Automotive GPS Forensics

Automotive Forensics

We conduct forensic analysis on automotive GPS systems for Law Enforcement Agencies and testing for OEM’s. We specialise in the examination of built-in OEM GPS Satellite Navigation systems, known as Infotainment or Telematics systems. Our forensic team has been conducting research since 2009 on the investigative techniques to aquire forensics data from embedded vehicle GPS systems. Together with system manufactueres we have built a solid and robust method to recover forensic data.

We can recover evidence from the following systems installed in the following vehicle brands.

BMW | Toyota | Ford | VW | Audi | Skoda | Seat (RNS510)

Volvo | Mercedes-Benz | Nissan

Many other OEM Systems which run similar operating systems. To find out more we require the VIN and the right documentation.
