Dear All, i know these conventional trackers are getting unreliable now a days, but i always convience other by saying that, usign tracker does not gaurantee u 100% theft protection, but there is chance ( or u can say 50% probability) to recover your car.
Beside stated abov, there are few recovery cases of cars due to tracker (just for reference, one car stolen from my chachu's street having tracker, lead police to recover that car along with 6 other cars from gang). Anyways in my point of view it's the game of PROBABILITY, u might be lucky or may be not.
How i care about my car:
There is no need to repeat here that one who can afford 1.5~2.0 million worth car he can spend few thousand on its protection, yes he can; we all know it.
I always prefer tracker with pre theft features (new in market) in my car. It informs u (upto three ppl) before theif enter ur car with in 6 seconds, some modles are with Anti-jamming functions (which make resistance for some seconds to jammer and send information message to owner in mean time). It cost only 25k and no other cost for rest of its life (i mean trackers life).
Again there is no 100% probability that this will recover ur car but i must say probability is 80% for recovery for this tracker (i know few ppl who's cars were recovered on spot while using this system).
I use the following in my car;
1. The above stated new tracker
2. The conventional tracker (with back up support from control room)
3. Portable very small size tracker (which can be place any where in car, even in boot, normally called as personal tracker)
4. Steering lock.
5. Last but not least 'Ayetul Kursi'.
In our engineering practice, we always provide back-up support to make our system available 100%. Two concept are used i.e. 2 x 100% or 3 x 50%. By getting idea from this, i use other two trackers as a back-up.
5. Only 30 seconds.
Total cost = 68000 and 30 seconds gives me total mental satisfaction.
