    Yup the company I work for wants to track their field service vehicles with the same GPS tracking units. They transmit the GPS coordinates of each vehicle back to a receiver.

    Their used to be this radio/detector called i believe Bearclaw ... or something like that .... and you could input police frequencies into it .... and it would detect if someone was getting close to that area.

    My friend bought it ... i odnt think he liked it very much .. but thats the only thing closest to what you want.

    Tracker actually consist of two components in the car. GPS is used to get the position. A transmitter of some form or another then sends that position back to the tracking station.
    Most commercial systems (including our VTU ) transfer the data by using mobile phone technology. With our system you make a data call to the tracking device from the supplied software. This returns the lat/long and the units position is displayed on street level maps on your pc.

    I searched around and the BCT-8 seems to be the comparable current unit. The BCT-12 is discontinued.

    can be done much like n e thing else is possible. would have to spend much money and time. as well as know more than what you can search for off the internet. so if i was you i would just become a police man much easier. or become someone they buy from. good luck and remember they are our friends perhaps we can only help them see as well as us see. to much of a good thing can often turn bad. some where in the middle....

    My local PD/highway patrol/SD uses AVL to track officers. It uses either uhf/vhf/800mhz radio to send the position back to dispatch.
