Hi Toni, do you mind telling me which tracker this is please?I've got a function on my tracker to shut the car down from an app on my phone. So I could let them drive off and hit cut off, basically it shuts the car down next time it is stationary. So first junction they're done.
Ok chaps sad to report this has just been shown on the Batallion35, I've uploaded the video below so you can see what looks like key scanning on an R35... apparently happened in the midlands Birmingham last night, they managed to open the car but not start it.........
At 35 seconds in on the video you can see the 2nd thief bottom right of the screen, scanning the front of the house for the key code!
I think autowatch ghost purchases are suddenly going to go rapidly up for our cars after seeing this! EEEEEEEEkkkkkkk!!
and get your Faraday bags off ebay chaps! IF you value you car!
Video - R35 key scanning open car theft attempt
3 months too late but thanks for the reply!Sad that this is happening. Ghost is inexpensive (£400) for such a high level of protection. Really no excuse to purchase it.
A neighbour's car (desirable Audi) was stolen via this method a few years ago and my car is not garaged so I have the same concerns. But just got an alarm fitted that stops all of this (only problem is that there is an immobiliser tag but the dash pin sequence is not yet available for this car).
I think tonigmr2 has metatrak, judging from past posts. Most trackers/alarms can do this now.
Pulled the trigger, considered the issue. Fitted GHOST.This is all very interesting.
I dont have a GTR, yet, but in the market over the next few months.
Currently all of my keys are stored in a biscuit tin, but I was unaware, didnt think, of being tailed after parking the car and loosing it that way. I know the scanners can work over a distance but I would think that I could hear the pipes from some distance as well.
This is something for me to consider when I do finally pull the trigger on a purchase.
Major car retailer lolz at Major....
