LoJack Tracking a Stolen Vehicle, Theft Recovery Seems so Easy

LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System is an aftermarket vehicle tracking system that allows vehicles to be tracked by police after being stolen. The manufacturer claims a 90% recovery rate. The name “LoJack” was coined to be the “antithesis of hijack”, meaning the theft of a vehicle through force. Today, LoJack’s core business comprises the tracking and recovery of cars, trucks, construction equipment, commercial vehicles and motorcycles. Additionally, LoJack is expanding into newer, emerging markets through licensing agreements and investments in areas such as cargo security. LoJack Corporation claims that over 200,000 vehicles have been recovered worldwide since the product was introduced more than two decades ago.

A vehicle is stolen every 26.4 seconds in the U.S. Last year alone, 1.2 million vehicles were stolen across the country. Depending upon where you live and what make and model you drive, you may be at risk. There is little you can do to prevent a car from being stolen. Alarms and other deterrents are not enough. However, with LoJack you can take control and ensure that if your car is stolen, you’ll get it back.

Take control and protect your vehicle with LoJack. The patented LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System includes a small Radio Frequency transceiver hidden in one of up to 20 places in your vehicle. Each LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System has a unique code that is tied to the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). When a vehicle theft is reported to the police, a routine entry into the state police crime computer results in a match of the LoJack System’s unique code against the state VIN database. This automatically activates the LoJack Unit in your vehicle, which emits an inaudible signal. Law enforcement authorities who are equipped with LoJack Police Tracking Computers—in their police cars and aviation units—are always listening for a LoJack signal. Police use the LoJack Police Tracking Computers to track and recover your stolen LoJack-equipped vehicle.

LoJack in Actions!

  • Over 200,000 vehicles have been recovered worldwide since the product was introduced, with over 100,000 recovered in the U.S. alone.
  • Worldwide, LoJack has helped law enforcement track and recover more than $4 billion in stolen assets to date.
  • LoJack offers a money-back guarantee if your vehicle is not recovered within 24 hours. The system comes with a two-year, 24-hour recovery warranty.
  • LoJack owners may be eligible for insurance discounts. Check to see insurance information for your state.

LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System
A small, silent transmitter hidden in a vehicle allows the police to track and recover it. The unit is hidden within the vehicle in a claimed random location, though due to time constraints imposed on the installers, is usually limited to common locations that are known to thieves. Potential thieves are unlikely to find it even if specifically searching for it, though professional thieves know where to look and how to identify the unit(s).
LoJack Early Warning
