    Yes, that is true. However a tracker jammer that will actually work costs more than £100 on eBay, and even then isn't guaranteed to work.

    I have one of the cheap jammers which was affordable, but not "buttons".

    It does jam GPS effectively, but does not jam any of the four trackers I tested it with: it just makes their location info less accurate.

    I know it is a ‘piece of string’ question, but is there any information on the range that these jammers (good or bad) cover? If a tracker is at the rear of a 7m van on the chassis, will the jammer inside the cab cover that distance effectively?

    A hard wired tracker will pump out a signal for weeks or months, presumably if the jammer stops emitting a signal when the ignition is off because it is plugged into the cigar lighter, the tracker will update its location.

    Curious as being a fairly law abiding citizen it is an area I have virtually no knowledge of.

    Don't advertise that you have a tracker with stickers on the windows etc.
    If you want one I would recommend TeletrackNavman GPS Fleet Management Solution - Teletrac Navman

    Our Crane Hire firm uses them for our fleet of vehicles and they did "a friend's" campervan one for a really low monthly price and free installation.

    The jammer I have will jam the GPS signal all over a 7m motorhome, but it won't stop the tracker using GSM cell positioning to work (almost) as well as it does with GPS.

    It, like most, plugs into a cigar lighter socket so it depends on whether the socket stays live with the ignition off. Most don't.

    Not tried one of the £100+ Jammers that claim to also jam GSM.
    Thanks TeamRienza thanked for this post

    To get the best from a tracker, you do need a tracking server as well. Here's an example of mine:

    I have a Thatcham cat7 tracker and you can fit it yourself.

    Have a great record for recovery as well, (I do want mine back) doesn’t need to be hard wired in either so no finding it by following wires and resist jamming as it has different ways of sending signal

    I did a lot of googling before going for this and was very pleased with it and the company.

    Yes, we have one
    I have binned Saga today as they would not give me two weeks to have the cat 2 immobiliser upgraded to include a cat 1 alarm, even though I had it booked in!
    Gone back to Comfort and got an excellent price, includes up to 9 month abroad, and 3 years new for old at the full price and not the discounted price that I paid.
    I also don't want a tracker as I most certainly would not want it back!
