TRACKER launches 'most advanced tracking device now on the market'
TRACKER Locate incorporates GSM, GPS and VHF technology in one unit to provide a robust stolen vehicle recovery solution that has three means of location and two means of communication. Importantly the technology has intelligent signal jamming detection and has been specifically designed for the stolen vehicle recovery market.
Stephen Doran, managing director, TRACKER, explains: 'Jamming remains a persistent threat for car owners, police and the motor industry across Europe. It involves thieves blocking a satellite signal to a GPS receiver, or preventing GSM-based communication with a tracking device, making it impossible to trace stolen vehicles. Those who rely only on GPS and GSM solutions to help recover stolen assets are probably unaware of the system’s vulnerability, but in truth there really shouldn’t be a sole reliance on this technology. In fact, the UK police routinely find GPS and GSM jammers in stolen cars.
'The new TRACKER Locate system, which combines VHF with GPS and GSM technology, is far more resilient against this form of attack. Not only does it offer motorists an effective safeguard against theft, it greatly increases the chances of a stolen vehicle’s recovery and exposing the thief to a potential conviction.'
