transponders, Datadot®s and visible ID labels that contain unique

and provide a unique transponder code to establish or confirm the
registered keeper within minutes.
Since its introduction in the 1990's,
Datatag has already slashed theft rates of both Datatagged Motorcycles
and Personal Watercraft. At the same time the recovery rates for stolen
equipment have soared, and numerous convictions have been secured thanks

SatNav and GPS Equipment
Audio Visual Equipment
