Cannot prevent loss of vehicle
Tracking Devices do nothing to prevent the
theft of your vehicle
“Success” for a tracking company may not be “Success” for you.
It takes a thief less than 8 minutes to strip what they want for from your vehicle. How long will they have your car before you determine it is missing?
Tracking systems do nothing to prevent the loss of your vehicle. They are there to get it back. But what condition will it be in when it comes back? Once you report your car stolen, police departments send the VIN to the DMV, where it eventually finds its way to companies that track car histories, such as CarFax. Once the vehicle is recovered, it is de-valued, and you will not get the resale value you would have if it was never stolen.
And most tracking systems are easy to defeat. Sometimes it is as simple as breaking off the antenna or covering it with metal, and the GPS system is useless. If the GPS antenna can not see a satellite, the car cannot be tracked.
based systems are nearly as easy to defeat. Simply driving into a concrete
parking structure blocks the radio waves. Even shipping cargo containers can
block out the signal.

Why invest in a system that would track your stolen car when you can prevent your vehicle from being stolen in the first place?
