Odd, where was your bike stolen from?

Currently in the Houston area Lojack has a 97% recovery rate in the first 24 hours and 99% overall.

Get a iphone/ or any with GPS , add it to your Share plan, give it a Power supply and you have a GPS tracking device you can follow on Google that is always sending its coordinate..

A few questions for you:
Are you affiliated with finditnow?
Where was your bike stolen from?
When was it stolen?
What system did you have? I'm assuming at the $1000.00 price you quoted it was the Early Warning and you probably had a couple of additional warranties?
Did you get a refund on your system?
I'd like to investigate your case further with Lojack, so if you'll pm me your info I can try to find out what the failure was.


There's been multiple threads here about the pros and cons of GPS vs Lojack.
I'm always open to new methods of theft deterrent, but so far I haven't found one that offers imo a better deal than Lojack.


Some of the benefits Lojack provides are: direct LEO tracking, no interference issues that GPS can have, no monthly fees, Early Warning Notification, their recovery rate at least here in Houston, and their warranty if your bike is not recovered.

Obviously the largest con is the limited coverage area, but the Early Warning System pretty much negates that as it doesn't give the thieves enough time to get out of the coverage area.

Yep, we sell and install the system, I'm pretty sure everyone on the board already knows that.
I've got no vested interest in the company, and like I said, I'm always open to a review of any theft deterrent system. I also like to keep track of the performance of anything I sell, from a theft deterrent system to a tire.

So to clarify, you paid close to $1000.00 for your system and it was the earlier one without Early Warning?

What dealer installed it?

What additional coverages did you have?

At the time you bought it, I'm assuming you lived in Beaumont?

How long have you been covered with find it now?

Do you know what their recovery rate is?

I just want to say, definitely keep answering and asking. I am seriously interested in all that is said about both systems. I spend a lot of my time outside Harris county, so something that works abroad is of interest. Keep up the good work guys.

Nice detective work! But I'm glad for the post...it highlights where to take extra precautions with a lo-jack equipped bike. If I had lojack, I would treat my security differently on, say, a Colorado bike trip thru rural texas.

But as far as I can tell, Lo Jack is the shitz for getting a stolen bike back. Props to Patrick for selling these.
