Can you believe that is the answer I got from my repair shop and my Insurance Agent. I don't want to put in a claim, I want my own Cart.

I'm going to install the device EDFNJ described in another current thread about carts being ripped off.

I guess the law is the law and I totally respect the rules. Can you imagine coming up on someone stealing you Car, Cart, breaking in your house, and you have to stand there like some schmo and watch them take your property? I find that difficult to accept but I guess I must.

More Yamaha carts, so they have less chance of being noticed. Neighborhood watch, take notice of any cart being towed. Camera on most phones.

What's going on? Well thieves are stealing them and then perhaps sell them to a dishonest dealer. It's about the $$$. Just install a gps tracker.

You could look into car or motor cycle alarms (for the gas version of the golf carts), many of these have a simple 2 wire installation, and some actually send a signal to the remote, so you know something is going on. The electric carts are more complicated for a number of reasons and the typical 12 VDC auto/motorcycle alarms may not work well or at all. I did help another villager with their installation, and on the electric carts you need to be very careful about how the alarm is mounted and the grounding of the alarm system.
Hope this helps.

About a year or two ago they caught someone in the Lowe's parking lot that was loading them on a trailer and taking them to Georgia

When decked out golf cart costs 14K plus new, there are thousands of them, pretty easy to hot wire, or just push onto trailer in about 2 mins, and parts virtually untraceable its going to attract market. Especially with all the methheads around.

I've got my Bride insured, but that doesn't mean I'm not taking precautions to keep her safe.

Default Two years with GPS

I believe that I am the first poster with GPS, since 2016. While admire posters for suggesting cost savings units the cheap ones, such as Ed linked to are based upon 3G technology. This will be going away. If you are going to install one use a 4G based model. The downside is you will almost certainly pay a monthly fee, typically 8.00 a month.End Could Be Near For 3G In The United States
