Tracker recently played a key role in helping Manchester Police recover a stolen Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG, valued at £42,000.

The vehicle was reported missing by a neighbour, who saw the burglary take place at the owner’s house in Broadheath. 

It was fitted with a tracking device and once this was activated, police received a signal via Tracker’s Mesh Network. They were able to locate the vehicle while it was still on the move in Manchester.

Adrian Davenport, police liaison manager for Tracker, said: “Although a tracking device won’t stop a car being stolen, it does increase the chances of police recovering and returning the vehicle to its owner."
