It's what I do for a living.

I've been selling to YB for a while now. However, it is unlikely you will get a review of it from anyone here, as my customers aren't crazy enough to start admitting online they have them.

Works great, but like anything else, you get what you pay for. For anti theft applications, you want real time, no limit tracking. That means monthly fee's like a cheap cell phone. The units themselves you would be looking at for this purpose should also be at least 175 bucks to be of any decent quality and purpose built for theft prevention. That means anti jamming, lower power consumption, more durable, etc. etc.

And to defeat jamming is no problem if you spend the money. Mine simply switch to cell tower positioning if some asshat tries to jam it.

The MT99X high power handheld cell phone jammer was designed by our factory especially for the latest 4G LTE WIMAX smart phones. This new jammer model represents the next generation of jamming technology. The jamming range is up to 15 metres.
The key features of this high class cell phone jammer are the ability to block 4G smart phones, including 4G LTE and 4G WIMAX.


GPS Jammer - ALL GPS Networks + the longest range available on the market, covers even an 18-wheeler.

If you're the type who just may be the victim of undercover GPS tracking, you should give some serious thought to this one. This GPS jammer knocks out ALL GPS logging or GPS systems Glonass + Level 1 + Level 2 that may be operating
in your vehicle, and considering that it sports a 20 meter operating
range, just about every automobile, including an 18-wheeler or
limousine are covered.








I would be interested a live demo of your product defeating a GPS and CELL jammer.

I would be interested in finding a thief that walks around carrying GPS and CELL jamming equipment. lol. The vast majority of automotive theft is opportunistic.

You're partly right though, the market is an arms race really. Someone comes up with new anti jamming tech, then someone counters with new jamming tech, and so on...

They could simply find the device and rip it out. But the point here is NEVER to advertise or even talk about having a GPS. I would much rather have one and not have to use it than need one and not have it.

Also, if some savvy dickhead were to buy the latest and greatest jamming equip, real time tracking would get him in the end. For instance, a lot of GPS companies try to sell users on the pay per use/pay per track plans. Very overpriced for what they are but seemingly cheaper than a monthly fee. My most popular unit has a 4 to 6 month battery charge on it and it transmits its location every 5 minutes for that entire time, repeatedly. At some point, a signal will get out, and all it will take is one.

Not all thieves are trailer trash ghetto people. NEWS FLASH , THIEVES have cell phones and tablets and weapons.

At first you stated, block my GPS I can use cell. both are defeated relatively easy as is finding GPS device.

It take 3 pieces of equipment.

GPS / CELL scanner. ( to see if a signal is broadcast and to locate location of device and thus deactivate it )

Our GPS detection devices are small, quick and sturdily built. Each one scans the surrounding area for common GSM, CDMA, WCDMA, and DCS frequencies, between 824 and 1980 MHz, reporting back to you exactly what it found through an LCD display on the front of the device. These GPS detection devices are anti-surveillance equipment at its finest! In a matter of minutes, you’ll know of any cell phones, GPS trackers, or hidden listening devices in your car, home or office.

So for under 1000.00 you have the "tools" 1k investment to steal a Tow Rig ,Trailer and race car is a drop in the bucket. The more informed people are the better they can prepare their defense and protect their valuables.

So other than hiring an armed guard...what else would you suggest?

BTW, if you have a GPS/cell locator, why would you need the blockers? Just find it and remove it.

Either way, you're playing the odds. You can have nothing, and just hope you get your shit back. Or you can have a GPS unit, and hope they don't have the tools to find or block it.

Quoted for truth.

I don't see the point in not running a GPS because some asshole thief 'might' have a method of circumventing it. The chances of that happening are remote.

It's up to him as an owner whether or not to consider protection, but for me and my customers it's the best option we have other than standing in the trailer with a shot gun.

I can understand your defense as you SELL GPS units. Do you inform customers that the device they are trusting CAN be improvised ? That the age group that is probably stealing this stuff is COMPUTER savvy and not just a thug?

Locks -- have Lock picks

Chains -- have cutters

GPS/ CELL -- have jammers


So other than hiring an armed guard...what else would you suggest?


