I did the research. FT was about the same price as LJ, at least on the deal that I got.vip9 said:I got a LoJack.
1. I think 50% cheaper for virtually the same thing.
2. Do more research - I believe LJ's coverage area is not much smaller (if at all) in comparison with FT.
3. LJ connects to police. FT states they have "their own" track and recovery team. Someone told me it's a bunch of local tow truck drivers.
4. Insurance-wise, both offer 20(?) % off comprehesive part of your insurance.
Robert are you Canadian or Dominican? Their site states that 'The Boomerang® is currently sold and distributed in Canada, in the provinces of Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia and in the Dominican Republic.' As such I dont see how will it be supported by the local police - does it come installed with a retrieve-it-yourself device and instructions?Drakkar said:I just got (this morning as a matter of fact) a Boomerang installed (www.boomerangtracking.com). It is a mandatory install by my insurance company. They are using cell phone technology to track stolen vehicle. They claim 95%+ recovery usually within an hour of the call placed. If your car is stolen and not found, they reimburse the device cost, the installation and all monthly costs since install. I could not enter the install area to see where the device is installed. It is supposed to be different for all cars.
I am not related to this company.
yes, send me $20 check monthly and i'll tell you all about it...edhryb said:Is there any "play" in the price of Lojack or will the dealer want full price? What's everyone paying for it and what about the annual maintenance costs? I'm waiting for MDX delivery in July.
Hm... let's see - you meant to say that the crooks, once they steal your car, will give it a 2-3 days cool down period? Did I get this right, DMor?DMor said:You can be sure that people are special ordering MDX's from places other than dealers. My understand of LoJack, as installed in new vehicles, is they are often parked for a cool down period lasting two days, to test for such devices. The battery on the LoJack itself will last approx. 2-3 days after being disconnected from the automobile battery. After speaking with a few cops, I've learned that many of them are picked up unscathed in residential neighborhoods during this cool down period. [/B]
