Lojack Eyes New Uses For Tracker
LoJack is set to introduce its second product not specifically made for cars, a tracking system small enough to be hidden on motorcycles to avoid detection and disablement by thieves. Like its car counterpart, the device will send a signal to police upon activation by LoJack.
