Against this scourge, the best method remains that of equipping your vehicle with a system capable of representing a decisive deterrent to thieves. Like a satellite anti-theft device complete with geolocation of the vehicle, which very often can coincide with the place of residence of the person who stole it and which also allows you to obtain discounts on insurance policies. On this front, Viasat has launched the SlimBox Moto anti-theft device which combines all the functions of an advanced “black box” with the assistance services of the Viasat H24 Operations Centre.
