Re: stolen GPS

Unfortunately when you are not using a Truck navigation device then the GPS cannot be located. When you know the serial number of the device then you are able to report the device as stolen at the local police department.

If your model had LIVE services, you could contact TT at 866-486-6866 to at least disable that functionality.

Re: stolen GPS

This would be a bit advanced but when you are able to find a system so you are able to implent a tracking sensor inside the navigation device, then you could locate the device when its stolen regardless if its turned off. Only track the device with the help of the police.:smileywink:
