GPS tracking

This is something I am interested in as well. Not so much for the road car but the rally car. The amount of race/rally cars stolen is becoming a little alarming. Hell the last one I saw taken was actually still on the trailer and the tow vehicle was stolen with car & trailer attached. Makes me all the more keener to be able to turn up at the house & retrieve my vehicle with a little of my displeasure shown to those that have it! I have tried some trackers but when they arent in cellphone reception they are useless.

You mean that you got ****ed by AVS and their **** product and then they went completely teflon-shouldered and washed their hands of it?

I don't care if they're a club sponsor, that was unforgiveable.

Speaking only of the cheap ebay ones they are worth having but you should note they will flatten a battery if the car is unused for a week or why depending on the battery its self.. although its got a built in battery the unit keeps sending gps signals so puts drain on the battery.

Well maybe for some but there are weekend only examples out there to that might get caught out/ not just cars boats or why would suffer the same. I would say its like that with all gps trackers?, perhaps a battery upgrade to go with the tracker would be a good investment in any case.

Yep mine sits in garage now. Weird how wife thinks its a bad idea to have the engine in bits on the pool table when its not getting driven...

Is that right Clint, do i?

More like your not allowed to drive the audi so you need to have your car in a drivable state.
