A car is a status symbol, and one way to tell if someone achieved success is by looking at what they are driving. As the old saying goes, if you have it, flaunt it. Indeed, some of the cars wealthy people own are out of the ordinary; an ostentatious display of vehicular luxury on four wheels. However, these are also the type of cars that attract thieves.
Luxury cars such as Ferrari, Maserati, Porsche, Rolls Royce, or more commonly BMW, and Mercedes-Benz are superior, more powerful, and unique. They are crafted for the driver’s comfort and image. Luxury cars represents the individual's socioeconomic status. Luckily, innovations in anti-theft systems have made it difficult for thieves to rob them. However, a crafty thief with enough time and resources can get away with even the most secure car. GPS tracking systems have become an efficient way of warning cars owners when their car is stolen and can help law enforcement ensure a swift recovery.
Real-time GPS tracking systems like Black Knight are capable of accurately tracking the location of a car at any given time. Our GPS tracking systems come in two varieties: the Z3 which connects directly to the battery of the car, and the X3 – a compact GPS tracker that plugs into the OBD-II port. Once connected and your account is set up, you can track your vehicle using the Black Knight tracking systems website, or the mobile app (available for iOS and Android).
A GPS tracker’s main function is to monitor the car around the clock and send alerts to its owner the it's in motion. Utilising one of its unique features, the geofence, the owner can set a virtual perimeter around their luxury cars which can alert the owner the moment their car leaves the designated area. With this GPS tracking system, the vehicle owner can immediately inform law enforcement and also supply them the location data from the online GPS feed to the police, so they can retrieve the stolen car and place the thief behind bars.
A thief does not car about an individual's reputation or success when looking for a target. Therefore, investing in GPS tracking systems can increase the safety and security of your vehicles, particularly the costly ones. With real-time tracking, deluxe vehicle owners can afford to rest sound during the night, knowing that their socioeconomic status symbol is theft-proofed.
