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.

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.

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:

Someone took my garmin nuvi 250w can i track it?


sadly, no. garmin and most GPS devices are strictly GPS receivers, meaning they do not output any kind of signal that can be tracked. If your device has been stolen, i recommend that you register your device if it is not already registered with Garmin.

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!!
