There is a difference here. Police can follow you monitoring your whereabouts in public.

They don't follow you onto private property, this device can do that.

Also the only reason they put these on cars instead of on a person, say in a briefcase or a watch is b/c miniaturized active tracking tech isn't cheap/available enough--soon enough it will be.
