Since my bike was in the back of the stolen white van (incl fake plates), the police can not legally link him to my bike unless his fingerprints are found on it - still awaiting those results!
The detective that that took my statement was very helpful but could not confirm, nor deny, that it was TRACKER that led them to the van.
I collected my bike a week later from the recovery specialist, whom said I could have collected it the following day (Monday)! Despite calling the police everyday they neither confirmed where my bike was, nor when I could pick it up. It wasn't until I received the 'recovery agents' invoice in the mail that I knew what was going on - the pollice forensics team had completed taking fingerprints the night of the crime.
Some police departments, albeit forensics or crime units, obviously need to communicate more effectively with their colleagues.
TRACKER(tm) is the name of the unit which works off radio frequency - not GPS. GPS requires linkage to at least three satellites to triangulate your position - kind of difficult to get when it thrown into the back of a window-less white van. Sorry to hear about your stolen 996
Also, it doesn't matter if they disconnect the battery as it has it's own back-up battery supply. Finally, they ask that you dont advertise the fact that you have it fitted, otherwise they will look for it and rip it out during the crime.
