Question about GPS

1 Answer

My GPS was just stolen. Is there a way to disable it/track it? A gun was stolen at the same time and I would like to try to get it out of the hands of criminals, possibly at the same time.

If I have a garmin 50lm and I got it stolen and they reset it after they turn it on can be be trace or track by law enforcement??????


Car GPS units are receivers only. They do not have a transmitter that can be used for tracking. I am sorry that it was stolen. Report it to Garmin and the police. Also, post it at the following link so people can be made aware of it:

How to recover a stolen gps


Hello,

Unfortunately there is no means of tracking the stolen GPS.
If you have a record of the serial number, you could report it to the police.
The GPS may show up at a local pawn shop and if the police have the serial number on file, they could possibly recover it for you.

Is there away I can track my GPS it was stolen


Unfortunately no! the GPS system acts as a receiver to pickup satellite signals so you can triangulate your position, in order to track your property it would require a transmitter that is unique to the system.

My GPS was stolen


Only if you GPS is working, or in stand by. The manufacturer garmin should normaly be able to get the info if the stoler is using the GPS.

You have specific codes to the GPS, if you have it, you should be able to get in touch with garmin. (not all manufacturers provide this service.

Stolen garmin


No, the unit can not be tracked by radio signals as its a receive only device, however I would contact garmin and let them know (in addition to your local police dept.) that it has been stolen. If you buy a new GPS there are measures you can take to prevent theft & help recover a stolen GPS. Please see this link:

Hi. My Nokia 3110c has been stolen yesterday.


Unfortunately there is no way at the current time to track a phone. People are always coming in trying to track them. The best way would be filing a police report. For future use though, downloading a program like family map or some kind of gps where you can view the lines on your account would be a good feature to have to be able to track it.

How do i locate my lost tomtom gps


Hi,
If your meaning can you track the GPS, no you cannot track a GPS unless it has a tracker fitted, you cannot trace it if it has been stolen,
Ironically, they work in the opposite way to a tracker, it is a locater, not a tracker

BLOCK STOLEN MOBILE USING IMEI NO.


Hi there.
Phone your service provider, tell them its been stolen, if its being used they will send a text to that phone which will disable it from being able to be used. As for tracking it has to have GPS installed in the original software.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
