Listening Devices

Listening devices, or audio recorders, are small gadgets that fit covertly in cars and warns the user via voice control if someone breaks into the car. Further, they can record conversations of people who have stolen cars. This may end up providing valuable information such as their voice, mobile phone calls, and location if GPS is also available which is very useful in such cases.

Hiding Spots

  • Bottom of seats
  • Inside seats
