    Just goes to show that even a modest tracker is better than none at all:Smile:

    Very good news but nothing we didn't already know regarding the effectiveness of a tracker. What would be really useful to members is, how did they nick it in the first place, that would help folks take better precautions. As an ex copper I know how difficult it is to take a modern vehicle without the key. Most vehicle thefts occur after the scrote has gotten hold of keys somehow. I notice that the van is on a recovery vehicle. Is this what was used to take the MH ?, if so then it may have been just hauled up onto the back of it, what were the circumstances?. Pleasing end result though. I've got a cheap tracker from eBay that sends a text to my phone if the van moves more than 200m. It works very well and has caught me out twice when I forgot to switch it off, they are well worth the money.
