Now that "looks" a fantastic system and a bargain price on the duration of ownership monitoring (if you intend to keep the vehicle for a while)
I would like to see the recovery rates, ie vehicles recovered vs How many actually stolen, Hopefully it will be far better than the none equiped average, the only slight downer is that they are not saying on their site.
I have seen figures of 90% bandied about on forums, but none of the makers seem to say, I would certainly want to know.
Initialy I would think there are several ways to defeat Tracker, one it would obviously need to be powered by the vehicle battery, remove vehicle battery it would then I assume switch to a backup this would have to be very small ( the tracker is an Hidden unit ) so Just on Physics alone I would guess 1-3 days max on the back up.
Jamming, tracker will have a licenced frequency Jamming would be an easy thing to do.
Having a detector to see whether vehicle is Tracked
Cover and Strip, Hide in a shipping container underground parking these would absorb the signal strip and search the vehicle, theres only so many places and its extra wiring, not easy but not to difficult either.
Thats Just me thinking out loud probably more ways to defeat.
Note that they are getting European coverage, this costs more but, will maybe interest long term travelers.
