Sometimes they park it somewhere discrete change the plates then wait to see if anyone collects it, some will disable the tracker - they have the know how, or straight into an enclosed truck or container closeby. They might even report a diversion incident in the opposite direction to send police away from the area.

I doubt they can solve this problem... if there is a wireless signal, it can be intercepted by thieves. Therefore I use a nice metal container, the size of the key and keep the key inside. At first it was a pain to open/close it every time but I got used to it. Peace of mind is more important to me :)

If you get a faraday pouch, don't forget to test it because I bought a "Faraday pouch" and when tested it didn't block the signal of the key.
Hi folks,
I've had my F-PACE for just over a year now.
Regarding "Faraday bags/pouches" for keys, I have tried several, and all of the ones I have tried are useless.
My test has been to put the key into a pouch , put that in my trouser pocket and then wash the car.
Everytime I go near the door handles the car unlocks, locks, unlocks, etc. as if the key was still there...
We use our Jag as a tow vehicle alot, so...
At home, we have an old tobacco tin in a desk drawer well away from outside windows, doors, etc.
When we are away from home in the caravan, we have a metal biscuit tin to keep the keys in.
This system seems to work much better than these (some cheap, some pricey) "Faraday pouches"
Stay safe all,
Tim

They take them to containers (steel containers) where no radio signals go...

I have one of the original F Paces from 2016. At that time keyless entry was an option I didn’t want. My old boss used to say ‘Technology trying to find a home for itself.’ What is the benefit of keyless entry? What’s so hard about pressing a button on the key fob?

I think all manufactures who fit it as standard should allow the owner to turn off this feature.
