Ugh, a lot of wrong info here.
Lets clear a few things up. If you're in a ship with a covert ops cloak on it (the tech 2 one), you should never, ever, get caught in lowsec unless you do something profoundly stupid. How to prevent this; Jump through a gate, don't click anything etc, let the game load the grid. Pick where you want to warp to, assign your cloak to a hotkey, say F1, click warp, press F1 a quarter second later.
I've been a pirate for years, I've never seen a pilot that wasn't brand new to flying covert ops ships get caught and targeted before they cloaked. Its just not possible to do, despite claims people with 3k scan res can do this. Eve lags about a second, I've already hit cloak before you see me on your overview. I'll pay you if you can manage to pull this off on me, you'll pay me after you waste my time and can't do it :P
You should never, ever, lose a pod in lowsec unless you are smartbombed or lose link with aggression and are probed out. pick anywhere, you don't need to align since pods instawarp, when you are tackled and certainly going to die, spam the warp button, you will instawarp.
