The enhanced LoJack® Early Warning System contacts vehicle owners by phone, text and email to let them know when their vehicle has been moved without their permission, so they can contact law enforcement immediately and get their car, truck, van or motorcycle recovered quickly.

On May 1st, 2013, the owners of a Ford F-250 pickup truck were contacted by their LoJack® Early Warning System, telling them that their vehicle had been moved without their authorization. After discovering the Ford was not where it had been parked the previous evening, the owners contacted Miami Police. The responding officer entered the truck’s information into their state and federal crime computers. This automatically activated the LoJack device concealed in the pickup truck.

A short while later, a Miami-Dade police pilot picked up the homing signal from the stolen Ford F-250 on the LoJack tracking computer installed in his patrol aircraft. The signal was also tracked by a FL Highway Patrol trooper and a member of the Auto Theft Task Force. The vehicle was located abandoned near N.W. 185th Drive and 10th Court, and sustained only minor damage. It was soon returned to its grateful owners.
