    Everything is only as strong as its weakest point. Are you suggesting a super duper all singing dancing tracker can be blocked for £25.....:(

    Please report the item to eBay on the basis that it facilitates illegal activity - I have but I suspect they'll react better if multiple people report it.

    yes I am afraid so Buttons
    It is not exactly high tech.. Hell, from a mile away I can stop you setting your alarm ..
    It is only a device that puts out a really rough very low powered transmission
    It cannot stop a tracker sending out a signal but stops dead any signal trying to get to the tracker to activate it by swamping the receiver as well as that in any gps unit

    I reported it as soon as I found it

    Strictly speaking they are not illegal though
    The fact the only people who would want to block a tracker working is either up to no good or maybe a youngster going somewhere their parents do not want them to go matter not

    I've reported a couple of similar listings. Hopefully eBay will get the massage and act against them all.

    There are others there, a bit more expensive..

    eg. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Car-c...31496a&pid=100011&rk=1&rkt=10&sd=221944456736

    I admit I can't think of any legal reason to have one, but it's probably perfectly legal to sell them. It doesn't need much to block GPS signals as they are very weak (come a long way ) so trackers which depend on GPS don't produce too much of a problem to a thief if they know what they're doing. I have one but I don't expect too much.

    There's loads on ebay, so there must be a demand.
