The LoJack® Stolen Vehicle Recovery Unit is a small unmarked Radio Frequency transceiver that is about the size of a deck of cards. The unit is installed by a certified LoJack technician and is randomly hidden in one of over 20 places in a vehicle, making it difficult for even a professional thief to discover and disarm it.

If your vehicle is stolen, all you have to do is file a stolen vehicle report with the police. As soon as the theft is recorded in the national stolen vehicle database, your unit can be activated.* With the optional LoJack Early Warning® upgrade if your vehicle moves without your key pass present, we notify you by email, phone or text message.


*LoJack® unit activation is contingent upon the vehicle being located within LoJack’s coverage area that spans counties across 29 states throughout the US and the District of Columbia. You may find LoJack’s coverage areas at or by calling 1-800-4-LoJack.
