— In case of your car getting stolen, the AutoPi TMU device can immediately help you locate your car's GPS position. This is what you need to do.

How To Find My Stolen Car?

According to the most recent FBI crime data, more than 720,000 reported vehicle thefts happen each year.

Keep on reading, to make sure this doesn’t happen to your car.

Car manufacturers around the world are working every day to improve the security of vehicles, by implementing intelligent car technologies. However, this is only true for a small fraction of all the cars there are in the world.

Additionally, the most common reason for car theft is opportunity. Many thefts occur when cars are left unlocked or with the keys inside, making it easy for thieves to steal them. Additionally, cars parked in high-crime areas or on the street are more likely to be stolen than those parked in garages or secured parking lots.

How to find my stolen car?

Firstly, by implementing an AutoPi TMU device into your car, you can prevent car theft, to begin with. This can be done by using what we call Keyless Entry Solution, which allows you to open and close your car without any physical keys, by doing it through your smartphone.

Secondly, if in case your car is stolen, this is what you need to do.

If your car has an AutoPi TMU device implemented, you will have access to the AutoPi Cloud, here you will be able to track your car’s GPS location in real-time, as well as the RPM and speed, as shown in the dashboard below.

The dashboard is very intuitive and easy to navigate through, enabling you to track your car's location and movements. You can then give this information to the police, and they'll be able to locate your stolen car immediately and stop the car theft.

These features are functional due to the AutoPi device being connected to the vehicle, through the OBD2 port in your vehicle, enabling the device to extract data from your vehicle’s CAN-bus system.
