A Vehicle Tracking System…Could Be Your Best Option To Prevent Thieves Taking Your Car.

The Vehicle Tracking System

Since its introduction The Vehicle Tracking System has proved to be the most successful development in vehicle security in recent years.

Radio or satellite positioning (GPS) is at the heart of the system, which constantly reports the current position of a car after it has been stolen. Thieves are unaware that the vehicle is protected by GPS and are surprised when the police arrive at the location to arrest them and recover the stolen car. 

The existence of this technology undermines the confidence of car thieves and has certainly reduced the number of cars being stolen.

Even if your vehicle is taken to France or Spain, or actually stolen whilst visiting one of these countries, your vehicle can still be located.

How Does A Vehicle Tracking System UK Work? A covert transmitter is hidden in one of several possible places around your car. There is no visible aerial or other identifying feature, so the thief can’t see it and won’t know it’s there.

When a vehicle is stolen, the GPS vehicle tracking system is triggered and transmits a unique signal, which enables the police to track it, establish it’s position and take the necessary action.

There is a good choice of vehicle tracking systems available, with a variety of facilities and prices. Some systems will track your car from the moment it is moved without the authorised vehicle key and will communicate with a control centre, the owner and the police, to report that the car may have been stolen.

There is also an option for a motion sensor integrated with your existing vehicle alarm, to let you know when someone is tampering with your vehicle. This alerts you to the security threat before the vehicle is driven, towed away, or removed on a low loader.

Control functions on some GPS vehicle tracking systems allow you to lock and unlock doors, interrupt the starter, remote start the vehicle and set reporting functions via your web enabled PC.

Most police forces are now equipped with devices to track vehicles fitted with this technology. Although it is fairly expensive, owners of valuable and powerful cars that are attractive to thieves, are choosing to protect them with this system.

What is GPS?

The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a worldwide radio-navigation system formed from a constellation of 24 satellites and their ground stations.

GPS uses these satellites as reference points to calculate positions accurate to within a few meters; it’s like giving every square meter on earth a unique address. These days GPS is finding its way into cars, boats, planes, construction equipment, farm machinery and even laptop computers.

GPS devices are now available for your outdoor recreation and travel experience, so that you will always know where you are to within a few meters. Whether you’re hiking, biking, hunting, hang gliding, sailing, driving on the highway or off-road, there’s a suitable GPS device for your needs, which will add to your enjoyment.
