the keys. So if you have a 2001 Type R then it makes sense to go all out on everything. But if you are driving something more normal with full coverage then just don't out your tracker under the driver side. If you hide it anywhere else they won't find it in time.

When you steal a car you don't get to sit and search for shit for 6 hours. If you steel a car with a tracker that the owner can see then you are screwed. Because the owner is going to have a very high priority of recovering their property. Also if you call the police and say my stuff is at this address and I'm on my way they pretty much have to beat you there.

If you have access to a Sprint tracker tag or if you have Verizon and can add a cheap flip phone with Child tracking then that a good back up. Just plug it into a cell phone charger.

I have a tracker tag that is plugged into a portable phone charger battery and then put into a little bag and left in my glove box burried under junk. No one is going to find it and if they do they might not even understand what they found.

Or you could even install a new auxiliary port (cigarette lighter) using a add-a-fuse and hook up the cell phone charger to that so then no one would trace charging cables to tracking cell phone and lob it out the window.
