Last year in Poland nearly 15 500 cars were stolen, and less than one – quarter of them was recovered. This means that 12 000 drivers never saw their car again.
GanTrack it is a radio based system for the location of stolen vehicles, which allows for quick recovery of stolen property. The unit bases its operation on radio frequencies bands that even jammers of electromagnetic waves cannot overcome.
Unlike standard locating tools like GPS/GSM, the GanTrack module does not lose coverage in the underground garages or steel containers. At the time of installation, the device goes into the so – called ‘sleep mode’ and is activated only after the notification of theft. This action prevents a 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 runs for 12 or 36 months. The module does not intervene in the factory electrical system of the vehicle so disconnection of the battery is of no benefit. And you also do not have to worry about losing the manufacturer’s warranty.
Car recovery procedure is very simple. The obligation of the client is to inform the law enforcement agencies and the Gannet Guard Systems (company offering GanTrack) alarm central about the theft as soon as possible. Once the notification is verified, search action begins. The module is remotely activated, which enables to locate a stolen vehicle.
Both ground and air units (special aircraft) equipped with devices capturing the signal transmitted by the module are used for tracking. Search action is carried out smoothly, and the stolen car is the most often located within 24 hours from notification.
„Every car can be stolen. The point is to find it – says Teresa Kabat, a proxy at Gannet Guard Systems. „The effectiveness of GanTrack system is over 90%, which means that we are able to locate and recover almost every stolen car. We do this with an accuracy of up to 3 centimetres, so there is no mistake, if e.g. the vehicle was hidden in a line of garages standing next to each other. It is worth noting that we are cooperating with the police, which ensures the legality of actions’.
