CalAmp announced its subsidiary, Tracker, has partnered with Stoneacre Motor Group to combat rising vehicle theft in the UK Stoneacre will offer past, present, and future customers the option of having a Stolen Vehicle Recovery (SVR) service from Tracker fitted to their new or used car or light commercial vehicle (LCV).
The new partnership aims to protect customers against the rising threat of keyless vehicle theft, which has increased significantly in recent years. In 2020, 93% of the stolen vehicles Tracker recovered had been taken by thieves using technology to intercept keyless car fob signals, an increase of 27% over the last 5 years.
Tracker is the SVR provider offering vehicle tracking systems that are supported nationwide by U.K. police forces. Tracker SVR solutions work like an electronic homing device. A covert transmitter is hidden in one of several dozen places around the vehicle. There is no visible aerial, so the thief won’t even know it’s there. The combination of VHF with GPS/GSM technology, unique to Tracker, makes its units resistant to GPS/GSM jamming, which allows the stolen vehicle to be located even if stored underground, in a metal container, or even if it is successfully shipped to Europe. Tracker is simply a superior security defense against determined thieves.
