In 2013, nearly 15,5 thousand cars were stolen in Poland. Less than a quarter of the vehicles were recovered. It means that 12 thousand drivers did not see their cars anymore.
This can be avoided by using the radio system for vehicle location – GanTrack offered by Gannet Guard Systems. GanTrack operates in frequency bands that cannot be disrupted even by the best jammers of electromagnetic waves used by thieves. In contrast to the standard locators like GPS/GSM, the GanTrack module does not loss coverage in underground garages or steel containers.
At the time of installation, the device goes into the sleep mode and is activated only after the theft notification. This action prevents the thief to find the place where the module is installed in the vehicle and does not arouse suspicion. Another advantage is its own independent power supply – the battery – depending on the chosen option operates for 12 or 36 months. The module does not intervene in the factory electrical system of the vehicle, so it does not stop working after disconnecting the battery. You also do not need to worry about losing manufacturer’s warranty.
Car recovery procedure is simple. The user should immediately notify law enforcement agencies and the alarm central of Gannet Guard Systems of the theft. After checking the notification, the action of tracking begins. The module shall be remotely activated, which enables to locate the stolen vehicle. Both ground and air units (special aircraft), which are fitted with devices capturing the signal transmitted by the module. The most often, stolen vehicle is located within 24 hours of receipt of the notification.
Efficiency of the GanTrack system is over 90 percent, and the car is localized with an accuracy of 3 centimeters; Gannet Guard Systems experts emphasize that they cooperate with the police, which ensures the legality of the search activities.
Advantages and effectiveness of the system, certified by the Kielce University of Technology and the Automotive Industry Institute (PIMOT) are recognized by insurance companies, offering the owners of cars fitted with GanTrack discounts on motor hull insurance.
