    Hi All,

    I am a new Clarity owner. Took the delivery of the Touring model yesterday. The dealer did not have anti-theft devices. He suggested using aftermarket services. Would anyone please suggest a good anti-theft device or GPS tracker. I live in Toronto.

    The HondaLink app does a pretty good tracking job. With the latest update it usually will show the vehicles location even when it is on the highway.

    I also use just the Honda Link instead of paying for a GPS tracker or LoJack.
    I’ll add that I added the Honda puzzle locks to the wheels since it would be over $5,000 to replace all 4. The $32 puzzle locks are cheap insurance.

    Thanks, Guys! I will get the puzzle locks installed

    I noticed a red light blinking in my car after it's locked so I looked it up in the owners manual and it is the 'Immobilizer System Indicator / Security System Alarm Indicator'

    Clarity has built-in car locating compliments of Honda.
  9. Note, the original poster asked for a good GPS tracker - not cheap, not easy to install.

    TrackmateGPS , , is popular with some owners of luxury cars.
    My suggestion would be to have the following professionally installed:

    TrackmateGPS DASH 3G GPS Vehicle Tracker. Real-time, hard-wired.
    by TrackmateGPS
    Price: $79.99

    For Canada operation, see:

    This is not a free service.
    The plans cost between $9/month and $30/month (USD) (5mins vs 3 seconds updates).

    If this makes sense for someone's car, that is their decision.
    Imho, some cars are a target for thieves. Some cars are stolen to be stripped and sold for parts. Some are stolen for joy rides. Some are stolen to be sold/used.

    Trackmategps also makes mini trackers. But, those must be installed in the correct orientation and a place that is not covered by metal. For some cars, the front/rear bumpers may work.

    I hope the above helps.

    Where did you get those locks? Do you hide the "unlocker" in some part of the car?

    It’s a Honda part and available at any dealer or one line. Check local dealer price vs online with shipping.
    I hid the key part in a bag under front seat.

    Just curious, has anyone ever heard of a stolen Clarity? Being such a limited-production car, there's not a big market for chop-shop Clarity parts like there is for other Honda cars. I wonder if the HV battery has value on the scrap market?

    Has anyone even lost their half-plastic wheels to thieves? At more than a grand apiece they're very expensive to replace so protection does sound like a good idea.
