The vehicle theft rate per 100.000 people had always been higher in the USA compared to Canada.This has changed in 2017.Doesn't surprise me in Canada. Canada has a major reputation for car theft. Been going on for decades. When my daughter played high-school softball - the team went to this big tournament near Montreal. During the 2 week tournament 40+ cars were stolen from the parking lot. Happened the following year too. Teams in the states stopped going because of the extremely high car theft rate.
If people are that determined to take your vehicle, nothing will stop them. This is just a precaution for the ones who are looking for a quick ride. Otherwise much like the political climate, complain and not do anything or do something and complain.Are you kidding? Those things are a joke. Go to YouTube and you can find videos of how to defeat them in less then 5 seconds
Many pouches have two slots, one RFID and the other not. Make sure you put it in the right one. Mine works fine.Tried an RFID pouch that I had. Car locked, fob in pouch, walked up to the car touched the handle and guess what it opened lol. This pouch prevented a cell phone inside it from ringing but not the fob inside it from sending a signal. So tried a small cookie type tin and that works a charm as good as wrapping the fob in tin foil. RFID pouches/wallets, test them first. Old school always the best lol
A real anti-theft system has to be something that is not an off-the-shelf product (even if it is, the installation & triggering set-up needs to be unique/different than standard or have two different systems working in conjunction..), so a thief can not quickly figure out how to get the car started - unless being towed away, if he/she wants it bad enough, they will get it one way or another as one of the member already mentioned above.Seems like a steering wheel lock bar is an easy way to go. Kind of a hassle if you live in a crime area, but useful when traveling to a big city. Also, keeping the fob in a Faraday/RFID wallet is simple and easy, though it won't protect against the standard break-in methods combined with the diagnostic port hack.
