i have low jack installed in my GA [its a security system that allows police to locate your car if it is stolen]. does this mean that i have a gps receiver inside my car?

^ What is the point of that post? :rolleyes: (<- edit, referring to worthless post from a dumbass member, not intended for sicc. It's great having people who contribute nothing around here :rolleyes: )

I'm not sure if the technology has changed in Lo Jack, but when it was first released it had nothing to do with GPS. It only worked if a local PD had a reciever box, and when activated it beeps and a light blinks in the general direction where your car can be found. So it didn't even give an exact location, just a general idea of where to look for your car. Now it's possible that the technology has improved but I have not heard. How long have you had it installed?

See: LoJack (http://www.lojack.com)

Now what we have here is much better: Boomerang Tracking (http://www.boomerangtracking.com)
Which LoJack just bought/acquired.

Boomerang 2 (http://www.boomerangtracking.com/en/technology/boom2.asp) is a GSM/analog wireless tracking device.
If the car moves without the keyring transporter key fob; it starts a stolen vehicle tracking & they try to call you, & the police.
The car is area monitored like every 15-minute, battery backed-up, & if the car is moved with out the keyring transporter key fob, it starts a tracking team to locate your car.

no its not GPS,GPS uses satellites and low jacks have nothing to do with the GPS satellites
