You can buy PIR sensors with SIM card holders which will text you when they note a movement in front of them. A simple pay as you go SIM with a tenner on it will last ages.
You can use them to put in a lock up garage to store a car, and you'll get a text as soon as the garage is broken into - or in your case, when you leave it in the footwell and arm it, then if the car is broken into you'll get a text straight away.
why not you have a much better chance of getting it back than if you have nothing at all and lets face we all have a spare mobile laying around in a drawer somewhere with a pay and go sim in it and its not difficult to wire in a secondary cig lighter socket
wot the hell do you have to lose
Am I not right in saying they are not very accurate? Like a 1km radius circle and it could be anywhere in it? I have google maps on my phone and it doesnt pinpoint where I am. I think weak signals make it even worse. When I'm in my house it says I'm in a field about 1km away if not more :(
As others have said they aren't very accurate to be honest. I had the same idea as you and tried this service http://www.childlocate.co.uk/ and it gave me a grid of about a mile square where it said the phone was. The centre of the grid was where I know a mobile phone mast is.
