Theft Recovery

Post by Ian »

I had a thought the other night after reading about someone's race trailer being stolen, with the car still inside.

Could the Race Capture system be used as a sort of theft Recovery helper.

If keyed up can the GPS ping and or 4G signal be logged somehow to show where the car is located when powered up?

I know there are trailer GPS options and other trackers, but theres already a MK3 in our car, I'm just curious if it's possible to track it somehow outside of the normal telemetry modes?

If the RaceCapture was set to automatically broadcast telemetry, then it would be possible to spot it's location on Podium. However, this isn't a main feature of the product, and we're not pursuing any of these features, as it's not in our core product focus.

There are many asset tracking companies doing a great job on this, however!
