The Stolen Vehicle Locator Explained
The Stolen Vehicle Locator is a sophisticated tracking technology that can help find the location of your Nissan vehicle after it has been stolen. This feature is designed with a GPS transmitter in your vehicle and a cellular technology which helps transmit information to and from the monitoring center. It will help locate your vehicle sooner, and possibly with less damage. When the Stolen Vehicle Locator finds your vehicle, the information will be sent to the law enforcement agency in the city or town where the vehicle was located, along with the customer’s contact information. This is to help ensure the safety of our customers by allowing the police to recover the vehicle on your behalf.
What To Do When Your Vehicle Is Stolen?
When you realize your vehicle is missing, the first step is to report it to the police and file a stolen vehicle report. Get ready to provide the model, trim level, body type, colour and a brief description of your vehicle, along with your license plate number. Once this first step is completed, contact NissanConnectSM Services through your phone or your computer and use the information from the filed police report. Then request to initiate the Stolen Vehicle Locator Service. The NissanConnectSM Services will stop tracking your vehicle after 14 days or whenever your vehicle has been located. However you can submit a new request or extend your current one if your vehicle still hasn’t been found. When your Nissan vehicle is located, the information about the location will the sent directly to the police, and they will let you know when your vehicle has been successfully recovered.
