GS theft: one more bike found thanks to the Pégase Moto GPS tracker

On Sunday, 13 August 2022, on their way back from a holiday, T. and his wife decided to stay over in Grenoble for dinner and a night in a hotel. Unluckily for them, their BMW 1250 GS, which was parked outside, was targeted by thieves.
T. tells us about the eventful evening and night.

"On the weekend of August 15, my wife and I were returning from our holiday in Paris. We had planned to spend the night in Grenoble, so as not to make the journey in one go and had booked a hotel.

Our hotel had an outside car park, where I parked my bike when we arrived. I took care to position it between the lines of the two-wheel spaces and to block the Neiman.

Once we got back to our room at around 9pm, I took a shower before going to dinner and as I was leaving the washroom, I saw a Pegase Moto alert on my phone. I ran outside and saw that my bike was gone! It had been stolen in less than 30 minutes!

I immediately opened the Pegase Moto application and reported the theft. The app put me in touch with the local police, who told me that a team would come to meet me.

Less than 5 minutes later, a BAC car met me at the entrance of the hotel. I told them that I had a Pegase Moto GPS tracker on my motorbike and showed them the real-time location of my vehicle in the application. The police car then went to the indicated address and asked me to meet them there.

The address was about 20 minutes away by foot, so off I went. Once I arrived, I found the police in front of a storage unit entrance at the corner of a street. They asked some residents if they could open the main door, and this is how we got to a corridor that serves 6 individual units.

The police then tell me that they are going to hide in front of the car park entrance for a few hours, hoping that something will happen. They then advised me to go to the police station to report the theft during this time, which I did. It was now 10.30pm.

While I was waiting to file my complaint, the BAC team called me back at around 00.30 to tell me that they had my motorbike. The officer's explanations were a bit vague, so I didn’t have all the details of what really happened, but the bike was in one of the units in question, where my Pegase had tracked it!

By 3am that morning, my bike had been taken back to the police station where it spent the night until my wife and I got back on the road the next day after that long night!"

Bravo to the police for their perseverance! And thank you to T. for sharing your experience!

Comment choisir son traceur GPS ?

Les traceurs gps (parfois désignés par les termes « balises gps » ou « trackers ») sont des produits destinés à la géolocalisation et au suivi en temps réel des motos, scooters, buggy ou quads équipés de batteries 12V. Leur précision s’évalue en « nombre de positions envoyées par seconde ». À ce titre, Pégase est le plus précis du marché car il envoie jusqu’à 4 points par seconde. L’autonomie des traceurs GPS varie selon leur batterie interne et l’utilisation (ou non) de la batterie du véhicule. Pégase étant raccordé à la batterie du véhicule, il se recharge en permanence dès que le moteur tourne, ce qui lui confère une autonomie illimitée si vous roulez au minimum 2 fois dans le mois. La taille est aussi un élément important dans le choix d’un tracker gps. Pégase est plus petit qu’une carte de crédit, ce qui le classe dans les produits « mini gps » facilement dissimulables. Enfin le prix d’un traceur gps moto est à prendre en considération. Les traceurs aussi précis et perfectionnés que Pégase coutent en général 299€, mais attention : certain demandent en plus de payer un abonnement. Il faut alors calculer le coût du produit sur 3 ans pour savoir combien il va réellement vous coûter. Par exemple : un traceur à 299€ + 5€ mois revient à 479€ au bout de 3 ans. A l’inverse : Pégase est totalement sans abonnement et donc son prix ne bouge pas dans le temps. Même au bout de 3 ans il vous aura coûté 299€, soit 180€ de moins qu’un traceur gps avec abonnement.
