Analysing the geographical location of a suspect can be crucial, and CCL’s Sat Nav forensics team has considerable experience in extracting a wealth of data from Sat Nav/GPS units.
The use of GPS technology is no longer confined to simple car-windscreen Sat Nav units. Many mobile devices now come with GPS built in – for use with Sat Nav applications or other location-specific functions.
CCL’s Sat Nav forensics team 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 Sat Nav technology.
From simple Sat Nav devices supported by standard forensic tools to more complex and obscure technology, CCL’s Sat Nav forensics team 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 Sat Nav market. For a no-obligation discussion or a technical conversation with one of our experts, please give us a call on 01789 261200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The team of analysts are also on hand to provide a targeted Sat Nav/GPS unit analysis service as part of criminal investigations.
Sat Nav Forensics – What Can Be Retrieved
The following list is an indication of the typical data which can be recovered from Sat Nav units:
- Saved favourite locations
- Details of journeys
- Track logs
- Deleted data
- Mobile phone details
These 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 Sat Nav data. This includes mobile phones and smart devices which have an integral GPS/location function.
From Which Devices?
…and many more.
This list is growing as the market grows. Mobile devices and GPS-related apps can also provide a rich vein of potential evidence.
