    i'm getting a new car, and i want a gps tracker on it. not those map things. i mean like if some bastard steals my car, i can find where it is.

    i know they make those. where can i buy them?

    can i use something like this: http://cgi.ebay.com/Holux-GPSlim-236...QQcmdZViewItem

    i'm trying to get it so that a gps device will stay on the car, and if someone steals it, i can go to some website or something and remotely be able to track the location of the gps device in the car.

    Long time in the business: http://www.lojack.com/

    But I think that some cell phone companies could provide a similar service with an inexpensive phone hidden in the vehicle. Many offer GPS tracking and some are even designed to have young children carry them so that parents can "track" their kids.

    how much would lojack cost? i'm getting a brand new 2006 suzuki grand vitara

    and is lojack one of those things where u have to pay them monthly? cuz that's stupid. and lojack only works with the police apparently. i want to see where it is too

    maybe i need something like this:
    http://cgi.ebay.com/GPS-Active-Track...QQcmdZViewItem

    or this:
    http://www.vehicle-tracking.com

    yea....

    and i can do the cellphone method. i have a bunch of old cellphones that i don't use, most if not all of them have the tracking ability. if i do that, will i be able to see where the cellphone is? or can only the phone company see it?

    No matter how you do it, utilizing GPS for tracking will cost you some sort of monthly fee.

    (btw, it's not like this sort of service runs by itself)
