My tomtom Go Live 1535TM was stolen at Vallejo Plaza, along redwood st and sonoma Boulevard


There is one thing you can do if you have the serial number of your device. You can find it on the device itself and on a sticker on the packaging of your device. If your device was registered to your TomTom account, you could try contacting TomTom support by phone and ask if they can give you the serial number when you provide them you're account data.
Once you have the serial number you go to the police station and inform them your device was stolen. If you're lucky, one day the police will find the gagsters who stole your GPS, and if they find lots of stolen products, they will probably check the police computer to check if the serial numbers are reported as stolen.

My tom tom was stolen can it be located with gps?


No, a GPS device will only receive signals from the satellites in space. A GPS will never transmit any signal to the satellites because it's a one way communication.
If you have the serial number (you can find it on the device itself or on the box) you could go to the police and inform them your GPS was stolen and provide them your serial number. If you're lucky and the police finds a gang of thieves and they find lot's of stolen things, they will check the serial numbers through the police computer to check if they're not reported as stolen. Then there is a chance you will get your GPS back.

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.

I have a Garmin Nuvi 200, it was stolen, where would I find the serial number?


The serial number is on the bottom of the unit where the decal is. You may also find a white sticker on the box too. Always write this info down and keep it in a safe place before using an item.

A stolen GPSMAP 60Cx is it posible to locate it once it is turned on???


Sorry, no. Report serial number and internal ID number(if known) to Garmin and the Police. If a map is ever unlocked for it or it comes in for repair at least Garmin will know.

I think my nuvi was stolen


No, A GPS only has a receiver. It does not have a transmitter that can be used for locating. If you know your Nuvi's serial number and User ID number, you might want to report it to Garmin as well as your local Police. If the unit is ever turned into Garmin for repair, they will notify the authorities and you will get it back.

You can also post your stolen Nuvi here as well:

Is it possible to track a stolen GPS with the serial number?


Garmin has a large hard drive with all the points of interest inside the device.
All the device does is read the GPS coordinates that are broadcasted by the GPS satellites and processes data based on what it receives. It doesn't need to send any information to a central server.
If GPS was able to communicate two ways, there wouldn't be a need to purchase map upgrades for new roads, points of interest, etc...
I just got my Garmin stolen within the past 23 hours, and as much as I wish there was a way, there isn't...

Stolen camera


Using the software is not going to help you locate the serial number for the camera.

The serial number for the camera is located on the warranty card that came with the camera. You also may be able to contact Olympus Customer Service if you registered the camera on their website as they may be able to look up that information for you. Their telephone number is 800-622-6372 option 2 and then option 3

Pin number


There are only three ways to unlock the GPS.

1) Get the PIN from whoever you bought it from.
2) Take the GPS to the location it was at when the PIN was set.
3) Send the unit to Garmin to have it reset. For return information: CLICK HERE

If you can't get the PIN from whoever sold it to you online, it is probably a stolen unit. You should contact your local police dept with a the serial number to see if it turns up in their database. If it is stolen, you may be eligible for a refund from the online auction house because you were defrauded. At the very least you should file a complaint with the auction house to prevent this sub-human from screwing other people the way he screwed you.
