On January 27, 2013, the owner of a 2007 Audi Q7 contacted the Newark Police Department to report that his vehicle had been stolen. The customer told police that earlier that night he had left his car running while he ran into a pizzeria to pick up his order, but when he returned for the vehicle, it was missing. The customer also called the LoJack Call Center to report the theft.

The Newark Police Department verified the theft and entered the vehicle information into the state and federal crime computers, which automatically activated the LoJack transponder concealed in the 2007 Audi Q7.

A short time later, a police officer from the Newark Police Department picked up the silent LoJack homing signals coming from the stolen Audi Q7 on the Police Tracking Computer installed in his patrol vehicle. Following the directional and audible cues from the LoJack computer, the officer tracked the vehicle to the Iron Bound section of Newark, where the vehicle was recovered parked and undamaged.

The LoJack Vehicle Recovery System was installed in the 2007 Audi Q7 on November 9, 2012 at Park Ave Acura (O) in Maywood, New Jersey.
