The company’s special operations division has tailored its technology to work in sat-nav devices too. Tracker is making the special units only available to police forces running covert operations set up to snare thieves who snatch portable sat-nav systems.
Visually, the systems look like standard units. Inside, however, they are equipped with Tracker’s technology that enables the police to trace and track its exact location.
Parita Patel, marketing manager for Tracker, said: ‘We have an extremely close working relationship with the police and we do all we can to help the fight against crime. For obvious reasons, little is known about our special operations division which the police call upon to develop a variety of systems to help catch thieves.’
