Re: Ok , that is just messed up.

I call BS on this one, I had my truck stolen and the thing turned up in Saudi Arabia 9 months later.

Yet it was registered and was being driven, the reason we even found it was that I had setup the nav system to report when check engine lights came on.

The person must have connected it to wifi to sync the music library and it emailed me the report, which we sent to the police and the insurance company, no one did a thing. and it sends me frequent reports when the person syncs with the music library.

I can imagine why the Everett police and your insurance company weren't able or willing to do anything about your truck in Suadia Arabia.

Sounds like a job for Interpol!

No sounds like a job for my insurance company who is global to go and try and get the vehicle back. Instead they bump my rates to compensate for some ass who stole my stuff. It's not right.

Yeah, that's no good. Thankfully I have never had a car stolen, but I would want someone to kick some ass on my behalf if it did happen!

They have to balance the cost of writing off your car versus the cost of trying to track it down halfway around the world. Either way that cost is getting passed onto the customer.

But that is exactly the problem, they pass it on to us , but yet they won't go after the criminals who do it. Very bad precedent to set.
