    the person or persons that have stolen it may have known it would have a tracker and have removed it .......there actually not fitted too good in the car and can be found ...we used to always fit them under the pasenger seat ..reach under the seat and pull the cables and hey presto it isnt a tracker no more

    Or park in a multi storey car park? I should imagine half a dozen layers of concrete would block the GPS signal?

    iT was on a Bentley continental Gt and was fitted by them apparently thought they'd do a proper job on a £120,000 car