NOTHING is foolproof. Heck removing wheels and tires or placing a boot http://www.orange-traffic-cones.com/PROD/RHINOWHEELBOOTH12.htmlf
This is a visual that will tell potential thief, you need to spend time here to get the prize. AS you stated they are looking of a quick haul off.

Hitch Lock http://www.bigredlock.com/bigredlockview1.html


BTW, if you have a GPS/cell locator, why would you need the blockers? Just find it and remove it.

What if it is mounted in trailer ? Is the thief going to take time to get in trailer try to locate and disable or hitch and go ? Or pick up the signal, jam it and know he HAS to find it in near future.


But remember some ass hole thief probably doesn't have tools or equipment to break a lock or cut a chain or disable an alarm. :rolleyes:


I Think you are missing the point. GPS / CELL CAN BE RENDERED USELESS. As my original post pointed out.

Well you seem a bit overeducated on gps jamming devices

Yep it is all TIN FOIL

Car thieves making clean getaway with GPS jammers



Car thief gangs have begun using imported GPS jammers to allow them to escape tracking technology.
Illicit kit imported into Europe from China operates on the same frequency as GPS satellites to drown out timing signals and confound in-car devices. Because of this in-vehicle systems are unable to either determine their position or report in to vehicle tracking centres in cases where cars or lorries registered with GPS-based tracking technology are stolen.


Vehicles "disappear from the radar" when the GPS jamming technology is deployed
, Professor David Last of the University of Wales at Bangor told The Guardian. Professor Last has acted as an expert witness for prosecutors in recent prosecutions involving the seizure of illegal GPS jamming kit.
GPS jammers also have the potential to drown out mobile signals locally, a factor that has reportedly been applied to stop truckers contacting the police in lorry heists in Germany, as well as other applications. Experts reckons some German motorists have used the devices in attempts to avoid GPS-based road charging, introduced for trucks in 2005.
Ownership of the technology is a legal grey area even though it is against the law in both the UK and Germany to either sell or use jamming devices. GPS satellite signals are low power, so jamming devices need not be powerful.
Bob Cockshott, a GPS expert who works for the Technology Strategy Board, a public sector body funded by the Department of Business, explained that a "jammer with an output of about 2 watts [can] swamp any signal from the GPS satellites over an area of a few metres".
More powerful jammers in the 20w range could potentially disrupt the GPS signals over a river estuary or at airports. The UK government has allocated a £2.2m grant to a consortium including Chronus Technology to build GPS-jamming detection systems, currently at the prototype stage of development.
Although the risk of GPS jamming has been understood for years, its misuse by crooks is far more recent, dating back perhaps only 18 months. "We need to make users of GPS aware of the threat," Cockshott told The Guardian.




Feds arrest rogue trucker after GPS jamming borks New Jersey airport test




A New Jersey truck driver is facing a fine of nearly $32,000 after leaving the GPS jammer he was using to dodge his bosses active during a visit to Newark, New Jersey's Liberty International Airport.
Gary Bojczak, then an employee of crushed-stone supplier Tilcon, was using a $100 GPS jammer plugged into the cigarette lighter in his company truck, and the FCC reports this was powerful enough to interfere with a new "ground-based augmentation system" being tested at the airport. The system uses GPS to help guide pilots on final approach to the runway.


After Bojczak parked near the ground station for the system, FAA staff noticed jamming in the restricted 1559 to 1610MHz band. Security staff with radio direction finders triangulated the interference as coming from a red Ford 150 pickup truck. When they questioned the driver, Bojczak admitted using the device and surrendered it immediately.
"Mr. Bojczak claimed that he installed and operated the jamming device to block the GPS-based vehicle-tracking system that his employer installed on the vehicle," the FCC said in a statement. "After the jammer was removed from the red Ford and turned off, the agent confirmed that the unauthorized signals had ceased."
More and more companies are tracking their vehicles via GPS to make sure the drivers aren't slacking off, but such systems are unpopular with the slackers, and can be jammed easily. Such GPS jammers are technically illegal in the US, but are freely available to purchase online and have proven to be a hit with car thieves.
