    Being prepared to not have my car stolen / automobile theft recovery device

    To be prepared, I want to know where my car was taken. Some automobile theft recovery devices only work in the U.S. and some thieves take the car to Mexico. Is there a device that is not too expensive that people on this forum recommend that will help locate the car in Mexico?

    If your car is indeed in Mexico, kiss it good-bye. The cartels are big there, they probably took it to a chop-shop, dismantled it and sold it to wealthy clients on the Yucatan Peninsula.

    A five pound block of TNT under the steering column under hood, primed with a #10 electric will guarantee the thief will not get away with the car.

    The alternate could be a linear shaped charge inside the dash with "V" facing the driver, jet will cut off head of perp when initiated.

    Or for a personal touch a good hard working SMG put to use.

    When that goes off you will know where it is soon as the news comes on.
    If they steal my car or my bike I don't want it back. Give me my insurance check. As for catching them , waste of time DA will let them off anyway and I get a bill for towing and shipping the car back. No thanks.

    I think you guys and your sentiment is okay, but where is that personal touch?

    Yes, I would wire the vehicle. I'd gather a few friends until the thief started looking for a way to bypass my locked doors. Then the first door would open and the thief would be crawling under the dashboard to hot-wire the truck.

    Once his head would disappear under the dash, I would turn to my friend and say, "Hold my beer..."

    Then I would personally press the detonator...

    The optional personal touch would be a GIF made from a WIFI cam in the mirror just before and at the time of detonation.

    Put it on his social page if they ever find out out who it was.

    The vehicle recovery devices use GPS so I'm not sure why they wouldn't work in Mexico. I know LoJack works there.

    LoJack works internationally! When the owner of the 2002 BMW learned that his car had been stolen, he reported it to the police. The police then entered the vehicle’s information into the nationwide law enforcement stolen vehicle computer system.

    A few hours after the owner reported his car stolen to Beaumont Police Department, the silent LoJack signal from the stolen car was picked up in Mexicali, Mexico. A Baja State Police Officer, working in conjunction with the Mexico LoJack licensee Carmart, had received the signal on his LoJack tracker installed in his police car. Mexicali is approximately 150 miles from where the car had been stolen.

    After a few minutes of tracking the signal, the officer observed the car and made a felony stop. The car was occupied by two suspects, one of which admitted stealing the car and driving to Mexicali with the intent of selling the car.

    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    I prep for vehicle theft by not having a vehicle worth stealing. I'm kinda funny that way.

    I agree 100% with BPH. Most of my rigs are only $2500 tops and are 25 years old. Some are converted to manual glow plugs. If you don't know what that extra little black button under the dash is for you'll never get them started.
