to all the lo-jack owners... just curious what you paid to get it installed..

Local dealer here quoted me 1500-2000 thousand. I thought it was a joke!!

is that normal??

Also, you should look into GPS products. Lo-Jack only works if the city's police force bought the lo-jack recovery device and not all cities have them. With a GPS product you will get notified if the bike is moved 9 feet from the place you armed it at and you can go online and see a map of everywhere the bike has been. You can also use this tracking feature to review routes that you took or to allow your family to track you on long trips.

Here is one such product:
GPS Snitch

you can get gps locators from places like fry's electronics for about $250-$350.00 you can track your property yourself problem is I believe there is a monthly charge. but look at it like this

Stolen Bike $15,000- god knows what depending on what you have in it
Police report = way to much time.
Insurance claim $500-$1500.00 depending on your deductible.
Showing up at the guy who stole your bikes house with your trusty 12 gauge and a few other friends ......... priceless :whistle:

Make sure Lo-Jack has coverage in your area or you will be wasting your money. I would recommend a more advanced system than Lo-Crap to be honest one that has an active GPS tracking and one that notifies you via a text message or phone call if your bike is being messed with.

I'm going the GPS Snitch route. There is nothing like a little Texas Justice to get your bike back. An added bonus, it is portable so I can put it on my daughter's car sometimes and track were she has been. Now that is a little modern day parenting. Hell, this thing could put Joey, of Cheaters, out of business.

You can do this with an iPhone, using GPS tracker. Means you need a second phone on your plan, or you hide your phone in the bike when parking in risky places.

Thanks for the input guys, gps snitch really does seem like the best bang for your buck...

I asked the dealer if i could just buy the lojack system and install it myself (my company makes and installs weather equipment for the military, so lo-jack is NOTHING compared to our systems)... the guy just gave me a nasty look and saying "you dont know how to do it" (telling me i dont know how to install it or how it works).....

F...the dealers.

I paid a total of $1200 for my install, but that included the extra Lo-Jack insurance that pays $5000 if the bike isn't recovered in 72 hours, or something like that. Looking through my paperwork now, and will update the specifics shortly...

Escort the radar detection people make a device that does GPS tracking. I was thinking about getting it next winter if I make the move to Tampa Fl.:beerchug:
