    sure RS_Kev, they can tow it away but they still can’t drive it.  Like all systems once they have it away then they have all the time to find it and disarm it.  Likewise a tracker will show where the car is for a limited time before they a have a frequency block on the tracker.

    Ghost and tracker at least gives the best deterent ( buy time), by the time the realised it was a Ghost alarm, you would have known where the car is from the tracker.  Most pros will leave the car in an area to await the owner’s claim, if no one claims it, then its not tracked

    Yes he can, did a few on Sunday at the Midlands meet. The USB sticks are Autowatch’s responsibility to provide.

    Sorry to jump on this thread, but can I ask does the Ghost have an anti-hijack facility built in, because I thought I had read that these weren’t allowed in this country, and yet on the other forum Secure My Car are advertising a Pandora system which stalls the car if driving at less than 10mph.

    Is this right?

    Sorry to ask, but I take delivery in the next couple of weeks and I need to sort the security booking now.

    Many thanks

    Hi Bigblew

    If by anti hijacking you mean auto locking on driving away then yes this is a feature the ghost can offer you,

    The resent issue / problem which the GHOST suffered, in the perfect storm scenario as Dr RS said.

    Is their an update as to what AutoWatch intend to do for customers?

    Do all Mk3 or no owners require this fix / patch?

    Who is to remedy the issue? If their is an issue?

    Cheers

    I have a USB stick to update mine, depends on when your Ghost was installed as to what update you require, your installer will be able to assist you I am sure, Mine was fitted by Chris and he sent me the USB

    @white-rs2

    I had mine updated on Monday. Owners should contact their installer and/or the local distributor to get their cars booked in for the update (which is obviously being done free of charge). Without going into details, the MK3 installation method changed around March/April this year, so if a Ghost was installed around that time or before, it may need an update.

    @rsdom and @bigblew As far as I’m aware, Ghost does have an anti-hijack feature and auto door-locking, but I was told by my installer the anti-hijack feature couldn’t be turned on. I presume this is due to technically being illegal to immobilise a vehicle in motion within the UK. Whether or not the Pandora system is strictly legal to cut the power below 10mph I’m not sure…

    Hi rsdom,

    Sorry no, what I mean is, if someone carjacks you, the car cuts itself off when moving at below 10mph.

    The new Pandora system does it, and I believe the Ghost does as well in other countries but not here.

    Ghost anti-hijack stalls after car reduces to 6mph. Like autolocking it is a switchable option at installation on the post-March install method.

    Cars on the original install method did not have their security compromised so no action required.

    A very small minority of early 2017 Mk3 installs, limited to a finite narrow time period, required remedial action. All effected group buy customers were contacted within two days of Chris developing the fix with Autowatch. The fix can be administered by owners with a USB dongle supplied by Autowatch FOC or installers. Customers of other companies were advised in a release by Autowatch to contact their official installers.

    Updated firmware is available for cars on original install but nothing to do with the security issue. Please see this related thread:

    Good Morning Chris
    If I post you out a USB Stick can you supply the latest firmware revision and full instructions on what to do and how to install.
    I just need your postal address & postcode please, if this option is agreeable to you.
    Cheers
