Often targeted, GPS systems are attractive to thieves – especially domes and portable systems that can be quickly taken from a tractor cab. However, it's not uncommon for agricultural vehicle insurance policies to exclude cover for your GPS once it's been removed from the vehicle.

Don't assume it's covered through your tractor insurance.
