General statistics of passenger cars hijacking for the last years continuously grows. Practice shows a gradual decrease in native automobiles theft. However, foreign models remain to be highly sought among hijackers.

Small sizes of tracking devices enable to place them in any convenient place of vehicle saloon. With that they operate from a battery, so they will be absolutely invisible to onlookers. As a rule, a tracking device stands-by and gives no signs of its operation. The device switching occurs only upon signal coming from the vehicle owner.

To define its coordinates the device uses antennas and satellites of mobile phone providers.
