Beware of Autocop Trackpro. Their tracking service has become too bad now. I've it in three of my cars and almost everyday there is some problem.

Either server is down or simply no update.

Most of the time they have a standard excuse: "... the sim needs to be flushed, ... your complaint is registered, we will send a mechanic within 24 hours". Now the mechanic will call after 3-4 days to find if car is available at registered address at that very moment, otherwise he will close the complaint.

Another excuse is "..... the car engine is possibly switched off hence its position cannot be updated.." No use telling them that tracker its connected to car battery.

I guess that autocop trackpro have too many customers and unable to handle the load.

I would request tsk1979 to give a fresh/current detailed advise on how to buy a GPS tracker and D.I.Y.

Guys, any suggestions to install a gps tracker in Duster?

The car in question comes with factory fitted central locking (w/ remote), so the autocop guys are saying, only geo fence, speed alarm will work and nothing else, like door open alarm, immobilization, sms lock/unlock etc.

Wanted to know if any of you have used any tracker with these features with cars having factory fitted central/remote locking?

Came across this tracking device on Aliexpress. Has anyone used this, or familiar with? I want to know about its reliability.

Came across this news article. The average road-side thief may not be capable but it was going to be only a matter of time until the tech savvy ones find a way around tracking devices.

If you thought your car was safe because you have installed a "foolproof" GPS-enabled security system, you need to think again. Cars thieves are using devices that can jam a vehicle's GPS signal and make it go off the grid. Sleuths of the Anti-Auto Theft Squad (AATS) fear that these portable, battery-run devices might also be employed in kidnapping and other crimes involving GPS-enabled cabs.

Just by jamming GPS you cant create much damage as long as GSM connectivity of these devices is not compromised. Outside India, typically thieves use GSM jammers. This way even if GPS is ON and locating its position, its of no use if it cannot use GSM network to transmit its location to backend server/user.

I know of tracking devices available in India, which come with jamming detection. Once they detect jamming is being done, these devices can be configured to trigger immobilizer, honk, hazard lights, alarms, etc
