Vehicle, marital property?

Is a vehicle in your spouses name with both spouses on the insurance considered to be marital property? Is it legal to put a GPS tracker on the vehicle?

For equitable distribution purposes, a vehicle that was acquired during the marriage, regardless of whether it is titled to one spouse or both, is marital property unless it was acquired as an inheritance.

You can put a GPS tracker on a vehicle that is titled in your name if there are no domestic violence issues but you cannot put a GPS tracker on a vehicle that is not titled in your name.
