Analysing the geographical location of a suspect can be crucial, and CCL has a considerable capability to extract a wealth of data from SatNav/GPS units.
The use of GPS technology is no longer confined to simple car-windscreen SatNav units. Many mobile phones now come with GPS built in – for use with SatNav applications or other location-specific functions.
CCL has worked with a number of law enforcement agencies to help extract data from this growing range of devices, and has a specialist research analyst dedicated to SatNav technology.
From simple SatNav devices supported by standard forensic tools to more complex and obscure technology, CCL has a wealth of experience in extracting this type of data.
Our R&D staff are always on hand to offer advice to law enforcement agencies, and welcome dialogue from HTCUs and SSMs on emerging trends in the SatNav market. For a no-obligation discussion or a technical conversation with one of our experts, please give us a call on 01789 261200.
The team of analysts are also on hand to provide a targeted SatNav/GPS unit analysis service as part of criminal investigations.
What can be retrieved
The following list is an indication of the typical data which can be recovered from SatNav units:
- Saved favourite locations
- Details of journeys
- Track logs
- Deleted data
- Mobile phone details
...are just some of the data types which can be extracted.
It is also worth considering other devices which could hold relevant GPS data, which could be relevant to the case, or complement the SatNav data. This includes mobile phones and smartphones which have an integral GPS/location function.
