To protect your motorcycle from theft you can install motorcycle GPS locators that will allow you to locate it quickly through a mobile application.
The theft of a vehicle is one of the most widespread problems in large cities, used cars and motorcycles are sold to other users or disassemble them into parts and sell them illegally in the black market. For this reason, it is very important that the vehicle is well protected.
In the case of motorcycles, theft is easier since their size allows them to be transported in other vehicles without having to start them. Due to this problem, there are already GPS locators for motorcycles that will allow you to know where your vehicle is at all times.
What is a motorcycle GPS locator?
Modern motorcycles are generally equipped with anti-theft systems that allow the owner to be notified that the motorcycle is being tampered with without having disconnected the alarm system. The motorcycle, to warn the owner, emits a series of acoustic and light signals that alert the owner. In this way, if you are nearby you can quickly go to find out what is happening.
This system, which is already common in almost all models, can be combined with new technologies to make it even more difficult for thieves. In order to achieve total protection for your motorcycle, in addition to these integrated or added systems, you must have a MAPFRE Motorcycle Insurance that offers you coverage in the event of theft of your motorcycle.
GPS location systems for motorcycles are based on Global Positioning System technology. This is a system that allows locating an object that has a GPS integrated anywhere in the world. This system shows on a map the exact point where that object is located in order to locate it. Thus, the GPS navigator of the car or of your mobile phone also works to locate your exact position to interact with the preset maps in the application you are using.
Based on this technology, anti-theft systems have been developed based on the GPS system. These pagers can be installed on both cars and motorcycles and some mobile phones also include them.
It is a device that is installed on the motorcycle and that alerts the owner by means of an alert that the motorcycle is moving and the engine has not been started.
There are devices which are possible to install in helmets, such as a bluetooth motorcycle helmet as well in case your helmet is stored on the motorcycle.
How do motorcycle GPS locators work?
Through the application, the owner can know at any time where it is and if someone is taking it elsewhere. In addition to helping you know if the motorcycle has moved from the location where you parked it, its location system will be of great help to the Police, who can find it more easily and help you recover it in a short period of time.
The features that include this type of equipment are very diverse and you can generally access them through your mobile phone since they work integrated with it to be able to offer you notices.
Some of these devices have a warning system in case of emergency. It is activated when the motorcycle suffers a collision and a sudden deceleration occurs. At this point, the system alerts the contact number that has been present to indicate that an accident has occurred and the exact location where the motorcycle is. In addition to notifying family members, emergency systems will be able to locate the injured person more easily and expedite their transfer to a hospital.
Types of GPS locators
There are many different types of GPS locators on the market and some have more advanced features such as a tilt sensor that lets you know if the motorcycle has been dropped by a fortuitous hit.
The motorcycle is not only a private vehicle and more and more companies opt for it to make trips and deliveries through urban centers. Their mobility guarantees them to reduce delivery times and optimize resources. In these cases, it is very important for employers to have a GPS locator system for their company vehicles since they are their work environment.
Through this system you can check that the routes your vehicles are taking are the most appropriate and productive.
You can also control fuel levels and offer the customer, if it is a home delivery service, the location of their order at all times to facilitate the wait.
The installation of these models on the motorcycle must be done by a professional since they require a special assembly so that they cannot be removed easily.
You can install some models by yourself, but in general they are less safe since anyone can access and remove them to be able to take the motorcycle. We therefore recommend that you go to your trusted workshop so that they can carry out the installation and can provide you with all the information and maintenance that your device needs.
