I have looked at getting my car a tracker because as you are in the same boat,ill only get a fifth back of the value of the car.
My idea is that you can track a mobile through one of the many sites on google for as little as 17p.if i was to rig up a cheap pay and go phone in a hidden place with a local 12v supply with an in car charger,maybe behind the dash? the idea behind that i dont think it would flatten the battery as it only charges when it is used or left for a long time,would i be right???
its not going to alert you when its stolen but at least you would no were it is.ive had one stolen from my house only to chase them on foot.it turned up a week later 2 min from my house a bare shell.ba**rds!!
what do you people think???
