Imagine a scene straight out of Bollywood. A thief manages to sneak into your car. Starts it and begins a mad dash towards eternity. You realize that your car has just been stolen. You borrow your friend’s car get into it with your woman and begin a chase. The thief realizes that he is being chased by you and begins to drive rashly, trying to get rid of you. You too begin to outwit the thief and take a short cut and manage to stop just in time in front of your car making him stop. You get out of the car and after a mad fight, finally manage to make the thief run away. You get your car back, and come back home a hero. Cut. Happy Ending!
However, what happens in films seldom happens in real life. And thank goodness the chase as described doesn’t happen in reality. Imagine the condition your car would be in after that series of rash driving.
So what happens when car gets stolen in real life?
We all know how easy it is for professional thieves to hack into even the most sophisticated locking system in cars today. Beside there are other ways that thieves are aware about stealing a car that many of us can fail to prevent. So suppose if your car, the thing that you saved money for or worse, still paying an EMI for today, does get stolen in real life. What do you do next? Go to the nearest police station; register an FIR and then what? You wait until you are lucky enough that the cops take efforts to find your car. Otherwise it’s safe to assume that it’s as good as gone. With no possible way to track your stolen car, it’s very difficult to recover it.
This is where GPS (Global Positioning System) tracking technology comes in. GPS technology works on a device which is connected to your car, hidden away from sight and it can be accessed remotely almost anywhere from a software on a computer or an app on your mobile. The device transmits location of your car at regular intervals, which makes it easy for you to locate the car anytime. With a single click on your phone that has the registered mobile number, you can switch off the engine of your car remotely. This way, the person driving the car is left stranded inside it which only you can start. So even if the car is stolen, you do not have to worry about chasing your own car in a Bollywood style to get it back. You simply have to click a button on a phone with your registered mobile number, go to the nearest police station, show them the location of your car and successfully recover it.
It’s true that GPS technology too had its own flaws in the past, however, more and more sophisticated technologies such as iWay Track, have emerged in the market that give you more than what you expect from a little device. Apart from giving you the location of your car, it gives you reports for fuel filling, maintenance, over-speeding, route playback, travel summary, air conditioner status, speed per trip, etc. If you get into technicality, the iWay Track system is a combination of cellular component and satellite transmissions, gives the exact information using electronic maps via internet and our specialized software. So, now is the time to give your car extra protection from iWay Track, and save it from the car chors.
